Mini robotic labs for testing fly behaviour invented by Imperial researchers
New machines could be a boost to animal and human neuroscience research as they allow lots of insects to be tested at once. They can be easily and cheaply made through 3D printing, or even out of folded card or LEGO, combined with a simple Raspberry Pi computer. Fruit flies are a common research animal in neuroscience studies because of their surprising similarities to humans.

H7N9 influenza is both lethal and transmissible in animal model for flu
In 2013, an influenza virus that had never before been detected began circulating among poultry in China. It caused several waves of human infection and in late 2016, the number of people to become sick from the H7N9 virus suddenly started to rise. As of late July 2017, nearly 1,600 people had tested positive for avian H7N9.

Brain takes seconds to switch modes during tasks
The brain rapidly switches between operational modes in response to tasks and what is replayed can predict how well a task will be completed, according to a new UCL study in rats. "We know that the brain replays remembered experiences during rest to extract important information, this consolidation process preserves memories for recall in the future.

Three-quarters of insect population have been lost in nature reserves over three decades The loss of bees, butterflies and other flying insects from within protected nature reserves has been even more severe than previously feared, a new report has revealed. The total biomass of flying insects in 63 nature reserves has decreased by more than 75 per cent since 1989 and above 80 per cent in the height of summer.

Tropical trees show coexistence is path to diversity
On small Barro Colorado Island, in the middle of the Panama Canal, hundreds of tree species thrive. Jacob Usinowicz, an ecologist, recalls visiting there one field season and being astounded by the number of mahogany seeds littering the tropical forest floor. "They produce seeds like maple trees, all these little helicopters, and the trees produce thousands of them," says Usinowicz, a former graduate student in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Reciprocal activity of brain proteins necessary for learning and memory
FINDINGS A UCLA team reports that a protein called IDOL targets and prevents overproduction of the synaptic protein ApoER2, an adjustment that allows connections between neurons to change during the learning process for humans and animals. The researchers conclude that reciprocal IDOL/ApoER2 activity in the brain allows synapses to undergo formation and disassembly as learning occurs.

Penn-led Study Identifies Genes Responsible for Diversity of Human Skin Colors
Human populations feature a broad palette of skin tones. But until now, few genes have been shown to contribute to normal variation in skin color, and these had primarily been discovered through studies of European populations. Now, a study of diverse African groups led by University of Pennsylvania geneticists has identified new genetic variants associated with skin pigmentation.

Watch: New method reduces nitrate content in spinach
Spinach is a nutritious vegetable, but is not recommended for infants because of its nitrate content. Now a doctoral thesis from Lund University in Sweden presents a simple method capable of reducing the nitrate content by up to 70 per cent. Nitrate is a common nutrient for plants and is therefore also present in other leafy green vegetables, such as arugula and chard.
