A study reveals how the hippocampus contributes to social behavior.
While most Americans do not support policies designed to increase distribution of naloxone -- a medication that reverses the effects of a drug overdose -- certain types of educational messages about its lifesaving benefits may bolster support for its use, new Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health research suggests.
The European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft first began orbiting comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in August 2014. Almost immediately, scientists began to wonder about several surprisingly deep, almost perfectly circular pits on the comet's surface. Now, a new study based on close-up imagery taken by Rosetta suggests that these pits are sinkholes, formed when ices beneath the comet's surface sublimate, or turn directly to gas.
An international team of researchers has found some of the first solid evidence that narcolepsy may be a so-called 'hit-and-run' autoimmune disease.
Among obese participants with type 2 diabetes mellitus, bariatric surgery with two years of a low-level lifestyle intervention resulted in more disease remission than did lifestyle intervention alone, according to a study published online by JAMA Surgery.
The use of antipsychotic medication increased among adolescents and young adults from 2006 to 2010 but not among children 12 years or younger, according to an article published online by JAMA Psychiatry.
Scientists have peered into the eye-like structure of single-celled marine plankton called warnowiids and found it contains many of the components of a complex eye.
When it comes to communicating with each other, some cells may be more 'old school' than was previously thought.
Building on a unique idea, EPFL scientists have developed a cost-effective new method for converting and storing solar energy into hydrogen.
This rich view of an array of colorful stars and gas was captured by the Wide Field Imager camera, on the MPG/ESO 2.2-meter telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile. It shows a young open cluster of stars known as NGC 2367, an infant stellar grouping that lies at the center of an immense and ancient structure on the margins of the Milky Way.
