New study improves our understanding of brain function

Researchers are one-step closer to understanding the brain and its function, following some pioneering experiments. This new insight could help those affected by strokes.

Video gamers help to design new proteins

Video gamers have helped to design brand new proteins by playing an interactive on-line application called Foldit. Through this, citizen scientists are aiding protein researchers create novel vaccines and cancer therapies.

New form of self-healing material discovered by scientists

Japanese scientists have discovered a new form of self-healing material. The substance, which is based on ethylene, demonstrates several useful properties such as ‘shape memory’, as well as the ability to self-repair.

Essential Science: World Wide Web reveals protein secrets

What can the structure of the World Wide Web tell scientists about protein structures? Quite a bit according to Ohio State University researchers. The scientists have discovered molecular 'add-ons' that customize key protein interfaces.

Biomarker for concussion discovered

After someone has been involved in an accident, or following a tough session on the sports field, assessing concussion is difficult for it takes time for symptoms to emerge. For earlier detection scientists have discovered a biomarker.

The brains of people who lie regularly change

London - The more a person lies, the more their brain becomes desensitized to lying, according to a new study. Whether it is scientific, political or financial fraud, or infidelity, the brain can adapt to the continued lying so the process becomes easier.

Do our bodies really have more microbes than human cells?

Pick up a text book on microbiology or human physiology. Chances are you’ll stumble across a reference to the number of microorganisms in the human body exceeding the number of cells ten-fold. But is this correct?

Environment affects immunity more than genetics

A new study into twins reveals that environmental factors play a greater role in shaping individual immunity than genetic ones.

Human cells found to have sensory capability

Copenhagen - A new study has found that cells possess finger-like projections that are used to sense the external environment. These projections can detect the chemical environment and they can "feel" the through ultrasensitive sensors.

Solving the cellular conundrum, seeing how cells grow

Cell division has been part and parcel of our understanding of science for over a century. However, what exactly causes cells to divide? This is still a conundrum for scientists.

New light shed on emotional fear

Bad experiences and unpleasant events can remain etched into the brain for a person’s entire life. A new study has identified the brain processes at work that enable ‘bad thoughts’ to remain.

Aiding semiconductors through human noise

Understanding how human cells respond to “noise” could lead to advances with the functionality of semiconductor chips, according to an interesting new research project.

Can genes be turned off to help fight cancer?

Researchers based at UC San Francisco have found ways to turn off genes as a means to slow down the rate of diseases like cancer.

Biochemistry’s cellular saint: Shüssler’s legacy lives on
