Researchers discover way to make cells in the eye sensitive to light

...hecharacteristics of this interesting protein. The textbook view of theeye is that it contains only two light sensing systems, the rods andcones. However, over the last few years it has become increasinglyaccepted that we have a third system, which uses melanopsin, that haslain undetected during decades of vi...

Researchers make surprise discovery that some neurons can transmit three signals at once

...ngly at odds with each other. One, glutamate, is a textbook excitatory neurotransmitter; while the other two, GABA and glycine, are quintessential inhibitory neurotransmitters. Information is transmitted between neurons when one cell releases a neurotransmitter at a synapse, the point of contact between cell...

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

...e exceptional "super-mom" birds that don't fit the textbook norm has opened new doors in the research program. "If the offspring of these special hens are also more efficient, the broiler industry could move forward in leaps and bounds. As a result of their findings, Robinson, Renema and Zuidhof have broaden...
