Scientists may have finally cracked the code to restoring temperature sensing with the help of an unexpected guest: a pit viper. In a surprising twist, the new material appears to be something people have been encountering in their everyday life.
Ambrosia is owned by Jesse Karmazin, who has a medical degree in Princeton but is not licensed to practice medicine.
Ever wonder why our blood and other liquids in our body do not leak out and leave us all dried up? According to scientists, despite the fact our skin cells die, dry up, and fall off every minute of every day, it does not seem to create holes that would allow liquids inside the body to leak out.
SkinTrack is a technology currently being developed by the Carngie Mellon University to enhance the human and computer interaction.
Summer not only means hitting the beach and taking out of town trips, but it also means more exposure to skin damage.
Researchers are getting closer to making artificial personalized organs as they succeeded in developing an artificial skin--complete with real skin functions, such as hair growth, sweat production and protective oil secretion.
A new study revealed face mites – microscopic animals that live on our faces and in our hair – evolved along side humans. Moreover, people from different parts of the world host different mite lineages that follow families through generations.
Biologists recently discovered skin proteins shared by humans and turtles which developed in a common ancestor roughly 310 million years ago.
Bacteria found on some frogs' skin naturally protects the amphibian from a deadly skin disease that is already affecting 500 species of amphibians worldwide.
A new study sheds light on the evolution of tooth enamel tissue. It turns out that the enamel protecting human teeth originated in the scales of ancient fish.
Squid are known as masters of disguise, and now their unique abilities are inspiring new camouflaging materials, according to a recent study.
Octopuses have long been hailed as masters of camouflage, able to change the color, pattern and texture of their skin. Now, it seems that these cephalopods not only use their skin as a means of disguise and even communication, but also as a way to "see" light.
When we think of skin cancer, sunlight usually comes to mind. But an interesting new study reveals that skin damage is possible even in the dark, leaving no place safe.
Thanks to a new full-color display technology, scientists are now one step closer to creating artificial "squid skin" - camouflaging metamaterials that can "see" colors and automatically blend into the background.
