We are rapidly demystifying cancers, exposing the molecular mechanisms underlying tumors and leading the search for the next generation of targeted cancer therapies. We see a future where every cancer and every patient has a cure.
Associate Professor Sreekanth Chalasani and colleagues have found a way to look at the brain activity of a worm and tell you which chemical the animal smelled a few seconds before. It sounds like a party trick, but these findings help scientists better understand how the brain functions and integrates information. The goal, of course, isn’t to read the minds of worms, but to gain a deeper understanding of how humans encode information in the brain. These findings help scientists unravel what happens when this encoding goes awry in sensory processing disorders and related conditions, such as anxiety, ADHD and autism spectrum disorders.
