Michigan State Awarded $1.5 M in Research Funding to Find Cause of Psychosis

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Fri, Apr 06, 2018

When an individual loses touch with reality and sees, hears, or believes things that aren’t real it is referred to as a psychosis. People suffering a psychotic episode often experience the delusion that their actions are being controlled by others, such as the government or aliens. The physiology behind this break with reality remains a mystery. Thanks to a $1.5 million, four-year, grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), scientists at Michigan State University will conduct a study aimed at identifying the brain mechanisms responsible for causing psychosis.

Research News: Michigan State Saving the Bees from Pesticides 

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Dec 18, 2017

Without pesticides farmers would become nearly impossible to feeding earth’s 7.6 billion inhabitants. One third of our global food supply is pollinated by bees. Researchers at Michigan State University’s entomology department may have found molecular tweaks that can allow Pyrethroid pesticides to kill pests without killing bees.

Michigan State: $1.5M in Research Funding for Electric Catfish Study

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Jun 14, 2017

Electric catfish is the common name for the catfish that belong to the Malapteruridae family.  Several species of this family can produce an electric shock of up to 350 volts. To do this the use electric organ known as electroplaques. This electrogenic organ is derived from anterior body musculature and lines the body cavity. Electric catfish are found in tropical Africa and the Nile River. Some species feed primarily on other fish, incapacitating their prey with electric discharges. However the majority are generalist bottom feeders. The largest species can grow to up four feet long.

$2.3M Project to Beat Downy Mildew Led by MSU Researchers

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Jun 13, 2016

Vegetables. Downy mildew, a fungus-like pathogen, is a major threat to crops around the country. Cucurbit crops like squash, cucumber, and melons suffered from a downy mildew outbreak in 2004 that initially only affected crops in the southeastern United States but later spread throughout the Midwestern region, and is still affecting these foods today. Michigan is a state where crops are greatly affected by downy mildew. A team of researchers from Michigan State University will be leading a $2.3 million project, granted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, to develop methods to manage downy mildew. (Image courtesy of Kerstin Ellen Hantschel via Wikimedia Commons)
