Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Sounding like a set-up for the Weekend Update segment of Saturday Night Live, 'REALLY?!? With Seth and Amy,' a story came out of Germany this week of a colossal mix up made 158 years ago. Of course, the SNL segment typically satirizes complete cock-ups, whereas the mistake made by those intended to categorize the brains of two prominent geniuses of the day was more what some might consider tragic. And the mishandling of the brains...

Max Planck scientists decipher the structure of bacterial injection needles at atomic resolution The plague, bacterial dysentery, and cholera have one thing in common: These dangerous diseases are caused by bacteria which infect their host using a sophisticated injection apparatus. Through needle-like structures, they release molecular agents into their host cell, thereby evading the immune response. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in...

Max Planck scientists in Göttingen have for the first time made finest details of nerve cells in the brain of a living mouse visible. To explore the most intricate structures of the brain in order to decipher how it functions — Stefan Hell´s team of researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen has made a significant step closer to this goal. Using the STED microscopy developed by Hell, the scientists have, for the first...

Max Planck scientists succeed in filming organs and joints in real time using magnetic resonance imaging "Please hold absolutely still": This instruction is crucial for patients being examined by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is the only way to obtain clear images for diagnosis. Up to now, it was therefore almost impossible to image moving organs using MRI. Max Planck researchers from Göttingen have now succeeded in significantly reducing the time required for recording images -...

Journeys across several time zones make our internal body clocks go haywire. We feel exhausted and tense, and our sleep pattern is out of synch. As scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry have now succeeded in demonstrating for mice, the clocks associated with individual organs in the body adapt to the new time at different speeds. As a result, the body's physiological processes are no longer coordinated. The adrenal gland plays a key role in this process. When the...
