The 2000 prize went to Arvid Carlsson of Sweden and Paul Greengard and Eric Kandel from the US. Their discoveries have made it possible to develop drugs against Parkinson's disease and schizophrenia. Sweden's Karolinska institute said the work was "crucial" for understanding the normal function of the brain.

The Adelaide-based company has pointed the finger at two cyber-squatters — one in Melbourne and another in California. It says they have seized about 20% of industry names in the hope of big money for their return. The law firm is planning to launch legal action on behalf of a number of wine companies.

It is thought that cabin crews and frequent fliers are exposed to a higher cancer risk from the sun and other sources penetrating aeroplane cabins. Scientists and Virgin Atlantic are now fitting monitoring equipment to jets. The experts will be measuring the radiation risk over ranges of latitudes, longitudes and times.

The 'bshington Post reported an Asian gaur, an ox-like animal native to India and Burma, was cloned by a single skin cell taken from a dead gaur. Scientists from Massachusetts fused the cell to a cow's egg whose own genes were removed. The cell was then transferred to the womb of another cow.
