When you're tired, your ability to interpret subtle expressions of happiness and sadness can begin to deteriorate, researchers have found. However, the ability to read more primitive survival-based emotions, like anger and fear, remains intact.

 

Hydrophobic proteins on virus surfaces can help purify vaccines

 

Through experimental and computational tests, new research expands on the theory of virus surface hydrophobicity. By being slightly water-repellent, the outer layers of proteins in virus capsids affect how it interacts with cells and the environment. Understanding this more can improve vaccine production and virus detection.

 

Encouraging results for patients with aggressive brain cancer

 

Patients diagnosed with a glioblastoma, and who undergo current standard treatment, have a median survival of 16 months. Based on recent information on the mechanisms of chemotherapy, a team of researchers developed a new clinical approach overcome treatment resistance that increased the median survival to 22 months -- bringing much needed hope to those affected by this aggressive disease.

 

Strong interaction between herbivores and plants

 

Important findings have been revealed on the interaction between nutrient availability and the diversity of consumer species in freshwater environments. A better understanding of this interaction will contribute to developing possibilities to maintain biodiversity in all kinds of ecosystems.

 

Blood fatty acids reveal your child's diet

 

Eating lots of sugary candy may strain the liver, alter the body’s fatty acid metabolism and increase the risk of cardiometabolic diseases already in childhood. Children’s blood fatty acid composition reflects their diet – but luckily this composition can be influenced by lifestyle interventions, say researchers.
