Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients

... mice without the over-active IL-1beta. Through extensive experiments, the team showed that the mice simply weren’t making fewer plaques, but rather that the body was better at getting rid of the plaques. The team suspects the involvement of brain cells called microglia, the major immune cell that rushes to...

Modeling the restless brain

Left-right wiring determined by neural communication in the embryonic worm

...look at this early period." A similar system of extensive gap junctions appears in the developing mammalian brain, but researchers have yet to figure out exactly what it does. In worms, at least, they now know that it's involved in differentiating the left and right sides. Now, Bargmann says, she's interest...

Fused nasal bones helped tyrannosaurids dismember prey

... were stronger than unfused carnosaur nasals. This extensive fusion increased the strength of such dinosaurs as the T. rex and helped them apply powerful bites that could splinter bone. With other carnivorous dinosaurs, says Snively, their skull bones might shear apart slightly when they chomp down on other an...
