Scientists were able to zoom in and out in real time as the brain processed sound | Amazing Science
Researchers at Johns Hopkins have mapped a new technique for watching auditory processing in the brains of mice as brain cells lit up when the mice listened to tones and one another’s calls. The results, which represent a step toward better understanding how our own brains process language, appear online July 31 in the journal Neuron. In the past, researchers often studied sound processing in various animal brains by poking tiny electrodes into the auditory cortex, the part of the brain that…

Hair cells that sense sound in your ear.
These cells get their name from the hairlike structures that extend from them into the fluid-filled tube of the inner ear. When sound reaches your ear, the hairs bend and the cells convert this movement into signals that are sent to the brain.

via Catherine Willis blog Coccolithophores are microscopic algae that first appeared 220 million years ago, and flourished during the cretaceous period. They produce peculiar plates called cocoliths out of calcium carbonate, and incorporate them into an external shell. They constantly remove carbon from the atmosphere as they die and sink to the ocean floor, producing chalk. This is an important feedback system in the global carbon cycle. And here we are, stitching, knitting, crocheting…
