Neuronal excitability may hold key to age-related decline in learning and memory
...of synaptic plasticity in other words, these mice appear
to change some kinds of inter-neuronal connections more readily than do normal mice of the same age. Furthermore, the aged mutant mice out-performed their age-matched wild-type littermates in the spatial version of the Morris water maze, a laboratory...
Head movements by warblers could reveal basis for birds' geomagnetic sense
...addition, birds experiencing a zero magnetic field appear
to more diligently search for the non-existing reference direction by tripling their head-scanning. The findings of Mouritsen et al. confirm that the magnetic sensory organ must be located in the birds' head, and the fact that head-scanning f...
