Did you know that the guitarfish has been playing it flat for 100 million years? We now have three making beautiful music together in our Aviary. It gets its name from a long, pointed snout and guitar-shaped body. It lies in ambush with its eyes sticking out of the sand, waiting for careless crabs to wander by.

Predicting epilepsy
Biomarker indicates which victims of febrile seizures will later develop the brain disorder
A newly discovered biomarker – visible in brain scans for hours after febrile seizures – predicts which individuals will eventually develop epilepsy, according to UC Irvine researchers. This diagnostic ability could lead to improved use of preventive therapies for the disorder.
A team led by Dr. Tallie Z. Baram found that rats exhibiting this novel signal in magnetic resonance imaging scans of their brains manifested symptoms of epilepsy months after experiencing very long febrile seizures. Those that did not possess this biomarker remained free of the disorder. The study appeared in the June 25 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience.

While Israeli combat fatalities are given up-front attention, Palestinian fatalities are brushed off as “others.”
