Toward an hiv cure: Team develops test to detect hidden virus
The quest to develop a cure for HIV has long been plagued by a seemingly simple question: how do doctors determine if someone is cured?

Connecting the dots between dreams and brain disease
Scientists have unveiled a connection between sleep disorders and neurodegenerative conditions like Parkinson's Disease. The work reveals REM-active neurons are responsible for turning on and off dreaming. Dysfunction in these cells, called REM sleep behavior disorder is associated in up to 80 percent of the cases with neurodegenerative disorders later in life.

Too much stress for the mother affects the baby through amniotic fluid
If the mother is stressed over a longer period of time during pregnancy, the concentration of stress hormones in amniotic fluid rises, as proven by an interdisciplinary team of researchers. Short-term stress situations, however, do not seem to have an unfavorable effect on the development of the fetus.
