Undersea Research Center To Look For Sunken Whaling Ships
Researchers at the West Coast and Polar Regions Undersea Research Center, the U.S. Coast Guard, and NASA will use remotely operated vehicles to locate whaling ships that sank in 1871 off the north coast of Alaska. Video cameras like those used on the NASA Mars Lander will be used to document the condition of the vessels. (1998-08-08)

Damaged Minds
Scientists in Baltimore, Maryland, have found that some stunted regions of the brain may be to blame for the most severe symptoms of autism, while other undersized regions may cause the milder symptoms often suffered by close relatives of autistics. (1998-06-10)

40% Of Developing World Infants Stunted
Almost 40 percent, or about 184 million, of the developing world's children under 5 outside of China have stunted growth, reports a Cornell University nutritionist and statistician. Although stunting is declining by about .5 of a percentage point each year, more than half the children in some regions of the developing world, such as Southeast Asia, have severe growth deficits, says Edward Frongillo, associate professor of nutritional sciences at Cornell.

Global Seismic Network Now Extends To The Deep Oceans
This month, scientists with the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) will install one of many planned Geophysical Ocean Bottom Observatories (GOBO), in which a permanent seismograph station will be established on the sea floor for monitoring earthquake activity. ODP is funded in large part by the National Science Foundation (NSF). (1998-04-28)

The Earth As A Habitable System: Robust Or Fragile?
The Earth is facing global threats to a point never experienced before. Will we, as human beings, be able to react in time to these challenges and revert these processes? How habitable will the Earth be in the coming decades? A stimulating discussion on the nature of earth as a habitable system will close the GCTE/LUCC conference held in Barcelona, March 14-18, 1998.

NICHD-Funded Researchers Map Physical Basis Of Dyslexia
A Yale research team funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) has used sophisticated brain imaging technology to show that there is decreased functioning during certain reading tasks in certain brain regions of individuals with the most common form of dyslexia. (1998-03-02)

Recovery From Mass Extinction Is Unexpectedly Diverse
A study by University of Chicago paleontologist David Jablonski shows that recoveries from mass extinctions differ widely from one geographical region to another, even though the extinction intensities and patterns are more or less the same everywhere. Results are published in the Friday, February 27, issue of the journal Science. (1998-02-27)

How They Know Where They're Going: New Research On Cabbies Shows That The Brain's Right Hippocampus Is Key For Navigation
Immediate left on Puddledock, right on Queen Victoria Street, left on Friday Street. New research for the first time shows through systematic brain imaging tests on London taxi drivers that a human's ability to remember the route to a destination requires the right hippocampus of the brain.

Portland Researchers Locate Genes Associated With A Predisposition To Physical Dependence On Alcohol
Oregon researchers led by Kari Buck, Ph.D., have mapped three gene regions in mice that influence susceptibility to physicial dependence on alcohol. Their finding appear in the May 15, 1997 issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.Buck's team found that genes on mouse chromosomes 1,4, and 11 lead to an increased risk for physical dependence on alcohol (1997-05-15)

Urbanized Watersheds More Sensitive To Climate Change
A regional investigation of stream flow in urbanized areas could help planners, hydrologists and climate modelers decipher future effects of increased precipitation and temperatures, according to a Penn State researcher. (1996-12-20)

MSX Infrared Observations Of The Galactic Center
The Science Team for the Midcourse Space Experiment (MSX) satellite has released the highest resolution mid-infrared maps of the central region of our Milky Way galaxy. The resolution is about 15 times better than the previous best infrared observationstaken by the IRAS satellite. (1996-10-04)
