An international research team led by RIKEN BDR has identified a pair of genes that regulate how much REM (dream) and non-REM sleep an animal experiences.
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?
Scientists have found evidence that hippocampal memories of experience are not stored in place cells.
Scientists have discovered a gene that allows plants to cope with extreme heat by changing the composition of chloroplast membranes.
Researchers discover a dopaminergic circuit in the brain that allows fear associations to disappear when there isn’t anything to be afraid of anymore.
Blue light alters some gene expression in plants by changing the transcription start sites to downstream locations.
