Biologists from HKBU have led a study to sequence and analyse the genomes of four apple snail species in the family Ampullariidae and discovered that the apple snails have evolved to become highly sensitive to environmental stimuli, digest cellulose (a major component of the plant cell wall), form hard calcareous eggshells and pack neurotoxins in eggs.

Researchers in Japan have identified the potential genes responsible for coral bleaching caused by temperature elevation.
What and where in the processing of body-part information
05 Apr 2019
Our brain tells us where parts of the body are in space. We know without looking if our arm is in the air, our foot is in front of the other or beside it. It is called proprioception or body localization and helps us locate our body parts.
 In vitro/in silico evaluations of binding affinities of perfluoroalkyl substances to Baikal seal PPARα
29 Mar 2019
New research found that some man-made chemicals bind more easily to a key protein receptor in Russia's Baikal seals than it does in humans, in part because of the physical structure of the chemical.
Functional MRI (fMRI)

Based on the principles of traditional Chinese tangram games, with this new method teachers and parents can easily identify children with early visual processing difficulties. This will enable the provision of suitable support and training to children in need, while also enhancing their learning outcomes.

Amami spiny rat
31 Jan 2019
A look at the brains of an endangered spiny rat off the coast of Japan by University of Missouri (MU) Bond Life Sciences Center scientist Cheryl Rosenfeld could illuminate the subtle genetic influences that stimulate a mammal’s cells to develop as male versus female in the absence of a Y chromosome.
