A Brain Parasite Might Be Making Us Angrier - Newsy
 
02:07
Transcript: More and more studies are hinting that our brains might not be completely our own. The parasite Toxoplasma gondii, Toxo for short, may be changing human behavior — perhaps even making us angrier and more aggressive. Toxo is one of those frightening parasites capable of controlling its hosts. It reproduces in the stomachs of cats, and it's always trying to get back inside one. So when an animal, usually a mouse or rat, becomes infected through contact with cat poop, the parasite gets into the rodent's brain and literally rewires it. Basically, it makes its host fall in love with cats so it'll go find one and get eaten. Humans can contract the parasite, too, through eating unwashed vegetables or undercooked meat. And, obviously, through cat poop. But while it can pose problems for pregnant women or people with weakened immune systems, it's generally not considered a threat to human health. That's lucky because Toxo is incredibly common. Around a third of people in the world and more than 1 in 5 in the U.S. are infected, and the vast majority never suffer any ill effects. At least, that's what we thought. Over the past decade, studies have linked Toxo to higher rates of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, suicide attempts, risk taking, impulsiveness and now, aggression. A recent study found people with the parasite score higher on anger and aggression tests, and people with anger disorders are twice as likely to have the parasite than you'd expect from chance alone. What does all of this mean? Well, it's too early to say. None of the studies so far are considered proof that Toxo is driving changes in human behavior. Its effects might be overhyped due to its creepiness. But because it's so common, if infection really does raise the risk of mental illness even slightly, that could translate to tens of millions of cases.

Meet The Opah, The First Known Warm-Blooded Fish
 
01:51
The Opah, or moonfish, lives deep below the ocean's surface and uses its unique features to generate and store heat. Follow Jay Strubberg: http://www.twitter.com/JayStrubberg See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: Researchers say they've discovered the first known fully warm-blooded fish. It's called the Opah, or moonfish, and it lives in cold environments deep below the ocean's surface. Scientists say the Opah generates heat by constantly flapping its pectoral fins. (Video via Science) It then uses fatty tissue to help trap the heat and special blood vessels to spread the warmth throughout its large, disc-like body. Fish, of course, are generally thought to be cold-blooded animals, so researchers say this gives the Opah a "competitive edge" over some of its aquatic cousins in more frigid waters. And, sure, the orange-and-silver fish might look pretty innocent, but researcher Nicholas Wegner of the the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says the opah is actually quite the aggressor. "Before this discovery I was under the impression this was a slow-moving fish, like most other fish in cold environments. But because it can warm its body, it turns out to be a very active predator that chases down agile prey like squid and can migrate long distances," Wegner said. Other fish, like tuna and some sharks, can also generate heat, but their bodies can only handle short periods in the cold before they have to retreat to warmer waters. (Video via National Geographic) The Opah can keep its body warm for long periods of time, so it doesn't have to worry about that as much. But despite what seems like a pretty cool discovery, at least one scientist was skeptical. At least at how it's labeled, anyway. The study refers to the Opah as a fish with "whole-body endothermy" or, basically, entirely warm-blooded. But an associate professor of biology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth is quoted in The Washington Post saying that's a bit misleading. He says the opah is warm for the most part, but, "It gets cold as you go back into the body or back into the tail or as you go up or down," so calling it a "whole-body" warm-blooded fish might be a stretch. The findings from the Opah study are published in the journal Science.

