A team of researchers led by a University of California, Riverside, scientist has found that various stages of the development of human malaria parasites, including stages involved in malaria transmission, are linked to epigenetic features and how chromatin—the complex of DNA and proteins within the nucleus—is organized and structured in these parasites.
Diet is important to health and well-being, and researchers bring an increasing amount of evidence in support of the saying, “you are what you eat.” So, how does diet affect our brain health in the long run? A new study investigates.
Brains tend to shrink with age, but could eating healthfully prevent this?
