OKA is a potent neurotoxin and has a profound effect on cognitive dysfunction in Zebrafish. 4D and 10D OKA treated zebrafish show significant changes in gene expressions related to neuroinflammation. OKA exposed zebrafish display a substantial number of proteins that are involved in contributing to AD pathology. OKA-induced AD in zebrafish model can be used as a screening tool to explore further underlying possible mechanisms.

Climate change is driving the need for cool spaces, which currently relies largely on mechanical air conditioning that consumes power and contributes to emissions. This article examines how to create a passive cooling system with good ventilation using no mechanical equipment, achieving sub-ambient temperature cooling that could be extended to larger homes and structures. As such, it supports SDGs 3 (ensuring access to cool livable spaces), SDG 9 (more sustainable infrastructure to cool homes), and SDG 13 (reducing the need for traditional air conditioning).
