UT Dallas Study Challenges Theory on Unconscious Memory System

3 days ago − University of Texas at Dallas
A new study by a UT Dallas researcher challenges a long-accepted scientific theory about the role the hippocampus plays in our unconscious memory. For decades, scientists have theorized that this part of the brain is not involved in processing unconscious memory, the type that allows us to do things like button a shirt without having to think about it. But research by Dr. Richard Addante, a senior…

Researchers Identify the Mitochondrial 'Shield' That Helps Cancer Cells Survive

5 hours ago − Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology
Scientists have moved closer to understanding why cancer cells can be so resilient, even when faced with the onslaught of nearly toxic drug cocktails, radiation, and even our own immune systems. A new research report appearing in the March 2015 issue of The FASEB Journal, shows that intermediate filaments formed by a protein called "vimentin" or VIF, effectively "insulate" the mitochondria in cancer cells from any attempt to destroy…

In the City, Rabbits Build More Densely

12 days ago − Goethe University Frankfurt
FRANKFURT. European wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) not only achieve high population densities in the city, their burrows are also built more densely and on a smaller external scale. That is something researchers in the Goethe University's Task Force on Ecology and Evolution have discovered in their study on wild rabbit populations in and around Frankfurt. As they report in the advance version of the Journal of Zoology, small burrow…
