Chemical 'band-aid' prevents heart failure in mice with muscular dystrophy

...e went into cardiac failure. The polyoxamer had an instant corrective effect in the mdx mice, which really surprised us." In future research, U-M scientists want to test P188 on mice with other types of dystrophies and see if it works as well when given as injections, rather than infusions. Metzger emphasi...

'Shifty-eyed' Monkeys Offer Window Into Brain's Social Reflexes

...direction of the monkey-image gaze, said Platt. An instant after the monkey images appeared, the subjects showed infinitesimal, involuntary eye movements in the same direction the monkey image was looking, found Deaner and Platt. Also importantly, said Platt, the shift in attention was very temporary, as wo...

How fish hear and make sounds at same time

...receptive to external sound again. In fact, for an instant following a vocalization, the ear may actually become more sensitive than it was prior to the voicing. By better understanding these complex systems, the study offers new avenues for researchers to explore the causes of human deafness. "Hearing los...

Worms know bad food when they smell it

...th that flavor in the future. The smell elicits an instant wave of nausea." That aversion is triggered by signals that the olfactory system sends to the brain. Similar forms of learning have been observed in a broad range of animals, including invertebrates such as snails and fish. "We don't know if they fee...

Mice studies illustrate potential of chimp/human antibodies to protect against smallpox

...dy demonstrated that the hybrid antibodies provide instant protection against the vaccinia virus and likely smallpox and are potentially more potent and more specific than the treatment we currently have available," says Dr. Purcell. The hybrid antibodies also offer a potentially significant advantage over V...

Wisconsin scientists find a way to make human collagen in the lab

...ould stand perpetual guard in the body and provide instant warning of invading viruses or bacteria. "We can have total control of what goes on these very thin extended fibers," says Raines. "We are able to build these molecules up one atom at a time and we can manipulate them in very precise ways." The new...

Oops! Researchers publish new findings on the brain's response to costly mistakes

...has looked inside the human brain and captured the instant when someone makes a costly mistake. What they've found is interesting by itself, but may also help scientists understand mental health problems such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD. In general, the U-M scientists found that a particular p...

Arctic coring expedition continues to yield new clues

...15 degrees Fahrenheit in the (relative) geological instant of about 100,000 years. Arctic sediment samples were largely unavailable until 2004, when ACEX scientists recovered the first deep-ocean sediment samples from beneath the ice-laden waters near the North Pole. ACEX, only the second scientific exped...

Stimulation of the semicircular canals can artificially control human walking and balance

... signals the movement of the head, the brain makes instant complex "mathematical" calculations to discard the parts not important to balance or steering, such as the movements we make when looking around, and then transforms the remaining signal into two components. One component is used to control steering,...

Hopkins researchers discover how brain protein might control memory

...ke more Arc protein almost immediately. "Arc is an instant and reliable readout for active cells in the brain," says Worley. But although scientists knew that active cells were making copious amounts of Arc, no one knew exactly what Arc was doing in those cells until now. To figure out what Arc was doing...

Clinicians and researchers usually rely on a patient's memory to collect data on symptoms such as fatigue. But it's difficult for patients to go back in time, says Eileen Hacker, clinical assistant professor and l...
