Monkeys Cloned in World First

January 25th, 2018

Via: Independent: Two monkeys are the first ever primates to be cloned using the technique that created Dolly the sheep. The technique brings the prospect of cloned human beings even more closer. But scientists caution that there may be no good reason to create such clones, and that ethical and legal questions need to be […]

Florida Monkeys Excreting Rare Disease that Can Kill Humans, Scientists Warn

January 10th, 2018

Never Forget: Dr. Mary’s Monkey by Edward T. Haslam Via: Guardian: Wildlife managers in Florida say they want to remove roaming monkeys from the state in light of a new study published on Wednesday, which finds some of the animals are excreting a virus that can be dangerous to humans. Scientists studying a growing population […]

Magneto-Thermal Genetic Deep Brain Stimulation of Motor Behaviors in Awake, Freely Moving Mice

August 21st, 2017

Via: eLIFE: Establishing how neurocircuit activation causes particular behaviors requires modulating the activity of specific neurons. Here, we demonstrate that magnetothermal genetic stimulation provides tetherless deep brain activation sufficient to evoke motor behavior in awake mice. The approach uses alternating magnetic fields to heat superparamagnetic nanoparticles on the neuronal membrane. Neurons heat-sensitized by expressing TRPV1 […]
