Brains are Different on Macs

Brains are Different on Macs | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

German researchers Ed Gronenschild and colleagues took a set of 30 brains and got FreeSurfer to estimate the size and thickness of various structures. Then they did the same thing, on the exact same brains, with a different version of the software.

They found substantial differences in regional volumes, depending upon the version of FreeSurfer used. Running the same version of the software on a Mac vs a PC also created differences, and even the version of Mac OS had an impact.

About the cover : The surface of a mosquito egg

About the cover : The surface of a mosquito egg | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

Superhydrophobic Swimming Beauty I - The EMBO Journal Cover Contest 2012 has its first winner! This hand-coloured scanning electron micrograph was the favourite of the jury in the section "Best Scientific Image". The image shows the surface of a mosquito egg (from Culex pipiens), which generates a water repellent network by connecting microscopically small structures to trap a thin layer of air.

RoboBees Project

RoboBees Project | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

The researchers are working on creating robotic bees that fly autonomously and coordinate activities amongst themselves and the hive, much like real bees. The research team aims to drive research in compact, high-energy power sources, ultra-low-power computing and the design of distributed algorithms for multi-agent systems. Furthermore, the RoboBees created will provide unique insights into how Mother Nature conjures such elegant solutions to solve complex problems.

Computer Program 'Evolves' Music From Noise

Computer Program 'Evolves' Music From Noise | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

From Mozart to the Beatles, music evolves as listeners get used to sounds they initially find strange or even shocking. As trailblazing music becomes mainstream, artists strike out in new directions. But in a new study, a computer program shows how listeners drive music to evolve in a certain way. Although the resulting strains are hardly Don Giovanni, the finding shows how users' tastes exert their own kind of natural selection, nudging tunes to evolve out of noise.

Forget Google Glasses: Our ‘Smart Phones’ Will Soon Be Contact Lenses

Forget Google Glasses: Our ‘Smart Phones’ Will Soon Be Contact Lenses | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

You wake up in the morning, rub your sleepy eyes. As you’re getting ready to face the day you put in your contact lens, which will make the Internet and all your files, playlists, GPS, favorite apps, and addicting games literally available with the blink of an eye. Scientists are already at the animal testing phase of the technology that will make this possible.
