Geneticists have found a way to find out what they think of fish

February 1, 2013 20:24

On the example of zebrafish-renio researchers from Japan was the first to live to see the work of neurons in a living creature that moves freely (photo Current Biology, Muto et al.).

In order to understand how the brain perceives the external world, scientists need to acquire the ability to monitor the activity of neurons in real time during this same perception.

Japanese researchers have solved this problem by the example of the classical model organism — the zebrafish (Danio rerio). Because of its transparency of its embryos and larvae is the best suited

Japanese researchers have discovered the molecular mechanism of diabetes

Japanese scientists working in the United States of America, find that important molecular mechanism underlying the occurrence of diabetes and cancer.

The study concerned the functions of the protein component of TORC 2.

TORC 2 plays a key role in the activation of the protein Akt, affects how cells respond to insulin. Normally, insulin causes the fat cells and muscle tissue to sugar in the blood. With type 2 diabetes, the body produces enough insulin, but the cellular response to this stuff happens. Akt protein activates the proteins that are responsible for the intake of sugar from the blood, and

Satellite imagery revealed a small oil spills in the North Caspian

A group of small spots of oil emitted from underwater sources were detected in the Kazakh sector of the Caspian Sea in late May — early June, the experts explain the reasons for activation source at the bottom of the Caspian Sea, said the Engineering Technology Center (ETC), "RDC".

According to satellite data, a group of spots in the form of curved filaments in width from 50 to 150 meters and a length of 300 meters to three kilometers were found in three areas of the sea in the sector of Kazakhstan to the north-west of the peninsula Tub-Karagan (Mangyshlak).

KAZ system to protect helicopters from RAFAEL

Following the success of KAZ Trophy, RAFAEL concern is developing a similar system for the protection of helicopters. RAFAEL showed the main elements of the active protection of helicopters from unguided weapons such as rocket-propelled grenades antitank rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs). Such risks generally used at very close range, proved fatal against helicopters during nedavneshnih conflicts, namely in Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia. In one of the recent terrorist attacks on the southern border of Israel in Eilat, terrorists fired an RPG at an Israeli helicopter, but, fortunately, were not included.

Man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) are considered as the main

Vajra. How to make and use weapons of the gods?

Vajra — This is the only instrument of enlightened people of ancient culture that has come to us. All other instruments destroyed by disasters or time. Vajra only reached us in virtually unmodified, thanks to the few who managed to stay alive after the flood. Therefore, we must look more closely at this amazing device …

This unit is based on the as yet little-studied and most of today's deflected science torsion fields. Torsion fields and torsion technologies to perfectly mastered the Atlanteans. An example of this — the

Aging can be prevented

02.12.2010

Researchers made the first rejuvenation of animals suffering from premature aging by a particular enzyme activation in cells of tissues. The researchers reported that this method can be used to prevent aging in humans.

The authors of publications have demonstrated the blocking effect of the enzyme telomerase, followed by its "inclusion" in specially bred mice genetic line. The function of telomerase in cell elongation is the end portions of chromosomes, called telomeres. Recent decrease in the length of each new cell division, but because after they reach

Make your space is harmonious with the help of feng shui

01.03.2011

Feng Shui — is the ancient Chinese practice, with which you can control the flow of positive energy Qi and achieve harmony in space. Since ancient times in China, using the rules and laws of feng shui to find the best places to build houses. Nowadays, feng shui is widespread, and its use goes far beyond the architectural needs.

The most important principle of feng shui — the need to monitor the flow of Qi and do not let it stagnate.

But we should not "throw the fight" to change everything at once.

By irradiation with light monkeys smarter

30.07.2012

Scientists have demonstrated that the results of tests on primates thinking can improve methods optogenetiki — specifically activating the desired area of the brain light. The work is published in the journal Current Biology, and its summary reports NewScientist. Rhesus monkeys were trained to watch on a computer screen for moving dots. Animals had to translate that point of view, which light up brighter than the rest.

During training, biologists have watched what area of the brain involved in performing the task. For this purpose, functional MRI, which shows the activity of cells
