How roots control plant shoots

... Sieburth says. Seeking the Chemical Signal To indicate what kind of hormone turned off leaf growth, Van Norman and Sieburth treated thale cress plants with tiny amounts of a herbicide named fluridone, which inhibits production of carotenoids. When they used it on mutant plants which otherwise would have...

...on. A large population of birds in a region could indicate a suitable habitat, or it could, in fact, could be the only place the animals could find, wrong for feeding, mating, and rearing young, in other words, an "ecological trap." "Ornithologists and ecologists in Europe and North America have good re...

Drought in the West linked to warmer temperatures

... a time in which a variety of paleoclimate records indicate unusual warmth over much of the Northern Hemisphere. The authors of the new study argue that there are climate mechanisms involved that make warming climate conditions likely to lead to increased prevalence of drought in the western, interior region ...

Study using robotic microscope shows how mutant Huntington's protein affects neurons

...critical part of the disease process, while others indicate that they may help protect the cells from toxic proteins or that they are merely bystanders in the disease process. One problem in identifying how inclusion bodies influence disease is that researchers have been unable to track changes in indivi...

...of neurons in the lateral intraparietal region did indicate that it was involved in making those decisions. Analysis of the experiments also indicated that the neurons were encoding the relative subjective desirability of a choice, rather than absolute subjective desirability. "While we cannot ask nonhuman pr...

Perceptual decision-making hub pinpointed in human brain

...(fMRI), twelve healthy subjects pressed buttons to indicate whether they saw a face or a house, as images flashed on a computer monitor. Some of the images were so noisy that they were barely discernable, reducing accuracy from 95 percent to 82 percent. The researchers looked for a site in the brain's fro...

But while most mass spectrometers are unwieldy, cabinet-sized machines that require samples to undergo hours of intensive preparation before testing, Cooks' team has found a way to test untreated s...

At present, nothing exists for measuring whether a candidate drug is truly effective during development. Bio-markers can bridge this gap and thus substantially lowe...

Manipulation of epigenome turns off as many genes as it turns on

For example, to accurately decode speech, we need to be able to tell the difference between sounds such as the 'b' in beach and the 'p' in peach. We do this without conscious...

"Overall, these findings indicate that in the MPTP mouse model, the protein COX-2 may play a role in the process that leads to the death of the cells implicated in the control of movement by interfering with the programmed cell death process." Przedborski intends to confirm this rol...
