Novel therapeutic approach against genetic forms of Schizophrenia
Research led by the University of Glasgow has made a breakthrough in developing a possible future treatment of schizophrenia and related psychiatric conditions. Studies currently show that people with a hereditary form of schizophrenia, or a subset of the general schizophrenic population, are deficient in the brain protein DISC1, an important multi-function ‘scaffolding' protein vital to key brain functions.

Bacteria passed between generations benefit you more than others
When bacteria are passed vertically, straight from mother to offspring, they tend to be much better for their hosts than if they are transmitted via the environment (horizontally). e.g. a light-producing bacteria that helps the squid defend against predators. Image credit: C. Frazee, and contributed by M. McFall-Ngai Bacteria passed straight to children have more healthcare benefits than if they are transmitted via the surrounding environment, new Oxford University research reveals.

European cooperation could provide more stable wind power
Europe could make much better use of its wind resources if capacity was spread out instead of being concentrated around the North Sea. This is the conclusion reached by a group of energy and climate researchers at ETH Zürich and Imperial College London, who for the first time have combined a long-term analysis of predominant weather patterns with Europe-wide wind electricity generation data.

Why T. Rex and elephants lumber behind cheetahs
Why T. Rex and elephants lumber behind cheetahs
Scientists have discovered why the largest animals are not the fastest, and have used a model to predict the speed of extinct animals like dinosaurs. As animals get larger, they get faster - but only up to a point. A rabbit could beat a mouse in a race, just as a mouse could beat a beetle. But nothing beats a cheetah on land, even though there are plenty of larger animals like elephants.

Concerns over side effects of statins stopping stroke survivors taking medication
Negative media coverage of the side effects associated with taking statins, and patients' own experiences of taking the drugs, are among the reasons cited by stroke survivors and their carers for stopping taking potentially life-saving drugs, according to research published today. These findings have highlighted the need for an open, honest dialogue between patients and/or their carers, and healthcare professionals Anna De Simoni Individuals who have had a stroke are at risk of a second stroke, which carries a greater risk of disability and death than first time strokes.

Buried alive: Aquatic plants survive in ‘ghost ponds’ under agricultural fields
Aquatic plants in ‘ghost ponds' are able to survive more than 100 years buried beneath cropped agricultural fields, according to new UCL research. Ghost ponds are abundant across many agricultural regions, often visible as damp depressions, areas of poor crop cover, or changes in soil colour. Many UK ponds were filled-in during agricultural land intensification that took place after the 1950s.
