Researchers at MIT have uncovered a new potential treatment for reversing memory loss of Alzheimer's sufferers. The technique targets an enzyme known as HDAC2, which blocks genes vital to memory formation in Alzheimer's patients, and so far it has shown promise in tests in mice...Continue Reading Scientists unclog genetic brain blockade in mice with Alzheimer'sCategory: MedicalTags: A
Every fundamental particle in the universe has an antiparticle, which has the same mass but the opposite charge. If a particle should ever meet its antiparticle, the two would annihilate each other in a flash of energy. But it's long been theorized that there's an exception to the rule, with certain particles that are actually their own antiparticles. Now, scientists from Stanford and the Uni
A group of scientists from California have developed a series of organic electronic components that will harmlessly dissolve into their environment after use. Read more
the literal definition of a viral movie.The post scientists encode a movie in bacterial DNA appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Peter Parker take note, architects and chemists at the University of Cambridge have come up with an artificial spider silk that is strong, super-stretchy, non-toxic, and sustainable, yet is made from a material that is 98 percent water. The new artificial fiber is spun from hydrogel at room temperature and is less expensive to produce that current alternatives, yet possesses many of the prope
Growing human skin in the laboratory has advanced to the point where it's used to create skin grafts for burn victims, but it hasn't been possible to do the same with non-mammals – until now. Scientists led by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) have successfully reconstructed the skin of a green sea turtle as part of a study to learn more about a virus infection that threatens the end
Dutch water company SPA Nederland believes in the purity of their product. To prove how clean and clear their water is, they employed scientists to use a drop of SPA Nederland water as a camera lens. It sounds crazy, right? Ultimately, anything can act as a functional lens so long as it can refract light to converge at a single point. The scientists in the video below placed an aperture diaphragm
Narwhals are famous for their long ivory tusks, which reach lengths of up to nine feet. Documentary filmmaker Adam Ravetch and Fisheries and Oceans Canada used video captured by drones to discover a previously unknown use for the tusk: it's used to tap and stun fish before eating them.
scientists in japan seem jave found an alternative way of pollinating flowers, in the form of a $100 drone from amazon. The post japanese scientists artificially pollinate flowers with a bee-drone appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Untangling a tightly wound knot can be a difficult task when dealing with shoelaces, but untangling a molecular knot produced by scientists at the University of Manchester would likely bring a whole new level of frustration. Measuring roughly 20 nanometers long, its creators claim it is the most tightly knotted physical structure ever known and could lead to the development of new advanced ma is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
