Discovery puts scientists closer to human application Hibernation is an essential survival strategy for some animals and scientists have long thought it could also hold promise for human survival. But how hibernation works is largely unknown. Scientists at the University of Alaska Fairbanks have successfully induced hibernation at will, showing how the process is initiated. Their research is published in the July 26 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience. A hibernating animal has a reduced...

A team of Spanish scientists followed the brown bear population through the mountains of the Cantabrian Cordillera between 1998 and 2007 in order to find out about their hibernation habits, which had been questioned in historical documents. The results confirm that female bears with babies and independent young bears under the age of two do not usually hibernate, while the other bears follow normal hibernation patterns. Brown bears (Ursus arctos) all over the world hibernate, but according to...

A nutrient that's common to all living things can make hibernating marmots hungry - a breakthrough that could help scientists understand human obesity and eating disorders, according to a new study by a Colorado State University biologist. The study appears in the current issue of the Journal of Experimental Biology. Professor Greg Florant discovered he could slowly release a molecule called AICAR into yellow-bellied marmots that activates a neurological pathway driving food intake and...

SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. -- Some southern Arizona black bears may not sleep through the hibernation season because they may not have gotten enough to eat beforehand, a wildlife official says. It's possible some bears around the Huachuca Mountains might be in a circumstance where they either would stay in the den and starve, or go back out and forage for food. Because of that, residents living near wilderness areas must stay aware and be careful with things that might attract bears. "When you're...

The discovery of a possible hibernation hormone in the brain may unlock the mystery behind the dormant state, researchers reported in the April 7, 2006 issue of Cell. Hibernation allows animals from bears to rodents to survive unscathed -- in a state of suspended animation -- under the harshest of winter conditions. If the findings in chipmunks are confirmed, the hormone would represent the first essential brain signal governing the seasonal adaptation, according to the researchers. As...
