Brain folding related to surface area and thickness, not number of neurons
(Medical Xpress)—A pair of researchers with Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro has found that the degree of folding of mammalian brains follows a simple mathematical relationship. In their paper published in the journal Science, Bruno Mota and Suzana Herculano-Houzel describe how they came up with the math and its implications regarding the developmental and evolutionary origins of brain folding. George Striedter and Shyam Srinivasan with the University of California offer a Commentary piece on the work done by the duo in the same journal issue.

Supercharging stem cells to create new therapies
A new method for culturing stem cells has been developed, which sees the highly therapeutic cells grow faster and stronger. Stem cell therapy is showing promising signs for transplant patients, and the IL-17 treated stem cells should be even more effective at preventing and treating inflammation in transplant recipients -- particularly controlling rejection in transplant patients.

'Invisible' protein structure explains the power of enzymes
(Umea University) A research group at Umeå University in Sweden has managed to capture and describe a protein structure that, until now, has been impossible to study. The discovery lays the base for developing designed enzymes as catalysts to new chemical reactions for instance in biotechnological applications. The result of the study is published in the journal Nature Communications.

Early exposure to cat urine makes mice less likely to escape from cats
(Society for Experimental Biology) Mice that are exposed to the powerful smell of cat urine early in life do not escape from cats later in life. Researchers at the A. N. Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution, Russia, have discovered that mice that smell cat urine early in life, do not avoid the same odor, and therefore do not escape from their feline predators, later in life.
