Eduardo Fernandez, director of neuroengineering at the University of Miguel Hernandez, Spain has presented a particularly unique approach to cure blindness. His method uses technology embedded directly in the rear of the brain as opposed to previous techniques which usually involved prosthetic eyes or retinas. The mechanism uses a modified pair of glasses fitted with […]

Chemists at MIT have successfully formulated a technique to synthesize polymers that disintegrate more readily in the body and environment. Polymers created by a standard chemical reaction called ring-opening metathesis polymerisation (ROMP), although extremely useful, do not break down easily in natural environments. The research team at MIT has come up with a way to […]

Three individual studies have been able to unearth a shocking discovery about tumour cells – they can attach themselves, and feed off, the neurons in the brain. This revelation might be another clue in understanding the labyrinth of tumours, and consequently allowing researchers to look at this puzzle from another perspective. Brain cancers called gliomas, […]

In the context of wave particle duality just like light has “particles” called photons, sound also has particles called phonons. These particles, in-fact, are quasiparticles – a phenomenon that occurs when a microscopically complicated system behaves as if it were a particle. A quantum computer can deliver technology’s long-promised ability to help scientists do things […]

Researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and the University of Washington, USA have invented a device that can control neural circuits using a tiny brain implant controlled by a smartphone. The scientists, publishing in Nature Biomedical Engineering, believe the device can speed up efforts to uncover brain diseases such as […]

With the world population estimated to reach a stunning 10 billion by 2050, 60 to 80 percent more food will be needed to feed everybody. This challenge will become even more formidable due to climate change and diseases that affect our crops over time. Plant breeding, however, is a painstakingly slow process and it takes […]

Microscopic pieces of plastic pollution were discovered on sea surfaces years ago. However, now, when an attempt was made to search a section of ocean thoroughly, researchers were appalled to find that deep water harbored a greater density of these microplastics than the surface. Shockingly, more microplastic is found in the depths of the seemingly […]
