At first, the decay was subtle. In the 1980s, Medicare imposed price controls upon physicians who treated anyone over 65. Any provider wishing to get compensated was required to use International Statistical Classification of Diseases (ICD) and Curre
Intertek Group plc ("Intertek") rigorously tested an extensive sampling of EEStor capacitor layers across multiple voltages (250vdc, 450vdc, 700vdc, 1000vdc and 1500vdc) using its own equipment and testing protocols. In addition, a 250vdc,six-lay
In the mid 1960's, Montague Ullman, MD, began a number of experiments at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York to test the hypothesis that sleeping people could dream about randomly selected material that they were targeting to dream abou
Psychoactive mushrooms had been in a kind of scientific ghetto ever since they were criminalized in 1968. But now the drug derived from the mushroom, psilocybin, is finally being re-examined for its medical applications.
Doctors wired them right into his nerves.
What happens when we teach a computer how to learn?
Computers aren't best suited to visual object recognition. Our brains are hardwired to quickly see and match patterns in everything, with great leaps of intuition, while the processing center of a computer is more akin to a very powerful calculator.
The part of the brain that tells us the direction to travel when we navigate has been identified by UCL scientists, and the strength of its signal predicts how well people can navigate.
In 2012, a quadriplegic woman managed to move a robotic arm, using only her thoughts, to a level of proficiency that allowed her to eat a chocolate bar using said arm. The University of Pittsburgh team behind the study didn't stop there, though.
Is there anything that's worse than having a child who might be suffering from an ear infection? (Other, of course, than being said child.)
Chances are your thinking will have changed, especially if you have read a series of insulting, negative, or mocking remarks?"as so often you will. Once upon a time, it seemed as if the Internet would be a place of civilized and open debate; now, u
Irrespective of its goal, a scientific research project may sometimes throw up gifts for the researcher that are worth being showcased as well.
British scientists have developed a new use for 3D printing, putting it to work to create personalized replica models of cancerous parts of the body to allow doctors to target tumors more precisely.
Derby was born with deformed front legs, but prosthetics made by a 3-D printer allow him to run. (3D Systems)
Using a new technology which tracks eye movements of patients viewing music videos just under four minutes, researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center have developed a new way to assess the location and impact of a brain injury.
Back in 2009, Utah-based company Klymit came up with a wild idea for cold-weather clothing: replace traditional insulation with gas.
A new laser link with the International Space Station could do what optical fiber has done for internet access on Earth
Life is pretty interesting, and at the microscopic scale, it can also be beautiful, strange, intriguing, frightening and gross.
Both Bob and Jeffrey have new books on the subject of Bitcoin and P2P. Here they talk about what they learned as they researched and wrote, and how Bitcoin has changed their views concerning money, property, and emergent technology.
If the pH of your blood rises above 7.45, the result is alkalosis. Severe alkalosis can also lead to death, but through a different mechanism; alkalosis causes all of the nerves in your body to become hypersensitive and over-excitable, often resultin
What do you call a veterinarian who can only take care of one species? A physician.
"With this new device, we don't just limit ourselves to thinking about cloaks as a way of preventing somebody from getting information, but also as a way to enable communication," says Joseph Lukens, an electrical engineer at Purdue. "One guy see
He thought, "There has gotta be something that will fix this technically," Tibbitts recalled to Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric, "and this feeling ?" it just wouldn't let go." He had recently sold his space company, Starsys Research Corp.
A new distance record has been set in the strange world of quantum teleportation.
Fibers spun from carbon nanotubes have the conductivity of copper and the strength of advanced composites.
Chemical and nanoengineers at Rice University have become the first team to create long (hundreds of meters), macroscopic, mass-producible carbon nanotube thread.
A new genetic therapy that helped blind mice and dogs respond to light stimulus could restore sight to people who suffer from diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa (a gradual loss of vision from periphery inwards).
It turns out we have a lot left to learn about stem cells.

"We have conducted a major Danish study, in which we have examined the connection between genes associated with permanent low levels of vitamin D and mortality. We can see that genes associated with low vitamin D levels involve an increased mortali
