Potential brain-machine interface for hand paralysis

(Society for Neuroscience) A brain-machine interface that combines brain stimulation with a robotic device controlling hand movement increases the output of pathways connecting the brain and spinal cord, according to a study of healthy adults published in JNeurosci. This work could have implications for restoring function in stroke patients with hand paralysis.

Expert unlocks mechanics of how snakes move in a straight line

(University of Cincinnati) University of Cincinnati biologist Bruce Jayne studied the mechanics of snake movement to understand exactly how they can propel themselves forward like a train through a tunnel. His study titled 'Crawling without Wiggling' was published in the Journal of Experimental Biology.

How far to the nearest city? Global map of travel time to cities published

(European Commission Joint Research Centre) The Joint Research Centre, the European Commission's science and knowledge service, provided expert input on the mapping of urban accessibility worldwide to support global and local decision-making on development and environmental policies.

Aerial vehicle flying freely with independently controlled main wings

(The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)) Professor Dongsoo Har and his team in Cho Chun Shik Graduate School of Green Transportation in Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) lately developed an aerial vehicle that is able to control the main wings separately and independently.

NASA calculated heavy rainfall leading to California mudslides

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Winter rains falling on recently burned ground triggered deadly mudslides in Santa Barbara County, California on Jan. 9. NASA calculated the amount of rain fall between Jan. 8 and 10, 2018 and calculated the potential for landslides.

How does seawater's 'stickiness' affect the foundations of the global food chain?

(University of Lincoln) Scientists have been awarded grant funding of almost $1 million (US Dollars) to measure the effect of how changes in the viscosity -- or 'stickiness' -- of seawater impacts the smallest types of marine life.

New options for more animal welfare

(BfR Federal Institute for Risk Assessment) In Germany, non-technical summaries of all authorized projects involving animals are published in the database AnimalTestInfo, which is operated by the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment and is at present unique worldwide. Show More Summary

Making the internet of things possible with a new breed of 'memristors'

(Aalto University) Easily printable, organic thin films can retain data for more than 10 years without power, work with low voltages -- and become the building block of future computers that mimic the human brain.

'Gyroscope' molecules form crystal that's both solid and full of motion

(University of California - Los Angeles) To make a solid crystal, molecules are generally so tightly packed together there's no room for any movement. It means that solid crystals -- despite their strength and durability -- have generally been ignored as having any possible function as molecular machines. Show More Summary

Discovering the creation era of ancient paintings at Mogao Grottoes, China

(Science China Press) Mural paintings at Mogao Grottoes are a precious cultural heritage of mankind. In mural archeology, a critical procedure is to determine the era when the mural was painted, which is called dating the painting. However, some paintings at Mogao Grottoes are dated with controversies due to the disagreement of painting experts. Show More Summary

Controlling superconductivity using spin currents

(The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)) A KAIST research team has discovered a method to flip between superconducting and non-superconducting states within an iron-based superconductor using a type of electron microscopy. The team applied spin-polarized and non-polarized currents to locally change the magnetic order in the sample.
