Updated Brain Cell Map Connects Various Brain Diseases to Specific Cell Types

Researchers have developed new single-cell sequencing methods that could be used to map the cell origins of various brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. By analyzing individual nuclei of cells from adult human brains, researchers have identified 35 different subtypes of neurons and glial cells and discovered which of these subtypes are most susceptible to common risk factors for different brain diseases.

Physicists want to create novel compounds that surpass diamonds in heat resistance and nearly rival them in hardness. In a paper in the journal Materials, they investigate how the addition of boron, while making a diamond film via plasma vapor deposition, changes properties of the diamond material.

Three billion years ago, the sun shone weaker, but Earth stayed surprisingly warm. Carl Sagan thought a greenhouse effect must have been to thank. A model built on 359 chemical processes has finally arrived at scenarios with a reasonable chance of producing enough methane to do the trick.
