Brain-immune system connection lymphatic vessel - Business Insider

Brain-immune system connection lymphatic vessel - Business Insider

Antoine Louveau was looking through his microscope at thin membranes that protect the brain when he saw something that absolutely shouldn’t be there: a lymphatic vessel.

(...)

Experts greeted the resulting study, published Monday in the journal Nature, with a mixture of excitement and caution. The main hurdles: Other researchers must replicate the work and confirm the vessel exists in humans, since the study primarily examined mouse brains.

A small Japanese puffer fish is the creator of one of the most spectacular animal-made structures. To impress the female puffer fish, the male labors 24 hours a day for a week to create a pattern in the sand. If the female finds his work satisfactory, she allows him to fertilize her eggs. She then lays them in the middle of the circle, leaving the male to guard the eggs alone.

Mantidflies are insects in the family Mantispidae. They are small to moderate-sized insects in the order Neuroptera. [1] There are many genera with around 400 species worldwide, especially in the tropics and subtropics. [2] Only 5 species of Mantispa occur in Europe.

Mantispids are fascinating because they look like a cross between a mantis and a vespid wasp while being directly related to neither.

And being completely harmless to humans too

Slime mold was grown on an agar gel plate shaped like America and food sources were placed where America’s large cities are. 

The result? A possible look at how to best build public transportation. 

I just really like the idea of slime mold on a map of the US. It’s beautiful.

I’m—

holy shit

I have a raging science ladyboner right now.

I’d love if we could do it on a state-by-state basis.

That same slime mold once affirmed that the Tokyo subway is pretty well-designed.

Ah yes, predatory comb jellies - rather awesome. They’ll then carve up the victim with internal chainsaws made from specialised cilia.

my favorite part is the look on its… uh. face. after it finishes swallowing
