Drug That 'Tags' Decision-making Areas Of The Brain May Aid

... electrical properties ofthe cell. The human brain coordinates billions of neurons to mediatecomplex behaviors such as an infant learning to recognize his or herparents, a senior citizen learning to play piano, or the process ofaddiction following repetitive exposure to specific drugs. Thesebehaviors all result ...

Researchers unlock mechanism creating jigsaw puzzle-like plant cells

...ascinating mechanism of biochemical crosstalk that coordinates cells into tissues, a deeper understanding of how plant cells chemically talk to each other to grow or recede in an ordered way remains unclear. ...

Gene keeps neural cells on correct developmental path

...iggers the expression of an ensemble of genes that coordinates nervous system development by removing REST in three distinct phases, ending with shutting down the REST gene. "The cell gets rid of all the excess protein, kicks it off the DNA, then stomps on its head so it can't make RNA," Mandel said. "We can't ...

Researchers reveal secrets of flying snakes

... 3-D reconstruction of the head, midpoint and vent coordinates of the snake throughout its trajectory. Socha found that the snake uses its ribs to change its body shape; it flattens from head to vent. The snake takes control of its flight by undulating through the air in a distinctive S-shape as if swimming ?mo...

Sensor web simulation investigates technique to improve prediction of pollution across the globe

..."sensor web." This interconnected "web of sensors" coordinates observations by spacecraft, airborne instruments and ground-based data-collecting stations. Instead of operating independently, these sensors collect data as a collaborative group, sharing information about an event as it unfolds over time. The senso...

New technology shows our ancestors ate…everything!

...rvals, perform its series of scans, and collect 3D coordinates for each data point," said Teaford. The result is like a map of the earth that shows mountains, valleys and plains in full relief, only at a microscopic scale. As anticipated from traditional examination of fossilized teeth, the tooth surfaces of P....

Picking apart how neurons learn

...stibulo-ocular reflex. The vestibulo-ocular reflex coordinates eye movements with head movements, allowing us to perform activities such as reading in a moving automobile. "We've long known that LTD underlies responses like the vestibulo-ocular reflex. This study gets at the heart of how LTD occurs, specificall...

Testes to incubate stem cells

...ovine cells in culture," says Elaine Dzierzak, who coordinates a EuroSTELLS project at Erasmus University Medical Centre in Rotterdam. Testicular cultures could also prove an ideal system to test compounds that might affect sperm-production such as endocrine disruptors or therapeutic drugs. ...

Study suggests that publicly available genome data may contain small but significant errors

... as a mapmaker can locate landmarks at the correct coordinates by consulting a three-dimensional rendering of a geographical map. The distance between pairs of landmarks can be used to assemble physical maps, as an aid to sequence assembly, or as an independent method for validating sequence assembly and indicat...

New brain hormone puts brakes on reproduction

... the dorsomedial nucleus of the hypothalamus, that coordinates and integrates information from external stimuli, the senses and from motivational and emotional inputs. "It's likely serving lots of functions relating to motivated behaviors, such as reproduction or feeding," Kriegsfeld said. Kriegsfeld and Bentl...

Salk researchers make fast strides towards understanding how our body controls walking

"The Golgi is a central station in all cells, through which all intra-cellular traffic passes," Segev explained. Specific su...

Powerful genome ID method extended to humans

...own as "optical mapping." Restriction maps provide coordinates on chromosomes analogous to mile markers on freeways. Lead author Anton Valouev, a recent graduate of Waterman's lab and now a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, said the algorithm makes it possible to optically map the human genome. "...
