Dog Brains Do Not Prefer Faces - Neuroscience News

Dog Brains Do Not Prefer Faces - Neuroscience News

Summary: fMRI study reveals dogs do not have a specific face area similar to that of primates. Dogs’ brain activity showed little response to faces but increased in response to seeing another dog over a human.Source: SfNEven though dogs gaze into man’s eyes, dog brains may not process faces as human brains do. A new study from Journal of Neuroscience suggests that the canine visual system is organized differently: the face network found in primates may not extend to all mammals.Faces constitute a critical part of communication for humans and other primates, so much so that...

Fecal Transplants Reverse Hallmarks of Aging - Neuroscience News

Fecal Transplants Reverse Hallmarks of Aging - Neuroscience News

Summary: Transplanting fecal microbiota from young mice to older mice reversed hallmark signs of aging in the gut, brains, and eyes. Transplanting the fecal microbiota from old to young mice had the reverse effect, inducing inflammation in the brain and depleting a key protein associated with healthy vision.Source: University of East AngliaIn the search for eternal youth, poo transplants may seem like an unlikely way to reverse the aging process.However, scientists at the Quadram Institute and the University of East Anglia have provided evidence, from research in mice, that...

‘Synthetic’ Embryo With Brain and Beating Heart Grown From Stem Cells - Neuroscience News

‘Synthetic’ Embryo With Brain and Beating Heart Grown From Stem Cells - Neuroscience News

Summary: Researchers created model embryos from mouse stem cells that form a beating heart, a brain, and the foundation for other organs. The new model provides a novel way for future researchers to create and research the earliest stages of development.Source: University of CambridgeResearchers from the University of Cambridge have created model embryos from mouse stem cells that form a brain, a beating heart, and the foundations of all the other organs of the body – a new avenue for recreating the first stages of life.The team, led by Professor Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz, developed the...

Process for Regenerating Neurons in the Eye and Brain Identified - Neuroscience News

Process for Regenerating Neurons in the Eye and Brain Identified - Neuroscience News

Summary: Researchers have identified a network of genes in Zebrafish that regulate the process of determining whether certain neurons will regenerate.Source: University of Notre DameThe death of neurons, whether in the brain or the eye, can result in a number of human neurodegenerative disorders, from blindness to Parkinson’s disease. Current treatments for these disorders can only slow the progression of the illness, because once a neuron dies, it cannot be replaced.Now, a team of researchers from the University of Notre Dame, Johns Hopkins University, Ohio State University and the...

Women's Expected Longevity Linked to Age at Birth of Last Child - Neuroscience News

Women's Expected Longevity Linked to Age at Birth of Last Child - Neuroscience News

Summary: Women who give birth to their last child later in life may have an edge when it comes to longevity. Those who gave birth later in life had longer telomeres, which are biomarkers for long-term health and longevity.Source: NAMSNo one knows for sure how long they will live. A new study, however, suggests that leukocyte telomere length may offer some key insights into a woman’s longevity and further demonstrates how maternal age at birth of last child affects telomere length and long-term health. Study results are published online today in Menopause.This is not the first time that...
