US’ Princeton University researchers capture first 3D recordings of neural activity in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans

A latest method has been developed to record 3D footage of neural activity in nearly the entire brain of a free-moving animal. The development has come up as an advance that may be helpful in better understanding how neurons manage action and perception in animals.

Pitch Perception Might Have Evolved Over 40 Million Years Ago: Study

Pitch Perception Might Have Evolved Over 40 Million Years Ago: Study

Findings of a recently conducted study unveiled that the unique human ability to recognize a particular sound quality known as pitch is not restricted only to humans. Researchers have found new behavioral evidence that marmosets and ancient monkeys used auditory cues same like humans to distinguish between low and high notes.

Research finds hospital policies to determine brain death do not comply with set parameters

Research finds hospital policies to determine brain death do not comply with set parameters

A research has found that policies to find out brain death vary extensively from one hospital to another. It has suggested that there are lapses in the policies. Despite the existence of national standards, the rules to establish brain death differ widely from hospital to hospital.

Hospitals have shown large improvements in standardization of brain death assessments since 2010 criteria were published

Hospitals have shown large improvements in standardization of brain death assessments since 2010 criteria were published

According to a study published recently in the journal JAMA Neurology, not every hospital has adopted the new guidelines for hospitals determining brain death. The study was led by Yale University neurologist David Greer.

The American Academy of Neurology issued updated guidelines for hospitals for determining brain death in 2010.

Migration Expected To Modify Irish Genes

Migration Expected To Modify Irish Genes

Geneticists from Trinity College Dublin and archaeologists from Queen's University Belfast commenced a research to find out the sequence of genomes of the skulls of four Irish citizens. The aim of the study, which was published on December 28 2015 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is to determine the origins of the Irish people.
