Social ties may preserve memory, slow brain ageing 31.5.2018 General News
A strong social network of friends and family may help preserve memory and protect it from the ill effects of ageing, a study in mice suggests. Scientists from the Ohio State University in the US found that mice housed in groups had better memories and healthier brains than animals that lived in pairs. The discovery bolsters a body of research in humans and animals that supports the role of social connections in preserving the mind and improving quality of life, said Elizabeth Kirby, an assistant professor at Ohio State. "Our research suggests that merely having a larger social network can positively influence the ageing brain," said Kirby, lead researcher of the study published in the journal Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience. "We know that in humans there's a strong correlation between cognitive health and social connections, but we don't know if it is having a group of friends that's protecting people or if it's that people with declining brain health withdraw from their human ...

Scottish researchers discover novel malaria parasite behaviour 24.5.2018 General News
Researchers from a Scottish university have demonstrated a novel parasite behaviour which offers a potential new target for malaria diagnosis and intervention. The new discovery in the parasite's biology is revealed across a set of three studies led by the University of Glasgow's Wellcome Centre for Molecular Parasitology, which are published in 'Nature Communications', 'Science Advances' and 'MBio' journals this week. Malaria, a blood borne disease caused by single cell parasites, remains a major global public health issue with millions of cases, and nearly half a million deaths every year. The researchers have discovered that malaria parasites can occupy sites outside the bloodstream, specifically in the bone marrow and spleen where red blood cells are formed. The studies show in animal models and human infection that this is the major niche for the development of malaria transmission stages and a significant reservoir for the parasite's replicative stages. The researchers ...
