University of Alberta neuroscientists have identified the neural circuit that may underlay intelligence in birds, according to a new study. The discovery is an example of convergent evolution between the brains of birds and primates, with the potential to provide insight into the neural basis of human intelligence. “An area of the brain that plays […]

Most of the human brain’s estimated 86 billion nerve cells, or neurons, can ultimately engage in a two-way dialogue with any other neuron. To shed more light on how neurons in this labyrinthine network integrate information – that is, precisely how multiple neurons send and combine their messages to a target neuron – a team […]

Authors of report on bird declines say intensive farming and pesticides could turn Europe’s farmland into a desert that ultimately imperils all humans The “catastrophic” decline in French farmland birds signals a wider biodiversity crisis in Europe which ultimately imperils all humans, leading scientists have told the Guardian. A dramatic fall in farmland birds such as skylarks, […]

The brain is an enormously complex thing. Trying to suss out the genetic overlap of the disorders that strike it is perhaps even more complicated. Still, the Brainstorm Consortium, a collaboration of researchers from Harvard, Stanford and MIT, is aiming to do just that. A new study put out by the group shows there are distinctions in […]

A team of scientists has identified 27 new viruses that infect European honeybees (Apis mellifera) and other bee species. “Populations of bees around the world are declining, and viruses are known to contribute to these declines. Despite the importance of bees as pollinators of flowering plants in agricultural and natural landscapes and the importance of viruses to […]

Iron-studded graphene offers noble metal free route to important chemical feedstock Single iron atoms embedded in graphene can catalyse the conversion of methane into methanol at room temperature. There is an abundance of methane in natural gas reserves and shale gas, which is usually burnt for power production. However, methane has a lot of potential as a […]
