Last March, famed basketball player Kobe Bryant brought home an Academy Award for his animated short film Dear Basketball. Thousands soon signed an online petition to revoke the Oscar, citing a woman’s allegation that Bryant raped her in 2003. While he kept the award, another petition — this one on Change.org — has since circulated, demanding the Animation

Preterm birth remains a global epidemic linked to a lifetime of potential health complications. It also is difficult to study in living creatures -- especially the uniquely precise biology of preterm birth in humans. Researchers report successfully inserting just enough human DNA into transgenic laboratory mice that it allowed the team to study a unique part of human pregnancy compared to other animals.

Pioneering research has given a fascinating fresh insight into how animal nervous systems evolved from simple structures to become the complex network transmitting signals between different parts of the body.
|Clues from a Somalian cavefish about modern mammals' dark past|

After millions of years living in darkness, a species of blind cavefish has lost an ancient system of DNA repair. That DNA repair system, found in organisms including bacteria, fungi, plants, and most other animals, harnesses energy from visible light to repair DNA damage induced by ultraviolet (UV) light. The findings are intriguing in part because only placental mammals were previously known to lack this system.

A case of BSE has been identified on a farm in Aberdeenshire, officials have said. Restrictions have been put in place at the unnamed farm as an investigation is carried out into the source of the animal disease Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, more commonly known as Mad...
|Ketogenic Diet Prevents Cognitive Decline, Two New Studies Show|
Added: 18.10.2018 12:44 | 16 views | 0 comments
A research team headed by University of Kentucky scientist Ai-Ling Lin has published two studies that demonstrate the effect of ketogenic diet (KD) - a high fat and low carbohydrate diet - on cognitive health in animals. The first study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, demonstrated that neurovascular function improved in mice who followed [...]
