Ebola cure confirmed in monkeys

Winnipeg - Scientists have confirmed that the new Ebola cure used to save two American doctors is 100 percent effective in monkeys.

When did Neanderthals become extinct?

By analyzing ancient remains across Europe, a team led by investigators have pinpointed the timing the Neanderthals’ extinction to between 39,000 and 41,000 years ago.

Ancient, Neanderthal-like skulls discovered

Seventeen skulls excavated from Spain’s Sima de los Huesos and thought to be around 430,000 years old are the oldest specimens with Neanderthal features uncovered to date.

Brains vs brawn, how early humans developed

Research suggests that early humans made an evolutionary trade-off, giving up muscular strength to fuel bigger brains. This is not the view, however, shared by all biologists.

What gave modern humans an advantage over Neanderthals?

Modern humans (Homo sapiens) lived alongside Neanderthals. What was it in the genetic makeup of humans that gave them the advantage to survive, whilst Neanderthals did not?

Toxic nanoparticles could be entering human food supply

Concerns have been expressed about the use of silver nanoparticles as a pesticide for farming, which could lead to toxic particles entering the food chain.

New technique to create transparent brains

Researchers have developed a solution that turns tissues transparent. It is hoped that the technique will be used to view neuronal circuits in the human brain, as part of the examination of conditions like Alzheimer's disease.

Humans getting dumber over the years?

Human IQ is on a decline since the Victorian era, and humans today are probably getting dumber over the years, a new study suggests

Video: Chimps show better working memory skills than humans

Researchers have found that chimps have a superior short term memory than humans in symbolic representation tests. This is significant because short term memory skills are an important element in IQ tests that purportedly measure "intelligence."

New study says modern humans, not Ice Age, killed Neanderthals

New evidence in the longstanding debate over what caused extinction of Neanderthals suggests that competition with early members of modern human species who migrated from Africa and not major climate changes caused extinction of Neanderthals.

New study claims humans evolved from primitive species of shark

A new study says all jawed vertebrates, including humans, evolved from a species of shark that lived about 300 million years ago. Scientists came to the conclusion after analysis of a 290-million-year-old fossil braincase.

Op-Ed: Recent science discoveries confirm Neanderthal humanity

For many years, Neanderthal people were falsely portrayed as brutish and primitive ape-men, but with every new science discovery, anthropologists learn that Neanderthals were completely human.

New evidence shows that humans mastered fire 1 million years ago

A new discovery in South Africa has turned up evidence that our ancestors had a grasp on how to use fire much earlier than previously thought.

How birds explain irrational decisions

Researchers studied decision-making by European starlings. The research may help figure out why humans and animals exhibit irrational decisions.

Artificial blood for humans developed from pre-historic mammoths

Blood from pre-historic woolly mammoths is now helping scientists advance modern medical procedures. New artificial blood for humans will be based on the reduction of each patient's body temperature.

Gadgets to outnumber humans by 2015

A recent report estimates that within four years the amount of gadgets connected to the Internet will be twice the world's population.

Malaria originated in gorillas and not chimpanzees: Study

Researchers have discovered that the most common form of human malaria—Plasmodium falciparum—may have originated in western lowland gorillas. The closest genetic match between malaria that infects humans and one that infects gorillas has been found.

Evidence for interbreeding with Neanderthals, only Africans pure

Leipzig - An international team of scientists have successfully sequenced the Neanderthal genome, and the evidence shows that humans in Europe, Asia and Papua New Guinea carry Neanderthal genes - while African peoples are 100 percent human.

New evidence suggests megafauna no match for humans

Claims are being made by researchers, who say that there is new evidence, that humans were actually responsible for the extinction of Australia's megafauna.

Animals Share Morals With Humans

It's often been suggested what sets humans apart from other animals is the ability to have morals. That theory is being disputed by some scientists that have observed humans are not alone in morals.

Is the Dead Sea Dying?

A research team from the University of Technology in Darmstadt, Germany reports the water levels in the Dead Sea – the deepest point on Earth – are dropping at an alarming rate with serious environmental consequence.

Op-Ed: The War Of Intolerance That Will Not End

Can the world expect a more peaceful 2009? If the past week is any indicator then the answer is no, and it's about to get worse. It's the way of man to lean towards violence instead of peace.

Kangaroos are genetically similar to humans

After completing a genetic map of kangaroos, Australian researchers have found kangaroos share many of the same genes with humans, and some are even arranged in the same order as human genes.

Today is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

Through resolution 47/196 adopted on 22 December 1992, the General Assembly declared 17 October as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

Human-caused Changes In Winds Result in Drier, Warmer Springs In US Southwest

Human-driven changes in the westerly winds are bringing hotter and drier springs to the American Southwest, according to new research from The University of Arizona in Tucson.

New Bacterial Species Found In Human Mouth

A new species of bacteria has been discovered in the human mouth. This discovery could help scientists understand tooth decay and gum disease and may lead to better treatments.

Study: Humans took down neanderthals

Neanderthals became extinct about 30,000 years ago, a study suggests that it may well be us humans who wiped them out.

Schizophrenia: Costly By-product Of Human Brain Evolution

Research published today in BioMed Central's open access journal Genome Biology adds weight to the theory that schizophrenia is a costly by-product of human brain evolution.

Human Influences Challenge Penguin Populations

Warming in the Antarctic, as well as commercial fishing, mining, and oil and gas development at lower latitudes, has led to declines in many penguin species.

Study: Humans Have Been Messing with Mother Nature for 11,000 Years

As global warming alarmism comes to its head, some scientists have avoided the hype and have done studies all their own. One study suggests that global warming caused by humans dates back 11,000 years and saved the world from an Ice Age.

This finding comes from a recent study that revealed the closest genetic match between malaria that infects humans and malaria that infects gorillas. The result contradicts previous studies that point to chimpanzees as the potential reservoir of malignant malaria.
