Mighty mice are less susceptible to muscular dystrophy gene's effects

...scientists hope to unravel the mechanism of muscle regeneration in mice with and without myostatin, possibly revealing even better targets for improving the process. They also plan to use special genetic manipulations to turn off the myostatin gene in adult mice, rather than at conception, to see if losing myosta...

Your brain is teaching your nose new tricks, say UC Berkeley researchers

...activity in damaged regions of the body results in regeneration in the brain. For example, in stroke patients, tying down the unaffected limbs to force patients to try use their affected arms or legs has resulted in recovery of some use of those limbs. The researchers conducted their work through a very simple m...
