Juvenile plasticity returned to adult mice brains

Juvenile plasticity returned to adult mice brains | The virtual life | Scoop.it
In 2013, researchers from Yale University reported the discovery of a molecular switch that enabled the rigid brains of adult mice to return to the high levels of plasticity found in juvenile brains. Now a team at UC Irvine has achieved similar results using a different approach.

Detection of mini black holes at the LHC could indicate parallel universes in extra dimensions | The virtual life | Scoop.it
(Phys.org)—The possibility that other universes exist beyond our own universe is tantalizing, but seems nearly impossible to test. Now a group of physicists has suggested that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the largest particle collider in the world, may be able to uncover the existence of parallel ...

Some genes 'foreign' in origin and not from our ancestors

Some genes 'foreign' in origin and not from our ancestors | The virtual life | Scoop.it
Many animals, including humans, acquired essential 'foreign' genes from microorganisms co-habiting their environment in ancient times, according to new research. The study challenges conventional views that animal evolution relies solely on genes passed down through ancestral lines, suggesting that, at least in some lineages, the process is still ongoing.
