Diagnosing PTSD by analyzing voices using artificial intelligence

Study tests potential telemedicine approach A specially designed computer program can help diagnose post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in veterans by analyzing their voices, a new study finds. Published online April 22 in the journal Depression and Anxiety, the study found that an artificial intelligence tool can distinguish – with 89 percent accuracy – between the voices

The economic impact of historical global warming

The gap between the economic output of the world’s richest and poorest countries is 25 percent larger today than it would have been without global warming, according to new research from Stanford University. A new Stanford University study shows global warming has increased economic inequality since the 1960s. Temperature changes caused by growing concentrations of greenhouse gases

New spintronics devices behave like neurons and synapses in the human brain

A research group from Tohoku University has developed spintronics devices which are promising for future energy-efficient and adoptive computing systems, as they behave like neurons and synapses in the human brain. Today’s information society is built on digital computers that have evolved drastically for half a century and are capable of executing complicated tasks reliably.

Quantum computing takes another solid step

A world-record result in reducing errors in semiconductor electron ‘spin qubits’, a type of building block for quantum computers, has been achieved using the theoretical work of quantum physicists at the University of Sydney Nano Institute and School of Physics. The experimental result by UNSW engineers demonstrated error rates as low as 0.043 percent, lower

Gearing up for the mass production of biomaterials

UC Berkeley innovations speed up 3D bioprinting More than 113,000 people are currently on the national transplant list. And with a shortage of donors, this means that about 20 people will die every day while waiting for an organ, according to the U.S. Department of Health. But this could change thanks to researchers at UC Berkeley, who

Researchers collaborate on potential game-changer for people with multiple sclerosis

Study shows promise in repairing damaged myelin A scientific breakthrough provides new hope for millions of people living with multiple sclerosis. Researchers at OHSU have developed a compound that stimulates repair of the protective sheath that covers nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. The discovery, involving mice genetically engineered to mimic multiple sclerosis, published

A new rapid-acting drug for depression is undergoing Phase 1 testing in human patients

A new small-molecule drug produced a rapid antidepressant response similar to that of ketamine when tested in mice, a new Yale-led study published April 16 in The Journal of Clinical Investigation shows. The effects of the drug, called NV-5138, in rodent models mimicked the rapid actions of the anesthetic ketamine, a variation of which, Esketamine, was recently

Imagine using gene therapy to correct lethal lung diseases before death

Using CRISPR gene editing, a team from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Penn Medicine have thwarted a lethal lung disease in an animal model in which a harmful mutation causes death within hours after birth. This proof-of-concept study, published today in Science Translational Medicine, showed that in uteroediting could be a promising new approach for treating lung diseases
