Scientists discover first super salty subglacial lakes in Canadian Arctic

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 02:41 PM PDT

An analysis of radar data led scientists to an unexpected discovery of two lakes located beneath 550 to 750 meters of ice underneath the Devon Ice Cap, one of the largest ice caps in the Canadian Arctic. They are thought to be the first isolated hypersaline subglacial lakes in the world.

Babies make the link between emotions expressed vocally and facially

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 11:51 AM PDT

The ability of babies to differentiate emotional expressions appears to develop during their first six months. But do they really recognize emotion or do they only distinguish the physical characteristics of faces and voices? Researchers have just provided an initial answer to this question, measuring the ability of six-month-old babies to make a connection between a voice expressing happiness or anger and the emotional expression on a face.

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 11:50 AM PDT

Life sciences professors have found that giving students access to their personal biological data has a profound impact on their learning experience. In a summary of their experiment, the researchers report students with access to data about their own microbiome -- the trillions of tiny microorganisms that live in a person's gut, mouth and skin -- are significantly more engaged and more interested in course material.

Brain combats dementia by shifting resources

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 10:17 AM PDT

The brain continues to put up a fight even as neurodegenerative diseases like dementia damage certain areas and functions. In fact, recent findings in a Baycrest-University of Arizona study suggest that one method the brain uses to counter these diseases is the reassigning of tasks to different regions.

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 10:16 AM PDT

Researchers have determined how satellite DNA, considered to be 'junk DNA,' plays a crucial role in holding the genome together.

An immunological memory in the brain

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 10:16 AM PDT

Inflammatory reactions can change the brain's immune cells in the long term -- meaning that these cells have an 'immunological memory.' This memory may influence the progression of neurological disorders that occur later in life, and is therefore a previously unknown factor that could influence the severity of these diseases.

Mutant ferrets offer clues to human brain size

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 10:16 AM PDT

Scientists have engineered ferrets genetically to study abnormally small brain size in humans -- and, in the process, discovered hints as to how our brains evolved.

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 10:16 AM PDT

By analyzing thousands of fossilized ancient crustaceans, a team of scientists found that devoting a lot of energy to the competition for mates may compromise species' resilience to change and increase their risk of extinction.

Atlantic Ocean circulation at weakest point in more than 1,500 years

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 10:16 AM PDT

New research provides evidence that a key cog in the global ocean circulation system hasn't been running at peak strength since the mid-1800s and is currently at its weakest point in the past 1,600 years. If the system continues to weaken, it could disrupt weather patterns from the United States and Europe to the African Sahel, and cause more rapid increase in sea level on the US East Coast.

Specific bacteria in the small intestine are crucial for fat absorption

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 10:16 AM PDT

A new study -- one of a few to concentrate on microbes in the upper gastrointestinal tract -- shows how the typical calorie-dense western diet can induce expansion of microbes that promote the digestion and absorption of high-fat foods. Over time, the steady presence of these microbes can lead to over-nutrition and obesity.

The neural circuitry of parental behavior

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 10:16 AM PDT

Scientists have deconstructed the brain circuits that control parenting behavior in mice, and identified discrete sets of cells that control actions, motivations, and hormonal changes involved in nurturing young animals.

New quantum method generates really random numbers

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 10:16 AM PDT

Researchers have developed a method for generating numbers guaranteed to be random, through the use of quantum mechanics. The experimental technique surpasses all previous methods for ensuring the unpredictability of its random numbers and may enhance security and trust in cryptographic systems.

Formation of supercontinents and strength of ocean tides

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 10:16 AM PDT

The cyclic strengthening and weakening of ocean tides over tens of millions of years is likely linked to another, longer cycle: the formation of Earth's supercontinents every 400 to 600 million years, according a new study.

Genetic screening tool identifies how the flu infiltrates cells

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 08:11 AM PDT

Researchers have developed a genetic screening tool that identified two key factors that allow the influenza virus to infect human lung cells. The technique uses new gene editing tools to create a library of modified cells, each missing a different gene, allowing scientists to see which changes impact their response to flu. This in turn could identify potential targets for antiviral drugs.

Even short international travel can spread colistin-resistant bacteria

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 08:11 AM PDT

The use of the antibiotic colistin, a last-resort treatment option in the infection by multidrug-resistant bacteria, is increasingly impeded by colistin-resistant bacteria. Researchers used biochemical and genetic assays to track resistant strains of bacteria in Japanese travelers returning from Vietnam. The researchers found short trips to a developing country can lead to the appearance of the colistin-resistance gene mcr-1. The study highlights that even brief international trips can contribute to the spread of colistin resistance.

Genetic variant might be a better marker for heart disease

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 08:11 AM PDT

Researchers have found that a newly identified subset of a known genetic variant found primarily in individuals of South Asian descent may be a better marker for carriers of heart dysfunction in this population and that individuals with this genetic variant are more likely to develop early signs of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Fascinating zoo of discs discovered around young stars

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 08:11 AM PDT

New images from the SPHERE instrument on ESO's Very Large Telescope are revealing the dusty discs surrounding nearby young stars in greater detail than previously achieved. They show a bizarre variety of shapes, sizes and structures, including the likely effects of planets still in the process of forming.

Nasal mist vaccine suppresses peanut allergy in mice

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 08:11 AM PDT

A new research study reports that a vaccine delivered as an ultrafine nasal spray was found to limit or prevent peanut allergy symptoms in mice. This study is the first step in potentially developing a vaccine to treat food allergies in humans.

Having one eye better than the other may explain ants' left bias

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 06:04 AM PDT

Unlike Derek Zoolander, ants don't have any difficulty turning left. New research has now found rock ants often have one eye slightly better than the other, which could help explain why most of them prefer to turn left, given the choice.

The emotions we feel may shape what we see

Posted: 11 Apr 2018 06:04 AM PDT

Our emotional state in a given moment may influence what we see, according to new findings. In two experiments, researchers found that participants saw a neutral face as smiling more when it was paired with an unseen positive image.

Posted: 10 Apr 2018 10:28 AM PDT

People who are married and earning less than $60,000 per year in total household income have fewer symptoms of depression than comparable earning unmarried people, but for couples earning more, marriage doesn't show the same mental health benefits.
