Quotes

Evgenia Salta, a scientist in the team involved in the discovery, said: "The human brain contains stem cells, which are cells that have not matured into nerve cells yet, but do have the potential to do this."
Professor Tomley said: "Understanding the genetic code of Eimeria parasites will help in the race to develop new therapies for coccidiosis.  With poultry production expansion predicted to continue for at least the next 30 years, and with Africa and Asia accounting for most of this growth, developing a new generation of cheap effective vaccines against coccidiosis will be a major contribution to global food security."
...They were checking to see if visual cues were affected by ADD. "The alpha and beta waves showed a surprising side of Attention Deficit Disorder when the waves from children with the inattentive type and the combined type were compared. Children with the inattentive type had alpha waves that showed difficulty in processing visual cues. Beta waves indicated that those adolescents with the combined type of ADD/ADHD could not effectively process visual cues and translate them to motor action."
"The taste system is arguably a really direct line to pleasure and aversion, reward and punishment, sweet and bitter. Understanding how neural circuits can encode these differentially gives us a window into other aspects of perception."
