KlegermanThe experts made the discovery by placing model snakes in the road of crazy chimpanzees in Uganda and watching their reactions. Those scholarly research showed that when a person chimp detects a snake, they typically create an ‘alert hoo’ to tell various other chimps within earshot. As fresh group users arrive on the picture, chimps in the know do it again their ‘alert hoo,’ completing the newcomers a snake is within their midst. The findings challenge the idea that only humans acknowledge ignorance in others and take action so as to fill them in, the experts say. They also display that chimpanzee vocalizations are influenced by a prosocial motivation, to see others of danger intentionally.The award recognizes Wysocka on her behalf prominent part in the analysis of epigenetic regulation of gene expression in developmental biology, using biochemical methods in her investigations of chromatin in embryonic stem cells and in embryos resulting in seminal contributions such as identification of chromatin regulators of stem cell fate and discovery of epigenetic priming of developmental enhancers in pluripotent cells. Thomas Maresca, an associate professor in the Biology Department at University of Massachusetts Amherst, will receive the 2013 R.R. Bensley Award in Cell Biology and present an award lecture entitled Stepping right into a Tense Relationship: Mechano-molecular Regulation of Cell Division by Force at the AAA Annual Meeting during EB 2013.
