An important migratory route of young neurons in the brains of newborns has been discovered
An important migratory route of young neurons in the brains of newborns has been discovered
A study published in Nature, with notable participation from the University of Valencia, has identified a new migratory route of young neurons in the human infant brain. This migratory pathway extends from the lateral ventricle, where these cells are born, to the entorhinal cortex, an area interconnected with the regions where memory and learning are consolidated.

Research explains how depopulation was used to justify wind farms without taking the environment into account
Research explains how depopulation was used to justify wind farms without taking the environment into account
Jaume Pla and Javier Esparcia, researchers from the University of Valencia (UV), have analysed rural depopulation in the Valencian press between 1996 and 2022, and conclude that this factor or job creation has been subordinated to the construction of parks wind farms, often without paying enough attention to environmental issues.

Lack of names of women in microbiology
Lack of names of women in microbiology
Mètode magazine publishes a report on the research developed at the Universitat de València on the scientific names dedicated to female researchers. Cytophaga johnsonae. This is the name of the bacterium named after Delia E. Johnson, American microbiologist and the first woman in the history of microbiology to name an organism, one hundred and twenty-five years after a man did so.

New mechanism to control cell division
New mechanism to control cell division
Research from the University of Valencia describes a new mechanism to control cell division The Cell Cycle Regulation in Eukaryotes research group at the University of Valencia (UV) has discovered a new way to control cell division, a key process to understand diseases such as cancer, in which cell proliferation loses the correct operation of its control and braking mechanisms.

The LHC’s ATLAS collaboration publishes the first measurements of the Higgs boson at record energy
The ATLAS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN has made new measurements of the production rate of Higgs bosons at the energy of 13. TeV, a record value that the LHC accelerator has managed to achieve in its third period of operation known as Run 3. The results, published this week in the European Physical Journal C, have the direct participation of the IFIC researcher Salvador Martí García.

CIDE analyses the impact of forest fires on marine ecosystems
CIDE analyses the impact of forest fires on marine ecosystems
An article published in the journal Trends in Ecology & Evolution by the Desertification Research Centre (CIDE, UV-CSIC-GVA) and the ECOAQUA Institute (ULPGC) proposes for the first time a conceptual framework for the study of fire ecology in the marine environment. The work warns about the disturbances caused by forest fires in marine systems and raises the main ideas and questions to be resolved from this new study perspective.

Bacteria in the syphilis family were present in America at least a thousand years before the arrival of Christopher Columbus
A new study reveals that bacteria in the syphilis family were present in America at least a thousand years before the arrival of Christopher Columbus One of the greatest mysteries in the history of epidemics is whether or not syphilis was introduced into Europe after Columbus- first voyage to the Americas.

A novel methodology used in deserts confirms that the beaches in the south of Valencia lost 70% of their surface in the last 30 years
Researchers from the Cavanilles Institute of the University of Valencia (UV) reveal in an article published in the journal Urban Science that the surface area of three beaches south of the port of València (Pinedo, El Saler and La Garrofera) has increased from 170 hectares of sand in the decade of the 90s to 43 in 2022.

Great genetic differences of the European population in the Palaeolithic and Neolithic
A study shows great genetic differences of the European population in the Palaeolithic and Neolithic The University of Valencia (UV) participates in an international study published in Nature magazine and led by the University of Copenhaguen in which more than 1,600 ancient human genomes are analysed to shed unprecedented insights into the past human gene pools of western Eurasia (current Europe).

Artificial Intelligence shows that socioeconomic level conditions migrations due to environmental catastrophes
An article from the Image and Signal Processing (ISP) research group of the University of Valencia (UV), led by Gustau Camps-Valls and which has used Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a tool, concludes that the socioeconomic level explains the population movements that occur after catastrophes generated by extreme natural phenomena such as floods, windstorms and landslides.

Playful reading on paper helps understanding more than if it is done through digital media
A study by the Interdisciplinary Reading Research Structure (ERI) of the University of Valencia (UV) concludes that reading for leisure on paper helps comprehension more than if it is done with digital media. The work, published in the Review of Educational Research magazine, the most prestigious in educational policies, and in which more than 450,000 people have participated, also concludes that in primary and secondary schools reading should be encouraged, especially in printed format.

Researchers propose a theoretical model that explains the interior of a blazar, the most powerful source of radiation in the Universe
University of Valencia researchers propose a theoretical model that explains the interior of a blazar, the most powerful source of radiation in the Universe José María Martí and Manel Perucho, researchers at the University of Valencia, are the authors of the theoretical model that has made it possible to interpret the image with the highest resolution and sensitivity ever achieved of a blazar, the jet of matter that emerges from the nucleus of a galaxy, in this case 3C 279, at a speed close to that of light.

Social relations in the peninsular Copper Age went from great connectivity to regionalisation in just 300 years
Social relations in the peninsular Copper Age went from great connectivity to regionalisation in just 300 years
Researchers from the University of Valencia have revealed that social relations during the Copper Age in the Iberian Peninsula went from a first homogeneous phase of great connectivity to a more fragmented and regionalised stage. Through the analysis of the ceramic decorations of the Bell Beaker vase, characteristic of the European Chalcolithic and associated with funerary contexts of the elites, the work published in the Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory concludes that these vessels were -democratised- in almost 300 years, with the consequent reinterpretation and heterogenisation.
