SCIENCE - TECHNOLOGY - NATURE
TELECOMMUNICATIONS NETWORKS COULD HELP SCIENTISTS SYNC UP TELESCOPES
Two (or more) telescopes are far better than one.
LUNGS: FACTS, FUNCTION AND DISEASES
Lungs are sacks of tissue located just below the rib cage and above the diaphragm. They are an important part of the respiratory system and waste management for the body.
A person's lungs are not the same size.
SCIENTISTS IDENTIFIED “ANXIETY CELLS” IN THE BRAIN BY SWITCHING THEM ON AND OFF
In a new study, neuroscientists identified "anxiety cells" in the hippocampus of mice. The researchers believe it's likely that these cells also exist in the human brain, and understanding them could lead to better treatment for anxiety disorders.
WHEN IT COMES TO NATURAL DISASTERS, TECHNOLOGY HAS AN UNAVOIDABLE DARK SIDE
Companies arrive quicker at disaster sites, experimental technology in tow. That might not be great in the long run.
EXPERTS ANSWER: SHOULD YOU BE ALLOWED TO CREATE YOUR OWN CLONE?
Monkeys today. Humans tomorrow?
CAN OWLS DO WHAT KUSHNER CAN'T — FOSTER PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST?
An initiative using barn owls to control agricultural pests has accomplished what real estate developer and political neophyte Jared Kushner could not — nurture an amicable, long-term collaboration that crosses borders in the Middle East.
YOUR FUTURE DOCTOR MAY NOT BE HUMAN. THIS IS THE RISE OF AI IN MEDICINE.
From mental health apps to robot surgeons, artificial intelligence is already changing the practice of medicine.
BRAIN SCANS CAN REVEAL WHO YOUR TRUE FRIENDS ARE
If you want to find out who your true friends are, channel surf with them.
A new study finds that close friends react to spontaneous stimuli, such as TV channels flicking by, with remarkably similar thought processes.
ANTIBIOTIC CONSIDERED OBSOLETE MAY FIND NEW USE AGAINST SUPERBUGS
Over the last 30 years, antibiotic resistance has emerged as a global public health issue. Despite that, just one new class of antibiotic drugs has been introduced in that time. A new study from the University of Queensland re-analyzed a 40-year-old drug believed to be obsolete in hopes it could replace antibiotics that have become ineffective against drug-resistant bacteria.
FRIENDS REALLY ARE ON SAME WAVELENGTH, BRAIN SCANS SHOW
It is often said that good friends are on the same wavelength, but now scientists
have proven it is true.
