A new method produces dense arrays of carbon nanotubes for digital logic.
Like a duck wearing Ray-Bans, but in fabric form
Researchers in Japan have grown a retina from mouse embryonic stem cells in a lab, but this isn’t just another incremental advance in tissue engineering. Scientists claim their “retina in a dish” is by no small degree the most complex biological tiss
In a development physicists are calling "huge," "tantalizing" and "unexpected," researchers have measured a signal that could herald a new kind of particle or force of nature.
Now, brain scans of children with psychopathy-like conditions suggests objective ways to diagnose psychopathy, new targets for therapy - and techniques for settling the question of whether or not psychopaths can be successfully treated and released.
First scientists said, "I wonder if we can print body parts." Then they said, "I wonder if we can grow new blood vessels." Scientists have, for the first time ever, grown a rudimentary eye in a petri dish.
Nearly a decade ago, NASA built an Earth-monitoring satellite that could have observed global warming in action. Then the agency stashed it in a warehouse in Maryland, where it remains to this day
US authorities fined cosmetics and drugs giant Johnson & Johnson $70 million on Friday for bribing doctors in Europe and paying kickbacks for contracts under a UN relief program in Iraq.
Engineering at Penn State, and his group have spent the past 18 months developing a technique that uses ionic liquids (salt in a liquid state) to facilitate separation. The separation takes place at room temperature without the generation of waste pr
fter notching a rare victory by stopping highly radioactive water from flowing into the Pacific on Wednesday, workers at Japan's flooded nuclear power complex turned to their next task: injecting nitrogen to prevent more hydrogen explosions. Nucl
Cademartiri believes the technology would work best for fires in confined spaces, such as aboard submarines, but not so much for wide-open areas like forests. As it was additionally found that electrical waves can affect the heat and distribution of
When Sir Richard Branson unveiled the Virgin Oceanic submarine, he noted that "More men have been to the moon than have been down further [underwater] than 20,000 feet." To that end, he and explorer pal will take the submarine to the deepest trenches
The automaker aims to bring a cheap hybrid technology used in some large vehicles to passenger cars.
A study shows that boosting new neurons helps mice differentiate between harmful and safe experiences.
FGF19 restored glycogen levels in the mice lacking FGF15. When administered to diabetic mice lacking insulin, FGF19 also corrected the loss of glycogen. "FGF19 does not make fat, and that's one of the effects that separates it from insulin. Insu
Given that the PSA test simply doesn't work, it makes you wonder: Why are hospitals are cancer centers still using the PSA test? Isn't thatquackery to keep using something that doesn't work while marketing it to patients as if it did work? It's n
Last week, in a converted garage in Somerville, Massachusetts, a group of about 30 eager experimentalists and curious insomniacs gathered to share the results of their latest investigations.
Bone marrow has long been thought to have a role in repairing damaged skin, and now UK and Japanese researchers think they’ve found the key to summoning stem cells from bone marrow to the site of damaged skin:
Near-Earth asteroids aren’t all that rare, but today two researchers at Armagh Observatory in Northern Ireland say they’ve found an extremely rare near-Earth object in an orbit very similar to Earth’s.
How a series of thin near-vertical lines placed in front of a display can create a stereoscopic image
A major new study has revealed a simple baby aspirin taken once a month may significantly reduce the possibility of contracting pancreatic cancer. The disease is one of the most virulent and deadly form of cancer as the average time span between init
But the researchers found the fatty meal affected the body's ability to clear the sugar out of the blood. The participant's blood sugar levels were 32% higher than they were when the men had not ingested the fat cocktail.
Scientists are working on drugs to erase memories.
"I do whatever I can to avoid the scanner," says Dr. Len Lichtenfeld another doctor affiliated with the the American Cancer Society. "This is a total body scan -- not a dental or chest X-ray," he wrote to Cohen.
the scientists were able to identify 39 corresponding proteins in humans that indicated the presence of cancer. The information scientists then calculated the four most reliable proteins as cancer indicators using 20,000 models.
From harvesting energy to building networks, nature has been solving problems for billions of years longer than humans have
Optical signals could be used instead of electrical signals to stimulate cells in the body, scientists say.
Meet iMobot, a new reconfigurable robot that can be linked together like a chain to form larger versions of itself. With four degrees of freedom, it can stand itself up and turn into a tiny camera stand, roll end-over-end like a mini tank tread, or h
Google is working on a mobile application that would allow users to snap pictures of people's faces in order to access their personal information, a director for the project said this week.
