Visual perception improved by magnetic stimulation

Visual perception improved by magnetic stimulation | Science in Europe | Scoop.it

What we see is not always what we get. In fact, contrary to popular belief, people with perfect eyesight do not really perceive everything that happens before them. The brain simply won't allow it. It does this so that we don't overload our senses, and in fact the brain frequently 'buffers' our perception, allowing us to register what it deems appropriate. This process is likened to a digital transmission of images whereby an initial visual scan is made, and then, to reduce data transmissions, only changes to the initial visual scan are transmitted.

Better Alzheimer's detection: new EU-funded project to develop nanoscope

Better Alzheimer's detection: new EU-funded project to develop nanoscope | Science in Europe | Scoop.it

A new research project that will pioneer a nanoscope to screen patient cells and potentially help with the early detection of Alzheimer's disease has just kicked off.

 

With a boost of more than EUR 4 million in funding from the 'Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies' Theme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), the LANIR ('Label free nanoscopy using infra red') project will bring together researchers from 11 partner institutes across Belgium, Germany, Ireland, France, Italy and Romania. The consortium is made up of both small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) and academic partners.

Melting glaciers pose threat to water supply: study

Melting glaciers pose threat to water supply: study | Science in Europe | Scoop.it

The melting of small glaciers around the world will wreak havoc with the water supply for various towns in valleys nourished by the rivers that flow down from surrounding mountains, a new international study predicts. Scientists estimate that freshwater fauna is at risk from the retreating ice. The findings, published in the journal Nature Climate Change, shed fresh light on the impact of global thawing on biodiversity in watercourses, something that has never before been measured.

Research intelligence - Biologist finds way through Brussels maze | Science in Europe | Scoop.it

Anne Glover may have little trouble understanding the intricate mechanisms of microbiology, but Europe's first chief scientific adviser admits that the "big, complex beast" of the European Commission is proving more of a challenge to figure out.

 

"I am a very optimistic person and in my first week in Brussels I set myself the challenge of understanding how the commission works by the end of my appointment in 2014," the professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of Aberdeen told Times Higher Education. "By week two I had reduced my expectations."
