Things are not always as they appear. New visual perception research explains the natural limits of what humans can see and how to find what nature hides.
Shining light on brain cells that coordinate movement
A technique for inserting a gene into specific cell types in the adult brain can be used to alter the function of brain circuits and change behaviors in an animal model. The method will allow scientists to better understand what roles certain cell types play in the brain's complex circuitry. Researchers hope the approach might someday lead to developing treatments for conditions like epilepsy that might be curable by activating a small group of cells.
Animals, not drought, shaped our ancestors' environment
The expansion of grasslands isn't solely due to drought, but more complex climate factors are at work, both for modern Africans now and ancient Africans in the Pleistocene, suggests new research.
