diagrams of the human cortex by hand based on differences in cellular architecture that he could see under a microscope For more than a century scientists have continued using those maps as well as those of neuroanatomists that followed in Brodmann’s footsteps Now neuroscientists have created a long-overdue update for those early diagrams using anatomical and functional brain data from the Human Connectome Project—a large-scale digitized effort to map the brain’s functions and structures from hundreds of human samples Previous attempts at mapping the cortex—the wrinkly outermost layers of the brain responsible for sensory and motor processing language and reasoning—have had mixed results because some were based on small samples and others focused on just one aspect of brain structure or function To create a more detailed map the team looked at four measures of structure and function including the thickness and number of folds in the cortex and what activity different regions displayed in a functional magnetic resonance imaging scanner during a given task They gathered their data from 210 healthy adults and then trained a machine-learning algorithm to detect distinct regional “fingerprints” The program defined 180 distinct areas including nearly 100 that have never been described before the scientists report today in Nature The sharper multilayered map will allow for more detailed comparisons between humans and other primates shedding light on how our brains evolved the scientists say It could also prove a boon to neurosurgeons as they decide where to insert their scalpelsBy: PTI | Updated: April 4 2017 6:11 pm For two decades astronomers and theoretical physicists have speculated on the nature of dark energy but it remains an unsolved mystery (Image for representation Source: NASA) Related News The elusive dark energy thought to make up 68 per cent of the universe may not exist at all scientists have claimed They believe that standard models of the universe fail to take account of its changing structure but that once this is done the need for dark energy disappears From the 1920s mapping the velocities of galaxies led scientists to conclude that the whole universe is expanding and that it began life as a vanishingly small point In the second half of the twentieth century astronomers found evidence for unseen ‘dark’ matter by observing that something extra was needed to explain the motion of stars within galaxies Dark matter is now thought to make up 27 per cent of the content of universe (in contrast ‘ordinary’ matter amounts to only five per cent) Observations of the explosions of white dwarf stars in binary systems in the 1990s led scientists to the conclusion that a third component dark energy made up 68 per cent of the cosmos and is responsible for driving an acceleration in the expansion of the universe In the new work researchers led by PhD student Gabor Racz of Eotvos Lorand University in Hungary question the existence of dark energy and suggest an alternative explanation They argue that conventional models of cosmology (the study of the origin and evolution of the universe) rely on approximations that ignore its structure and where matter is assumed to have a uniform density Also Read:Dark matter lost since birth of universe discovered In practice normal and dark matter fill the universe with a foam-like structure where galaxies are located on the thin walls between bubbles and are grouped into superclusters The insides of the bubbles are in contrast almost empty of both kinds of matter Using a computer simulation to model the effect of gravity on the distribution of millions of particles of dark matter scientists reconstructed the evolution of the universe Unlike conventional simulations with a smoothly expanding universe taking the structure into account led to a model where different regions expand at different rates The average expansion rate though is consistent with present observations which suggest an overall acceleration “Our findings rely on a mathematical conjecture which permits the differential expansion of space consistent with general relativity and they show how the formation of complex structures of matter affects the expansion” researchers said “These issues were previously swept under the rug but taking them into account can explain the acceleration without the need for dark energy” they said If this finding is upheld it could have a significant impact on models of the universe and the direction of research in physics For the past 20 years

this shift can be tracked in Yellowstone’s recovering vegetation they say But others have questioned just how fearful Yellowstone’s elk are saying that it’s hard to tease out wolves’ impacts on the ecosystem from other factors such as climate change The new study examines the ecology of fear in an ecosystem half a world away Tasmanian devils were once numerous in Tasmania and some surrounding islands but have been devastated by an aggressive transmissible cancer and are now endangered In some mainland areas the devils have declined by 95% So Tracey Hollings a wildlife biologist at the University of Tasmania in Hobart Australia set out to explore the devils’ effects on one of their major prey species: the common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) As a control she used an island where the devils were absent at the time of her study (they have since been introduced there)—something not possible in Yellowstone a one-of-a-kind large terrestrial ecosystem “Possums are arboreal and eat eucalyptus leaves” Hollings says “but they also come to the ground at night to eat fruits and seeds” sometimes dining in agricultural fields and gardens Hollings and her colleagues set out ground feeders stocked with raisins at 18 sites on mainland Tasmania where devils still roam and six sites on nearby Maria Island which was devil-free until 2012 (when a devil sanctuary was established there) The researchers compared the possums’ behavior in areas where devils had declined by 95% with areas with less disease and fewer devil deaths For possums coming down from the safety of the trees (devils aren’t the best climbers) to forage on the ground is a risky endeavor “Devils pounce on possums that are on the ground” Hollings says “so possums prefer open areas” with few bushes where devils can hide So when a possum discovers a nutritious treat—such as a container of 100 raisins—on the ground it must decide whether the reward is worth the risk The scientists made the choice more difficult by mixing pebbles with the raisins and using containers that the animals could only fit their head or paw into Thus if a possum wanted to eat raisins it had to stay put and sort carefully among the stones for the treats For 4 nights in a row the team placed the containers at “safe” sites with an escape tree nearby; and at “risky” sites where the nearest tree was 5 to 12 meters away In the morning they counted the remaining raisins and collected hair samples from sticky tape hair traps (Animals other than possums rarely took more than 25% of the food) The scientists’ subsequent analysis showed that the possums in areas where devils were few rapidly lost their fear of being attacked These possums’ behaviors were “almost equivalent to those on Maria Island” where there were no devils Hollings says “They foraged longer and further away from escape trees” They were also much faster at detecting the containers than possums in areas with devils the team reports online today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B As predators dwindle over time prey numbers boom as elk did in Yellowstone after wolves and cougars were exterminated Hollings says But in this case she’s not sure of the effects on possum numbers partly because people heavily cull them and feral cats owls and other smaller predators also kill them But the study shows that the loss of the devils has already had a behavioral effect: The possums have most certainly lost their fear of being attacked by their natural apex predator That loss may be a “warning” that Tasmania’s ecosystem is now facing major changes Hollings says from the possums feeding heavily on vegetation they may have rarely sampled before Indeed the effects of such a loss of fear “can be stronger than the effects of the loss of direct predation” says William Ripple an ecologist at Oregon State University Corvallis who was not involved in the study Laundré agrees “This has to have some consequence to the ecosystem; not just in terms of numbers of possums but in how they use the landscape [The study] is a good demonstration of that shift” The study should also serve as a wake-up call about how quickly prey animals’ behaviors can change notes Oswald Schmitz a population ecologist at Yale University The possums altered their feeding behaviors “in less than a decade”—a rapid change predicted by foraging theory but that had not been previously demonstrated he saysWritten by Stuti Shukla | Mumbai | Published: January 18 2010 5:52 am Related News Four days after a governor-appointed committee shortlisted five candidates for the post of vice-chancellor of Mumbai Universitya city-based NGO has challenged the nominations The NGO has sent a legal notice to Governor SC Jamirthe Chancellor of the University and Chief Minister Ashok Chavan Alsothe NGO has said that if the current nominations to the post are not scrapped it will file a public interest litigation The Forum for Fairness in Education termed the process of short-listing of candidates illegal and asked for the procedure to be carried out again According to the Maharashtra Universities Actthere are certain educational qualificationsskills and experience that are required for a person to be nominated to the post The present shortlisted candidates do not hold the required qualifications and experience?
