Whether it’s bird anatomy or science cartoons, Masaki Ouchida can do it all. She spoke with us about her career in science illustration, from the US to Japan.
Scientists have created extra large zooplankton to help feed the fish in aquafarms. The new plankton were created using an ion beam to generate mutations.

None of us would get on a plane that had its parts changed in mid-air, says Eve Marder, who has spent her career probing a very specific cluster of crustacean nerve cells. Yet we are all walking around undergoing a constant turnover of cellular parts, and so are the lobsters and crabs Marder studies.
Treatment with adrenergic receptor antagonists (AdR blockers) was able to reduce stroke-related brain damage in mice and improve motor recovery.
A mouse model shows that absence seizures are triggered by faulty connections between the cortex and fast-spiking neurons in the striatum.
A new imaging technique called opto-OISI allows scientists to non-invasively visualize where specific neurons project in the living brain.
The newly named gore-tex gene is responsible for the development of nanopores that allow chemicals in the air to be detected (in flies).
When a normal cellular cleanup process is disrupted, social behavior in mice is disrupted and they start behaving in ways that resemble human symptoms of autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia.
Scientists have developed a new automated computational mass spectrometry system that can search an organism’s entire metabolome for as-yet-unknown metabolites (potential drugs).
Pulses of light could be used to turn materials into superconductors through an unconventional type of superconductivity.
This newly created ethylene-based material has shape memory that allows self-healing!
A new brain imaging study shows that autistic severity is linked to how long certain regions of the brain store information.
Sphingolipid S1P is reduced in brain white matter of people with schizophrenia, making S1P receptors a good target for new treatments. Continue!
Scientists have developed a staining procedure that makes see-through tissue, organs, and bodies useful. Continue!
Mice who experienced artificial gravity on the ISS suffered less damage to their immune system (thymus) than weightless mice did. Continue!
Time measured at the top and bottom of the Tokyo Skytree with ultraprecise clocks has verified the time dilation effect predicted by Einstein. Continue!
Low-protein diets in male mice alter sperm and result in offspring that have metabolic problems like diabetes in adulthood. Continue!
Genetics and mechanical origami in the fly embryo helps proper body development by fighting off “noisy” fluctuations is the environment. Continue!
