The incidence of neurodegenerative diseases continues to increase, yet the pathogenesis underlying most neurodegenerative diseases, notably in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), remains elusive. Neuronal support cells, or glia, are known to play a crucial role in ALS. Microglia are the resident immune cells of the CNS and also have neurotrophic support functions. Thes...

Controllable growth of two-dimensional iron carbide in steels under accumulation deformation
Publication date: Available online 8 February 2020Source: MicronAuthor(s): Yong Zhang, Zhenhai Xia, Fang Liu, Zuoxiang Qin, Xing LuAbstractTwo dimensional (2D) materials such as metal carbides are attractive owing to their unique structures and various potential applications. Although various synthetic methods have been developed for fabrication of 2D materials, it is still challenging to directly synthesize 2D carbides. Herein, we propose a new approach to convert in-situ 3D iron carbide into defect free 2D one in conventional carbon steels by controlling the deformation accumulation to drive atomic rearrangement within t...
