Recent results obtained by climatologists working at the Laboratory of Environmental and Climate Science (LSCE: CEA/CNRS/UVSQ, Paris-Saclay) explain the relations between periods of drought and CO2 exchange between vegetation and the air. These different phenomena have a significant impact on increased levels of CO2 in the Earth's atmosphere.

Researchers discovered a novel interaction between two proteins from the measles virus. This ultra-weak interaction, involving only four amino acids situated in a very flexible and dynamic protein region, is essential for measles virus replication. This newly discovered interaction constitutes a new target to treat measles infection, but also infection by other viruses from the same family, that comprises highly dangerous human pathogens.

In the conscious state, different areas of the brain, even though not physically connected, can be activated simultaneously, achieving a rich repertoire of brain activities. Under general anesthesia, this property is blocked. Regardless of the type of the anesthetic agent, general anesthesia led to a rigid inflexible configuration of information flow within the brain: brain activity is maintained, but is restricted to physical anatomical connections, leaving it without the possibility of generating more flexible information flows.
