Seeing Alzheimer's amyloids

Researchers have created a stunning three-dimensional picture of an Alzheimer's peptide aggregate using electron microscopy.

Video game protein folding

A new game, named Foldit, turns protein folding into a competitive sport. Introductory levels teach the rules, which are the same laws of physics by which proteins form.

Observing cell functions

Biologists are turning their attention to discovering how the many thousands of structural and control genes function.

Warming up for MRI

Standard magnetic resonance imaging, MRI, is a superb diagnostic tool but one that suffers from low sensitivity, requiring patients to...

Accelerated image analysis

Researchers have discovered how to significantly speed up critical steps in an automated method for analysing cell cultures and other biological specimens.

Neurons from all sides

A new technique that marries a fast-moving laser beam with a special microscope will enable scientists to get a three-dimensional view of neurons.

Blood supply to medial and lateral breast tumours

The use of MRI is effective in differentiating the blood supply to medial and lateral breast tumours, which is important in treatment planning and prognosis.

Detecting prostate cancer with MRI

The use of MRI without endorectal coil can detect prostate cancer and provide undistorted images with diagnostic image quality and accurate tumour localisation.

Visualising magnetic fields

Researchers have succeeded in a direct, three-dimensional visualisation of magnetic fields inside solid, non-transparent materials.

Genes in action

Researchers describe the development of gene probe eye drops that make it possible to monitor and detect tissue repair in the brain of living organisms using MRI.

MRI charts blood volume

A special type of magnetic resonance imaging can depict changes in blood volume in the brain that often precede cancerous transformation of brain tumours.

Precise 3-D imageing of the human brain

New technology at is enabling researchers to translate the most abstract, complex scientific concepts into clearer, more precise 3-dimensional images.

Brain imaging study

Researchers have conducted the first-ever brain imaging study that directly contrasts two different techniques for emotion regulation.

Scans spot hidden tumours

Full-body PET/CT scanning can detect unsuspected, treatable tumours in 3 of 15 patients with Li-Fraumeni syndrome, a rare genetic cancer disease.
