Scientists: Memories lost to Alzheimer's may be recoverable

Memories lost to AlzheimersIn experiments with mice that have early-stage Alzheimer's disease, scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology found memories are still stored in the brain but the condition prevents them from being accessed.

The scientists used a optogenetics, a technique that involves activating brain cells with light, in a proof-of-concept study showing missing memories may still exist in Alzheimer's patients' brains -- but scientists need a method to unlock them.

Scientists find compounds restoring antibiotic efficacy against MRSA

MRSA antibiotic efficacy Antibiotics that no longer work against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, were found to be effective in mice when paired with two synthetic compounds, according to a new study.

MRSA is resistant to a group of antibiotics call ß-lactam, which includes penicillin and methicillin, but scientists at the Merck Research Laboratory designed two compounds they found make the bacteria susceptible to the drugs.

Report: U.S. Company Bungled Ebola Response

US company botched ebola responseAn American company that bills itself as a pioneer in tracking emerging epidemics made a series of costly mistakes during the 2014 Ebola outbreak that swept across West Africa — with employees feuding with fellow responders, contributing to misdiagnosed Ebola cases and repeatedly misreading the trajectory of the virus, an Associated Press investigation has found.
