first_img Email The function of tuft cells, the turf-topped cells scattered among various parts of the body, has eluded researchers for decades. Some contain the same chemical-sensing surface proteins that act as taste receptors on the tongue. But they appear in the lining of structures such as the intestines, lungs, and urethra that have no apparent need to “taste” anything. Now, research reveals these oddball cells serve as sentinels along the body’s invasion routes, relying on their sensory capabilities to detect pathogens and allergens trying to infiltrate the body.This Australian farmer is saving fossils of some of the planet’s weirdest, most ancient creaturesWhen a rancher purchased the Nilpena cattle station in South Australia 30 years ago, he suddenly became the unexpected steward of some of the world’s oldest fossils. The ranch contains about 60 species from the Ediacaran, the period when Earth’s first multicellular creatures arose some 560 million years ago. Recent financial troubles had some worried about the site’s future, but on 28 March the state government of South Australia purchased about half of the station, which is almost singular in its preservation of entire communities of ancient Ediacaran organisms.New neurons for life? Old people can still make fresh brain cells, study findsOne of the thorniest debates in neuroscience is whether people can make new neurons after their brains stop developing in adolescence—a process known as neurogenesis. Now, a new study finds that even people long past middle age can make fresh brain cells, and past studies that failed to spot these newcomers may have used flawed methods.Duke University settles research misconduct lawsuit for $112.5 millionDuke University will pay $112.5 million to the U.S. government to settle a lawsuit brought by a former employee who alleged the university included falsified data in applications and reports for federal grants worth nearly $200 million. The university will also take several steps “to improve the quality and integrity of research conducted on campus,” including the creation of a new advisory panel that will provide recommendations to the president, the Durham, North Carolina, institution said in a statement released earlier this week.

Not always, new research suggestsCities and states across the United States are moving to ease cash bail and other pretrial detention policies that critics say are unfair, counterproductive, and contribute little to public safety. The reforms are contentious, but relatively little hard evidence informs the battle. Now, social scientists are launching studies to find out whether pretrial practices such as cash bail really do result in higher appearance rates and safer communities. Results published last month, for example, bolstered reformers’ case that cash bail is ineffective, at least in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.Closing in on a century-old mystery, scientists are figuring out what the body’s ‘tuft cells’ do By Alex FoxMar. 29, 2019 , 3:20 PM Country * Afghanistan Aland Islands Albania Algeria Andorra Angola Anguilla Antarctica Antigua and Barbuda Argentina Armenia Aruba Australia Austria Azerbaijan Bahamas Bahrain Bangladesh Barbados Belarus Belgium Belize Benin Bermuda Bhutan Bolivia, Plurinational State of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba Bosnia and Herzegovina Botswana Bouvet Island Brazil British Indian Ocean Territory Brunei Darussalam Bulgaria Burkina Faso Burundi Cambodia Cameroon Canada Cape Verde Cayman Islands Central African Republic Chad Chile China Christmas Island Cocos (Keeling) Islands Colombia Comoros Congo Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Cook Islands Costa Rica Cote d’Ivoire Croatia Cuba Curaçao Cyprus Czech Republic Denmark Djibouti Dominica Dominican Republic Ecuador Egypt El Salvador Equatorial Guinea Eritrea Estonia Ethiopia Falkland Islands (Malvinas) Faroe Islands Fiji Finland France French Guiana French Polynesia French Southern Territories Gabon Gambia Georgia Germany Ghana Gibraltar Greece Greenland Grenada Guadeloupe Guatemala Guernsey Guinea Guinea-Bissau Guyana Haiti Heard Island and McDonald Islands Holy See (Vatican City State) Honduras Hungary Iceland India Indonesia Iran, Islamic Republic of Iraq Ireland Isle of Man Israel Italy Jamaica Japan Jersey Jordan Kazakhstan Kenya Kiribati Korea, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Republic of Kuwait Kyrgyzstan Lao People’s Democratic Republic Latvia Lebanon Lesotho Liberia Libyan Arab Jamahiriya Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Macao Macedonia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Madagascar Malawi Malaysia Maldives Mali Malta Martinique Mauritania Mauritius Mayotte Mexico Moldova, Republic of Monaco Mongolia Montenegro Montserrat Morocco Mozambique Myanmar Namibia Nauru Nepal Netherlands New Caledonia New Zealand Nicaragua Niger Nigeria Niue Norfolk Island Norway Oman Pakistan Palestine Panama Papua New Guinea Paraguay Peru Philippines Pitcairn Poland Portugal Qatar Reunion Romania Russian Federation Rwanda Saint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha Saint Kitts and Nevis Saint Lucia Saint Martin (French part) Saint Pierre and Miquelon Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Samoa San Marino Sao Tome and Principe Saudi Arabia Senegal Serbia Seychelles Sierra Leone Singapore Sint Maarten (Dutch part) Slovakia Slovenia Solomon Islands Somalia South Africa South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands South Sudan Spain Sri Lanka Sudan Suriname Svalbard and Jan Mayen Swaziland Sweden Switzerland Syrian Arab Republic Taiwan Tajikistan Tanzania, United Republic of Thailand Timor-Leste Togo Tokelau Tonga Trinidad and Tobago Tunisia Turkey Turkmenistan Turks and Caicos Islands Tuvalu Uganda Ukraine United Arab Emirates United Kingdom United States Uruguay Uzbekistan Vanuatu Venezuela, Bolivarian Republic of Vietnam Virgin Islands, British Wallis and Futuna Western Sahara Yemen Zambia Zimbabwe (Left to right): UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI IN ST.
