The team recorded neural signals coming from monarch butterfly's

WASHINGTON, April 16 (Xinhua) -- U.S. scientists have found a way to explain the secret of one of nature's most famous journey, the great migration of monarch butterflies from southeast Canada to Mexico year after year.

In a study published in the journal Cell Reports on Friday, scientists from the University of Washington, Massachusetts and Michigan announced that they have modeled the neural control mechanisms in the butterfly's brain, solving the mystery of how monarch butterflies are able to navigate through vast distance during their annual migration.

Leading researcher Professor Eli Shlizerman, from the University of Washington, said that as a mathematician, he wanted to understand how the creature processes different types of information during their long-distance migration, and what people can learn from such systems.

Monarch butterflies watch the sun, but that's not enough to lead them where they need to go. They also need the time of day, the study said. They have a kind of internal clock that keeps track of the daily go-round.

The team recorded neural signals coming from monarch butterfly's antenna nerves to keep the track of the clock information, as well as the information from the insect's eyes to account for sun position.

Then they used that data to build a model circuit to show the neural control mechanisms for the "clock" and "sun position" that help the butterfly point itself southwest.

Each Autumn, millions of monarch butterflies travel over 4000 km from southeast Canada and the United States to escape from the cold and hibernate in Mexico. They usually rest in six Mexican sanctuaries in the central and western part of the Latin American country.

Imagine that the year is 2055. (Although we have leapt 40 years ahead in time Kids Donnel Pumphrey Jersey , you don’t have to imagine yourselves to be 40 years older. smile This is just a thought experiment and you can be the same age that you are today.) You are living in an apartment complex in one of the big cities of India. You are standing in your terrace, waiting for the sun to rise. You see the master of our universe appear at the horizon and pay your obeisance. Then you perform your morning ablutions and flush. The flush is very hi-tech and therefore consumes only 3 litres of water; today’s flushes consume almost 4 times as much. After flushing, the “black water” doesn’t head through the sewage lines towards the closest “wet wells”. Instead it is taken to a black water filtering system (BWFS) which is located at the base of your building, where it is first “de-watered” Kids Rasul Douglas Jersey , which means separating the organic matter from the water. The former is sent for vermi-composting and turns into safe fertilizer in an year or so, while the latter is filtered, treated, and stored.

Then you brush. The “grey water” that is produced while gargling and washing your mouth goes to a grey water filtering system (GWFS) at the base of the building Kids Sidney Jones Jersey , where it is filtered and stored.

Then you have a sumptuous, healthy breakfast and head for the shower. The water heater in the bathroom allows you to select the exact temperature of the water that you want. If you change it while having bath, the heater responds instantly. Its energy consumption is only 20% that of today’s heaters even when you select the highest temperature which gives you steaming hot water! As you lower the desired water temperature, its energy consumption also goes down Kids Derek Barnett Jersey , and is next to nothing for lukewarm water whose temperature is close to our body temperature.

As you get ready to leave for work, your wife packs your lunch bag. If you are a woman and wondering, “Are women going to pack lunch-bags for their husbands even in 2055?” I would say, “If you don’t like that thought Womens Carson Wentz Jersey , you are free to substitute it with one that suits your imagination! smile I am not a male chauvinist and my focus isn’t really on propagating any stereotypes. Therefore, whether the wife packs the lunchbox for her husband or vice versa, isn’t really important for my article, whose focus in very much on sustainability. smile Anyway… the point is that “somebody” packs your lunchbox. The vegetables in the lunchbox are grown on the terrace outside every flat and on top of the building. They are cooked on steam-based cookers using steam that is generated by a concentrated solar thermal (CST) steam generator installed on the roof of the building.

Then you call the elevator Womens Isaac Seumalo Jersey , while it is on the 22nd floor, to your floor, the 17th. As it comes down to your floor and then goes all the way to L4 – 4th floor below the ground floor – where your car is parked, the inbuilt Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) energizes a flywheel. The stored energy will be used to power the motor that moves elevator.

You get to your parking spot and get into your car. It’s an electric vehicle (EV) of course Womens Jordan Hicks Jersey , whose batteries have been charged during the night from the power outlet in your parking spot. Now you might wonder, “During the day, somebody else can charge hisher car’s batteries by plugging into my spot, can’t they?” Well Womens Nelson Agholor Jersey , the answer to that question is a resounding “No” because power will be dispensed only to the “authorized” car. So relax, you won’t have to pay for charging somebody else’s car batteries! Your car also has KERS which gets energized while braking; the stored energy is used to give you a boost the next time you are accelerating. Due to this, your car can go almost 100 kms on one full charge! If however, you want to go on a 300 km long drive in your EV Womens Mack Hollins Jersey , you can take a couple of fuel cell packs with you, each one of them allowing you to go an additional 100 kms.

As you reach office and get.
