Sleepless for science: Flies show link between sleep, immune system in Stanford study

... rhythm. In this case, these mutant flies could be kept under exactly the same light and temperature conditions as the normal flies. They looked at flies that were defective in one of two genes, called "timeless" and "period". They found that the loss of either gene's function made the flies more sensi...

Fused nasal bones helped tyrannosaurids dismember prey

"We kept the muscle numbers down because we thought they couldn't possibly be that powerful, but Tyrrell museum colleagues showed that a T. rex's lower jaw could apply 200,000 newtons of force—that's like lifting a semi-trailer," he said. "All of the T. rex's...

Rare cell prevents rampant brain activity

"It's a new way to look at landscapes and it's a new tool. The study needs to be replicated in more places before people will be persuaded, but it's cer...

Individual differences in a clock gene predict decline of performance during sleep deprivation

Male reindeer inflate a large air sac in the neck region to emit their hoarse rutting calls

...male reindeer emit a hoarse rattling with the head kept low. In this posture the inflated air sac expands the neck region. Both acoustic and optical display serve to deter rival males and thereby prevent fighting, allowing to conserve energy. Simultaneously, the performance serves to attract female mating...

Remote sheep population resists genetic drift
