Microgravity Affects Biological Processes Like Circadian Rhythms And Microbiomes

Researchers show that space will affect our internal biology, NASA is sending a team of rodent astronauts to space. On the next resupply mission to the International Space Station, the Space X Dragon will be bringing coffee, a robot, and a set of rodent passengers to help scientists understand biology in space. The laboratory mice will help researchers study how zero-gravity affects biological processes like circadian rhythms and microbiomes.

Pairing Of Two Proteins Enables Memory Coding

A new study shows that the brain's ability to rapidly form memories of new places depends on the timely interaction of two proteins: FMRP and neurogranin. Entering an unfamiliar place provides the chance to make a new memory. A new study at MIT's Picower Institute for Learning and Memory shows how two proteins spring into action to ensure that a memory is encoded within minutes.
