Stimulation of a distinct brain circuit that lies within a brain structure typically associated with fearfulness produces the opposite effect: Its activity, instead of triggering or increasing anxiety, counters it.

On May 26, 2016, researchers at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center reported the first case of what they called a “truly pan-drug resistant bacteria.” By now, the story has been well-covered in the media: a month earlier, a 49 year old woman walked into a clinic in Pennsylvania with what seemed to be a urinary tract infection.

Campylobacter Bacteria, Gastroenteritis, and Foodborne Illness

Campylobacter bacteria (number-one cause of food-related gastrointestinal illness in the United States). This scanning electron microscope image shows the characteristic spiral, or corkscrew, shape of C.

Trypanosoma brucei, a protozoan parasite, is the causative agent of African sleeping sickness in humans (T. b. gambiense and T. b. rhodesiense) and nagana in cattle (T. b. brucei).Two T. brucei parasites (blue pseudocolor) are pictured in close interaction with innate immune cells in the liver of an infected mouse. These interactions will probably result in phagocytosis of the parasite.
