Cordillera Azul Antbird: New Bird Species Discovered in Peru
A distinctive new species of antbird has been discovered in the humid montane forests of the San Martin region in north-central Peru. The antbirds are a large family of insect-eating passerine birds, Thamnophilidae, known for habitually following columns of marching ants. There are more than 210 species in roughly 45 genera, known variously as antshrikes, [...]

60-Million-Year-Old Meteorite Impact Zone Discovered on Scotland’s Isle of Skye
A team of geologists has found 60 million-year-old ejecta from a previously unknown meteorite impact on the Isle of Skye, northwest Scotland. This is the first recorded mid-Paleocene impact event in the region and is coincident with the onset of magmatism in the British Paleogene Igneous Province. The team, headed by Birkbeck University of London [...]

Yoga may have health benefits for people with chronic non-specific lower back pain
A new systematic review, published in the Cochrane Library today, suggests that yoga may lead to a reduction in pain and functional ability in people with chronic non-specific lower back pain over the short term, compared with no exercise. However, researchers advise that more studies are needed to provide information on long-term effects.

Study first to connect stress-associated brain activity with cardiovascular risk
A study led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISSMS) investigators has linked, for the first time in humans, activity in a stress-sensitive structure within the brain to the risk of subsequent cardiovascular disease. The team's findings, being published in the journal The Lancet, also reveals a pathway leading from activation of that structure—the amygdala—through elevated immune system activity to an increased incidence of cardiovascular events.
