Mental illness can dramatically shorten life – up to 20 years less

Those who suffer from mental illness usually live shorter: This is the result of a new study by the Australian Western Sydney University. Because sufferers develop up to twice the risk of comorbidities, this leads to a reduced life expectancy. In extreme cases, the difference is just 20 years. The researchers evaluated about 100 studies and meta-analyzes for their study. …

Clock cells bring neuronal processes in line Metronome of our brain discovered? – scinexx

Neuronal Clock: Scientists have discovered neurons that could act as a "metronome" of our brain. These clocks seem to reconcile neuronal processes, allowing the coordinated processing of sensory stimuli. In mice, the even activity of metronome cells improves the perception of touch stimuli, the team reports. Further studies must now show whether there are similar clocks in the human brain. …

New results on HIV reservoirs

HI viruses can persist in reservoirs for years in the human body. They are the biggest obstacle to the cure of HIV but are still under-researched. In the world's largest longitudinal observational study on HIV reservoirs, a research team from the University Hospital Zurich has gained new insights into these reservoirs. So far the largest study evaluates blood samples from …

Special structure makes liquid with ferruginous nanoparticles a real ferromagnet First liquid permanent magnet generated – scinexx

Exciting breakthrough: Researchers have for the first time converted an iron-containing liquid into a true permanent magnet – something that was previously considered impossible. The new liquid magnet is still magnetic even when no external magnetic field is applied. This breakthrough opens up a whole new field of research and could find numerous applications, as the researchers in the journal …
