Existing screening tools for mild cognitive impairment (MCI) result in a false-negative error rate of more than 7 percent, new research indicates. These persons are misclassified as not having MCI based on standard screening instruments but actually do have MCI when more extensive testing is…

Primates and bats may interact directly, but their behavioral and predator-prey interactions are poorly documented, and detailed reports of their interactions have been rare, until now. The first study to document monkeys consuming bats with photos and video suggests an alternative pathway for…
