Under conditions of rabbit chronic experiments, it was shown by means of the spectral-coherence analysis that the motor polarization dominant formed by the application of DC anode to the sensorimotor cortex produced a novel structure of the intercentral relations between electrical processes not only in the ipsi-, but in the contralateral brain hemisphere. A certain "isolation" of the primary focus was observed in the cortex of the "dominant" hemisphere, which was manifested in a decrease in its delta-range coherent relations with the other cortical areas. At the dominant optimum (in interstimulus intervals), an interhemispheric asymmetry in the EEG coherence spectra was observed in the delta band between the sensorimotor cortical areas, ventroposterolateral thalamic nuclei, and CA3 fields of the dorsal hippocampi. The asymmetry increased during the testing auditory stimulation. Development of the alpha- and beta-band interhemispheric asymmetry in the structures in question coincided with realization of the motor "dominant" reaction and was suggested to be associated with movement organization.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
