Curtin university researchers have developed membrane to separate from air using a ceramic ion transport membrane

Oxygen can be separated from air using a ceramic ion transport membrane, a device permeable only to oxygen. Commercial efforts to use this technology in oxygen production and other applications have so far failed due to insufficient rates of oxygen transport, or flux. Researchers at Curtin University have developed a uniquely structured ceramic ion transport membrane for oxygen separation that shows remarkably high flux. The membrane employs a multitude of microchannels extending into the dep...

HOWARD HUGHES MEDICAL INSTITUTE – Whole Genome Sequencing Identifies New Genetic Signature for Autism

Autism has genetic roots, but most cases can’t be explained by current genetic tests. Now, patterns found in autistic children’s genomes – the complete set of genetic instructions inside cells – have revealed a new genetic signature for the disorder. The signature helps explain cases that don’t have other genetic markers of autism. The results, reported September 28, 2017, in the journal Cell, suggest that scanning a patient’s entire genome could help researchers better understand the suit...

Imperial College London research suggest – Magic mushrooms may ‘reset’ the brains of depressed patients

Patients taking psilocybin to treat depression show reduced symptoms weeks after treatment following a 'reset' of their brain activity. The findings come from a study in which researchers from Imperial College London used psilocybin – the psychoactive compound that occurs naturally in magic mushrooms – to treat a small number of patients with depression in whom conventional treatment had failed. In a paper, published in the journal Scientific Reports, the researchers describe patient-reporte...
