Peruvian anthropologist Renato Davila Riquelme has discovered the remains of an unidentified creature with a "triangle shaped" skull nearly as large as its 20-inch-tall body.
f it is proven to work, EEStor, and its equity and business partners, including Zenn and U.S. defence contractor Lockheed Martin Corp., will have a technology that could change the transportation industry, with implications for renewable energy and a
A second experiment at the European facility that reported subatomic particles zooming faster than the speed of light — stunning the world of physics — has reached the same result, scientists said late Thursday.
Fourteen-year-olds who were frequent video gamers had more gray matter in the rewards center of the brain than peers who didn't play video games as much -- suggesting that gaming may be correlated to changes in the brain much as addictions are.
In order to regenerate damaged heart muscle as caused by a heart attack, for example, the damaged muscle cells must be replaced by new ones. The number of cells to be replaced may be considerable, depending on the extent of the damage caused. Simpler
axil’s lead product, ImMucin, activates the immune system by “training” T-cells –– the immune cells that protect the body by searching out and destroying cells that display a specific molecule (or marker) called MUC1. MUC1 is typically found only on
When transplanted into rodents with brain damage similar to Parkinson's, the cells reversed the animals' motor issues.
"Currently, each time we need a cell that will perform a certain new function we have to recreate it from scratch which is a long and laborious process. Most people think all we have to do to modify behavior is to modify a cell's DNA but it's not
There are reasons to believe that the resulting arrest of multiple aspects of tissue aging by removal of p16Ink4a-expressing senescent cells would indeed translate into the tissues of genetically-intact mice -- or humans.
The spacecraft appears to be stuck in Earth orbit instead, after its engine failed to ignite to send the probe on a trajectory to the Red Planet. Now Russian Space Agency officials say they have two weeks to figure out how to start up Phobos-Grunt's
Over the past few decades the science of aging and research into ways to extend longevity have made significant progress. Speaking at the annual conference held by Technology Entertainment and Design (TED), de Grey told attendees that with sufficient
Artificial blood may become a common reality, thanks to the first successful transfusion of lab-grown blood into a human. Luc Douay, of Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris, extracted hematopoietic stem cells from a volunteer's bone marrow, and e
The great MIT Mood Meter claims to know all your hopes, dreams and fears. Well, perhaps not. But it can count the number of smiles in a given area, giving some kind of indicator of mood expression.
The results could be an initial step toward generating viable, transplantable human organs.
A recent report by CBS 11 News in Dallas / Fort Worth explains that researchers from the University of Texas (UT) Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas have identified a compound they say spurs the growth of a key protein known as REDD-1, which preve
n crystalline silicon that consisted of an orthogonal regular pattern of pores that crossed each other perpendicularly. The pores formed a diamond structure that was found to behave as a semiconductor for light: a photonic crystal
The SENS model breaks aging down to 7 major classes of damage; cancer-causing nuclear mutations, Mitochondrial mutations, intracellular junk, extracellular junk, cell loss and atrophy, cell senescence and extracellular crosslinks.
By measuring electrical activity in the patients’ brains with a relatively simple technique, the researchers attempted to discern whether, in fact, they were conscious and able to communicate.
That's because after more than 100 years, much of Marie Curie's stuff – her papers, her furniture, even her cookbooks – are still radioactive. Those who wish to open the lead-lined boxes containing her manuscripts must do so in protective clothing, a
The researchers found on the outside surface of the macrophage is a protein called S100A10, which enables the macrophage to remove the tissue barriers retarding migration to the tumor site.
The findings demonstrate the challenges of developing treatments based on living cells. "Previously, I think many people thought of cell therapy [for Parkinson's] as a dopamine-producing biological pump," says Ole Isacson, a neuroscientist at Harv

Eat few if any processed foods. Eat the right kinds of fat (omega-3s). Take in very little sugar that is not from fruit. Eat lots of real fiber (plant products). Drink a moderate amount of alcohol almost every day. Take in relatively few calorie
So here is where it starts to get real. Quitting smoking has immediate benefits to your health, and the health of those around you. There is indeed a huge amount of evidence to suggest that after just one year of being smoke free your risk of heart a
"We are able to show that caloric restriction slows down aging by preventing an enzyme, peroxiredoxin, from being inactivated. This enzyme is also extremely important in counteracting damage to our genetic material," says Mikael Molin of the Depart
A study released by Akamai in September 2009 concluded that: 47% expect a web page to load in two seconds or less. 40% will abandon a web page if it takes more than three seconds to load. 52% of online shoppers claim that quick page loads ar
In the new study, the team bred mice to age quickly, getting cataracts, weakened muscles and loss of fat deposits by the time they are 10 months old, when they die of heart disease.
One of the questions I am asked most often is how to deal with Type 1 (Insulin-Dependent) diabetics in a collapse situation. I have been informed that Insulin was prepared in Singapore during WWII, in an effort to produce medicine for those in the J
In this way the pulse is shaped to deposit about three million electron volts of kinetic energy per ion, within one nanosecond duration, onto a spot just one millimeter in diameter on a thin foil target.
Before the invention of the compass, Norse adventurers travelled thousands of kilometres across the oceans toward Greenland and most likely as far as North America centuries ahead of Christopher Columbus.
