The science of procrastination in an age of information overload - The Keene Sentinel

The Keene Sentinel
The tendency to procrastinate has been linked to both genetics and the neurobiology of the brain. People are more likely to procrastinate if they are young and single (including divorced and separated). So are those with a Y chromosome, which could ...

Neurobiology: Individuality sniffed out in flies -
The discovery that certain neurons' odour responses differ between individual fruit flies, but are consistent across the hemispheres of each fly's brain, indicates that sensory processing depends on an individual's experience. Organisms process sensory ...

Brain-eaters prove that human evolution is continuing - Jakarta Post

Jakarta Post
A scientist quoted in the report said that the finding, because it was about mutations leading to survival, proved that human evolution was continuing at high speed. Amazing thought. If that's true, it can only be a matter of time before mothers have ...

Mammalian Histology-B408
United States

Mammalian Histology-B408, Department of Biological Sciences, University of Delaware. Mammalian Histology (B408) is taught in the fall semester annually and is one of the courses required for the Medical Scholars Program with the Jefferson Medical College. Consequently, it is taught at a comprehensive level and concentrates heavily on human tissues and organ systems. A strong component of this course is tissue structure at the ultrastructural leve
