Neurobiologists discover important characteristics of the motion detector in the fly brain - Phys.Org


Phys.Org
Using the brain of the fruit fly Drosophila as a model, scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology study how the brain extracts this essential motion information. They have now described in detail the cells that enable downstream neurons ...

Our Voice: Keep close watch on Eagle Mountain hydropower project - The Desert Sun


The Desert Sun
Assuming it is built, close scrutiny of the project's effects on the surrounding area via methods such as continuous monitoring of nearby wells and diligent, ongoing surveys of flora and fauna should be put in place with a clear structure to mitigate ...
