Hope against disease targeting children
A research team led by HSCI principal faculty member Lee Rubin uncovered molecular changes that explain, at least in part, why motor neurons rather than others are affected by the illness. Unlike ALS and other neurodegenerative diseases, which tend to manifest later in life, SMA strikes infants. Unlike ALS, SMA is a genetic disorder that causes a range of outcomes, with the milder form leaving some children confined to wheelchairs, and the more severe form causing paralysis and death before the second birthday.

3-D printing revives Bronze Age music
An archaeologist has 3-D printed a replica of an Iron Age artifact to revive a rich musical culture in ancient Ireland. Billy Ó Foghlú, from the Australian National University, has found evidence that the artifact may have been a mouthpiece from an Iron Age horn and not a spear-butt as previously thought. (2015-09-02)

'Authenticity' in Mexican restaurants depends on views of managers and patrons
According to a new University of Missouri study, whether or not a Mexican restaurant is considered 'authentic' is completely subjective; yet, authentic Mexican restaurants, while symbolizing boundaries between private cultural and ethnic customs, also function as sites for public display of ethnic and cultural identities. Researchers add that Mexican-American restaurants, while claiming authenticity, may be leading to the assimilation of Mexican culture into the American lifestyle, which could have implications for future immigration policy changes.
