Human brain organoids respond to visual stimuli when transplanted into adult rats
Brain organoids implanted in mice form functional connections to the mice's cortex and respond to external sensory stimuli. Team observed the organoids reacting to visual stimuli similarly to the surrounding tissues, thanks to a transparent graphene microelectrode array and two-photon imaging system that allowed real-time monitoring over several months.See the Story

Evidence that Saturn's moon Mimas is a stealth ocean world: Simulations suggest that Saturn's smallest, innermost moon could have an expanding, geologically young ocean
Mimas seemed like an unlikely candidate, with its icy, heavily cratered surface marked by one giant impact crater that makes the small moon look much like the Death Star from Star Wars. If Mimas has an ocean, it represents a new class of small, stealth ocean worlds with surfaces that do not betray the ocean's existence.See the Story

Tuning into brainwave rhythms speeds up learning in adults, study finds
First study to show that delivering information at the natural tempo of our neural pulses accelerates our ability to learn. Participants who got a simple 1.5-second visual cue at their personal brainwave frequency were at least three times faster when it came to improving at a cognitive task. When researchers tested participants again the next day, those who had improved faster were still just as good – the learning stuck.See the Story

THE LANCET: Planting more trees could decrease deaths from higher summer temperatures in cities by a third, modelling study suggests
One third of premature deaths attributable to higher temperatures in European cities during summer 2015 could have been prevented by increasing urban tree cover to 30%, reveals a modelling study published in The Lancet. The study also found that tree cover reduced urban temperatures by an average of 0.4 degrees during the summer.See the Story

Sunscreen-like chemicals found in fossil plants reveal UV radiation was involved in mass extinction events
Pollen preserved in 250 million-year-old rocks contain compounds that function like sunscreen. These are produced by plants to protect them from harmful ultraviolet (UV-B) radiation. Findings suggest that a pulse of UV-B played an important part in the end Permian mass extinction event.See the Story
