Disappearing nest egg: Researcher studying declining numbers of macaws

... says we do know that macaws are considered highly intelligent creatures. As with many types of parrots, macaws can be taught to speak English words or phrases "or any language, for that matter." They can live up to 50 years and often outlive their owners. Macaws can also be affectionate birds. "It's belie...

Microcapsules like it hot and salty

... and to be as effective as possible. This requires intelligent transport systems which initially enclose the active substances and then release them at the location where they are to be effective given the presence of certain conditions. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsda...

Where we change our mind

...world behaviors, adopted also by a wide variety of intelligent machines.?" they wrote. In their experiments, the researchers first taught volunteer subjects the layout of a computer-generated 3D "wire-frame" maze. Then, while the subjects' brains were being scanned using functional magnetic resonance, the rese...

Predators prefer to hunt small-brained prey

They avoid more intelligent prey such as monkeys which have exceptionally large brains and are more capable of escaping attacks. The study, carried out by Dr Susanne Shultz, from the School of Biological Sciences, focused on predators from Africa and South America such as the...

Microbes transform 'safest' PBDEs into more harmful compounds

...formed into more toxic forms, we need to make more intelligent policy decisions with respect to how, or even if, we should use these compounds," Alvarez-Cohen says. PBDEs are used in televisions, computers, wire insulation, upholstery and many other products containing plastic and foam. If these products overhe...
