Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), which measures changes in blood flow throughout the brain, has been used over the past couple of decades for a variety of applications, including “functional anatomy”—a way of determining which brain areas are switched on when a person carries out a particular task. fMRI has been used to look at people’s brains while they’re doing all sorts of things—working out math problems, learning foreign languages, playing chess, improvising on the piano, doing crossword puzzles, and even watching TV shows like “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”.

In this work, we studied how the information contained in EEG signals was modified during temporal lobe seizures with altered awareness by using permutation entropy (PE) as a measure of the complexity of the signal. PE estimation was performed in thirty-six seizures of sixteen patients with temporal lobe epilepsy who underwent SEEG recordings. We tested whether altered awareness (based on the Consciousness Seizure Score) was correlated with a loss of signal complexity. We estimated global changes in PE as well as regional changes to gain insight into the mechanisms associated with awareness impairment. Our results reveal a positive correlation between the decrease of entropy and the consciousness score as well as the existence of a threshold on entropy that could discriminate seizures with no alteration of awareness from seizures with profound alteration of awareness. The loss of signal complexity was diffuse, extending bilaterally and to the associative cortices, in patients with profound alteration of awareness and limited to the temporal mesial structures in patients with no alteration of awareness. Thus PE is a promising tool to discriminate between the different subgroups of awareness alteration in TLE.As the second-largest neurodegenerative disease in the world, Parkinson’s disease (PD) has brought a severe economic and medical burden to our society. Growing evidence in recent years suggests that the gut microbiome may influence PD, but the exact pathogenesis of PD remains unclear. In addition, the current diagnosis of PD could be inaccurate and expensive. In this study, the largest meta-analysis currently of the gut microbiome in PD was analyzed, including 2269 samples by 16S rRNA gene and 236 samples by shotgun metagenomics, aiming to reveal the connection between PD and gut microbiome and establish a model to predict PD. The results showed that the relative abundances of potential pro-inflammatory bacteria, genes and pathways were significantly increased in PD, while potential anti-inflammatory bacteria, genes and pathways were significantly decreased. These changes may lead to a decrease in potential anti-inflammatory substances (short-chain fatty acids) and an increase in potential pro-inflammatory substances (lipopolysaccharides, hydrogen sulfide and glutamate). Notably, the results of 16S rRNA gene and shotgun metagenomic analysis have consistently identified five decreased genera (Roseburia, Faecalibacterium, Blautia, Lachnospira, and Prevotella) and five increased genera (Streptococcus, Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus, Akkermansia, and Desulfovibrio) in PD. Furthermore, random forest models performed well for PD prediction based on 11 genera (accuracy > 80%) or 6 genes (accuracy > 90%) related to inflammation. Finally, a possible mechanism was presented to explain the pathogenesis of inflammation leading to PD. Our results provided further insights into the prediction and treatment of PD based on inflammation.Federated ML (FL) provides an alternative to train accurate and generalizable ML models, by only sharing numerical model updates. Here, the authors present the largest FL study to-date to generate an automatic tumor boundary detector for glioblastoma.

Previous studies on Ethiopian indigenous aloes focused on documentation of phytochemical compositions and traditional uses. In this study, ADMET and drug-likeness properties of phytochemicals from Ethiopian indigenous aloes were evaluated, and pharmacophore-based profiling was done using Discovery Studio to predict therapeutic targets. The targets were examined using KEGG pathway, gene ontology and network analysis. Using random-walk with restart algorithm, network propagation was performed in CODA network to find diseases associated with the targets. As a result, 82 human targets were predicted and found to be involved in several molecular functions and biological processes. The targets also were linked to various cancers and diseases of immune system, metabolism, neurological system, musculoskeletal system, digestive system, hematologic, infectious, mouth and dental, and congenital disorder of metabolism. 207 KEGG pathways were enriched with the targets, and the main pathways were metabolism of steroid hormone biosynthesis, lipid and atherosclerosis, chemical carcinogenesis, and pathways in cancer. In conclusion, in silico target fishing and network analysis revealed therapeutic activities of the phytochemicals, demonstrating that Ethiopian indigenous aloes exhibit polypharmacology effects on numerous genes and signaling pathways linked to many diseases.
