Study findings offer new insights into the intricacies of neurological function.
Researchers analyzed genetic material from cells in the prefrontal cortex from four closely related primates to characterize subtle differences in cell type and genetics.
Researchers have found evidence of high-energy neutrino emission from Messier 77, also known as NGC 1068, an active galaxy in the constellation of Cetus.
If no steps are taken to shield insects from climate change, the consequences will “drastically reduce our ability to build a sustainable future based on healthy, functional ecosystems.”
Researchers investigate how microbes that can both eat and photosynthesize might evolve in a changing environment.
Detailed images show the exploding star cooling and could help scientists learn more about the stars and galaxies present in the early universe.
Scientists have demonstrated for the first time that the associated Cas9 enzyme can bind to and cut the target DNA at very low temperatures.
Analysis of ocean plastic pollution and whale foraging behavior tracked with noninvasive tags shows whales are ingesting tiny specks of plastic in far bigger quantities than previously thought.
Scientists have created an innovative way to build synthetic molecules that can target these previously “undruggable” transcription factors.
Study found that dietary inulin fiber alters the metabolism of certain gut bacteria, which in turn triggers what scientists call type 2 inflammation in the gut and lungs.
Simulations show quirky behavior helps fish estimate swimming direction and speed
Scientists analyzed all 6.7-or-greater magnitude strike-slip earthquakes worldwide since 2000 — there were 87 in all — and identified 12 of the supershear type.
Ramped-up animal agriculture would increase efficiency, but potentially increase animal-borne diseases, risk of future pandemics, new analysis finds.
Analysis of primates shows permanent changes in bone composition after giving birth, breastfeeding.
Throughout Earth’s ancient history, there were several periods of time when many fish actually favored the cold, dark, barren waters of the deep sea.
Light-powered catalyst makes hydrogen energy from pungent gas in one-step process
A recently released set of topography maps provides new evidence for an ancient northern ocean on Mars.
Researchers’ recent observations of a stellar-mass black hole called Cygnus X-1 reveal new details about the configuration of extremely hot matter.
A study has found that Eurasian jays can pass a version of the ‘marshmallow test’ – and those with the greatest self-control also score the highest on intelligence tests.
Scientists investigated signs of pancreatic cancer, including weight loss, hyperglycaemia and diabetes and demonstrated the timelines for when they develop in relation to cancer.
