A*STAR scientists identified one of the signaling pathways linked to aggressive brain cancer

A team of scientists from the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB), a research institute under the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore, has uncovered a novel signaling pathway linked to the activation of telomerase, a cancer promoting enzyme associated with 90% of human cancers including Gliobastoma multiforme (GBM), the most aggressive malignant brain tumour with extremely high mortality rate. 304 more words

Course Schedule: 1.5 year Undergraduate Neuroscience Education

I’m all for self-studying, including going through an entire college curriculum on your own, in less time than a traditional four-year program.

based on several schools (Yale, Harvard, MIT, Johns Hopkins, University of Pennsylvania, and Oxford University) I have created a two-year study curriculum in neuroscience, using open-courseware. 137 more words

The Cigarette Alcohol love story!

One bad habit leads to another, but sometimes it can have a scientific basis of which we are not aware.

“I had a couple of drinks, so let me have a smoke and come back”, are the words we often overhear in pubs/clubs from youngsters who just find it a cool thing to do! 394 more words


Nutrition aids in the repair of neurons

It was believed that barring neurons, other types of cells are capable of regeneration. The idea that we are born with a constant number of neurons that degenerates as we age was widely believed despite evidence against the same. 470 more words
