What does the study of domesticated birds tell us about the evolution of human language?
What does the study of domesticated birds tell us about the evolution of human language?
Language is one of the most notable abilities humans have. It allows us to express complex meanings and transmit knowledge from generation to generation. An important question in human biology is how this ability ended up being developed, and researchers from the universities of Barcelona, Cologne and Tokyo have treated this issue in a recent article.

New Measure to Predict Stress Resilience
Researchers at the University of Zurich show that increased sensitivity in a specific region of the brain contributes to the development of anxiety and depression in response to real-life stress. Their study establishes an objective neurobiological measure for stress resilience in humans. Some people don't seem to be too bothered when it comes to handling stress.

Conservationists may be unintentionally spreading pathogens between threatened animal populations
Conservationists may be unintentionally spreading pathogens between threatened animal populations
Moving endangered species to new locations is often used as part of species conservation strategies, and can help to restore degraded ecosystems. But scientists say there is a high risk that these relocations are accidentally spreading diseases and parasites. We've seen that mixing different populations of mussels can allow widespread transmission of gonad-eating worms.

Model reveals surprising disconnect between physical characteristics and genetic ancestry in certain populations
Stanford model reveals surprising disconnect between physical characteristics and genetic ancestry in certain populations Stanford biologists have built a model examining the relationship between physical traits and genetic ancestry in populations formed from the mixture of multiple founding groups. They found that the relationship dissipates over generations.

A Swiss Army Knife for Genomic Data
A good way to find out what a cell is doing-whether it is growing out of control as in cancers, or is under the control of an invading virus, or is simply going about the routine business of a healthy cell-is to look at its gene expression. Though a vast majority of cells in an organism all contain the same genes, how those genes are expressed is what gives rise to different cell types-the difference between a muscle cell and a neuron, for example.
