Scientists have developed an "intelligent knife" that can tell surgeons immediately whether the tissue they are cutting is cancerous or not.
“In 1983, the CCP’s Political and Legislative Affairs Committee sent down a notice to the Ministry of Health, setting the precedent,” Pan said. The PLAC is the high-level Communist Party committee that oversees all law enforcement organs in China, in
Drinking three pints of beer – or three medium-sized glasses of wine – once a week permanently dulls the brain, according to a study. Researchers discovered that regular drinkers have to use almost 20 per cent more brain-power than normal to carry o
"I was staying with my daughter and they like to have the television on in their house. I turned to my daughter and said 'you ought to get a decent telly, one where the sound and programme are synchronised'. I gave a little chuckle. But they said
Telling about procedures that are restoring mobility to full spinal cord injuries and to get past the myths about the state of medicine in China. Chinese surgeons typically have ten times the experience of american surgeons. Chinese orthopedic
Water is becoming an increasingly important issue in the developed world.
Their idea is state of the art: Ten Bielefeld students have set their sights on constructing a bio-battery.
The link between geothermal power production and earthquakes is one long since established, but new research is providing fresh insight into how Earth responds to this and other sorts of poking around underground that we do.
Two years after they embarked on a solar-cell printing initiative, Australian researchers are showing off cells the size of A3 paper – that’s about 16.5 by 11.7 inches – spit out by a $200,000 machine.
Weather permitting, I love to throw open every window in the house. Indoor air can be stagnant and even more polluted than what’s outside, so every now and then, it’s nice to feel the cleansing effects of a fresh breeze, especially at night.
For the first time, researchers have succeeded in levitating and moving arbitrarily shaped objects using acoustic (sound) waves.
The new test calculates the ration of theta and beta brain waves in children age six to 17. The test 'can help confirm a diagnosis' for the mental health condition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
German and Canadian scientists have built a three dimensional map of the human brain to help guide researchers investigating the origins of diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
Research from the VA Boston Healthcare System suggests new approaches to fighting Alzheimer’s disease.
Pavement that acts as an air purifier could help cities consume their own pollution.
A space elevator based on carbon nanotube (CNT) cables is one of those ideas from 1950s-style futurism that are so whacky they might just work.
Scientists are conducting experiments aboard the International Space Station (ISS) to better understand how coffee behaves in microgravity.
In an experiment that could be described as a science fair exhibit on steroids, researchers from Australia and the United States have created a model explaining the geophysical processes .....
NASA reports it has successfully tested the first-ever 3D printed rocket component, demonstrating a technology that could eventually lead to more efficient manufacturing of rocket engines.
Have you ever awakened from a summer night in the woods, camping with friends, only to find you were the sole victim of a mosquito onslaught? Or have you returned from a hike covered in bites, yet your friends were without?
Research to find a way of killing cancer cells, without harming normal, healthy cells.
Researchers say two new drugs for Alzheimer's disease have shown promise in early experiments and will likely progress to the next round of clinical trials.
Using microarray technology, researchers can distinguish between viral and bacterial infections in children with fever by profiling the activity of genes in a blood sample.
KERS stands for kinetic energy recovery system, and if you’re a fan of Formula 1 or LeMans series racing you know all about it.
Russia plans to built floating reactors that can dock at remote Arctic cities to provide energy and fresh water. Here's how they work.
The fact that the E-Thrust on display in Paris was simply a plastic display on a podium is a clear indication that it’s still a long way from taking to the skies. Both the DEAP system from EADS and NASA’s TeDP rely heavily on superconducting motors t
The transplanted structures also took on a range of liver functions — secreting liver-specific proteins and producing human-specific metabolites. But perhaps most notably, these buds quickly hooked up with nearby blood vessels and continued to grow a
Our project, for instance, has identified over 200 potential adverse health effects of gluten consumption. One does not therefore have to have classically defined celiac disease, or “wheat allergy,” to experience adverse effects associated with glut
A new systematic review published in PLoS titled, “Herpes Zoster Risk Reduction through Exposure to Chickenpox Patients:
Did you know that scientists all over the globe are creating extremely bizarre human-animal chimeras? Over the past decade, there have been some absolutely stunning advances in the field of genetic modification. Today, it is literally possible for
