Sugar Work: Study Finds Sugar Remodels Molecular Memory In Fruit Flies by University of Michigan

Examining fruit flies, researchers Monica Dus, Anoumid Vaziri and collaborators found that high-sugar diets completely remodeled the flies’ taste cells, leaving a molecular memory that lasts even when the flies were switched back to healthy diets. The molecular memory of the previous diet could lock animals into a pattern of unhealthy eating behavior. Their findings […]

How Venus Flytraps Store Short-Term ‘Memories’ Of Prey by Curtis Segarra

Calcium concentrations in leaf cells signal when the carnivorous plants should snap shut. A Venus flytrap’s short-term “memory” can last about 30 seconds. If an insect taps the plant’s sensitive hairs only once, the trap remains still. But if the insect taps again within about half a minute, the carnivorous plant’s leaves snap shut, ensnaring […]
