Ablation of pigment epithelium-derived factor can lead to aging of the eye

In a recent study published in International Journal of Molecular Sciencesresearchers have found that loss of pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) can cause eye aging. Study: Deletion of PEDF induces senescence and phagocytosis defects in RPE. Image credit: HQuality/Shutterstock Background The retina is the light-sensitive tissue located at the back of the eye. Additionally, age-related retinal …

The new soft implantable probe can monitor fluctuations in chemicals in the brain

The new string-like implant can monitor fluctuations in chemicals in the brain, as a fitness tracker for the brain. An imbalance in brain chemistry is the basis of many neurological diseases. These same brain chemicals also play a role in gut health. So Stanford researchers have invented the “NeuroString” – a soft implantable probe that …
