Making the most of stem cells
...nishing touches on a new method for preserving and storing
the finicky cells. The work, presented today (Marc... drastically." The ideal system for preserving and storing

Specifying alcohol-related brain-damage among heavy social drinkers
...ract concepts of time and money, difficulties with storing
and retrieving information, and frequently needing external motivators. "Ultimately we have to reconcile these two types of findings that have been found among abstinent alcoholics and people who are drinking too much but haven't sought out treat...
Mantis shrimp may have swiftest kick in the animal kingdom
...ppendage. They showed that it acted like a spring, storing
elastic energy when the appendage is cocked, and releasing it when the shrimp strikes. "All mantis shrimp have the saddle-shaped structure, though there is a lot of variation," said Patek, who is looking for other creatures that employ hyperbolic par...
UCLA scientists decipher how the brain retrieves and stores our oldest memories
...terior cingulate as responsible for retrieving and storing
distant memories. Published in the May 7 edition of Science, the findings may suggest new ways of treating memory disorders, including Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. "Scientists have long understood that the hippocampus processes recent ...
Researchers establish first molecular link between eating and aging
... When it reduces its caloric intake, the WAT stops storing
fat and begins releasing it for metabolism. The paper's authors learned that fat is released from or metabolized by the body, rather than stored, when the Sirt1 protein senses short-term famine and turns off the receptors that normally keep fat sto...
Underground carbon dioxide storage reduces emissions
...estigate the technical and economic feasibility of storing
the gas in a partially-depleted oil reservoir in Saskatchewan. The researchers are working with Encana Corporation on their 30-year commercial carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery operation which is designed to recover an incremental 130 million barr...
Technology already exists to stabilize global warming
...bon dioxide at power plants or other locations and storing
it deep underground (carbon dioxide gas already is commonly injected into the Earth as part of some oil drilling operations). Others involve improving energy conservation faster than the modest improvements that are continually occurring. The researc...
The book opens on the first tree genome
...arch effort. "Trees have a built-in mechanism for storing
captured carbon dioxide in their leaves, branches, stems, and roots. This natural process of carbon sequestration suggests opportunities to further clean up the air by engineering trees so that they would more effectively shuttle and store more carb...
