Psychedelic drugs promote neural plasticity in rats and flies



Posted: 12 Jun 2018 03:52 PM PDT


Psychedelic drugs may have mind-altering powers in the physical sense, too. A new study has found psychedelics, specifically DOI, DMT, and LSD, can change brain cells in rats and flies, making neurons more likely to branch out and connect with one another. The work supports the theory that psychedelics could help to fight depression, anxiety, addiction, and post-traumatic stress disorder.


A new kind of vaccine based on spider silk

In order to strengthen the efficacy of vaccines on the immune system -- and in particular on T lymphocytes, specialized in the detection of cancer cells -- researchers have developed spider silk microcapsules capable of delivering the vaccine directly to the heart of immune cells.

Small molecule PM-43I prevented and reversed preexisting allergic airway disease in mice and cleared through the kidneys with no long-term toxicity.


The true power of the solar wind

The planets and moons of our solar system are continuously being bombarded by particles from the sun. On the Moon or on Mercury, the uppermost layer of rock is gradually eroded by the impact of sun particles. New results show that previous models of this process are incomplete. The effects of solar wind bombardment are much more drastic than previously thought.


Physicists discover how to create the thinnest liquid films ever

Physicists have discovered a fundamentally new way surfaces can get wet. Their study may allow scientists to create the thinnest films of liquid ever made -- and engineer a new class of surface coatings and lubricants just a few atoms thick.


Researchers map brain of blind patient who can see motion

Since the visual processing centres of her brain went dark after a stroke, a Scottish woman has been unable to see objects. However, she has developed the remarkable ability to see objects in motion, neuroscientists at Western University in Canada have discovered.

A new wireless smart-home system could help detect and monitor disease and enable the elderly to 'age in place.'
