Newborns have ear preferences, too

...t excels at hearing pitch, or sound frequency, and interpreting music. There's an elegant, crossed-pathway of auditory neurons, or nerve cells, that link ears and sound-processing centers in the brain. The right ear auditory nerve pathway leads to the left hemisphere's auditory cortex. Therefore, the right ear r...

The study was carried out in mice, which were born without RIP140, and it will be important to determine the consequences of blocking RIP140 action in adult animals." This work was supported by the Wellcome Trust and the Biot...

...eather reports. "We're all pretty comfortable with interpreting weather reports, in which information is conveyed to the public as a probability for example, there's a 30 percent chance of rain today," Grant said. "Of course, a lot of science goes into the generation of weather forecasts, and water quality forec...

JGI launches community sequencing program

...1997, JGI was initially tasked with unraveling and interpreting a large complement of the human genome chromosomes 5, 16 and 19 comprising nearly 11 percent of the 3-billion-letter human genetic code. Now in its seventh year, the JGI has assembled considerable expertise and instrumentation at its Production Geno...

Rodents bred for alcohol preference live longer than rats bred for alcohol avoidance

...r health. Or both." Sinclair cautioned against interpreting these findings as proof that alcohol consumption is harm-free. "As difficult as human studies in the area are, they still give strong evidence that chronic intake of large amounts of alcohol is detrimental," he said. Hyyti concurred. "When we c...

Abandoned penguin colonies may help refine Antarctic climate studies

.... But it also helps illuminate the difficulties in interpreting the climate record. Iceberg B-15A, an enormous piece of ice that broke away from the Ross Ice Shelf in March of 2000, has caused much more ice than usual to accumulate for a number of years in eastern McMurdo Sound, essentially cutting off large Adel...

Study offers new insight into Rett Syndrome

... Health, funded this study, is cautious about over interpreting the results. "It might well be that BDNF is a crucial gene that explains some of the symptoms of Rett patients. But we can't be really sure yet." One theory this study suggests is that in Rett patients, mutations in MeCP2 impair its ability to regula...