Synthetic Life Has Been Streamlined And Is Ready To Be Put To Work - Newsy
 
02:18
Transcript: In 2010, researchers at the J. Craig Venter Institute announced they'd created a bacteria that runs entirely on lab-made DNA — the world's first synthetic life-form. More than five years later later, they've streamlined, stripped down and organized that life-form, and are ready to turn it into a tiny factory. The team's 2010 announcement made headlines around the world. "This is the first self-replicating species that we've had on the planet whose parent is a computer," Venter said. But creating a life-form entirely programmed by humans was also seen as kind of scary. "This has enormous promise and enormous peril," said Paul Wolpe of the Emory Center for Ethics. "This story reminds me of 'Jurassic Park,' when all the dinosaurs got out and ran amok," Fox News's Jenna Lee said. But the process of making DNA in a lab has only gotten easier since then. Some of those same researchers now sell DNA-printing machines. The plan, though, has always been to strip down a genome to its bare essentials, cutting out every piece of unnecessary DNA. That would serve two goals: helping scientists learn more about how life works and taking the first steps to build custom bacteria. On the first point, it turns out we don't know life nearly as well as we thought. A viable life-form needs at least 473 genes. That's way higher than scientists predicted, and they still aren't sure what a third of those genes do. The team says even if this research only shows us how little we know, it would still be worth it. But they don't intend to stop there. They want to put this streamlined life-form to work. Bacteria are great at taking one compound and turning it into another. They're little chemistry labs, and many scientists believe using carefully built bacteria can solve a lot of the world's problems. Bacteria can turn switch grass into biofuel as easily as brewing beer. They create all kinds of medicines and can even generate electricity. But a stripped-down life-form can do all of that with a lot of advantages: You can make sure none of your ingredients go to waste, control mutations and, most importantly, design the genome from scratch to do exactly what you want. The researchers also said their stripped-down bacteria can give scientists clues to the origins of life. It apparently behaves how scientists think some of the world's first life-forms did.

Prime Numbers May Not Be As Random As We Thought, And Why It Matters - Newsy
 
01:24
Two Stanford University mathematicians found that the ending digits of prime numbers are actually less likely to repeat in the next prime number. Transcript: Prime numbers may not be as random as mathematicians previously thought –– a discovery that could eventually have real effects in fields like cryptography or cybersecurity. A quick math refresher: Prime numbers can only be divided by one and themselves. Two and five are examples. Start listing primes, though, and once you get past two and five, you'll see that if a number is prime, it will end in the digits 1, 3, 7 or 9. Scientists thought those four ending digits were random and had an equal chance of being the last digit of a prime number. But two Stanford mathematicians found it's not so random after all. For some reason, when analyzing the first billion prime numbers, the ending digits didn't have an equal chance of repeating themselves in the next prime number as the other three digits, making one digit easier to predict than the others. So for example, a prime number ending in 1 is less likely to be followed by another prime number ending in 1. Their work still needs to be peer-reviewed, but one of the researchers told Nature, "Every single person we've told this ends up writing their own computer program to check it for themselves." Now back to cryptography. When you purchase something online, prime numbers keep your card number safe. They've been used because their seemingly random nature made them hard to decode. Quartz reports, for now, the Stanford mathematicians' discovery doesn't change or endanger our financial security. But the researchers admit there's a lot they still don't know about their new phenomenon, and as they learn more, cryptography rules might be forced to change.

