US rat studies set new hope for rare brain disease

Brain organoid transplant

Research at Stanford University, California, is making progress to understand a rare genetic brain disease and develop potential treatments.

Timothy syndrome is marked by severe developmental issues that lead to various neurological conditions in newborns, such as autism and epilepsy, but also an early risk of heart failure, often leading to deaths in infancy.

The research – led by Sergiu Pasca for 13 years – has now developed a new technology where transplantation of modified brain organoids from human stem cells, can genetically reverse the defects of Timothy syndrome at a molecular level.

The approach, published in Nature Communications, was successfully used in cell cultures and in transplantation to rat brains.

American Roulette is another widely played variant, distinguishable by the addition of a double zero on the wheel. This version has 38 pockets, including numbers 1 to 36, a single zero, and a double zero The extra pocket increases the house edge, making the game slightly more challenging. Despite this, American Roulette remains popular due to its unique layout and fast-paced action.

French Roulette is similar to European Roulette but comes with a few additional rules that benefit the player. The La Partage rule allows players to recover half of their even-money bets if the ball lands on zero, effectively lowering the house edge. Another rule, En Prison, gives players a second chance to win back their even-money bets…
