    Structural, mechanistic, and physiological insights into phospholipase A-mediated membrane phospholipid degradation in Pseudomonas aeruginosa

    Florian Bleffert et al.
    Membrane homeostasis in bacteria relies on the controlled degradation of endogenous phospholipids by intracellular phospholipases A, however their structures and catalytic mechanism are still poorly understood.

    Multi-tract multi-symptom relationships in pediatric concussion

    Guido I Guberman et al.
    In paediatric concussions, there are a multiplicity of ways that brain damage gives rise to symptoms, most of which are missed by conventional statistical approaches and study designs.

    Type 2 diabetes mellitus accelerates brain aging and cognitive decline: Complementary findings from UK Biobank and meta-analyses

    Botond Antal et al.
    Patients with Type 2 diabetes show patterns of neurodegeneration consistent with accelerated brain aging, including impaired cognition and loss of brain volume, which are more severe in those with increased disease duration.

    Perception of an object’s global shape is best described by a model of skeletal structure in human infants

    Vladislav Ayzenberg, Stella Lourenco
    Six- to twelve-month old infants, who have little linguistic or object experience, classify objects by relying on a invariant representation of global shape known as the shape skeleton.

    Development and evaluation of a machine learning-based in-hospital COVID-19 disease outcome predictor (CODOP): A multicontinental retrospective study

    Riku Klén et al.
    The generalizability of CODOP in distinct world regions and its flexibility to reckon with the changing availability of hospital resources makes it a clinically useful tool potentially improving the outcome prediction and the management of COVID-19 hospitalized patients.
