A group of researchers at Stanford and elsewhere is retracting a 2013 paper that another scientist told Nature was “one of the biggest things to happen in the narcolepsy field for some time.” The Science Translational Medicine paper caused a buzz because it claimed to show that narcolepsy was an autoimmune disease. Here’s the notice: A.K. …

The UCLA Translational Research Imaging Center, normally used in medical research, put one of two oarfishes on a CT scanning bed last week to find out what makes these things tick. Sea-life scientist Misty Paig-Tran of Cal State Fullerton, is trying to figure out how the fish swim vertically as deep as 3,300 feet below the surface of the Pacific. oarfish_scan_ucla.JPG
