(eLife ) The size of a fly’s eyes and nose reflect both its behaviour during mating and its habitat preferences, according to a new study published today in eLife.
Possible Breakthrough in Alzheimerâs Research: âLove Drugâ Oxytocin Found to Reverse Damage in Mice Brains
Scientists are hopeful their discovery might be a breakthrough in Alzheimer’s research, after oxytocin is found to reverse cognitive damage in mice brains.
(University of the Basque Country ) The Quaternary International journal has published a study by the UPV/EHU’s Department of Stratigraphy and Palaeontology describing, in detail, the climate changes taking place in the Bay of Biscay over the last 37,000 years. Specifically, it details these changes mainly through the study of foraminifera and ostracod species predominating in various climatic intervals. This palaeoceanographic study is part of a broader one covering the last 150,000 years.
(Princeton University) Princeton University researchers explored how patterns of protein activity direct fly embryonic development by using ‘optogenetic’ techniques to rapidly and precisely turn Ras/Erk signaling on and off. A paper published July 23 in Current Biology by Heath Johnson, Nareg Djabrayan, Stanislav Shvartsman and Jared Toettcher describes these findings.
Summit Lake in remote northwest Nevada is home to the only self-sustaining, robust, lake population of Lahontan Cutthroat Trout, North America’s largest freshwater native trout species. Research to understand the reasons why this population continues to thrive, where others have not, will be used to protect the fish and its habitat – as well as to apply the knowledge to help restore other Nevada lakes that once had bountiful numbers of the iconic fish that historically reached 60 pounds.
Earthâs previous polar reversal happened 780,000 years ago. Are we facing another one soon? Hear from the authors of a new study, on a strange anomaly that might be a clue.
Scientists investigated the performance and profitability of two future generations of cows born to mothers exposed to heat stress during pregnancy.
Alongside the COVID-19 pandemic, climate-induced disasters and extreme weather have continued to wreak havoc in the Global South, adding to the burden of poor countries
A new, 10-year study by researchers at the University of California, Davis, examined 35 dog breeds and found vulnerability from neutering, and the age at which they are neutered, varies greatly depending on the breed.
Last summer’s catastrophic bushfires significantly increased the risk of local extinctions of this magnificent species
