Light therapy is safe and has measurable effects in the brain, according to a pioneering study by researchers from the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).

Study examines the mental health of adolescents before and after the pandemic lockdown

1 hour 9 min ago
The COVID-19 crisis has taken a psychological toll on people of all ages, but one group especially affected is teenagers. School closures and enforced social distancing have cut off many teens from major means of psychological support, putting them at higher risk of developing anxiety and depression.

New method eliminates false counts of COVID-19 cases

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads around the world, some locations have experienced decreasing numbers of cases followed by an increase.

HIV drugs cause immune-system changes that can improve resistance to viral infections

1 hour 34 min ago
Drugs currently used to keep the HIV virus in check also cause immune-system changes that might make humans better able to resist viral infections – but might also cause harmful inflammation, according to a study published today in Cell Reports Medicine.

A team of experts in disability employment summarized advances in outcomes being achieved in individuals recovering from spinal cord injury.

Shielding strategy could be ineffective in reducing COVID-19 prevalence and mortality

1 hour 44 min ago
With the recognition that certain subgroups of the population seemed to have a higher risk of developing severe disease following infection, some countries put shielding policies into place to protect them from infection.

NIST researchers develop 3D-printing technique to fabricate gels and soft materials

1 hour 46 min ago
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a new method of 3D-printing gels and other soft materials. Published in a new paper, it has the potential to create complex structures with nanometer-scale precision.

Researchers explore clinical and biological aspects of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome

1 hour 49 min ago
One of the major symptoms of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) is post-exertional malaise (PEM), the worsening of symptoms after physical or mental activities.

A new study published in the preprint server bioRxiv in September 2020 reports on the structure of this protein, as revealed by cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM).

Molecular dynamic simulations reveal detailed spike-ACE2 interactions

2 hours 27 min ago
The current COVID-19 pandemic has spread throughout the world. Caused by a single-stranded RNA betacoronavirus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which is closely related to but much more infectious than the earlier highly pathogenic betacoronaviruses SARS and MERS-CoV, has impacted social, economic, and physical health to an unimaginable extent.

Common genetic variants may influence susceptibility to COVID-19

2 hours 52 min ago
Researchers in the United States and Japan have conducted a study suggesting that a commonly occurring genetic variant influences susceptibility to infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the agent that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
