Preemature Brains Reap Long-Term Benefits from Kangaroo Mother Care
Kangaroo Mother Care – a technique in which a breastfed premature infant remains in skin-to-skin contact with the parent's chest rather than being placed in an incubator – has lasting positive impact on brain development

Autism Symptoms Could Arise From Unreliable Neural Responses
Diverse symptoms associated with autism could be explained by unreliable activity of neurons in the brain in response to basic, nonsocial sensory information

Scientists Show Biological Mechanism Can Trigger Epileptic Seizures
Scientists have discovered the first direct evidence that a biological mechanism long suspected in epilepsy is capable of triggering the brain seizures – opening the door for studies to seek improved treatments or even preventative therapies

Theory: Music Underlies Language Acquisition
Contrary to the prevailing theories that music and language are cognitively separate or that music is a byproduct of language, theorists advocate that music underlies the ability to acquire language

Role of Novel Epigenetic Brain Chemical
Researchers have identified a new role of a chemical involved in controlling the genes underlying memory and learning

Eating Well in Pregnancy Reduces Baby's Obesity Risk Regardless of Mom's Size
New research suggests that a protein called SIRT1 responds to excess fat calories in pregnancy by rewriting the histone code leading to infants with fatty-livers and eventual obesity

Breast Cancer Risk Linked to Early-Life Diet and Metabolic Syndrome
Striking new evidence suggests diet and related factors early in life can boost the risk for breast cancer – totally independent of the body's production of the hormone estrogen

The Most Extensive Pictures Ever of DNA Mutation
Scientists have produced one of the most extensive pictures ever of mutation processes in the DNA sequence of the E.coli bacteria

Scientists Create First 3-D Model of a Protein Critical to Embryo Development
With this model, scientists can see how AEBP2 helps stabilize PRC2 while helping to understanding how PRC2 is involved in regulating the modification of histones

Muscle Stem Cells Must Be In The Right Place at The Right Time
Muscle stem cells must reside within special niches inside muscle fibers for efficient growth and repair of muscle tissue

Maternal Drinking During Pregnancy Can Damage the Fetal Brain
A new study has examined the impact of maternal drinking on fetal habituation - or learning abilities - while still residing in the mother's womb

Common Gene Mutation Affects Autism Spectrum Disorders
For the first time, researchers show a gene mutation which reduces MET protein expression - specifically impacting the network between different areas of the brain involved in social behavior, including recognizing emotions

New Insights On Cell Competition
A research project clarifies how tissues and organs select the 'best' cells for themselves, at the expense of 'loser cells,' (slower cells) who might cause disease
