Earliest roots of psychiatric disorders traced to stress effects on single gene

Earliest roots of psychiatric disorders traced to stress effects on single gene | My world | Scoop.it
Babies whose mothers were exposed during pregnancy to stressors such as trauma, illness, alcohol, or drug abuse become susceptible to various psychiatric disorders later in life. Now, researchers think that it may be the stressor's effect on single gene that gives rise to conditions such as schizophrenia, PTSD, autism, and bipolar disorders...

New planet discovered that just might hold life

New planet discovered that just might hold life | My world | Scoop.it
Scientists hunting for planets far beyond our solar system have discovered the first alien world whose rocky surface may hold liquid water - the essential ingredient for life as we know it. The newfound planet lies some 500 light-years away in the Milky Way constellation Cygnus, and it marks another triumph for NASA's Kepler spacecraft, whose telescope is scanning more than 145,000 stars in its search for distant planets. Kepler has now found confirmed evidence for more than 960 planets in distant solar systems since it was launched five years ago, and continues finding them in the mass of data it has collected since the telescope's main pointing system became disabled nearly a year ago. The latest exoplanet's identity was determined from Kepler's telescopic data by an international research team led by planet hunters at the SETI Institute and NASA's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, together with scientists from a dozen other research institutions. [...] Quintana said, it has taken four years of analysis to make sure Kepler186f is indeed what it is, the most Earth-like exoplanet yet discovered.
