In an advance that could dramatically shrink particle accelerators for science and medicine, researchers used a laser to accelerate electrons at a rate 10 times higher than conventional technology in a nanostructured glass chip smaller than a grain...
Kevin Kelly: The Improbable is the New Normal "The improbable consists of more than just accidents. The internets are also brimming with improbable feats of performance — someone who can run up a side...
London, UK (SPX) Sep 24, 2013 - A new technique that allows scientists to measure the electrical activity in the communication junctions of the nervous systems has been developed by a researcher at Queen Mary University of London.
As the electric grid gets smarter, it is sending vast quantities of data to utility companies that have no idea what to do with it, according to electric industry experts who gathered in Chicago this morning.
When a particular circuit in the brain is stimulated, it causes mice to voraciously gorge on food even though they are well fed, and deactivating this circuit keeps starving mice from eating, a new study shows.
The key to programming bacteria to follow orders has been found in its protein production. Researchers have learned that by using more rare words, or codons, near the start of a gene, they can remove roadblocks to protein production.
(Phys.org) —Fluorescence imaging is the most widely used method for analyzing the molecular composition of biological specimens. Target molecules, when they are present, can be 'tagged' with a fluorescent label and made visible.
