The team found coral reefs ranging from highly diverse assemblages of branching corals in sheltered waters to va...

Blame the brain for high blood pressure

...d increase blood flow within the brain. The future challenge will be to understand the type of inflammation within the vessels in the brain, so that we know what drug to use, and how to target them. JAM-1 could provide us with new clues as to how to deal with this disease. ? Professor Jeremy Pearson, Associa...

RNA enzyme structure offers a glimpse into the origins of life

...ic acids). The circularity of this process poses a challenge for theories about the origins of life. "Which came first, nucleic acids or proteins? This question once seemed an intractable paradox, but with the discovery of ribozymes, it is now possible to imagine a prebiotic 'RNA World' in which self-replic...

Studies yield insight into the numerical brain

...hey found. The researchers concluded that "results challenge the commonly held belief that numbers are represented solely in an abstract way in the human brain." The authors also concluded that their results "advocate the existence of distinct neuronal populations for numbers, which are notation dependent in t...
