Can Chimpanzee Vocalizations Reveal the Origins of Human Language?

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Fossil primates provide important clues about human evolution, but the sounds they made and the soft tissue involved in making those sounds weren’t preserved. So chimpanzees can provide important points of comparison for inferring the sorts of sounds our early ancestors may have made. During the 175th ASA Meeting, Michael Wilson, an associate professor at the University of Minnesota, will present his group’s work searching for similarities between the vocal communications of chimpanzees and humans.

Marine Animals Can Hear Us Swim, Kayak and Scuba Dive

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

While it is obvious that things like boats can be heard by marine life under the water, what about human activities like swimming, canoeing and scuba diving? During the 175th ASA Meeting, Christine Erbe, director of the Centre for Marine Science & Technology at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia, will describe her work exploring the impact of man-made underwater noise on marine life.

Apps for Children Should Emphasize Parent and Child Choice, Researchers Say

University of Washington

Parents don’t need to fear their children playing with iPads and other devices, researchers say. Mindful play with an adult, combined with thoughtful design features, can prove beneficial to young developing minds. New research shows that thoughtfully designed content that intentionally supports parent-child interactions facilitated the same kind of play and development as analog toys.

Wiping Out the Gut Microbiome Could Help with Heart Failure

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB)

The bacteria that reside on and within our bodies are known to have a significant influence on our health. New research suggests wiping out the gut microbiota could improve heart functioning and potentially slow the cardiac damage that occurs with heart failure.

Scientists Use Rocket Scanner to Learn How Whales Hear

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB)

Researchers have used a scanner designed for rockets to collect the first-ever computed tomography (CT) scan of an entire minke whale. By combining the CT scan results with custom-developed computer simulation tools, the researchers model how the whales hear sounds produced by other whales or by human-created (anthropogenic) sources such as ship propellers.

Human-like Walking Mechanics Evolved Before the Genus Homo

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB)

A close examination of 3.6 million year old hominin footprints discovered in Laetoli, Tanzania suggests our ancestors evolved the hallmark trait of extended leg, human-like bipedalism substantially earlier than previously thought.

Researchers Achieve HD Video Streaming at 10,000 Times Lower Power

University of Washington

Engineers at the University of Washington have developed a new HD video streaming method that doesn’t need to be plugged in. Their prototype skips the power-hungry components and has something else, like a smartphone, process the video instead.

Dr. Nathan Bryan, PH.D., to Headline Two Presentations on Vital Role of Nitric Oxide (NO) and Health at Experimental Biology 2018

Nathan Bryan, Ph.D.

Nathan Bryan, PH.D., one of the nation’s leading experts on the critically important role of nitric oxide in health and disease prevention will tell health care providers and the scientific community attending the Experimental Biology 2018 Conference,” Most, if not all of, chronic diseases are caused by decreased nitric oxide production. Regrettably we are a nation of low NO people. The impact of low NO will lead to increase disease and enormous cost.”
