Researchers have successfully induced a hibernation-like state in non-hibernating rodents, suggesting the possibility of synthetic hibernation for humans.
If bumblebees find too little pollen, they pierce the leaves of non-flowering plants in order to force them to produce flowers more quickly.
Identifying the critical questions regarding long distance regressive signaling and how they are important for understanding nervous system development and pathogenesis in neurodegeneration.
The lifespan of C. elegans, an organism that responds to cellular stress in a similar way to humans, can be extended by activating a mechanism initiated by glial cells in the brain.
Studying the links between cilia and signaling pathways sheds light on our understanding of nervous system development.
Researchers find one more piece in the puzzle of ancient ecology.
What is the advantage of laying eggs that are expensive to produce and take a long time to hatch? Perhaps there is more to this paradox then we originally thought.
The remarkably agile arms of the octopus are a source of inspiration for the design of autonomous robots. With nearly two-thirds of their neurons residing in the eight arms, these appendages are able to sense and respond to environmental conditions with little to no...
Although it is essential to develop vaccines for the 2019 coronavirus, it is unlikely that any effort made at the moment will benefit patients in the current outbreak.
Researchers look beyond our chimpanzees and bonobos to trace the evolution of human language.
Understanding how viruses protect their genome can now be accomplished using physics-based techniques.
Physicists design super-human red blood cells to deliver drugs to specific targets.
What were the driving factors behind organelle evolution?
