...uable, as her high frequency samples have captured temporal variability that otherwise would have been missed. Because of Anya's interest, in May and June 2004, Holmes, Clapp, and Alexander Zhulidov, a Russian scientist who had been on the Lena trip, visited her school in Zhigansk, Siberia, to talk about sci...

Precise Timing Enabled Pig-to-rat Transplants To Cure Diabetes

...chool of Medicine in St. Louis have learned that a temporal "window of opportunity" was critical to their earlier successes in treating diabetic rats with embryonic pig tissues. In those experiments, published in 2004, researchers were surprised to find that they didn't have to give anti-rejection drugs to d...

If the time series results produce a lower value than the microarray summary, the protocol indicates that the researchers have missed a g...

Study ties 'new' cell-death mechanism to developmental and degenerative brain disorders

...er's disease takes place in the hippocampus of the temporal lobe and that of Parkinson's disease occurs in the substantia nigra of the brain stem. Pulst said the new findings on neurodegeneration do not necessarily supersede the prevailing hypothesis of defective proteins. In fact, the two may be linked. "...

Carnegie Mellon scientists show brain uses optimal code for sound

... components are represented only in terms of their temporal relationship with each other. That's because the intensity and basic frequency of a given feature are essentially "kernalized," or compressed mathematically, into a single spike. This is similar to a player piano roll that can reproduce any song by r...
