Humans are not the only ones who babble. Researchers have for the first time found that another species – the chestnut-crowned babbler bird – can arrange sounds in a meaningful way.

The goal for many cancer patients is to reach the five-year, disease-free mark, but new research...
One vaccine used in Europe during the 2009 swine flu pandemic was linked to rare cases of a...
An ‘exhausted’ army of immune cells may not be able to fight off infection, but if its soldiers fight too hard they risk damaging the very body they are meant to be protecting, suggests new research.
New instrument is small enough to function within a smartphone, enabling portable light analysis.
Mistakes on memory and thought tests may give an indication of the future onset of Alzheimer’s, up to 18 years before diagnosis, according to a new study.
A former Iowa State University scientist who altered blood samples to make it appear he had achieved a breakthrough toward a potential vaccine against HIV was sentenced Wednesday to more than 4 1/2 years in prison for making false statements in research reports.
One reason ovarian cancer is so deadly: it turns off immune cells that try to fight it. A Weill Cornell Medical College team has found that disarming a gene called XBP1 rearms immune cells—which successfully combat ovarian cancer.
Lysosomes, the “garbage disposal” systems of cells, are found in great abundance near the amyloid plaques in the brain that are a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists have long assumed that their presence was helpful — that they were degrading the toxic proteins that trigger amyloid plaque formation.
The experimental treatment uses a genetically modified virus to deliver a missing gene into the cerebrospinal fluid of children with giant axonal neuropathy (GAN).
Scientists are one step closer to engineering a tool that could one day arm the body’s immune system to fight HIV — and win. The new technique harnesses the regenerative capacity of stem cells to generate an immune response to the virus.
Many stroke patients have a new treatment option -- if they seek help fast enough to get it. New guidelines endorse using a removable stent to open clogged arteries causing a stroke.
Deep under a mountain in Croatia, lurking in the darkest and deepest caves known to man, lurks a predator. Its powerful jaws bear poison glands, it has elongated antennae to feel out the unremitting dark and long curved claws allow it to seize and tightly hold prey.
Makaia, a baby tree kangaroo, was just over 5-weeks-old after his 3-year-old mother was killed by a falling tree branch in November at an Australian zoo. So, the zookeepers set the kangaroo up with a foster mother– a wallaby.
Scientists from the University of Houston and Boston Children’s Hospital presented a new research project they’ve been working on at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA).
The InnoScan Series of microarray scanners from from Arrayit. The 710 and 710AL are the next generation of microarray scanners and offer greater sensitivity and lower background, dynamic auto-focusing, 2-color fluorescence detection, 3 µm scan resolution, 3 minute scan times and complete software.
Scientists have developed a bionic leg that gives patients with above-knee amputations better control over movement than current prosthetics.
New animal research reveals fundamental sex differences in how pain is processed.
A team of researchers has found a way to expand the use and precision of powerful gene-editing tools called CRISPR-Cas9 RNA-guided nucleases.
A new investigation being conducted by Frontline is focusing on the accuracy of DNA samples used in criminal cases.
Researchers have developed a new informatics technology that analyzes existing data repositories of protein modifications and 3D protein structures to help scientists identify and target research on "hotspots" most likely to be important for biological function.
A new study identifies new immune molecules that protect against deadly Marburg virus, a relative of Ebola virus.
A new study suggests that errors on memory and thinking tests may signal Alzheimer’s up to 18 years before the disease can be diagnosed.
High levels of DNA damage in nerve cells can lead to dementia, researchers have found.
An implantable, microchip-based device may soon replace the injections and pills now needed to treat chronic diseases.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer's disease are women, and now some scientists are questioning the long-held assumption that it's just because they tend to live longer than men.
The company unveiled the gel at a launch event on Friday.
