Evolution likes to borrow. It can take an already-successful biological structure and alter it until it serves a new function. Two independent groups studying the proteins that organize gut microvilli now suspect that this may have been the case in the development of inner ear hair cell…

Helmet-wearing could increase risk-taking, a new study suggests. The latest findings call into question the effectiveness of certain safety advice, notably in relation to helmets for various leisure activities, including for cycling. But, the researchers suggest, the conclusions have wider-reaching…

Sugar's sweetness and calorie content combine to give it lethal power to destroy diets, many scientists have assumed. However, a new study suggests that the brain responds to taste and calorie counts in fundamentally different ways. And only one of these responses explains why most New Years'…

Neurons communicate with one another by synaptic connections, where information is exchanged from one neuron to its neighbor. These connections are not static, but are continuously modulated in response to the ongoing activity (or experience) of the neuron. This process, known as synaptic…

The role of 'professional love' in early years settings is being studied by researchers. An anonymous survey explored how early years workers felt about 'loving' the children in their care. While the majority of practitioners believe showing affection to the children in their care is important,…

Teens without homes, many of whom have suffered at the hands of those entrusted with providing them care and kindness, often refuse to seek warmth and nourishment at shelters. But there's new evidence that drop-in centers -- safe havens with fewer rules and no older adults -- could open doors to…

A team of researchers has for the first time published a detailed description of a protein linked to many types of cancer. The lab-based study provides a new opportunity for scientists to develop drugs to target this protein.

The onset of cardiac failure after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a serious problem throughout the world. Researchers have now clarified that the cell adhesion inhibition of periostin1 damages myocardinal cells, inducing compromised cardiac myocyte contractile force and myocytes death,…

In what is believed to be the biggest study of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) -- also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) -- in children to date, researchers have found that almost 2 per cent of 16-year-olds participating in children of the 90s have CFS lasting more than six months and nearly 3…

A well-known songbird, the great tit, has revealed its genetic code, offering researchers new insight into how species adapt to a changing planet. Their initial findings suggest that epigenetics -- what's on rather than what's in the gene -- may play a key role in the evolution of memory and…
