How cranberries could improve memory and ward off dementia
Researchers have found that eating cranberries could improve memory, ward off dementia, and reduce ‘bad’ cholesterol. The research team studied the benefits of consuming the equivalent of a cup of cranberries a day among 50 to 80-year-olds. They hope that their findings could have implications for the prevention of neurodegenerative

Could the Tiny Zebrafish Teach Us to Cure Blindness?
By learning how zebrafish regenerate their retinas, researchers could figure out how to help humans do the same. Zebrafish are only a few centimeters long, but they’ve got some supersized powers. When their hearts or brains are damaged, they regenerate. When their fins are cut off, they grow back. When

Mutant fish may explain how animals went from sea to land
The researchers were able to create extra bones in the fin by altering a single gene. This mutation marks a fundamental step in our understanding of the evolution of fins in limbs similar to ours. Scientists at Harvard University have conceived zebrafish, as seen in the photo below, which show

Acid-spitting ants invade the southern United States
Crazy ants are native to South America. However, over the last twenty years, the southern United States has gradually been invaded. Spitting acid at their targets, they devastate everything in their path. How can an insect that measures just a few millimeters cause so much damage to the ecosystem? The

Ocean water samples yield treasure trove of RNA virus data Study of organisms in the sea identifies 5,500 new species
Ocean water samples collected around the world have yielded a treasure trove of new data about RNA viruses, expanding ecological research possibilities and reshaping our understanding of how these small but significant submicroscopic particles evolved. Ocean water samples collected around the world have yielded a treasure trove of new data

Study shows how 1.5°C temperature rise can cause significant changes in coastal species
As COP26 leaders gather in the UK, new research shows a temperature increase of around 1.5°C — just under the maximum target agreed at the COP23 Paris meeting in 2017 — can have a marked impact on algae and animal species living on our coastlines. A temperature increase of around
