Plasma from human umbilical cords and younger mice have surprisingly proven to improve cognitive function of old mice.
Everyone is sure to have tried methods and techniques to fight stress and anxiety. They may not be helpful in some cases, but finding ways to manage stress generates a lot of relief in a lot of people.
After battery fires sparked the recall of almost two million Samsung Galaxy Note7 smartphones, researchers from Stanford University have found a way to develop safer alternatives to flammable liquid electrolytes used in lithium-ion batteries. The volatile liquids utilized in most electronic devices could be replaced by solid electrolytes. The list of almost two dozen electrolytes was inspired by techniques adapted from artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.
Are our climate change efforts changing anything? The rising concentration of methane in the atmosphere, now increasing at a faster rate than any period in the last 20 years, is becoming a great threat to the environment – and a much more difficult problem to solve.
Researchers from Stanford University have found a way to help explain how animals generate enough lift to fly and what this could mean for the way flying robots and drones are designed.
A team of Stanford scientists has discovered an unusual way to boost the performance of platinum catalysts that help generate energy in fuel cells: a nanosize squeeze.
It appears the problem with fake news on the internet is worse than we thought. A new Stanford study shows that teenagers are likely to absorb social media content without considering its source.
What would you get if you cross ibuprofen with aspirin? No one is sure, but a team of MIT researchers headed by Alán Aspuru-Guzik has developed an artificial intelligence program that could provide an answer to this by recommending a molecular structure that amalgamates properties of both the medications.
Technology has greatly affected our lives over the years. Now, a study from Stanford University has revealed how artificial intelligence (A.I.) may change people's lifestyle -- from transportation, employment, health and household chores -- by the year 2030.
There are days so scorchingly hot that it seems like a good idea to wrap one’s self in ice. Well, scientists have made the next best thing: plastic clothing to keep you cool and ward off the sweaty armpits for the entire day. A team of researchers from Stanford University found that polyethylene -- known to be the most common plastic in the planet -- is an effective textile material in beating the heat.
Extreme winters, both warm Western ones and cold Eastern ones, have become increasingly common thanks to human caused climate change.
Called "extremophiles," certain small fish are predisposed to remain lively and (well) alive in toxic waters when other fish cannot do so.
Millions of lab mice suffer from an infectious skin disease known as ulcerative dermatitis. However, researchers from Stanford University have come up with a novel cure – pedicures – that is cost effective and keeps the rodent subjects from having to be euthanized, the ultimate plus for reseachers.
