New brain defibrillator aids epilepsy patients

New brain defibrillator aids epilepsy patients

A study published by Nature Communications reports that a new invention capable of automatically stopping epileptic seizures has been developed. Among the authors were members of the MTA-SZTE Impact Oscillatory Neuronal Network Research Group headed by Antal Berényi. The goal of the procedure, developed specifically for patients suffering from epilepsy non responsive to drugs, is to utilise just the right amount of electric stimuli necessary to stop the seizure.

Carbon capture and storage do not make up for necessary climate protection measures – EASAC report

Carbon capture and storage do not make up for necessary climate protection measures – EASAC report

What opportunities are presented by the various carbon capture and greenhouse gas preventative (usually referred to as negative emission) technologies? How much can these technologies contribute to the fulfilment of the Paris climate accord of 2015? These are the main questions the European Academies’ Science Advisory Council (EASAC) sought to answer in their latest report, published in February 2018.

Statement by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences regarding the implementation of György Lukács’s Testament

Statement by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences regarding the implementation of György Lukács’s Testament

In accordance with his last will and testament, the processing of the legacy of philosopher György Lukács has been initiated by the Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The documents are continuously being published on the internet, and hundreds of letters are already available to anyone. The steps of implementation were settled during a one-on-one meeting between László Lovász, President of the Academy, and the Chairman of the Board of Trustees at the Lukács Archive International Foundation (LANA). Contrary to earlier plans, the Academy shall maintain the research unit in Lukács’s former flat and hopes that LANA, as it has indicated, will provide support in terms of external financial resources and utilisation of the flat for a wider range of users. In order for LANA to be able to attract external resources, a joint statement was drafted and signed by representatives of the Academy and LANA on 6 February 2018.

Microscopes, molecular analytics, and artificial intelligence –  complex methods developed by researchers in Szeged could help revolutionize tissue analysis Microscopes, molecular analytics, and artificial intelligence –  complex methods developed by researchers in Szeged could help revolutionize tissue analysis

Microscopes, molecular analytics, and artificial intelligence – complex methods developed by researchers in Szeged could help revolutionize tissue analysis

Researchers in Szeged have developed an entirely new revolutionary method in single cell analysis which combines the advantages of high performance microscopy and molecular analysis. Thanks to the intelligent software system that combines multiple instruments, this innovative method is capable of selecting from a multitude of cells those individual cells that are critical in determining the behaviour of the entire tissue section. The appropriate cells are lifted from the sample without damaging the surrounding cells and are molecularly analysed.
