Could problem drinking be reduced with just one shot of ketamine?

An incredible new experimental study from University College London has found a specifically timed infusion of ketamine can effectively rewrite maladaptive reward memories. In this study a number of subjects with harmful alcohol behaviours significantly reduced their drinking for several months following a single ketamine treatment. Ketamine was originally developed as a novel anaesthetic in

Spotting navigation problems in early Alzheimer’s disease using virtual reality

Virtual reality (VR) can identify early Alzheimer’s disease more accurately than ‘gold standard’ cognitive tests currently in use, suggests new research from the University of Cambridge. The study highlights the potential of new technologies to help diagnose and monitor conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, which affects more than 525,000 people in the UK. In 2014,

A five-minute scan of blood vessels in the neck during mid-life could predict cognitive decline ten years before symptoms appear

A five-minute scan of blood vessels in the neck during mid-life could predict cognitive decline ten years before symptoms appear, claims new UCL research funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF). The findings were presented at the AHA Scientific Sessions conference in Chicago. If confirmed in larger studies, the scan could become part of routine screening

Could graphene become superconducting?

Scientists at the London Centre for Nanotechnology and Department of Physics & Astronomy at UCL have discovered a potential way to make graphene – a single layer of carbon atoms with great promise for future electronics – superconducting. The study, performed in collaboration with Stanford University and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is published in Nature

What is the immersive news experience really all about?

A virtual reality scenario called “We Wait” gives people an immersive experience of the plight of refugees waiting to be picked up by a boat on a shore in Turkey to be illegally taken to Europe, crossing a dangerous stretch of sea. This was based on BBC news reporting of the refugee situation, but deliberately

AI can predict heart disease deaths better than doctors

A model developed using artificial intelligence (AI) is better at predicting risk of death in patients with heart disease than models designed by medical experts, a new study from the Francis Crick Institute shows. The study, published in PLOS One, adds to the growing evidence that AI could revolutionise healthcare in the UK and beyond. So far, the

Tumeric eye drops could be a new treatment option for glaucoma

Eye drops containing a derivative of turmeric reduce the loss of retinal cells in rats, finds a new study led by UCL and Imperial College London researchers. Loss of these cells is known to be an early sign of glaucoma and the eye drops could in time be a new treatment option for the condition.

Doubling the distance at which data can travel error-free through transoceanic sub-marine cables

A new way to process fibre optic signals has been demonstrated by UCL researchers, which could double the distance at which data travels error-free through transoceanic sub-marine cables The new method has the potential to reduce the costs of long-distance optical fibre communications as signals wouldn’t need to be electronically boosted on their journey, which

Unique polymer fibres that are strong, tough and light as a feather

Strong and tough yet as light as a feather – materials with this exceptional combination of properties are urgently needed in many industrial sectors and in medicine, as well as being of great interest for scientific research. A research team from the University of Bayreuth has now developed polymer fibres with precisely these properties. Together

New atomic sensors could lead to a new generation of smart materials

Scientists at Berkeley Lab, UC Berkeley convert diamonds’ atomic flaws into atomic sensors with front-row seats to a quantum world of materials under extreme pressure Since their invention more than 60 years ago, diamond anvil cells have made it possible for scientists to recreate extreme phenomena – such as the crushing pressures deep inside the Earth’s

A significant new frontier in medical diagnostics: “Fingerprinting” individual human cells

Researchers have developed a method that allows them to identify single cells with a unique genomic profile from a tissue sample. Researchers say a new method to analyse data from individual human cells could be a step-change for diagnosing some of the most devastating diseases, including cancer and autoimmune disease. By combining single cell analysis

Have we found the neural circuit that regulates alcohol consumption?

The UNC School of Medicine lab of Zoe McElligott, PhD, found that alcohol consumption is regulated by the activity of a particular set of neurons in a specific brain region, a discovery that could lead to a better understanding of why some casual drinkers develop an alcohol use disorder. Scientists have known that a region
