Flies use fecal deposits as pheromones


Bioluminescence imaging of fly brains reveals neurons sensitive to fly poo laced with pheromones (you can see the fecal “landmark” in the dotted circle). Need we say more?

Hippocampal memory isn’t all about place cells


Scientists have found evidence that hippocampal memories of experience are not stored in place cells.

Summer fun: how plants beat the heat


Scientists have discovered a gene that allows plants to cope with extreme heat by changing the composition of chloroplast membranes.

In living color: imaging the brain with synthetic bioluminescence


A new way to image the brain from outside the head using bioluminescence.

Clean and green: a moss that removes lead (Pb) from water


Scientists show that the moss Funaria hygrometrica can remove harmful lead from water when in the protonema stage of development.

Leaky plants bad for drought resistance


The KAI2 receptor for compounds found in smoke helps plants retain water and survive during drought.

Quantum dots light up cancer with a little help


Researchers have found a small connecting protein that can help make quantum dot-based probes for biomedical imaging.
