Given its huge reliance on patients self-reporting their symptoms and then doctors interpreting those symptoms, diagnosing depression is far from a simple undertaking. Breakthroughs in neuroscience are continuing to shine a light on how this mental health disorder operates, including the revelation of distinctive markers that may make it much simpler to diagnose. New research further adds to this understanding by highlighting how certain brain activity may be linked to certain moods, raising the prospect of a biological signature that could one day be used as an indicator of the illness and help those devising new therapies to treat it.

Author(s): Longwen Tang, N. M. Anoop Krishnan, Jonathan Berjikian, Jared Rivera, Morten M. Smedskjaer, John C. Mauro, Wei Zhou, and Mathieu Bauchy Despite recent advances, glass still breaks. This remains a major limitation for cover glasses used, for instance, in smartphone screens. Here, the authors explore the possibility of benefiting from nanoscale phase separation to significantly increase the fracture toughness of glass, while retaining its transparency. Based on peridynamic simulations, they investigate the nature of the toughening mechanisms at play and find that nanoscale phase separation can yield up to a 90% increase in fracture energy. This establishes phase separation as a promising route to develop novel tough, yet transparent glasses
