Why Alzheimer’s Disease Damages Parts of the Brain – New Genetic Clues

The red and orange areas on these heatmaps of the human brain show where the APOE gene is most active (two upper brain images) and where tau tangles are most concentrated (two lower brain images). APOE is the greatest genetic risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease, and tau tangles lead to brain damage in the disease. …

How gravitational waves open up hidden parts of the universe to human eyes

How gravitational waves open up hidden parts of the universe to human eyes

Did you feel it? On May 21, 2019, the mass of eight suns disappeared. In a universe like ours, where mass and energy are conserved, mass cannot disappear without consequences: this is how, when two distant black holes merged, the entire universe vibrated. A powerful gravitational shock wave traveled outward from the meltdown, spanning billions …
