Neurobiologists restore youthful vigor to adult mouse brains

Neurobiologists restore youthful vigor to adult mouse brains | Science Records | Scoop.it
Researchers wanted to know whether the flexibility of the juvenile brain could be restored to the adult brain. Apparently, it can: They've successfully re-created a critical juvenile period in the brains of adult mice. In other words, the researchers have reactivated brain plasticity -- the rapid and robust changes in neural pathways and synapses as a result of learning and experience.

Efficiency record for black silicon solar cells jumps to 22.1% | Science Records | Scoop.it
Researchers have obtained the record-breaking efficiency of 22.1 percent efficiency on nanostructured silicon solar cells. An almost 4 percent absolute increase to their previous record was achieved by applying a thin passivating film on the nanostructures and by integrating all metal contacts on the back side of the cell.
