What makes creativity tick? -
A team of researchers led by a Michigan State University neuroscientist has created a quick but reliable test that can measure a person's creativity from single spoken words. While some believe creativity is spontaneous, Michigan State University neuroscientist Jeremy Gray suspects there's a lot of hard work going on in the brain even when the proverbial light bulb going off feels effortless.

Tell-tale toes point to oldest-known fossil bird tracks from Australia -
Two fossilized footprints found at Dinosaur Cove in Victoria, Australia, were likely made by birds during the Early Cretaceous, making them the oldest known bird tracks in Australia. A drag mark made by the rear toe on one of the Cretaceous bird tracks indicates that it was a flight landing track.

Compound in grapes, red wine could help treat multiple types of cancer, study finds -
The study found that melanoma cells become more susceptible to radiation if they were treated first with resveratrol. A recent study by a University of Missouri researcher shows that resveratrol, a compound found in grape skins and red wine, can make certain tumor cells more susceptible to radiation treatment. (Photo Credit: University of Missouri) Nicholl has found that resveratrol, a compound found in grape skins and red wine, can make certain tumor cells more susceptible to radiation treatment. The next step is for researchers to develop a successful method to deliver the compound to tumor sites and potentially treat many types of cancers.
