First Winged Mammals From the Jurassic Period Discovered

Two 160 million-year-old mammal fossils discovered in China show that the forerunners of mammals in the Jurassic Period evolved to glide and live in trees. With long limbs, long hand and foot fingers, and wing-like membranes for tree-to-tree gliding, Maiopatagium furculiferum and Vilevolodon diplomylos are the oldest known gliders in the long history of early mammals.

Researchers ‘Count Cars’ – Literally – to Find a Better Way to Control Heavy Traffic

There’s “Counting Crows,” counting sheep, counting blessings and now researchers at FAU have their own version of “counting cars” – literally – in an attempt to improve traffic flow on our nation’s overcrowded roads. And with more than 263 million registered passenger vehicles in the U.S. and more than 14 million registered vehicles in Florida alone, this is no small feat.

Is It Ringworm? Signs and Symptoms

What do athlete’s foot, jock itch, and barber’s itch all have in common? They are all cases of ringworm, say dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology. However, despite its name, ringworm is a skin infection caused by a fungus, not a worm. It is very common, and your risk increases in hot, humid weather.

Amniotic Sac in a Dish: Stem Cells Form Structures That Could Aid Understanding of Infertility & More

The first few weeks after sperm meets egg still hold many mysteries. Among them: what causes the process to fail, leading to many cases of infertility. But scientists haven’t had a good way to explore the biology behind this phenomenon. Now, a new achievement using human stem cells could give researchers a chance to see what they couldn’t before, while avoiding ethical issues associated with studying actual embryos.
