Crop-rotation Resistant Rootworms Have A Lot Going on in Their Guts

June 10, 2015 10:35 am | by University of Illinois | News | Comments

After decades of effort, scientists are finally figuring out how insects develop resistance to environmentally friendly farming practices – such as crop rotation – that are designed to kill them. The researchers say their insights will help develop more sustainable agricultural practices.


Scientists Gain First Glimpse of New Concepts Developing in the Brain

June 10, 2015 9:57 am | by Carnegie Mellon University | News | Comments

Scientists have — for the first time — documented the formation of a newly learned concept inside the brain, which shows that it occurs in the same brain areas for everyone.


5 Things About Trans Fats and the FDA's Proposed Phase Out

June 10, 2015 9:45 am | by Mary Clare Jalonick, Associated Press | News | Comments

There are a lot fewer trans fats in the nation's food than there were a decade ago, but the Obama administration is moving toward getting rid of them almost entirely.

June 9, 2015 12:30 pm | Product Releases | Comments

LaVison BioTec has upgraded its UltraMicroscope and TriM Scope II intra-vital two-photon microscopes with multiple new developments. One is a beam multiplexer for two-photon laser scanning microscopes to generate a four foci line pattern in the specimen.

Scientists Isolate Smallest Unit of Sleep to Date

June 9, 2015 12:13 pm | by Washington State University | News | Comments

Scientists have grown a tiny group of brain cells that can be induced to fall asleep, wake up and even show rebound sleep after "staying up late."The study - the first to document that sleep originates in small neural networks - opens the door to deeper understanding of the genetic, molecular and electrical aspects underlying sleep disorders.


Injectable Device Delivers Nano-view of the Brain

June 9, 2015 11:36 am | by Harvard University | News | Comments

An international team of researchers has developed a method of fabricating nanoscale electronic scaffolds that can be injected via syringe. The scaffolds can then be connected to devices and used to monitor neural activity, stimulate tissues, or even promote regeneration of neurons.


Researchers Discover Molecular Rules that Govern Autoimmune Disorders

June 9, 2015 11:31 am | by UCLA | News | Comments

An international team has identified an unexpectedly general set of rules that determine which molecules can cause the immune system to become vulnerable to the autoimmune disorders lupus and psoriasis. The discovery could lead to new ways of treating the disorders.


Data Scientists Find Connections Between Birth Month and Health

June 9, 2015 11:08 am | by Columbia University | News | Comments

Scientists have developed a computational method to investigate the relationship between birth month and disease risk. The researchers used this algorithm to examine New York City medical databases and found 55 diseases that correlated with the season of birth.


Laboratory Fluidics Instruments: The Importance of Innovation

June 9, 2015 10:51 am | by Jeffrey A. Duchemin | Articles | Comments

Instruments for laboratory fluidics include syringe, peristaltic and continuous flow pumps for a wide variety of applications, from mass spectrometry calibration to drug and nutritional studies. In the 21st century, advances in the sciences that involve fluidics are driving the need for more precise observations by laboratory researchers. It is vital that these researchers have access to the best and most advanced instrumentation.


Staph Germ, Found in Noses, Can Be Pushed Out by Good Bacteria

June 9, 2015 10:49 am | by Seth Augenstein, Digital Reporter | News | Comments

Staphylococcus aureus, also known as the dreaded Staph bacteria that can cause lethal infections, is commonly found in the human nose. The germ is also estimated to cause infections killing 18,000 people every year in the U.S. But the potentially deadly unwelcome guests are a product of environment, not genes – and can be pushed out by benign bacteria, according to an international study of twins.


Researchers Discover Missing Link Between Brain and Immune System

June 9, 2015 10:40 am | by Joe Shust, Editor, Continuity Insights | News | Comments

Scientists have discovered a previously unknown connection between the brain and immune system that could result in drastic breakthroughs in treating diseases, including Alzheimer’s.
