UI researcher studies deafness in fruit flies, humans

... voltages the receptor cells generate as the flies listen to the love song. By comparing the electrical impulses generated by the normal flies to those generated by myosin VIIA mutant flies, they showed that the myosin VIIA gene is essential for hearing in flies, as it is in humans. Now that they know the ...

Watching the brain switch off 'self'

...as to ask subjects to look at the same pictures or listen to the same musical phrases, but to perform two different kinds of processing on them. To explore sensory processing, the researchers asked the subjects to use buttons to classify the images as animal/non-animal, or the musical passages as trumpet/no...

UC Riverside psychologist explores human perception, finds 'wow factor'

..., Rosenblum said. One experiment asked subjects to listen to recorded sounds and try to recognize where on campus the recordings were made. "We picked different places -- a men's bathroom, the old gym, a walk-in closet -- and it turns out that people are terrific at it," Rosenblum said.In another experimen...

Research tracks whales by listening to sounds

...oratory at OSU's Hatfield Marine Science Center to listen for undersea earthquakes ?a program now directed by Robert Dziak. While listening for earthquakes, the OSU researchers begin picking up sounds of ships, marine landslides ?and whales. An engineer at the center, Haru Matsumoto, then developed an auto...

Researchers show how brain decodes complex smells

...ng to the researchers, it's as if the brain has to listen to each musician's melody to hear a symphony. Humans may rely on the same smell decoding system, because mice and men have similar brain structures for scent, including an olfactory bulb, the researchers said. "We wanted to understand how the brain...

Funding and bureaucracy, not access to journals, are chief obstacles to scientific productivity

...hing, the study shows the need for policymakers to listen more carefully to its scientists," says Dr. Ian Rowlands, Centre for Information Behaviour and the Evaluation of Research (CIBER). "By making small changes in work practices and addressing the sources for productivity bottlenecks, we can ensure the f...

With fruit fly sex, researchers find mind-body connection

...th two good copies of the gene were more likely to listen to love songs and to copulate. Interestingly, reducing the activity of doublesex or retained also allowed females to court like males, even though they lack the male-behavior-inducing activity of fruitless. By manipulating fruitless and retained i...
