Metacognition: Faced with a test, rats can check their knowledge first

...ng it, they would receive a large reward, but that failing the test would yield no reward. Declining the test would yield a small reward. Therefore, animals faced with the decision of taking or declining the test would, in principle, have the chance to weigh the likelihood that they would pass the test (and ...

Protein overexpression at heart of heart failure

...rophysiological studies on individual L-VDCCs from failing human heart have revealed an increased single-channel activity but the mechanism for this biophysical phenotype has remained unknown.3,4 In a paper in this week’s PLoS ONE, Roger Hullin of the Swiss Heart Center Bern, Jan Matthes of University of Co...

Trials for new drug to overcome HIV

...ortyeight patients whose existing drug regimes are failing will receive either PA-457 or a placebo in addition to their standard drugs.

HIV vaccine takes different tack to boosting immune response

...ing the 'brake,' we can hopefully overcome what is failing in the natural anti-HIV immune response."

Lack of basic research putting patients at risk

Penicillin, amoxicillin: Step aside for strep throat treatment

...losporins were more effective than any other drug, failing at half the rate of older cephalosporins and less than a third the rate of penicillin. The new findings are crucial not only for the children treated, but for their friends. Pichichero said children and parents are much more likely to adhere to taki...

Double trouble: Cells with duplicate genomes can trigger tumors

... integrity, Boveri proposed, was a result of cells failing to divide normally, generating the double-value or tetraploid cells. Normally, human cells carry a "diploid" set of chromosomes ? that is, 22 pairs plus an "X" and "Y" chromosome in males and two "X" chromosomes in female. Tetraploid cells contain 44...

Careless reporting on HIV 'could cost lives'

Pair of cancer genes found to drive both cell migration and division

...uman cancers. "In cancer, you sometimes see cells failing to divide or undergoing unequal divisions. In addition, cell migration can lead to tumors spreading and developing in different places in the body," says Peter Devreotes, Ph.D., professor and director of Cell Biology at the Johns Hopkins School of Me...

Cooperation is key—a new way of looking at MicroRNA and how it controls gene expression
