    AbstractThe continuous improvement of Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) displays incredible potential. This study reviews modern techniques, their respective sensors, and their commercial viability. This review of the BCI technologies and their sensors could be of use in demonstrating the importance of brain machine interfaces. Introduction A Brain Computer Interface (BCI) outfit BCI research aims to augment or repair human sensory motor or cognitive abilities with the development of advanced tech...

    Abstract Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a fatal lung disorder that happens when the alveoli of infants stop developing normally. Using mechanical ventilation on infants can cause BPD. The microvessels around the alveoli are also developed in BPD. This study aims to identify different factors important to angiogenesis in infants who have been put on mechanical ventilation. This research team found high levels of Endoglin in the microvessels and low levels of vascular endothelial growth facto...

    Abstract Many undocumented immigrants with children are detained and deported in the United States. Their children are often overlooked in discussions about immigration and law enforcement. U.S-born children of undocumented parents, or citizen-children, are at risk for adverse psychological outcomes when their families are broken apart by detention and deportation. In this study, the researchers compared the psychological status of three categories of citizen-children: (1) those living in Mexico...

    AbstractThe ICGC/TCGA Pan-Cancer Analysis of Whole Genomes Consortium has systematically documented the variation in whole genomes associated with cancer across 38 tumour types and 2,658 whole cancer genomes. Most cancer genomes will experience 4 to 5 driver mutations in the whole genome. About 5% of cancer genomes do not have any identified driver mutations, which suggests that research towards cancer driver mutations is incomplete. Both common and rare variants of mutations, such as point mut...

    Abstract The density of the interstellar medium, the matter and radiation that exists between stars in space, determines where stars form and release energy and drives how galaxies change over time. Variations in this density result from how gases move (gas motion), but the nature of this motion across space and in different galaxies is unknown. Dense gas that forms stars is most likely formed by a combination of gas instability, collision, and turbulence. However, it is still difficult to under...

    Abstract Individuals with underlying medical conditions display a worse outcome after SARS-CoV-2 infection. This study looks at several underlying medical conditions and its effect on COVID-19 infections. Studies show that obese individuals are more likely to develop infections. The fat tissue serves as a viral reservoir, which makes it harder to control the infection. infection. Diabetic individuals show a higher rate of inflammatory conditions. Hypertensive individuals are treated with drugs ...

    Introduction The leaders of medical education in the United States seem to be hesitant to support personality testing as a method of assessing medical school applicants. This is an opinion based editorial from Dr. Mohammadreza Hojat addressed why empathy should be considered in medical school admissions. Why is personality relevant to medical school admissions? Biologists and psychologists agree that personality can predict behavior. So, personality is important to medical school admissions beca...

    AbstractVaccine and therapeutic research is essential to curb the spread of SARS-CoV-2. The SARS-CoV-2 Spike (S) glycoprotein helps viruses enter cells. It is the main target of neutralizing antibodies, which bind to structures on viruses and prevent them from interacting with cells. In this study, the researchers describe multiple monoclonal antibodies, which are made by identical immune cells that are clones of a unique parent cell. These antibodies target SARS-CoV-2 and were identified from ...

    Abstract Understanding how antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 work on the molecular level could help with vaccine and drug development. In this study, the researchers analyzed 294 anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. They found that a gene called IGHV-53 is the most frequent gene that is targeted by the receptor-binding domain of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which is a major surface protein the virus uses to bind to human cell receptors and allows infection to begin. The researchers crystallized the structure of ...

    AbstractAnopheles gambiae is a mosquito that can infect humans with malaria. The doublesex gene encodes two genetic sequences, dsx-female and dsx-male that control whether a mosquito is a male or female. The female sequence contains a coding sequence called exon 5, which is highly conserved in Anopheles. In this study, the researchers found that disruption of exon 5 aimed at blocking the formation of dsx-female did not affect male development or fertility but caused females to have an intersex p...
