Study: Brain Regions in the Reward Network is Related to Schizophrenia with Persistent Negative Symptoms[Aug 16, 2017]

Dr. Raymond Chan and his team from the Neuropsychology and Applied Cognitive Neuroscience (NACN) Laboratory, CAS Key Laboratory of Mental Health, Institute of Psychology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have recently conducted a meta-analysis to quantitatively examine the grey matter volume in patients with PNS.


Graphene and Phosphorus Make Fire-stopping Foam[Aug 15, 2017]

GENG Jianxing from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and colleagues have developed a non-burning polyimide foam that is strong enough to support a beaker of liquid weighing 6kg, but light enough to balance on a rose. Its flame-retardant properties come from 2% of red phosphorus-hybridised graphene - a combination of graphite and red phosphorus produced by ball milling.

Integrated-omics of Deteriorating Pancreatic Islets Reveal the Chronological Order of T2D-related Molecular Events[Aug 15, 2017]

In the study published online in Diabetes, Prof. XU Tao's group at Institute of Biophysics (IBP) of Chinese Academy of Sciences generated integrated temporal transcriptomic and proteomic profiles of pancreatic islets in GK rats. This quantitative dataset provided a comprehensive picture of the mechanisms responsible for islet dysfunction and will allow researchers to identify potential interventions to prevent β-cell failure and deterioration in human T2D.
