According to one common proposal, this covariation reflects simplification of task performance by the nervous system so that muscles with similar contributions to task variables are controlled together. Alternatively, this covariation might reflect…

Research breakthrough: Humans are not the first to repurpose CRISPR https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/03/200324131820.htm We humans are far from the first to exploit the benefits of CRISPR. Groundbreaking research has helped to redefine what CRISPR is. Researchers have discovered that primitive bacterial parasites weaponize CRISPR to engage in battle against one another. This discovery opens up the possibility to reprogram CRISPR to combat multi-drug resistant bacteria.

Abstinence-dependent dissociable central amygdala microcircuits control drug craving [Neuroscience] https://www.pnas.org/content/early/2020/03/20/2001615117 We recently reported that social choice-induced voluntary abstinence prevents incubation of methamphetamine craving in rats. This inhibitory effect was associated with activation of protein kinase-Cδ (PKCδ)-expressing neurons in central amygdala lateral division (CeL). In contrast, incubation of craving after forced abstinence was associated with activation of CeL-expressing somatostatin (SOM) neu

Is nonlocality inherent in all identical particles in the universe? https://phys.org/news/2020-03-nonlocality-inherent-identical-particles-universe.html What is interaction, and when does it occur? Intuition suggests that the necessary condition for the interaction of independently created particles is their direct touch or contact through physical force carriers. In quantum mechanics, the result of the interaction is entanglement—the appearance of non-classical correlations in the system. It seems that quantum theory allows entanglement of indepe

QnAs with Jens Nielsen [QnAs] https://www.pnas.org/content/early/2020/03/17/2003876117 When a cell replicates, genetic material must be duplicated, new proteins synthesized, and replication machinery built, all of which are critical processes that require delivery of sufficient building blocks and energy. In his Inaugural Article (1), Jens Nielsen, elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 2019, uses a quantitative…

The growth of an organism rides on a pattern of waves https://bigthink.com/surprising-science/organism-growth-wave-pattern When an egg cell of almost any sexually reproducing species is fertilized, it sets off a series of waves that ripple across the egg's surface. These waves are produced by billions of activated proteins that surge through the egg's membrane like streams of tiny burrowing sentinels, signaling the egg to start dividing, folding, and dividing again, to form the first cellular seeds of an organism.

Pharma's potential impact on water quality https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2020-03/acs-ppi032020.php When people take medications, these drugs and their metabolites can be excreted and make their way to wastewater treatment plants. From there, the compounds can end up in waterways. Wastewater from pharmaceutical companies could start off with even larger amounts of these substances. In ACS' Environmental Science & Technology, researchers report that a single pharmaceutical manufacturing facility

That also applies to funding research, according to a new article affirming that peer review is the most effective method of helping government agencies predict what ideas can best further scientific advancement.

PODD: De hjälper ofrivilligt barnlösa https://www.vetenskaphalsa.se/podd-de-hjalper-ofrivilligt-barnlosa/ Är det lika vanligt med fertilitetsproblem hos kvinnor som hos män? Kan även män vänta för länge? Hur kommer framtidens fertilitetsbehandlingar att se ut och vad är "fertility awareness"? I den här podden fokuserar vi på den ofrivilliga barnlösheten, vad man vet om orsakerna, vilken hjälp som finns att få och vilka frågor som forskningen söker svar på.

BioNyt Videnskabens Verden (www.bionyt.dk) er Danmarks ældste populærvidenskabelige tidsskrift for naturvidenskab. Det er det eneste blad af sin art i Danmark, som er helliget international forskning inden for livsvidenskaberne.

Bladet bringer aktuelle, spændende forskningsnyheder inden for biologi, medicin og andre naturvidenskabelige områder som f.eks. klimaændringer, nanoteknologi, partikelfysik, astronomi, seksualitet, biologiske våben, ecstasy, evolutionsbiologi, kloning, fedme, søvnforskning, muligheden for liv på mars, influenzaepidemier, livets opståen osv.

Artiklerne roses for at gøre vanskeligt stof forståeligt, uden at den videnskabelige holdbarhed tabes.
