*  PET Scan of Brain Metabolism in Relation to Age and Disease - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
The Brain Physiology and Metabolism Section (BPMS) of the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the Clinical Neuroscience Program (CNP) of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) propose to study regional brain phospholipid metabolism in young and old normal volunteers and in patients with Alzheimer disease. The method to be employed, developed from animal studies, involves the intravenous injection of a radiolabeled polyunsaturated fatty acid, [11C]arachidonic acid and measuring regional brain radioactivity using positron emission tomography (PET). A mathematical model is used to calculate regional brain incorporation coefficients k* of [11C]arachidonate into brain. These reflect brain signal transduction and membrane turnover involving phospholipids and the signal transduction and membrane turnover involving phospholipids and the activation of the enzyme, phospholipase A2. PET also will be used in the same subjects to measure regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF), a ...

*  There are Two Shoal Bays in Anguilla!
Shoal Bay East is on the north side, toward the east end of the island. It is a popular tourism destination with a fine beach, great snorkeling if you've never been out of New Jersey before, restaurants, beach bars and live music on Sundays. "Shoal" means reefs. Avoid this bay unless you have a good chart and full confidence in your piloting ability. Or were born here.. Shoal Bay West faces St. Martin near the west end of the island. The plan to dredge Gull Pond is on hold indefinitely. Buying a slip here may not prove to be a good investment. There are no marinas in Anguilla. Some of us hope for them, some of us hope that our pigs will fly. None of these wishes have been realised but I don't know what may happen tomorrow.. Neither Shoal Bay is a port of entry.. Our thanks to Bob Conrich of Anguilla for sorting out this tangle for us.. ...

*  Certhionyx variegatus - Wikipedia
El mielero pío (Certhionyx variegatus)[2]​ es una especie de ave paseriforme de la familia Meliphagidae endémica de Australia. Posee un largo pico curvo y una pequeña mancha azul claro de piel expuesta bajo el ojo que en los machos tiene forma de semicírculo y en las hembras y ejemplares juveniles forma de arco. Los machos son negros y blancos; la cabeza, partes superiores y cuello son negros, mientras que las partes inferiores, su obispillo y parte superior de la cola son blancas. Las alas son negras con una franja blanca, y la cola posee su extremo negro. El dorso de las hembras es pardo, con zona baja del pico grisácea, su pecho es blancuzco con pintas marrón oscuro, partes inferiores blancas y bandas blancas a lo largo de los bordes de las plumas de las secundarias. El adulto pesa unos 27 gramos, y mide entre 15 a 20 cm de largo, y sus alas miden de 25 a 29 cm. de envergadura (eds Higgins et al. 2001). El ala larga y puntuda que caracteriza a Certhionyx variegatus le permite volar ...

*  Fish Attracted To Ginger Gene - Redorbit
There may be plenty of fish in the sea but the medaka knows what it likes. A new study published in the open access journal BMC Biology shows how a single gene mutation that turns Japanese Killifish a drab grey color renders them significantly less attractive to more colorful members of the opposite sex.. The medaka, found commonly in Southeast Asia, can be observed in a wide range of colors; from brown, to more uncommon orange and grey variations. Shoji Fukamachi led a team of researchers from the University of Konstanz, Germany and the University of Tokyo, who studied the effects of alterations in a color-determining gene on mating preferences of the fish.. According to Fukamachi "We observed that the grey medaka were often rejected in favor of their brown or orange rivals. This is the first demonstration of a single gene that can change both secondary sexual characteristics and mating preferences".. The greys, however, need not be completely despondent at these findings, as the study also ...

*  Species at Risk Public Registry - Recovery Strategy for the Copper Redhorse (Moxostoma hubbsi) in Canada
The competent minister for the Copper Redhorse under the Species at Risk Act (SARA) is the minister of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). Because this species makes use of the Vianney-Legendre fish ladder, the minister responsible for the Parks Canada Agency (Parks Canada) is the competent minister for individuals located in the ladder. Section 37 of SARA requires the competent minister to prepare recovery strategies for listed extirpated, endangered or threatened species. The Copper Redhorse was listed as endangered under SARA in December 2007. Fisheries and Oceans Canada - Quebec Region led the development of this recovery strategy in close collaboration with the Copper Redhorse Recovery Team. This strategy meets SARA requirements in terms of content and process (Sections 39-41). The successful recovery of the Copper Redhorse will depend on the commitment and cooperation of the many concerned parties who will participate in the implementation of the recommendations put forward in this strategy.

*  Functional morphology of feeding in the scale-eating specialist Catoprion mento | Journal of Experimental Biology
A diet of scales and the ability to remove them from other fishes are derived features in Catoprion. Phylogenetic hypotheses for the Serrasalminae (Machado-Allison, 1982; Orti et al., 1996) suggest that a largely herbivorous diet of seeds, leaves and aquatic vegetation is primitive for the subfamily. Ancestral serrasalmines have the ability to both generate effective suction that is used for prey capture and intra-oral transport of food to the esophagus and to produce a forceful bite (Janovetz, 2001). Many aspects of the scale-feeding strike in Catoprion differ from capture of the other two prey items used in this study as well as previously reported feeding behaviors in other fishes. Scale feeding in Catoprion is, to date, the most extreme example of what has been described in the literature as `ram feeding' (Liem, 1980a; Norton and Brainerd, 1993). Ram and suction feeding are considered as two ends of a continuum in one axis of prey capture that is defined by the relative movements of the ...

"We specifically used titanium because of its range of colours and its shimmering quality, meaning that the Shoal's appearance constantly changes in response to varying light conditions." ...

Total deprivation of food resulted in very gradual loss of weight, which, if maintained, would result in 4 days of feeding being sufficient to sustain the animal for periods of 6 to 9 months. ...
