Modeling the restless brain

...global climate change. Models must be used to test theories and generate new insights into how the system works as a whole. And while technologies such as functional MRI allow scientists to measure some kinds of neural connectivity, neuroinformatics approaches, which use extensive anatomical and physiolog...

Scientists find potential 'off-switch' for HIV virus

...hem to think they are on the right track. If their theories prove correct, they could form the basis for therapies that combat HIV and other viruses that possess these genetic circuits within their own DNA.

RNA enzyme structure offers a glimpse into the origins of life

... circularity of this process poses a challenge for theories about the origins of life. "Which came first, nucleic acids or proteins? This question once seemed an intractable paradox, but with the discovery of ribozymes, it is now possible to imagine a prebiotic 'RNA World' in which self-replicating ribozym...

Scientists reveal structure of gateways to gene control

"There is a certain DNA sequence that shapes the gene's architecture in the same way, producing the same structure in every gene," Pugh said. The overall sequence of DNA building blocks is differen...

What animals can tell us about hemorrhage, organ transplants and aging

...attention to long-lived animals. Some of the aging theories to be discussed during the symposium: DNA damage and repair. Short-lived animals may suffer more damage to their genes and have a more difficult time repairing the damage than long-lived animals, the theory goes. Mice, a short-lived species, hav...

Protowings may have helped bird ancestors cover rough terrain

Two theories have recently dominated the debate: one postulates that flight evolved in tree-dwelling ancestors that used their forelimbs to help them glide, while the other considers ancestral birds to be terrestrial dinosaurs that developed powered flight from t...

The researchers' theories are reinforced by akinetic mutism, a condition that occurs in patients who suffer a lesion from stroke or surgery that includes the cingulate. To varying degrees, such patients are minimally active. "If you give them a cup of coffee, they'll drink i...

Inheriting a tendency to brain infection

Robots manipulating animal behaviour

But they cannot react to the animals' response," he says. "In our project, the autonomous insbots call on specially developed algorithms to react to signals an...
