    Stem cell-derived organoids mimic parathyroid tissue

      Stem cell-derived parathyroid organoids (PTOs) may pave the way for future physiological studies and drug screening, according to a study published in the journal Stem Cell Reports. Parathyroid glands contain stem cells capable of forming organoids, research has shown. These organoids secrete hormones, express specific markers, and exhibit similar responses to drugs, mimicking patients.   The co-senior research author of the paper, Sherto Cruyver of the University Medical Center Groningen in the Netherlands, said that this is the first time in the world that parathyroid stem cells have been isolated and these cells have been maintained as organoids in the laboratory for a long time. The new study uses PTO as…

    Half the brain can recognize words and faces, study finds

      A study of brain plasticity and visual perception found that people who had half their brains removed as children could accurately identify the difference between two words or two faces more than 80 percent of the time. Given the volume of brain tissue removed, this accuracy highlights the limits of the brain’s ability to rewire itself and adapt to drastic surgery or trauma.   The findings, published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, are the first-ever attempt to describe neuroplasticity in humans and understand whether a single brain hemisphere can perform tasks that are normally performed separately by the two…

      The definition   of Once, due to the cold weather, I wanted to buy a cup of hot drink on the vending machine, and saw the slogan on the button selling latte: “So hot, so delicious.”   This slogan revealed that it is Based on the concept of “low calories, it’s not good”, perhaps it can be further understood. Its implication is “the latte needs to be sweetened with sugar”.   In short, this slogan does not use words that are directly related to calories, such as “adding sugar” and “adding a lot of cream, and the taste is smooth”, but uses vague and ambiguous words such as “delicious”, which makes me quite…
