The authors explore automatic and early detection methods for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) using deep learning techniques in order to improve the speed and accessibility of current testing methods. They propose a deep transfer learning model as a new approach for accurately detecting categories of Alzheimer's disease. The research serves SDG 3's aim in highlighing and seeking better treatment for AD, an increasingly serious global public health issue.

SCFA contribute to the glutamate-glutamine shuttle by acting on glutamine synthetase. Long-term SCFA diet alleviates cognitive and spatial memory defeat in APP/PS1 mice. Long-term SCFA diet reduces Aβ deposition and abnormal phosphorylation of tau. SCFA promote astrocyte-neuron metabolic coupling to reduce oxidative damage.

SLAS Discovery, Volume 28, June 2023

In this study, a novel reporter substrate named C8CF3-coumarin was synthesized and then characterized, an assay protocol was developed to identify small molecular activators of PLCγ enzymes, and a proof-of-principle high throughput screen was conducted using PLCγ2 and the LOPAC1280 library. These studies showed that C8CF3-coumarin could indeed monitor PLCγ enzyme activity and identify potential small molecule activators from a screen. The identification of such small molecule PLCγ2 activators would be of great utility to the Alzheimer's disease research community by serving as both chemical probes to study the modulation of PLCγ2 and as potential therapeutic agents.

Monitoring the ocean carbon cycle is key to improved understanding. Satellites play a major role in our global carbon monitoring system. To make full use of satellite observations for ocean carbon monitoring the remote-sensing community needs to work closely with in-situ data experts, physical and biogeochemical modellers, Earth system scientists, climate scientists and marine policy experts.

Increasing shipping traffic in the Arctic Ocean creates an emerging need to understand the consequences of maritime operations on the Arctic environment and coastal Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, as well as potential governance responses. To address this need, we examine recent shipping trends and assess their impact on Arctic environments and communities. Our arguments are novel, and are built around contemporary empirical investigations and published scientific studies, reports, and government documents.

A critical reflection on fisheries conservation in the Mekong River is offered here. Adaptive co-management helped balance conservation and livelihood outcomes. No-take zones facilitated basic fish conservation measures led by local fishermen. Fishermen perceiving livelihood benefits of conservation supported no-take zones. Long-term mechanisms to support community-led conservation initiatives are needed.

The authors of this paper developed and tested a culturally appropriate food picture-sort frequency tool that is feasible and acceptable to both Navajo children and adults. This tool and its indices have the potential to measure the change for school-based intervention studies among the Navajo Nation because of its cultural appropriateness, ease of administration and low burden, and the convergent validity and reliability of its indices.
