Urbanization has a very significant effect on evolution, leading to change in functioning ecosystems.
A new imaging technique developed by researchers at the University Of Rochester Medical Center could lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, preventing potential vision loss.
Altered dopamine receptors, and not just the excess weight alone, might be the reason why obese individuals tends to move a little or mostly inactive.
Researchers have developed a form of synthetic cardiac stem cell. These stem cells appear to offer therapeutic benefits that can be compared to those from natural stem cells and could even replace some of the risks associated with stem cell therapies.
While people do believe the biggest impact of machine learning lies in developments in the Silicon Valley, we may all be wrong.
Researchers identified a key cellular protein that could potentially be exploited to work as a possible treatment for neurodegenerative diseases, such as Huntington's, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
French scientists made a massive breakthrough in the realm of neuroscience when they found evidence that a brainless slime called the Physarum polycephalum can learn how to avoid unpleasant stimuli after repeated trials.
The California Academy of Sciences has described 133 new plant and animal species, including one bee fly, 43 ants, 36 beetles, one sand wasp, four spiders, six plants, 23 fishes, one eel, one shark, seven nudibranchs, five fossil urchins (and one fossil sand dollar), one coral, one skate, and one African lizard. Over a dozen Academy scientists and international collaborators collaborated on the endeavor that would aid the environmental community's conservation efforts.
It has always been an interesting topic to figure out how our brains not only receive but also process information amid the booming noise in parties. With the booze, the blinking lights, and the ridiculously loud music, it is a wonder how our brains keep up with conversations with too much to process.
A lot of people consider 2016 to be a very bad year in terms of news, but a lot of technological improvements happened regardless. Now some are convinced that the first true brain-to-brain communication in people could start next year, especially due to huge recent advances.
Clostridium perfringens responsible for the recent food contamination that killed three people and sent over two dozen other to hospitals.
A new breakthrough in medicine shows that stem cells coming from pregnant women's amniotic fluids can be the key treatment for osteoporosis and other bone-related conditions. Scientists found that stem cell infusion could treat not only those who suffer from osteoporosis but also rare bone conditions in infants, brittle bone diseases in the elderly, and bone mass loss among astronauts.
The Galápagos Islands are well known for their biodiversity, housing plants, and animals that aren't found anywhere else on earth. For years, scientists have been trying to figure out the origin and time frame of this phenomenon and at last, a study published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters has the answer.
The calendar is a dreadful object. It reminds us of schedules, appointments, and other matters of the day, month, or year that had to be done. But what if we're looking at it all wrong?
Scientists are baffled why many bodies discovered of primitive men showed quite healthy teeth even in their old age. In their search for answers, newfound evidence showed that cavemen actually took care of their mouths and used toothpick-like sticks to clean their teeth.
