A new microscope, using a new form of the much-hailed light sheet-based fluorescence microscopy (LSFM), makes visible— via stunning movies— countless biological processes once deemed utterly invisible: sub-cellular activity.
On Nov. 9, Hollywood’s A-list and Silicon Valley luminaries will gather for the Second Annual Breakthrough Prize ceremony. Prizes are given to notable laureates in three different fields: Fundamental Physics, Life Sciences and Mathematics.
Nobel season is upon us. On Monday, the Nobel Prize judges began a series of daily announcements revealing this year's winners. To help avoid any embarrassing water-cooler faux pas, here's a true-or-false guide to the prizes.
The National Institutes of Health announced today its first wave of investments totaling $46 million in fiscal year 14 funds to support the goals of the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative.
The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute and PersonalGenomes.org announced a partnership to identify genetic and environmental contributions to trait and disease development.
Carl Zeiss Microscopy LLC, announces that it donated high-end research microscope instruments as part of an innovative training program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The program brings minority Los Angeles area high school students into working laboratories, and entices them with the excitement of scientific discovery.
Editors of PubPeer were used to getting only about 400 unique visits a day to their post-publication peer-review website.“Now we are getting that kind of traffic every 15 minutes,” says a PubPeer editor. This astronomical leap began on May 22, when scientists posting anonymously on the site tweeted the news they had found errors—figure replications—in a recent globally hailed Cell.
It’s that time of year again. It’s time for all of you to start thinking about your 2010 Bioscience Technology Researcher of the Year entries.
Action selection is modulated by external stimuli either directly or via memory retrieval. In a constantly changing environment, animals have evolved attention-like processes to effectively filter the incoming sensory stream. These attention-like processes, in turn, are modulated by memory. The neurobiological nature of how attention, action selection and memory are inter-connected is unknown. We describe here new phenotypes of the memory mutant radish in the fruit fly Drosophila.
