Scientists have long understood that mother's milk provides immune protection against some infectious agents through the transfer of antibodies, a process referred to as "passive immunity." A research team now shows that mother's milk also contributes to the development of the baby's own immune…

New research has demonstrated that a nanoscale device, called a memristor, could be used to power artificial systems that can mimic the human brain. Artificial neural networks (ANNs) exhibit learning abilities and can perform tasks which are difficult for conventional computing systems, such as…

Cells never forget to take out the trash. It has long been known that cells tag proteins for degradation by labeling them with ubiquitin, a signal described as "the molecular kiss of death". Now a research group has identified an analogous system in gram-positive bacteria, where the role of a…

Despite their different triggers, the same molecular chain of events appears to be responsible for brain cell death from strokes, injuries and even such neurodegenerative diseases as Alzheimer's. Now, researchers say they have pinpointed the protein at the end of that chain of events, one that…

Mice have brain cells that are dedicated to storing memories of other mice, according to a new study. These cells, found in a region of the hippocampus known as the ventral CA1, store "social memories" that help shape the mice's behavior toward each other. The researchers also showed that they can…

Many have wondered about exact nature of Donald Trump's hair. Is it the world's worst toupee? A poorly-executed elaborate comb-over? A weird, incredibly expensive weave? The world may never know. But I prefer to think it's inspired by nature—not another human's lovely locks, of course, but those of…
