Burrow forms, growth rates and feeding rates of wood-boring Xylophagaidae bivalves revealed by micro-computed tomography

Wood sinking into the deep sea is often colonized by species of the bivalve subfamily Xylophagaidae; specialist organisms that bore into it and digest cellulose with the aid of symbiotic bacteria. Very little is known about the nature of Xylophagaidae borings, Xylophagaidae abundances and population size structures, their rates of growth and their consumption rates of wood. To investigate this...


The association between depressive symptoms and physical diseases in Switzerland: a cross-sectional general population study

Depression is a global leading cause of disability, affecting 350 million people worldwide. According to the World Health Organization, annually more than 36 million people die of non-communicable physical diseases worldwide. Population-based studies around the world revealed that the presence of depressive symptoms is strongly associated with the presence of a wide range of physical diseases. This association has...


Three-weekly doses of azithromycin for Indigenous infants hospitalized with bronchiolitis: a multicentre, randomized, placebo-controlled trial

Bronchiolitis is the most common acute viral lower respiratory infection in infants worldwide causing more than three million hospitalizations annually. Indigenous children from affluent countries, such as Australia and New Zealand, are at particular risk. They are more likely than non-Indigenous children to be hospitalized, to have longer hospital stays, to receive antibiotics for pneumonia...


Neuroanatomy and transgenic technologies

Gerarld Edelman once wrote: “If someone held a gun to my head and threatened oblivion if I did not identify the single word most significant for understanding the brain, I would say ‘neuroanatomy’. Indeed, perhaps the most important general observation that can be made about the brain is that its anatomy is the most important thing about it”. Brain scientists increasingly rely on techniques enabling them to manipulate genes in restricted brain cells. In particular, engineered transgenes which encode...
