(Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center) Scientists report Nature Communications it may be possible to therapeutically fine tune a constantly shifting balance of molecular signals to ensure the body's peripheral nerves are insulated and functioning normally. Show More Summary
(University of Basel) In two independent studies, scientists at the University of Basel have demonstrated that both the structure of the brain and several memory functions are linked to immune system genes. The scientific journals Nature Communications and Nature Human Behaviour have published the results of the research.
(University of California - San Diego) Biologists at UC San Diego have provided the first evidence that a widely used pesticide can significantly impair the ability of otherwise healthy honey bees to fly. The study, which employed aShow More Summary
(Massachusetts General Hospital) A team of investigators based at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital has devised a means of noninvasively tracking nanodiamonds with magnetic resonance imaging, opening up a host of new applications.
(George Washington University) A new study examining medical provider attitudes toward prescribing PrEP to prevent HIV found that those who already prescribe it do not see widespread increases in risky sexual behavior among their patients as a result.
(University of California - Irvine) India will not be able to meet its Paris climate agreement commitments in the coming years if it carries through with plans to construct nearly 370 coal-fired power plants, according to University of California, Irvine and CoalSwarm researchers.
(PLOS) A new study, publishing on April 25 in the open access journal PLOS Biology, has shed light on how the brain helps us to predict what is coming next in speech.
(New Jersey Institute of Technology) Efforts to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels are advancing on various significant fronts. Initiatives include research focused on more efficient production of gaseous hydrogen fuel by using solar energy to break water down into components of hydrogen and oxygen. Show More Summary
(American Institute of Physics) Researchers at the University of California, Riverside, inspired by efforts to promote green energy, are exploring the factors driving commercial customers in Southern California, both large and small, to purchase and install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Show More Summary
(University of Central Florida) A chemistry professor in Florida has just found a way to trigger the process of photosynthesis in a synthetic material, turning greenhouse gases into clean air and producing energy all at the same time. Show More Summary
(DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory) The annual potential of solar energy far exceeds the world's energy consumption, but the goal of using the sun to provide a significant fraction of global electricity demand is far from being realized.
(King's College London) A chemotherapy drug used to treat brain cancer may increase vulnerability to depression by stopping new brain cells from growing, according to a new King's College London study out today in Translational Psychiatry.
(Institute for Basic Science) IBS scientists model the formation of multivalleys in semiconductor microcavities, bringing new ideas to the emerging valleytronics field.
(University of Rochester Medical Center) Patients, researchers, and policy experts are invited to attend the Technology & Rare Neurological Diseases Symposium (TRNDS), taking place Friday, May 12, at the University of Rochester Medical Center in upstate New York. Show More Summary
(University of Alaska Fairbanks) A research team led by the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Colorado College has solved a century-old mystery involving a famous red waterfall in Antarctica. New evidence links Blood Falls to a large source of salty water that may have been trapped under Taylor Glacier for more than 1 million years.
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) A new system developed by engineers at MIT could make it possible to control the way water moves over a surface, using only light. This advance may open the door to technologies such as microfluidic...Show More Summary
(British Antarctic Survey) New research describes for the first time the role that warm, dry winds play in influencing the behaviour of Antarctic ice shelves.
(British Antarctic Survey) The most comprehensive and high-resolution atlas of the seafloor of both Polar Regions is presented this week (Tuesday April 25) at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna.
(Osaka University) Research at Osaka University identified a novel mode of action for a potential antidepressant that also leads to nerve cell growth in the mouse hippocampus. The activator of a serotonin receptor uses a different mechanism to the most commonly used antidepressants, SSRIs. Show More Summary
(University of Nevada, Reno) The unassuming ice plant could become an ingenious weapon in the fight against a warming climate that threatens to limit regions suitable for growing biofuel crops. Biochemist and molecular biologist John...Show More Summary
