Science Bulletins:Biodiversity Boosts Human Health
Hantavirus is an infectious pathogen carried by rodents and occasionally passed to humans, where it can be deadly. A new study led by researchers from the University of New Mexico demonstrates that when rodent biodiversity decreases in Panamanian forests, the risk of hantavirus transmission in these ecosystems increase. Since deforestation can reduce species diversity, the findings have implications for people who live at the fringes of fragmented woodlands.
Science Bulletins: Brain Control of the Grasping Hand
Many primates, notably humans, have fine motor skills that permit grasping and manipulation of small objects, essential adaptations for tool use. Curiously, the cebus is the only primate in the distantly related New World monkey group that also has a precision grip. A new study led by neuroscientists at the University of California--Davis mapped the brains of cebus monkeys to explore the signaling and evolution of the "grasping hand." The evidence suggests that the brain circuitry for a precisi
