I write about the brain and other strange natural phenomena.

  • Old Brains Learn New Tricks

    Imaging neurons in the living brains of mice shows that these cells can grow in surprising ways – perhaps suggesting new ways to treat spinal cord injuries and other neurological problems.

  • Best in Biotech for 2005

    Stem cell quandaries, a map of human genetic variability, a lengthy debate on lifespan extension – this year in biotech was one to remember.

  • Heading Off Heart Attacks

    A potential genetic test for cardiovascular risk shows how “pharmacogenomics” is coming into its own.

  • Dog DNA May Lead to Cures

    The canine genome could help researchers understand such major conditions as blindness, cancer, and OCD.
