New analysis suggested the iris in the eye of a mouse doesn't need the brain's help to sense light and direct the pupils to dilate or contract in response.
Mouse eyes react to light without brain’s help
Scientists have identified the molecular building blocks essential to the formation of hair-like filaments called pili, which bacteria use for a variety of functions.
Bacterial 'hair' study could pave way for new antibiotics
When a baby is born small, it's often attributed to genetic factors or maternal risk factors like poor nutrition or smoking.
Why is one twin smaller than the other?
Leading researchers have condemned attempts to change the way carbon from trees will be counted in Europe.

A motor mechanism that has been attributed primarily to early development in babies and toddlers can also help older adults improve movement accuracy, according to new research from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU).
Older adults can improve movement using same motor strategy as babies
Life is full of emotional highs and lows, ranging from enjoying an activity with a loved one and savoring a delicious meal to feeling hurt by a negative interaction with a co-worker or that recent scuffle with a family member.
