Single Olfactory Gene Helps Mice Detect Predators
2013-04-30 08:47:01

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Dogs can hear sounds at higher frequencies. Bats can ℠see´ with sonar although their eyes are practically useless. And, apparently, the mouse can smell a predator´s urine from a mile away. Each of these traits has played an important role in the evolution of each animal. But what is especially amazing with regard to mice and their olfactory receptors is their ability to sense a threat may be determined by only...

University of Texas Health Science Center study suggests inflammation's role in the development of the disease Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive degenerative disease affecting a person's ability to coordinate and control their muscle movement. What starts out as a tremor in a finger will eventually lead to difficulty in writing and speaking, and ultimately the inability to walk without assistance. Since the 1950s research has shown that people with Parkinson's have decreased levels...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists at Johns Hopkins University studying rats' ability to navigate familiar territory found that remembered spatial information is used by one particular brain structure to imagine routes that the rats then follow. Understanding why damage to that structure disrupts specific types of memory and learning could have implications for people with Alzheimer's disease and age-related cognitive decline. The model developed for this...

Formation and Orientation The development of the brain is broken down into stages. The basic evolution begins in the third week of the embryonic process where the neural plate is formed. By week four, the neural plate has developed into the neural tube. The anterior part of the tube, the telencephalon, grows rapidly as it prepares to later give way to the brain. As time goes on, cells begin to classify themselves as either neurons or glial cells, thus determining their functions. Glial...
