Sprout Social : News & Views: A Nature paper finds that immune cells called macrophages shut down major metabolic pathways during ageing. Restoring metabolism in these cells is sufficient to alleviate age-associated cognitive decline in mice.

Sprout Social : Some intestinal illnesses might be a blessing in disguise. A study in mice shows that bowel infections can help gut-dwelling microbes to fight off pathogens. #ResearchHighlight

Sprout Social : Research published in Nature reports observations from space of the launch of blue jet lightning from a thunderstorm cell into the stratosphere.

Sprout Social : Many factors will determine how soon scientists can detect the impact of COVID-19 vaccines on the pandemic. Among them are the extent of vaccine coverage, the effectiveness of shots at preventing disease and infection, and the rate of viral transmission.

Sprout Social : Editorial: The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals program to end poverty and protect the environment. Researchers need to launch a rapid response.

Sprout Social : A paper in Nature shows causal topographic mapping of activity between mouse cortex and striatum during a variety of behaviors.

Sprout Social : Scientists are getting to grips with the role of mechanical forces in the body, from embryo to adult.

Sprout Social : Ethan Wilk, who begins an undergraduate programme this fall, writes how a detailed outline of his proposed expenses and timeline helped him to win a competitive award to study endangered trout.

Sprout Social : Scientists studying COVID are increasingly highlighting the role of autoantibodies: rogue antibodies that attack either elements of the body’s immune defences or specific proteins in organs such as the heart.

Sprout Social : A report in Nature describes a new device with remotely reconfigurable mechanical properties.

Sprout Social : A year into the pandemic, much remains unknown about the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in children, prompting calls for increased surveillance and testing to inform decisions about school closures.

Sprout Social : Grant reviewers for the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) report shorter attention spans and lower engagement during video grant-review meetings than in those held face-to-face, finds a survey of 3,288 reviewers.

Sprout Social : Jobseekers who are from immigrant and minority ethnic groups face 4-19% lower contact rates from recruiters using an online Swiss hiring platform, according to a Nature paper. The research also finds evidence of gender-based discrimination.

Sprout Social : A comprehensive dataset presented in Nature reveals the pathobiology of SARS-CoV-2 infection in the lung and the specific mechanisms of COVID-19 pneumonia.

Sprout Social : A Nature paper suggests lake heatwaves may increase in intensity and duration by the end of the century. It indicates the average duration of lake heatwaves could increase by three months on average and some lakes may reach a permanent heatwave state.

Sprout Social : Regular exercise boosts good health. Now, research shows that as physical activity increases, benefits to the heart do, too — even for dedicated fitness buffs. #ResearchHighlight

Sprout Social : Cognitive decline can be reversed in mice by treating them with a drug that reduces inflammation and boosts the metabolism of immune cells called macrophages, according to a paper published in Nature.

Sprout Social : The 2020 #AltmetricTop100 includes 12 papers published in Nature, including a study that shows human-made material outweighed natural biomass on Earth. See the whole list here.

Sprout Social : Editorial: An agreed nomenclature for coronavirus variants will both stop the use of place-based names and provide researchers such as epidemiologists with the commonly agreed labels that they are keenly awaiting.

Sprout Social : Nature surveys the science behind the loss of the sense of smell and taste related to COVID-19.
