Wrapping a memory with an experience, capacity for recollection detected in non-human species

...mance. The researchers divided the rats into two comparable groups: a group in which the hippocampus was removed and a control group. When the rats were again tested, the results were compelling -- recollection was lost in rats without a hippocampus but familiarity remained intact. A further test of the con...

Study of flu patients reveals virus outsmarting key drug

...ct, our population of patients might be considered comparable to one experiencing pandemic influenza in the absence of pre-existing immunity." The study of 50 Japanese children with influenza, says Kawaoka, suggests that oseltamivir-resistant viruses arise frequently in children treated with the drug. "We don'...

Environmental costs of home construction lower with wise choice, reuse of building materials

...concrete-frame home was 31 percent higher than the comparable wood-frame. The use of wood products instead of steel or concrete can farther reduce the greenhouse emissions from fossil fuels wherever lumber mills generate power and heat using bark, sawdust and other byproducts of milling. More than half the ene...

Gold quantum dots have applications in biological labeling, nanoscale optics

Growing pains: T. Rex was teenage giant

...journal Nature. T. rex's growth rate is comparable to that of the modern day elephant. But while elephants have a lifespan of more than 70 years, T. rex lived no more than 30 years. "We now know that T. rex lived fast and died young," said Erickson. Erickson and Peter Makovicky, dinosa...

Small animal imaging gives cancer clues
