Brain tumor cells found in blood may have two uses

Adults with an aggressive brain cancer have tumor cells not only in their brain but also circulating in their blood, a new study reports, and these circulating cells could eventually be used to better monitor the progression of this brain disease. Glioblastoma multiforme, or GBM, is the most common and aggressive brain tumor found in adults.

Deep-sea octopus broods eggs for over four years -- longer than any known animal

Researchers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) have observed a deep-sea octopus brooding its eggs for four and one half years—longer than any other known animal. Throughout this time, the female kept the eggs clean and guarded them from predators. This amazing feat represents an evolutionary balancing act between the benefits to the young octopuses of having plenty of time to develop within their eggs, and their mother's ability to survive for years with little or no food.

Impacts of Deepwater Horizon spill on coral communities

A study of previously unknown coral communities in the Gulf of Mexico finds additional impacts of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Because the full impact of the spill on the Gulf of Mexico is still unknown, Charles R. Fisher and colleagues documented five previously unknown coral communities off the coast of Louisiana, up to 22 km from the site of the spill, at depths up to 1,950 m.

Facial features and first impressions

A study finds that objective physical features, such as the shape of a person’s jaw, mouth, eyes, or cheekbones, can contribute to the social judgments people form when viewing the person’s face. First impressions of social traits, such as trustworthiness, dominance, and attractiveness, can be formed in as little as 100 milliseconds.

Parsing the social transmission of fear

A study reveals how specific fears may be passed down from mother to child in early infancy. Researchers have long pondered the apparent inheritance of emotional trauma, but the underpinnings of this phenomenon remain elusive.

Rising atmospheric water vapor levels and global warming

Rising water vapor levels in the upper troposphere are likely the result of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and could magnify the warming effects of the emissions, according to a study. Greenhouse gases raise temperatures by trapping the Earth’s radiant heat inside the atmosphere, and warming in turn increases the accumulation of atmospheric water vapor, the most abundant greenhouse gas.

Gender disparities in cognitive abilities

Improvements to living conditions and decreases in gender restrictions in education may alter the pattern of cognitive disparities observed between men and women, according to a study. Because mechanisms of gender-based cognitive differences remain unclear, Daniela Weber, Agneta Herlitz, and colleagues investigated the influence of improvements to living conditions and educational equality on cognitive gender differences.

Also of interest from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Mice undergoing fear conditioning displayed altered gene transcription, increased synaptic activity, and increased plasticity within the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) region of the brain, and inhibition of mPFC neurons impaired long-term memory formation, suggesting that early changes within the mPFC might enable long-term memory storage, according to a study.

Serial time-encoded amplified microscopy for ultrafast imaging based on multi-wavelength laser

Serial time-encoded amplified microscopy (STEAM) is an effective and important tool for studying dynamical events. Researchers from the Institute of Semiconductors, Chinese Academy of Sciences have figured out a STEAM system based on a multi-wavelength laser. This system has advantages of low cost, tunable frame rate and large measurement range.

Special issue on Earth’s disappearing animals

Five mass extinction events have been documented in the fossil record, and Earth is currently in the midst of a “sixth extinction wave,” according to researchers. It’s widely accepted that human activity is speeding the demise of many animal species through the destruction of wild lands, the consumption of animals as resources or luxuries and the persecution of species that humans view as threats or competitors.

Diverse ecosystems get organized for stability

Ecological networks that are highly organized are more stable, a new study reports, meaning that changes to these networks don't cause them to fall apart. The study found that the species living in highly ordered networks can experience very different growth rates, one to the next, without threatening the overall network structure.
