Nicotine triggers the same brain reward circuitry as opiates

...ceived nicotine. The researchers also studied the relationship among nicotine, the environment, and this reward pathway. They conditioned mice to associate a specific test chamber with receiving nicotine, finding that the mice would prefer to stay in that chamber when given a choice. The researchers found that j...

Bitter or sweet? The same taste bud can tell the difference

...in when it was stimulated by a bitter taste." The relationship between NPY and CCK may provide the answer. A few years ago, Herness' laboratory was the first to find CCK in taste bud cells. These results suggested that CCK may tell other cells ?those attached to nerve fibers that transmit messages to the brain ?...

What comes first…the chicken, the egg, or the bad attitude?

...high-performance broiler breeder hens explores the relationship between the hen's growth and reproductive performance, to improve our understanding of how producers can better manage the birds' body weight during puberty, and also during the egg-laying period that comes later. No other broiler breeders research ...

A novel method to measure circadian cycles

Marine bacterium suspected to play role in global carbon and nitrogen cycles

...ssue of the journal Nature. As the true range and relationship of Archaea to other microbes is revealed, information about N. maritimus will serve as benchmarks for all microbiologists. Biochemical and genomic studies are already underway to learn the mechanisms by which N. maritimus uses nitrogen and how its p...

Insight into our sight: A new view on the evolution of the eye lens

...eye protein has revealed a previously unrecognized relationship between certain components of vertebrate eyes and those of the more primitive light-sensing systems of invertebrates. The findings help clarify our conceptual framework for understanding how the vertebrate eye, as we know it, has emerged over evoluti...

This was the first documentation, in any plant or animal, that signaling molecules in development can actually behave as envisioned by Turing 50 years ago. This work...

Ancient DNA confirms single origin of Malagasy primates

The simulation, called AgentCell, has possible applications in cancer research, drug development and combating bioter...

Forsyth scientists find three bacteria associated with oral cancer

...ward oral cancer. The team also seeks to study the relationship of oral bacteria to a variety of cancers and diseases. According to Goodson, "This research is important for the questions it raises. Do oral bacteria contribute to oral cancer? Can oral bacteria be used as indicators of disease? As we address these...
