'Inverse planning' system improves brachytherapy treatment for prostate and other cancers
...lan. Having a system so fast means physicians can dynamically
adjust and re-optimize the treatment plans as they insert needles. This was impossible to do before." The new software should help clinics provide more consistent cancer treatment that does not depend solely on the skills of the treating physician...
Human brain region functions like digital computer, says CU-Boulder professor
...lia is essentially a big switch that allows you to dynamically
turn on and off different parts of the prefrontal cortex," O'Reilly said. The brain as a whole operates more like a social network than a digital computer, with neurons communicating to allow learning and the creation of memory, according to O'Reil...
Newly discovered behavior in cancer cells signals dangerous metastasis
...al cells. "We can visualize the genes as they are dynamically
changing," he said. "We can define the cell types by observing their splicing patterns." According to Garcia-Blanco, the cellular switch that is believed to guide the regulation of splicing is a protein called Fox. Both mesenchymal and epithelial ce...
How the neuron sprouts its branches
...orient toward one dendrite, it takes off and grows dynamically
to become the longest dendrite." The researchers also used tracer molecules to track the molecular cargo secreted by the Golgi, said Ehlers. "We saw very clearly that this cargo that originates in the Golgi gets directed towards the one longest dendr...
Scientists directly view immune cells interacting to avert autoimmunity
...ne system involves multiple cell types interacting dynamically
in three dimensions, which is very difficult to analyze in vivo -- and nearly impossible to authentically reproduce in vitro." The team of immunologists and diabetes researchers used the new microscope to show that when Treg cells are absent, the pot...
Six organizations vie for INFORMS 'science of better' innovation prize
...arate model formulations allows Swift & Company to dynamically
schedule beef fabrication operations at five plants in real time as orders are received. This scheduling and capable-to-promise application has made Swift & Company a supplier of choice while providing a 200% ROI in its first year of production. The...
