In young mice, gregariousness seems to reside in the genes

...ism. In past research, the social capacities of rodents have been studied primarily in the context of behaviors associated with sexual reproduction, territorial defense and parental care. Those studies, say Lahvis and Panksepp, do not account for the many forms of social interaction that occur prior to se...

Discovery could lead to better control of hemorrhagic fever viruses

... them to more severe infection when exposed to the rodents that carry the viruses. Choe's lab is now trying to find the cellular receptor for other viruses that cause hemorrhagic fever in humans. In 2003, Choe's lab collaborated with Farzan's lab to identify angiotensin converting enzyme2 (ACE2) as the re...

One population had a genetic abnormality that causes a total lack of mast cells; the other population was made up of normal, wild-type mice. Both populations of infected mice developed pneumonia. "We thought the mice without mast cells...

OHSU lab finds meth receptor that could lead to therapy

Scientists discover new species of distinctive cloud-forest rodent

...tless. I. barbarabrownae belongs to a family of rodents known as "spiny rats" because most of the species in that family bristle with spines. Its discovery has necessitated a re-examination of this tropical American family, especially its closest relatives, the bush-tailed tree rats found in South America...

Does a peptide affect the heart's response to social isolation?

...disease. Prairie voles (ochrogaster) are small rodents that demonstrate features of social interactions similar to humans and therefore provide a useful animal model for investigating how the social environment influences behavior and cardiac function. Earlier studies by this research team showed that wh...

Hopkins researchers discover how brain protein might control memory

...d behaviors ranging from song learning in birds to rodents being aware of 3-D space. In people, Arc may be one culprit behind certain long-term memory-based behaviors like drug addiction, the researchers say. "We think Arc controls how brain cells learn and associate behaviors and remember them over a lo...

MIT material stops bleeding in seconds

...biodegradable liquids can stop bleeding in wounded rodents within seconds, a development that could significantly impact medicine. When the liquid, composed of protein fragments called peptides, is applied to open wounds, the peptides self-assemble into a nanoscale protective barrier gel that seals the woun...

These are just two of the symposia taking place at the conference. There are plenty of fresh and interesting story line...

UWM brain research supports drug development from jellyfish protein

...rning and memory deficits. These tasks first teach rodents to associate one stimulus with another and then test their memory of the association. During training, the stimuli are separated by a brief period of time, which requires the animal to maintain a memory of the first stimulus. The "stimulus free" peri...

Mice learn tasks that may help treat human psychiatric disorders

The problem, however, is that laboratory E. coli are the "98-pound weaklings in the real world," not offering barriers as robust as other bacteria maintain outside the lab, he says. So he has begun studying the type of bact...
