Nutrient oasis is just a nice way of saying rotting corpse

by Rosin Cerate in Rosin Cerate

A whale fall is a pleasant little ecosystem that springs up whenever a whale dies and sinks to the bottom of deeper parts of the ocean. Sunlight doesn't penetrate to such depths, so there aren't any plants or algae churning out bits of easily digestible organic matter for other organisms to eat. Thus, it's feast or famine for any creatures living in the deep sea, and a whale carcass is a five star buffet. Whale fall communities are mostly made up of invertebrates, including worms capable of........ Read more »

Scientists discover what controls waking up and going to sleep

by Dr. Jekyll in Lunatic Laboratories

Fifteen years ago, an odd mutant fruit fly caught the attention and curiosity of Dr. Ravi Allada, a circadian rhythms expert at Northwestern University, leading the neuroscientist to recently discover how an animal’s biological clock wakes it up in the morning and puts it to sleep at night. The clock’s mechanism, it turns out, is much like a light switch.... Read more »

How To Be a Better Person: Awe Yourself

by Jeremiah Stanghini in Jeremiah Stanghini

Research published earlier this year seems to indicate that when we’re “awed,” we’re more likely to engage in prosocial or altrusitic behaviour.

Gap junctions: versatile mediators of long-range developmental signals

by Mike Levin in the Node

My lab works on developmental bioelectricity, studying how cells communicate via endogenous gradients of plasma membrane resting potential (Vmem) in order to coordinate their activity during pattern regulation (Levin, 2013; Levin, 2014b; Tseng and Levin, 2013). It is well-known that resting potential is an important regulatory parameter for individual cells’ proliferation, differentiation, and oncogenic potential[...]

OK, a few choice words to start: the National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD), nationwide cohort study, large participant numbers.That's right.

Sometimes a drug is just a specific bit of animal flesh

by Rosin Cerate in Rosin Cerate

Although now obsolete, the use of crudely processed hunks of flesh cut out of dead animals in the treatment of various diseases was widespread in the past. These fleshy parts, usually glands or organs, contain hormones and vitamins necessary for good health that at the time had either not yet been isolated or were difficult/expensive to isolate and use as drugs. They were prepared and administered in several ways: pulverized and snorted, purified somewhat and injected, or cooked up and eaten. Un........ Read more »
