As is true in humans, chimpanzees' general intelligence is correlated to their ability to exert self-control and delay gratification, according to new research at Georgia State University.

New study shows severe toxicity with high-dose AAV9-based gene therapy in animal models

Tue, 30 Jan 18 00:14:50 -0800

Researchers have described severe, life-threatening toxicity in monkeys and piglets given high doses of gene therapy delivered using an adeno-associated virus (AAV9) vector capable of accessing spinal cord neurons.

Meet Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua, the first monkey clones produced by method that made Dolly

Wed, 24 Jan 18 00:07:20 -0800

The first primate clones made by somatic cell nuclear transfer are two genetically identical long-tailed macaques born recently at the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Neuroscience in Shanghai. Researchers named the newborns Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua after the Chinese adjective 'Zhonghua,' which means Chinese nation or people. The technical milestone, presented in the journal Cell, makes it a realistic possibility for labs to conduct research with customizable populations of genetically uniform monkeys.

Eating insects might seem yucky, but they are nutritious and there is no reason you can't

Wed, 24 Jan 18 00:07:50 -0800

Almost all living primates still have working versions of the gene needed to produce a stomach enzyme that breaks down exoskeletons. This means that the 'yuck' factor when it comes to eating insects has nothing to do with nutrition, digestion or evolution.

Tracking down T cell targets to tamp down HIV infection

The ins and outs of Area 25

Mon, 22 Jan 18 00:06:00 -0800

Neuroscientists have charted the incoming and outgoing connections of a brain region located deep within the monkey prefrontal cortex that has important roles in emotion and memory processes. The comprehensive, high-resolution map reported in JNeurosci provides new insight into how emotional regulation may become disrupted in psychiatric disorders.

Use of primate 'actors' misleading millions of viewers

Wed, 17 Jan 18 00:10:40 -0800

More needs to be done to educate audiences, including viewers at home and filmmakers, on the unethical nature of using primates in the film industry, says a leading expert in a new study.
