Potential blood and urine test for autism greeted with skepticism

A new study suggesting a path to a blood and urine test for autism has been ...

A research team at the University of Warwick claims to have developed blood and urine tests that can effectively indicate autism in children. The study, using complex machine learning algorithms designed to identify differences in blood and urine between autism spectrum disorder (ASD) subjects and healthy children, suggests a variety of new biomarkers that could be related to the condition.

NASA preps new exoplanet-hunter for April lift-off

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) will place wide-field cameras into high-Earth orbit

The search for extraterrestrial life has shifted gears over the last five years or so, with the Kepler Space Telescope alone bringing thousands of potentially habitable Earth-sized planets into focus. Things are unlikely to slow down as NASA prepares to unleash a couple of powerful new exoplanet-hunting tools, starting with the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), which just landed at Kennedy Space Center ahead of its upcoming launch.

How ketamine relieves depression by suppressing the brain’s “anti-reward” center

A breakthrough study has revealed the potential mechanism behind how ketamine rapidly relieves symptoms of depression

The anti-depressant qualities of ketamine, initially developed as an anesthetic before drifting into recreational circles due to its hallucinogenic properties, have been a booming topic of research over the past few years. Anecdotal evidence of the drug's effects have been so strong that "ketamine clinics" have popped up all over the US, delivering experimental treatments to patients for hundreds of dollars a dose. Researchers at Zhejiang University in China have now uncovered exciting new insights into a mechanism that may finally explain how ketamine has such a rapid anti-depressant effect.
