Parasite Brainwashes Mice to Not Fear Cats
Science & Tech  (tags: parasite, brains, mice, study, science, interesting, effects )

- 2053 days ago -
A mind-altering parasite causes mice to become permanently fearless around cats, according to a new PLoS ONE study that further suggests this creepy parasite could be present in many human brains.
ACTION NEEDED Tell the NFL to Stop Funding Sports-Injury Experiments on Animals

- 2077 days ago -
For years, the National Football League Foundation, formerly known as NFL Charities, has quietly funded horrific and deadly sports-injury experiments on dogs, mice, rats, and other animals at Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania,
Mice That 'Smell' Light Could Help Scientist Better Understand Olfaction
Science & Tech  (tags: Mice, smell, science, research, study )

- 3136 days ago -
Harvard University neurobiologists have created mice that can "smell" light, providing a potent new tool that could help researchers better understand the neural basis of olfaction.
Scientists Erase Scary Memories in Mice
Science & Tech  (tags: mice, animals, scientists, study, tech, technology, research, science, news, discovery )

- 3859 days ago -
The mice's brains were genetically engineered to overproduce a key enzyme that humans also have. Treatments could be developed for post-traumatic stress disorder.
Scientists Erase Specific Memories in Mice
Science & Tech  (tags: science, research, Medical College, brain cells, Joe Z. Tsien, Discovery Institute, mice, memories, bad, erase, pain, genetic, interesting, discovery, humans, study )

- 3861 days ago -
It sounds like science fiction, by scientists say it might one day be possible to erase undesirable memories from the brain, selectively and safely.Humans plagued by painful memories have long wished for a way to eject them from the brain.
Fearless Mice Developed By Japan Scientists
Science & Tech  (tags: animals, psychology, fear, cats, mice, japan, geneticengineering )

- 4174 days ago -
Cat and mouse may never be the same! Japanese scientists say they've used genetic engineering to create mice that show no fear of felines, a development that may shed new light on mammal behavior and the nature of fear itself.
Gene Loss Contributes to Human Evolution
Science & Tech  (tags: humans, mice, dogs, genomes, evolution, gene loss )

- 4174 days ago -
Scientists found that the loss of genes has contributed to the evolution of the human species. The mouse and human genomes were compare, searching for genes having changes significant enough to render them non-functional somewhere since the divergence.
'Painkiller' Gene Turned Off in Mice
Science & Tech  (tags: mice, gene, pain, enzyme, c-Kit, painkiller )

- 4177 days ago -
Chilli peppers activate an enzyme called c-Kit. Getting rid of c-Kit increases pain tolerance in mice, while stimulating it lowers the level at which heat becomes painful. This could lead to the development of painkillers that work by blocking the enzyme.
Sugar and Alzheimer's: Are They Linked?
Science & Tech  (tags: mice, sugar, Alzheimer disease, risks, disease )

- 4182 days ago -
Drinking too many sugary sodas may increase a person's risk for developing Alzheimer disease late in life, new research suggests. The small study was conducted in mice, not humans. The mice were fed either water or sugar water.
Scientists Cure Mice With Sickle Cell
Science & Tech  (tags: mice, therapy, stem cells, reprogrammed, skin cells, sickle cell anemia, genetic disease )

- 4182 days ago -
Scientists have the first evidence that those "reprogrammed stem cells" that made headlines last month really have the potential to treat disease: They used skin from the tails of sick mice to cure the rodents of sickle cell anemia.
Aggression Protein Found in Mice
Science & Tech  (tags: research, scientists, animals, mice, addression, protein )

- 4184 days ago -
Agression pheromones have been identified in mice that encourage fights between rival males. Scientists from Scripps Research Institute in California found that mice excrete at least two chemicals in their urine which make them brawl. Nerves in th
Newly-Identified Exercise Gene Could Help With Depression
Science & Tech  (tags: depression, mice, research, gene, exercise gene, brain, anti-depression )

- 4187 days ago -
Depression affects 16 percent of the population in the United States. Boosting an exercise-related gene in the brain works as a powerful anti-depressant in mice--a finding that could lead to a new anti-depressant drug target.
Meet the Supermouse Bred By Genetic Scientists That CAN'T Get Cancer
Science & Tech  (tags: mice, cancer, resistance, gene, protein, Par-4, liver cancer, prostate cancer, science )

- 4192 days ago -
A mouse gene called Par-4, which produces the protein. U.S. researchers genetically engineered a group of mice to have higher levels of the protein than normal. These mice were immune to many forms of cancer, such as cancer of the liver and prostate.
Transplants Without Tears
Science & Tech  (tags: mice, humans, bone marrow transplant, antibody, chemotherapy, science )

- 4192 days ago -
Scientists use a specific type of antibody to clear away old marrow stem cells in mice, allowing fresh ones to take their place. The discovery could allow patients to receive bone marrow without undergoing chemotherapy and other toxic procedures.
Blind Mice Shed Light on Human Sight Loss
