How Common is Dyscalculia?
Discussion Numerical understanding is imperative in everyday life. Even making coffee in the morning, a person considers whether she is making 1 cup or 2, and how much fluid will be in each cup. How many more days can she go without buying more coffee with the ground coffee left in the container? Other numerical skills such as telephone numbers, street addresses and locations, time and dates, and buying and selling of products and services occur all day long in people’s lives. What happens when those skills are not automatic? Dyscalculia or developmental dyscalculia (DD) is “a heterogeneous learning impairment...

Can Exercise Prevent Depression? Here ’s What the Science Says
Ask anyone who’s ever felt better after a workout, and they’ll tell you that exercise and mental health are related. Science backs up that gut feeling. Many studies have found that physical activity is linked to a lower risk of developing depression, and better outcomes for people who have it. But does exercise actually prevent depression, or are people who don’t have depression simply more likely to be active? A new study, published in JAMA Psychiatry, sheds some light on that question. Using genetic data from more than 600,000 adults enrolled in multiple genomic association studies, researchers found &l...

11,500-year-old animal bones in Jordan suggest early dogs helped humans hunt

The archaeologists suggest that the introduction of dogs as hunting aids may explain the dramatic increase of hares and other small prey in the archaeological remains at the site.

Archeological discovery yields clues to how our ancestors may have adapted to their environment
(Boston University School of Medicine) During the Stone Age ancestral humans lived with a variety of animal species along what was an area of wetlands in the middle of the Jordanian desert. The site, in the town of Azraq Basin, has been excavated and has revealed an abundance of tools and animal bones from up to 250,000 years ago, leading to better understanding of how ancestral humans have adapted to this changing environment.

A hidden cradle of plant evolution in Permian tropical lowlands

Dinner ladies at Ladywood school in Grimethorpe return to work today, having seen off a bid to make them all redundant.

UNISON reached an agreement with the school management to address the deficit in the school’s budget without any redundancies, due to expected natural staff turnover. The school had planned to have teaching assistants cover the work done by the school meals workers, leading to them joining the strike. “It was completely unacceptable to attempt...

Human tumor genomics and zebrafish modeling identify SPRED1 loss as a driver of mucosal melanoma
Melanomas originating from mucosal surfaces have low mutation burden, genomic instability, and poor prognosis. To identify potential driver genes, we sequenced hundreds of cancer-related genes in 43 human mucosal melanomas, cataloging point mutations, amplifications, and deletions. The SPRED1 gene, which encodes a negative regulator of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling, was inactivated in 37% of the tumors. Four distinct genotypes were associated with SPRED1 loss. Using a rapid, tissue-specific CRISPR technique to model these genotypes in zebrafish, we found that SPRED1 functions as a tumor suppressor, part...