The High-Tech Tools Scientists Use To Track Wild Animals
 
01:46
A recent paper in the journal Science says high-tech tools have brought us into a "golden age" of scientific animal-tracking. Follow Sebastian Martinez: http://www.twitter.com/SebastianSings See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: Science in recent years has seen an explosion of wildlife tracking-devices that are enabling new insights and scientific breakthroughs. (Video via National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) That's the thesis of a recent paper in the journal Science, which argues tracking is essential in understanding how animals are reacting to the slew of environmental threats they face. (Video via Texas Parks and Wildlife) But different animals require different tracking devices, and as the technology develops, those devices are getting increasingly specialized. For birds and flying mammals, geolocators often take the form of a little solar-powered harness, which is fitted to the back of the animal and can weigh as little as half a gram. (Video via SongbirdSOS Productions) To collect data in the past, most of those geolocators had to be retrieved through capture, but an increasing number are able to transmit data remotely, which enables scientists to track a bird over its entire lifespan. (Video via Smithsonian National Zoological Park, Untamed Science) For large mammals, like this mountain lion, collars are the preferred tracking device. But, beyond tracking where they go, a lot of these collars can also monitor the cats' metabolism and behavior, among other things. (Video via National Science Foundation) Some trackers go even further — with one group of researchers using a miniature EEG cap to study how sloths sleep in the wilderness. Other devices let us take a more literal look at the lives of wild animals, with camera-fitted collars giving us, in this case, a bear's eye view of the wilderness. (Video via Missouri Department of Conservation) Beyond learning about animals themselves, the researchers argue these advances allow scientists to use wild animals as sensors to monitor the changing planet: (Video via World Wide Fund for Nature) "Recent examples include the monitoring of arctic temperatures and vegetation changes during climate change and documenting ocean currents, and in the future may allow for the estimation of altitudinal wind profiles based on bird flight parameters." More broadly, the researchers argue, tracking wildlife is important in understanding the unpredictable ways animals adapt to that changing planet — and a vital tool for ecology in the future.

Scientists Help A Paralyzed Man Play 'Guitar Hero' - Newsy
 
01:54
Transcript: A man with quadriplegia — paralysis of the arms and legs — has been able to regain movement in his fingers, hands and wrists thanks to a first-of-its-kind medical breakthrough. Ian Burkhart suffered a spinal cord injury in a diving accident in 2010, paralyzing him from the shoulders down. Researchers have been working with him for a few years now. Doctors implanted an electrical device into Burkhart's motor cortex — the part of the brain responsible for voluntary movement — and connected it to muscle stimulators around his arms. "Without the use of the system and the technology, Ian is not able to grasp objects. But once we connect the system and turn it on, Ian is actually able to open and close his hand. He is also able to pick up objects such as a bottle," said Chad Bouton, VP of Advanced Engineering and Technology at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. Signals from Burkhart's brain aren't able to reach his muscles on their own, but this procedure effectively bypasses the spinal cord injury to help those signals get through. Past medical advances helped humans control robotic limbs by imagining their movement, but it hasn't been possible for humans to use imagined movement to control their own anatomical limbs. Burkhart said in 2014: "Picking up a cup of water and drinking it, or brushing your teeth or feeding yourself — you know, those things. If you can do those on your own, it makes a big difference in your life." The implant and bypass have worked well enough that Burkhart is now able to play what looks like "Guitar Hero." But researchers say they have further improvements in mind. "Maybe in a few years from now, we can have a wireless system that allows patients like Ian to be able to move his hand, and his arms and his functions — his arm, and legs and overall functions — much better without having cables to connect," said Ohio State University neurological surgeon Dr. Ali Rezai.

Dog Brought In To Be Surrogate Parent To 5 Cheetah Cubs - Newsy
 
01:16
The cheetah cubs lost their mother shortly after they were born at the Cincinnati Zoo. The Australian shepherd will help the cubs learn to socialize. Transcript: An Australian shepherd has become an unexpected surrogate parent to five cheetah cubs who lost their mother. Staff at the Cincinnati Zoo performed a cesarean section on the 5-year-old cheetah mother, Willow, earlier this month after she developed complications. A team of veterinarians successfully delivered three males and two females, but the cubs require round-the-clock care due to weak immune systems. But Willow never made a full recovery after the surgery, and she passed away. That's when the zoo staff called in a dog named Blakely. He's a nursery companion who is brought in to help baby animals learn to socialize by snuggling and playing with them. Blakely also teaches his charges certain behaviors as they get older. For instance, he taught this baby takin named Dale how to jump around. TODAY reports Blakely has been brought in to help a variety of animals including wallabies, warthogs, aardvarks and even an ocelot. It's especially important that Blakely was brought in to help care for these five cheetah cubs because the species is endangered. At the most, only an estimated 12,000 cheetahs remain in existence today. Blakely will care for the five cubs throughout the eight to 12 weeks they spend in the zoo's nursery.
