Ant Antennae Communicate Vital Social ID Information

Scientists have shone new light on the complexities of insect communication with the discovery that ants not only pick up information through their antennae, but also use them to convey social signals.   More...

Link Found Between Brain Metabolism and Fluid Intelligence

By measuring a metabolic activity marker using magnetic resonance spectroscopy, a new study in young adults has indicated that healthy brain metabolism corresponds with fluid intelligence, a measure of one’s ability to solve unusual or complex problems.  More...

A Bacterial Lifestyle Switch Provides Antibiotic Resistance

Researchers have reported for the first time that following contact with certain antibiotics the pathogenic Bacillus cereus can switch into a special slowed-down mode and form small colony variants that are difficult to diagnose and almost impossible to treat with certain antibiotics.  More...

When Exercise Is Unhealthy: Study Sheds New Light on Sudden Cardiac Death

Researchers have discovered new aspects, involving a mutated protein, of a not-well-understood mechanism that underlies how sudden heart failure can occur during endurance exercise in patients with arrhythmogenic ventricular cardiomyopathy, which currently has no standardized guidelines for exercise management.  More...
