...female,' or the one that tells others, 'I am ovulating,' do not do much on their own," says Stowers Investigator Ron Yu, Ph D , who led the study. "But when the two are presented together, the male mice showed great interest in courting and mating with the female."
"The , through this latest selection of research grants, renews its most important promise to the community: to understand and help find the cure for Parkinson's disease, and for as long as that search continues, to ensure that those families and individuals who live with Parkinson's disease are able to achieve and maintain the best quality of life" noted PDF President Robin Anthony Elliott
...According to news reporting from Ashburn, Virginia , by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "We discovered a bimodal behavior in the genetically tractable organism Drosophila melanogaster that allowed us to directly probe the neural mechanisms of an action selection process. When confronted by a predator-mimicking looming stimulus, a fly responds with either a long-duration escape behavior sequence that initiates stable flight or a distinct, short-duration sequence that sacrifices flight stability for speed."
"Now, through this work, we are beginning to understand why some subsets of lung cancer are so"
