European Researcher Creates Virtual Reality For Lab Animals It is yet to be understood whether mice are afraid of heights or else what is their main concern while reciprocating to the social environment. It is still not very well known how the brains of freely moving animals work in social situations. Well, in this era of virtual reality there's some hope to dig deeper into the social behavior of the pets. European researchers at the Vienna Biocenter in Austria are trying to find such answers and obviously would be able to learn the behavior of the animals, possibly. They have created a virtual-reality rig for lab animals and have dubbed it nicely as FreemoVR. Computer displays have been used to build walls and floors of the virtual set-up, and the researchers have mounted abo...

Protecting Bird Habitats Across America

Statistical evidence highlights just how significant the decline is in a huge number of birds across America, and the biggest reason for this is the decline of habitat across the country. There are some quite terrible facts that are such clear indicators of where we have gone wrong. The industrialization of the world has lead to wonderful things but it has also put our entire eco system under strain. At present, we have lost over 290 million acres of grasslands across the country, which in total is the equivalent of 130 Yellowstone National parks! You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand what that means for a huge range of different bird species. Thankfully, there are conservancy companies doing great things to try to reduce the impact these changes have made, with huge
