A new publication examines how population growth and urbanization will reduce croplands, potentially destabilize governments and instigate social conflict. Yale Professor Karen Seto, a coauthor of the international study, studies urbanization and the changing global landscape.
Researchers led by Professor Richard Carson, Director of the Yale PET Center, have found a link between the hormone corticosterone and stress-related behavior in captured wild birds. The study opens up new questions about how wild animals adapt to captivity and its stresses.
This recently discovered microprotein has the ability to remove excess genetic material in cells. Researchers are only beginning to explore its potential.
A special type of memory T cell could be used as an immunotherapy tool to efficiently eliminate tumors.
Using a technique called optogenetics, researchers at Yale have identified the region of the brain critical for predatory hunting. At the switch of a button, the researchers manipulated when the docile mice transformed into voracious hunters.
Up until recently, very little has been understood about fat cell growth and maintenance. A new Yale study shines some light on the molecular mechanisms behind these processes, paving the way for future research.
Yale researchers are using fractals to decode the signals planets leave in their star’s light. The answer to life, the universe, and everything? Might well be hidden in the noise.
