Scientists build on case connecting inflammatory disease and depression

... For about 30 years, depression has been linked to low levels of serotonin, a brain chemical that regulates mood. Drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as Prozac ease depression by elevating serotonin levels. "Although SSRIs can be used to treat immunotherapy-induced depress...

Researchers review evolutionary history of modern algae

...ern phytoplankton began to form at a time when the low oxygen conditions characterized much of the world's oceans. Since a cyanobacterium was capable of producing oxygen and nutrients, another bacterium, or a one-celled organism, ate the cyanobacterium, kept a part of the cyanobacterium undigested, and l...
