Brain Activity Linked to Stress Changes Chemical Codes

University of California San Diego

Scientists identified light-induced electrical activity as the brain mechanism controlling chemical code switching related to stress. While studying neurotransmitter switching in rats, they found that specific neurons were responsible, with implications for imbalances underlying mental illness.

EPA’s New Requirement for Scientific Studies is An Attack on Science, Says ATS

American Thoracic Society (ATS)

In a huge blow to public health, EPA administrator Scott Pruitt announced a new rule that would only allow EPA to consider research studies for which the underlying data are available to the public, thus severely limiting the number of scientific studies that the EPA can use in setting health standards. The new requirements blocking the use of most scientific studies will help big polluters avoid regulations that protect human health.

Genetic Transcription ‘Pause’ Is Focus of NASA Grant

Cornell University

Almost all forms of animal life – from fruit flies to butterflies to mammals – contain a pause in transcription, a step that appears to allow the transcription machinery to take a break to fine-tune its copying process. No one knows when this pause originated in the evolution of life. Charles Danko, assistant professor of genetics and molecular biology at the Cornell University Baker Institute for Animal Health, will investigate with a three-year, $790,000 grant from NASA’s Exobiology program.
