New insights into the biomechanics of axonal atrophy can aid in finding a cure to neurodegenerative conditions

In a new study, the researchers from the Raman Research Institute (RRI), Bengaluru, in collaboration with researchers from France and Chile, provide us with an understanding of the physical forces that drive axonal beading and retraction. The findings could hold new insights on understanding neurodegeneration. The results of the study, funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), are published in the Biophysical Journal.

Researchers from RRI, Bengaluru and their collaborators at Leiden University, Netherlands, and the American University of Beirut, Lebanon, delved into the lives of nuclear stars, and how gravity influences their orbits. They have identified instabilities, driven by the gravitational interactions between the stars themselves and the central black hole, this can drive a disc full of stars on nearly circular orbits into a state where the disc has more elongated orbits.

Researchers at Raman Research Institute, Bengaluru, are exploring the properties of single walled carbon nanotube (CNT) immersed in aqueous triblock copolymer solution. The newly formed CNT-polymer hybrid could replace the use of carbon nanotubes by itself, thanks to its remarkable mechanical, thermal and electrical properties.
