Transcriptomic and open chromatin atlas of high-resolution anatomical regions in the rhesus macaque brain

The rhesus macaque is a prime model animal in neuroscience. A comprehensive transcriptomic and open chromatin atlas of the rhesus macaque brain is key to a deeper understanding of the brain. Recently, researchers characterize the transcriptome of 416 brain samples from 52 regions of 8 rhesus macaque brains.

News: Michelangelo's Medici Chapel may contain hidden symbols of female anatomy

Michelangelo often surreptitiously inserted pagan symbols into his works of art, many of them possibly associated with anatomical representations. A new analysis suggests that Michelangelo may have concealed symbols associated with female anatomy within his famous work in the Medici Chapel.

For example, the sides of tombs in the chapel depict bull/ram skulls and horns with similarity to the uterus and fallopian tubes, respectively.

Numerous studies have offered interpretations of the link between anatomical figures and hidden symbols in works of art not only by Michelangelo but also by other Renaissance artists.

News: Nerve cell findings may aid understanding of movement disorders

The findings relate to a type of cell connection that allows electrical and chemical messages to flow from nerve to muscle cells, enabling motion.

The results shed light into conditions where these connections break down, such as motor neuron disease, which can lead to severe problems with walking and reflexes.

Researchers used cutting-edge imaging to study 3000 of these cell connections -- known as neuromuscular junctions (NMJ) -- from tissue gifted by 20 donors undergoing unrelated leg surgery.

The study revealed details of the anatomy of human NMJs that had not been seen before.
