UAF scientists discover new marine habitat in Alaska

...ing rhodoliths around the world, debate centers on where P. calcareum originated. Riosmena-Rodriguez says the species may have actually originated in Alaska waters. More research on the species' evolutionary history is needed to be sure. The other rhodolith specimen collected by Konar and Iken is p...

Binocular rivalry: Fulfilling visual expectations

...mitted to the earliest level of the visual cortex, where signals from the two eyes first interact. Even if our expectations can affect what we see, vision is still our most valuable asset for sensing the world around us.

Study reveals why eyes in some paintings seem to follow viewers

...ayed seem to follow you around the room, no matter where you go. People have described the effect as creepy or eerie, and some have thought it supernatural. But now researchers have demonstrated the very natural cause for this visual effect. All it takes for the effect to work is to have the person in the ...

'Fossil genes' reveal how life sheds form and function

...enes, according to Hittinger, are "full of holes," where numerous DNA bases - the building blocks of all genes - have been edited out through mutation to terminate the physiological message they were responsible for transmitting along the pathway. "Genes become fossilized if there is no use for them," says...

Instead, the age of men's common ancestor differs between the southern African, Mongolian and Papua New Guinean populations studied. The finding tends to rule out some global beneficial mutation as the reason Y-chromosome D...

Researchers develop fast track way to discover how cells are regulated
