Study of energy and health in Africa focuses spotlight on charcoal and forest management

Mechanism for memory revealed in neurons of electric fish

...lectricity is a snapshot of the environment. These guys are swimming around and discharging at a very regular frequency. They're digitizing their environment." But a problem occurs when the fish are close to each other. They can jam each other's electrical signals. In response, one of the fish will jump ...

UCSD team unmasks family of immune system invaders

... "As a result, these bacteria proteins are the bad guys that make you sick," said Alto. "Instead of curing the illness by giving a patient antibiotics, it might be possible to target these effectors, turning their virulant actions into something benign." The researchers used a molecular "fingerprinting...

Paleontologists learn how not to become a fossil

...y upon the soft tissues of another organism. These guys have a lousy fossil record," Kidwell said.

'Scent of a woman' tells male redback spiders to find a mate

...ack spiders (Latrodectus hasselti) that give these guys an edge in their deadly dating game. The study in the April 4 issue of Current Biology reports that males develop faster based on the population density of males and females around them -- the first time such a phenomenon has been shown in any animal...

Life and death in the hippocampus: what young neurons need to survive

...ween mature cells vying for connectivity and young guys competing with both the mature cells and their peers to fit in. You are selecting for the cell that performs best in this environment." The Gage lab previously showed that the rate at which new neurons emerge from stem cells depends on an animal's ...

New light microscope sharpens scientists' focus

...e a long way in the last year, from two unemployed guys with just an idea to having good jobs and a good set of data," Betzig noted. "Now if we can begin to refine this technique, we should really be able to take it to a lot of new applications." ...

Evolutionary forces explain why women live longer than men

...aped by eons of sexual competition, is putting the guys at a disadvantage in longevity. Male immune systems are somewhat weaker, and their bodies are less able to process the fat they eat, Kruger said. And behavioral causes---smoking, overeating, reckless driving, violence---set men apart from most women....

The large variation in muscle output was intriguing because natural selection, over time, would weed out the submissive, poor flyers if th...

Evolution and the workaround

...mechanisms to perform old tasks. Somehow the bad guys find a workaround. That observation led Norman Pavelka, Giulia Rancati, and Rong Li, researchers at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research in Kansas City, MO, to step back and consider the basic process by which cells adapt to the loss of seemi...

Genetic surprise confirms neglected 70-year-old evolutionary hypothesis

The gene, called JYAlpha, is one of the same genes that is essential for sperm motility in the flies, as well as in humans and other mammals. Masly's work shows a back...

Study finds mercury prevalent in many western fish

In birds, the effects of mercury contamination are neurological or behavioral ?and often subtle. They may not clean their young, or they may leave...

How plague-causing bacteria disarm host defense

Effector proteins are the bad guys that help bacterial pathogens do their job of infecting the host by crippling the body's immune system. In essence, they knock down the front door of resistance and disarm the cell's alarm system. Now, researchers at the University of California, S...
