Foraging skills develop over generations in the wild

Foraging skills develop over generations in the wild

Foraging skills develop over generations in the wild, Published online: 01 October 2018; doi:10.1038/d41586-018-06867-3

The movements of relocated wild animals reveal that a lost migratory skill was regained over successive generations. This suggests that skill improvements can occur over time as animals learn expertise from each other.

Scientists use AI to develop better predictions of why children struggle at school

Scientists using machine learning — a type of artificial intelligence — with data from hundreds of children who struggle at school, identified clusters of learning difficulties which did not match the previous diagnosis the children had been given. The researchers from the Medical Research Council Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit at the University of Cambridge say this reinforces the need for children to receive detailed assessments of their cognitive skills to identify the best type of support.

Researchers develop 'cytological ruler' to build 3D map of human genome

It has been almost 20 years since the human genome was first sequenced, but researchers still know little about how the genome is folded up and organized within cells. Researchers describe a new technique that can measure the position of every single gene in the nucleus to build a 3D picture of the genome’s organization.
