How woodpecker avoids brain injury by energy conversion?

Woodpecker’s brain won’t be injured in successive peckings with high frequency, speed and acceleration. Using computed tomography, 3D-construction and computer numerical simulation techniques, Prof. Wu et al. reveal the anti-shock mechanism of brain from energy conversion aspect and the results may inspire new design of vibration protection equipment. This study has been published on SCIENCE CHINA Technological Sciences, 2014, No.7.

A sliding cell technique for diffusion measurements in liquid metals

This work presents a new “sliding cell technique” to measure interdiffusion in liquid alloys, which combines the merits of the long capillary and shear cell techniques. Using the sliding cell technique, the influence of the heating process (which affects liquid diffusion measurements in the conventional long capillary method) can be eliminated. The present work further supports the idea that to obtain accurate diffusion constants in liquid metals, the measurement conditions must be well controlled, and there should be no temperature gradients or other disturbances.

A new class of gamma-ray sources

High-energy gamma rays generally associated with extremely violent explosions like supernovae have now been reported in three classical novae, a new study reports. This may be the norm for this less energetic class of astronomical source, the authors say.

Chronic pain rewires motivation in the brain

Chronic pain causes changes in an area of the brain that can lead to decreased motivation in mice, according to a new study by Neil Schwartz and colleagues. Chronic pain rewires neurons in the nucleus accumbens with the help of a neuropeptide called galanin, leading to less motivated behavior.

A new tool for analyzing cultural mobility

A dataset on the birth and death locations of distinguished individuals over two thousand years is providing insights into cultural mobility, a new study reports. By integrating both quantitative and qualitative perspectives, the framework applied in this study may motivate the introduction of more powerful methods of analysis in the humanities – methods that ultimately reveal new insights.

A recipe for birds: 50 million years of dinosaur shrinking

To give us birds as we know them today, the dinosaur lineage that evolved into birds shrank in body size continuously for 50 million years, a new study reports. Several previous studies have highlighted the massive size transformation the dinosaur-to-bird transition entailed, involving giant, ground-dwelling theropod dinosaurs (those associated with the first bird) evolving into small, agile birds.

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.

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.
