What Makes Birds So Smart?
Researchers at Ruhr University Bochum explain how it is possible for the small brains of pigeons, parrots and corvids to perform equally well as those of mammals, despite their significant differences. Since the late 19th century, it has been a common belief among researchers that high intelligence requires the high computing capacity of large brains.

Caring glassfrog fathers have smaller testes
An international team of researchers including the University of Bern shows in a new study that male glassfrogs that care for their offspring have smaller testes than males of species that do not provide any brood care. This indicates an evolutionary trade-off between sperm production and parenting.

Largest study of developmental microRNA dynamics uncovers mechanism of their regulation
Largest study of developmental microRNA dynamics uncovers mechanism of their regulation
Gene expression is controlled by numerous small RNA molecules called microRNAs, or miRNAs. However, specific functions of most miRNAs remain poorly understood. Working in worms, FMI researchers created an encyclopedia of miRNA dynamics during development, uncovering mechanisms of their regulation. The findings help to better understand typical development and may reveal how these tiny molecules contribute to disease when they become dysfunctional.
