Study First to Confirm Where Baby White Sharks ‘Hang Out’ in the North Atlantic

Florida Atlantic University

A team of scientists is the first to confirm the movement patterns and seasonal migrations of baby white sharks in the north Atlantic Ocean. They put the New York Bight shark nursery theory to test by deploying satellite and acoustic tags on 10 baby white sharks (less than 1 year old) off Long Island’s coast. Results provide novel insights into the distribution of this vulnerable early stage of life that complements recent work on larger white sharks.

Research by LLNL Scientists May Help Validate Organ-on-a-Chip Devices

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

A new study in which Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientists compared drug responses in the brains of rodents to drug responses of brain cells cultured in Lab-developed “brain-on-a-chip” devices may be a critical first step to validating chip-based brain platforms, LLNL researchers said.

That Sound Makes Me Dizzy

University of Utah

Researchers from the University of Utah have discovered why certain people experience dizziness when they hear a particular sound, such as a musical tone. For patients with semicircular canal dehiscence, certain acoustic tones cause the inner ear fluid to pump which sends an incorrect signal to the brain and creates dizziness.

Men and Women have Different Genetic Risk Factors for Developing Brain Cancer

Case Western Reserve University

Glioma is the most common type of primary malignant brain tumor in the United States; glioblastoma being the most common type of glioma in adults. While sex differences in the incidence and survival rates of glioma were known, researchers had not investigated whether genetic differences based on sex could cast light on potential differences in the risk profile of glioma between men and women. Now, a team from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, together with an international consortium of researchers, have discovered that men and women have different genetic risk factors for developing glioma.

To Share or Not to Share?

University of Vienna

When are primary school children willing to share valuable resources with others and when are they not? A team of researchers from the University of Vienna lead by cognitive biologist Lisa Horn investigated this question in a controlled behavioural experiment. The motivation to share seems to be influenced by group dynamical and physiological factors, whereas friendship between the children seems to be largely irrelevant. The results of their study have been published in the journal Scientific Reports.

Nanotechnology for Plant Nutrition

American Technion Society

Technion researchers have found they can significantly increase agricultural yields, by using nanoscale delivery platforms that until now were used to transport drugs to specific targets in a patient's body. The technology increases the penetration rate of nutrients into the plant, from 1% to approximately 33%.
