Decision-making -- Demonstration of a link between cognition and execution

...ia, may intervene in decision-making processes; as soon as a choice is offered to an individual, it evaluates the degree of incentive provided by each of the options possible. This phenomenon is probably controlled by dopamine , one of the neuromodulators present in large quantities in the basal ganglia....

Nanotechnology meets biology and DNA finds its groove

...ntire genomes - for species or individuals - could soon become more accessible to science. Scientists, Schwartz explains, already know how to take DNA and stiffen it by removing salts from its chemical makeup. But confining the molecule and presenting it for analysis is laborious, engaging armies of lab...

Major society publisher announces support for public access to scientific literature

At the same time, it is important that nonprofit societies and other publishers generate sufficient revenues to sustain the costs of reviewing and publishing ...

Sea creature's toxin could lead to promising cancer treatment

...ttle of its natural form was available that a race soon began to synthesize it in the laboratory. A chemical structure for diazonamide A was published in 1991, but in 2001, Dr. Harran's group showed that initial report to be incorrect, and uncovered the correct structure. In the first of the two new stu...

Risk of preterm birth appears to vary by season

...nderstood. More than 500,000 babies are born too soon each year nationwide, and the preterm birth rate has increased more than 30 percent since 1981. Babies who do survive face the risk of cerebral palsy, mental retardation, chronic lung disease, and vision and hearing loss, as well as other development...

Climate change only one symptom of a stressed planet Earth

...that we need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible. Only with an approach that looks to our planet in an integrated way can we address this critical task. The environmental stress in all pieces of our planet will be big, and Earth Science will have to work together with policy makers to m...

Weight-loss supplement shows good and bad traits

...e an anti-diabetic drug," she continued. "It's too soon to tell if that would be the case in humans." In the rat study, Belury and her colleagues studied a special kind of rat model bred to gain weight quickly. These rats were also less susceptible to CLA-induced weight loss. All rats ate a high-fat die...

Disabling key protein may give physicians time to treat pneumonic plague

...bitors, so hopefully someone will start the search soon for an inhibitor of PLA that is specific and non-toxic enough to be used as an adjunct treatment," Goldman says. "That might give us enough time to use antibiotics to save patients afflicted with pneumonic plague."Goldman hopes to conduct follow-up s...

West Australian women: Drinking before, and during, pregnancy

Though the brain has its own means of recycling glutamate, injury causes the system to malfunction, leading to glutamate build up. Prof. Teichberg reasoned that this problem cou...

Small molecule offers big hope against cancer

...rchers at the University of Alberta believe it may soon be used as an effective treatment for many forms of cancer. Dr. Evangelos Michelakis, a professor at the U of A Department of Medicine, has shown that dichloroacetate (DCA) causes regression in several cancers, including lung, breast, and brain tumo...

Scientists find new genetic clue to cause of Alzheimer's disease
