Salty oceans provide early warning for climate change

...e a pocket of water becomes salty enough it sinks, drawing in additional water from surrounding areas, and initiates an ocean circulation loop called thermohaline overturning. The scientists discovered that a build up of salt in the waters off the coast of South Africa could help to speed up ocean circula...

Students invent protective pouch to enhance cell therapy

... to solve a real-world engineering challenge while drawing on the expertise of prominent researchers such as Arepally and Bulte. "I don’t think I could have found an opportunity like this anywhere else," he said. "That’s one of the major strengths of Johns Hopkins." Link plans to continue working on the proj...

...mission through phylogenetic analysis—essentially, drawing the virus’s family tree. The technique follows the history of a virus as it spreads from one person to another by looking at the evolution of viral genetic material in infected individuals. Drs. Brenner, Wainberg, and colleagues found that 49 per...

Mysterious 'neural noise' actually primes brain for peak performance

...ysteriously, properly calculated. The science of drawing answers from such a variety of probabilities is called Bayesian computing, after minister Thomas Bayes who founded the unusual branch of math 150 years ago. Pouget says that when we seem to be struck by an idea from out of the blue, our brain has act...

Jefferson scientists find high glucose before surgery raises risk of dangerous complications

...current study was retrospective, Dr. Mraovic says, drawing firm conclusions from the results can be difficult. The findings need to be confirmed in a randomized, prospective trial. He would like to next find out whether controlling blood sugar before and during surgery could actually result in a lower ris...

New biologic treatment for tennis elbow may replace surgery for chronic sufferers

...t may also send signals to other cells in the body drawing them to the injured area to help in repair, Mishra theorizes. Early studies have shown PRP therapy to be useful in maxillofacial surgery, wound healing, microfracture repair, and in the treatment of plantar faciitis. Treatment with PRP is still con...

A giant among minnows: Giant danio can keep growing

...e to allow them to do physiological research while drawing on the knowledge base of the zebrafish genome. The researchers saw the giant danio as the physiological model and began a series of experiments on differences in muscle growth between the fish. In this two-phased experiment, they discovered that th...

Researchers add to understanding of how brain cells communicate

...rrently limited understanding of NR1/2D receptors, drawing a direct link to human disease and memory is speculative, but I am confident that the links will become firmer as research progresses," Johnson said. ...

MIT engineers probe spiders' polymer art

...ally spin ("spinning" refers to the age-old art of drawing out and twisting fibers to form thread); instead, they squirt out a thick gel of silk solution. (One teaspoonful can make 10,000 webs.) They then use their hind legs as well as their body weight and gravity to elongate the gel into a fine thread. K...

Scientists describe new African monkey genus ?first in 83 years

UF scientists restore sight to chickens with blinding disease

... how we operate. So I did this simple little test, drawing little dots on a piece of paper. The chick, which was standing on the table, came over to the paper and started pecking at all of them. It was so exciting." Later, more precise tests showed that of the seven treated chickens, five displayed near-nor...

It's all in the genes

... "This is an exciting project with global impact, drawing on the expertise of geneticists, ecologists, molecular biologists, biogeographers and others," said Chris Greer, program director at the National Science Foundation. "The results are expected to not only shed light on how complex biological communiti...
