What is Fear? New Research to Help with PTSD Treatment

US scientists from the University of California were able to substantiate how fear formulates in the brain. Both researchers discovered that in a stressful situation, the hippocampus reacts to a specific context and encodes it in memory, and the amygdala activates protective functions, including the reaction in the form of fear. Hippocampus is a complex brain structure embedded deep into temporal lobe. It plays a major role in learning and memory. It is a plastic and vulnerable structure that gets damaged by a variety of stimuli.

Russian Researchers Proposed New Class of The Anti Cancer Drugs

Russian scientists in collaboration with Belarusian researchers proposed a new class of drugs that will aid in the treatment of cancerous tumors. The drugs proposed are based on using palladium and platinum. The class of drugs based on platinum derivatives is now considered one of the most effective in the fight against tumors.

The most common of them in clinical practice is cisplatin that contains a heavy metal complex with a central atom of platinum surrounded by two chloride atoms and two ammonia molecules in the cis position. It is a white powder with the molecular formula PtCl2H6N2, and a molecular weight of 300.05.  However, its poor water solubility and high toxicity led to the development of new anticancer drugs based on platinum group metal compounds.
