Scientists have discovered surprising differences in neurons between primates and non-primates

Scientists who have taken a closer look at the structure of neurons in the brain have discovered a key structural difference between primates and non-primates in cortical neurons – the cells that are part of the brain. The results give us more insight into these more complex organs, and how the shape and function of …

A new corona virus has been found circulating among rodents in Sweden

Bats and pangolins aren’t the only wild animals harboring novel coronaviruses. Rodents such as rats, mice, and mice can also carry viruses that are sometimes able to jump into our species. Among the branches of Swedish banks backed in red (Myodes glariolus), researchers have now identified a widespread coronavirus and named it the Grimsö virus, …

Scientists break an amazing record for platinum’s melting point

Scientists have figured out how to make platinum affordable as a catalyst: turning it into a low-temperature liquid. It has been known for centuries that noble metals such as platinum, gold, ruthenium and palladium are excellent catalysts for chemical reactions, because they help break chemical bonds between atoms more efficiently than other metals. But noble …

Study Says Neurotoxin ‘Toxic Flowers’ Could Be the Source of Alzheimer’s Plaque

Alzheimer’s disease has long frustrated our best efforts to identify its underlying causes. Now, a new study in mice suggests that “poisonous flowers” swollen with cellular debris could be the root source of one of the hallmarks of this wretched disease and a pretty sinister sign of the failure of the waste disposal system within …
