Birds and Primates Share Brain Cell Types Linked to Intelligence

University of Chicago Medical Center

In a new study, published this week in the journal Current Biology, scientists from UChicago show that some neurons in bird brains form the same kind of circuitry and have the same molecular signature as cells that enable connectivity between different areas of the mammalian neocortex.

In Effort to Treat Rare Blinding Disease, Researchers Turn Stem Cells into Blood Vessels

University of California San Diego Health

People with a mutated ATF6 gene have a malformed or missing fovea, severely limiting vision. UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers first linked ATF6 to this type of vision impairment. Now the team discovered that a chemical that activates ATF6 converts patient stem cells into blood vessels.

Understanding a Fly’s Body Temperature May Help People Sleep Better

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

In findings that one day may help people sleep better, scientists have uncovered the first molecular evidence that two anciently conserved proteins in the brains of insects and mammals share a common biological ancestry as regulators of body temperature rhythms crucial to metabolism and sleep. Researchers publish their data in the journal Genes & Development.
