If you're busy snapping photos of an experience, you may not remember it well. So suggests a new study, which compared groups of museum tourists, one with cameras, the other without, the Guardian reports. Scientists found that those who took pictures of "each object as a whole" recalled fewer items...
Scientists at King's College London have, for the first time, identified the unique properties of two different types of cells, known as fibroblasts, in the skin – one required for hair growth and the other responsible for repairing skin wounds. Show More Summary

Less than 20 miles from the site where melting ice exposed the 5,000-year-old body of Ötzi the Iceman, scientists have discovered new and compelling evidence that the Italian Alps are warming at an unprecedented rate. Part of that evidence comes in the form of a single dried-out leaf from a larch tree that grew thousands of years ago.

Cancer involves a breakdown of normal cell behavior. Cell reproduction and movement go haywire, causing tumors to grow and spread through the body. A new finding by University of Pennsylvania scientists has identified key steps that trigger this disintegration of cellular regulation. Show More Summary
Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a new optical sensor that can track zinc in the body's cells, enabling researchers to learn more about its functions.Zinc is an essential mineral and is found in every tissue in the body. Show More Summary
In order to improve the evaluation process for the long-term consequences of pesticides, scientists have developed a new detection method and a model that can enable determinations regarding whether and how readily biodegradable the residues of pesticides are.
Scientists have used a new method to map the response of every salmonella gene to conditions in the human body, providing new insight into how the bacteria triggers infection. In a world first, the scientists exposed salmonella to 22...Show More Summary
The Leuven-based VIB researchers have revealed a mechanism that explains why the anti-tumor activity of specific immune cells called macrophages is suppressed during tumor growth. They have also demonstrated that blocking the protein Nrp1 can restore this anti-tumor immune response. Show More Summary
(MINEOLA, N.Y.) — Alan Alda, the actor-turned-part-time professor, has a new question for scientists to consider: How do you explain color to an 11-year-old? The television and film star best known for his role in the 1970s sitcom “MASH”...Show More Summary
The impact of ocean acidification is of great concern for Pacific communities who depend on healthy oceans for their livelihood. Dr Katharina Fabricius is a coral reef scientist from the Australian Institute of Marine Science in Townsville, North Queensland. She is investigating the consequences of ocean acidification at three volcanic sites in Papua New Guinea. […]
SAN FRANCISCO—Scientists recently recorded the lowest temperatures on Earth at a desolate and remote ice plateau in East Antarctica, trumping a record set in 1983 and uncovering a new puzzle about the ice-covered continent. read mor...

Carbon nanotubes carry plasmonic signals in the terahertz range of the electromagnetic spectrum, but only if they’re metallic by nature or doped. In new research, the Rice University laboratory of physicist Junichiro Kono disproved previous theories that dominant terahertz response comes from narrow-gap semiconducting nanotubes. read more
