Reconstructing the biology of extinct species: A new approach

...s and locomotor pattern is evident both within the primates alone and within the entire mammalian sample. "How an animal moves is a basic adaptation," says Walker, an expert in primate locomotion. "Now we have a way to reconstruct how extinct species moved that is completely independent of analysis of the...

Ancient retrovirus sheds light on modern pandemic

...virus that infected chimpanzees and other nonhuman primates 4 million years ago ironically may be at least partially responsible for the susceptibility of humans to HIV infection today. These findings, reported by a team of researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in the June 22 issue of Science...

Implanting dopamine generators in brain cells obtains improvement in Parkinson's in monkeys

...rch was extended to a greater number of non- human primates and for a longer period of time. The procedure involved implanting cell fragments extracted from the carotid body in the striate area of the brain. The carotid body is a small structure located at the bifurcation of the carotid artery, at the level o...

Jefferson scientists find rabies-based vaccine could be effective against HIV

However, it has been very difficult to demonstrate this analytically. Matsumoto-Oda and colleagues have developed a new index ?the estrus synchrony index* - to analyze w...

Metacognition: Faced with a test, rats can check their knowledge first

But in past work, metacognition in primates had been successfully probed by employing an ingenious technique: Animals were familiarized with a test that assessed a certain kind of knowledge that they may or may not have obtained during a "study period," and were then given a choice of taking t...

Analysis of rhesus monkey genome uncovers genetic differences with humans, chimps

...hat important features that have been conserved in primates over time can be more easily seen by comparing rhesus to human, than chimp to human. By adding the rhesus genome to the primate comparison, researchers identified nearly 200 genes likely to be key players in determining differences among primate s...

Fishy cooperation

What is truly spectacular about this study is that the entire interaction pattern—two actors who seemingly know what they are going to do and how this will benefit them—is not one we...

A buffet for early human relatives

Other studies have suggested that the diets of human ancestors and relatives became more varied about 3 million years ago when Africa's climate started getting drier and more seasonal.
