Bioluminescence at the service of a novel cerebral imaging technique

... Drosophila) induces a secondary response which is delayed by about 10 to 15 minutes at the level of neuronal axonal projections. It is therefore probable that this new response (hitherto totally unsuspected) intervenes in learning and memory phenomena. Furthermore, using this imaging technique, it has...

Global changes alter the timing of plant growth, scientists say

...mulating future conditions. But plant growth was delayed by elevated carbon dioxide, consistent with the fact that grasses--which make up the majority of plants in this system--were flowering later. "Unless the growing season is extended, slower plant growth under elevated carbon dioxide could reduce the o...

Scientists discover way to block growth of prostate cancer cells

At this week's AVS 53rd International Symposium & Exhibition in San Francisco, Michael Lochhead, a bioengineer at the Denver biotechnology company Accelr8, described a ne...

Brain protein improves stroke symptoms in rats, even when injected after 3 days

... of the stroke. The study also shows that regular, delayed injections of G-CSF, starting up to three days after experimental stroke, are effective in restoring motor functions in rats. G-CSF is known to improve recovery after a stroke, and it is currently being tested for use in humans. The BMC Biology stu...

The resulting mutant mice showed tremors, delayed ability to right themselves when turned over, abnormal gait, altered transmission of visual signals, and an enhanced startle response to sudden noise. Electrophysiological studies of the mutant animals' brain and spinal neurons showed significant ...
