Researchers have advanced a robotic surgical technique to successfully access a previously unreachable area of the head and neck.
A hard hit to the chest can cause an irregular heartbeat that may lead to death even days after the impact.
Researchers at The University of Western Australia have found that that brain stimulation may help retrain unhelpful cognitive habits associated with anxiety and depression.
The compact, lightweight CM-10MP mini viewing cabinet is perfect for any type of laboratory application requiring high-contrast fluorescence analysis.
A new study found that the brains of obese children literally light up differently when tasting sugar. This elevated sense of “food reward” could mean some children have brain circuitries that predispose them to crave more sugar throughout life.
After a massive international effort to sequence and compare the entire genomes of 48 species of birds representing every major order of the bird family tree, scientists discovered that birds and humans use essentially the same genes to speak.
A species of small fish uses a homemade coral-scented cologne to hide from predators, a new study has shown, providing the first evidence of chemical camouflage from diet in fish.
In a triumph for cell biology, researchers have assembled the first high-resolution, 3-D maps of entire folded genomes and found a structural basis for gene regulation, a kind of “genomic origami” that allows the same genome to produce different types of cells.
It’s well known that chemotherapy helps fight cancer. It’s also known that it wreaks havoc on normal, healthy cells. Scientists are closer to discovering a possible way to boost healthy cell production in cancer patients as they receive chemotherapy.
Researchers believe they’re on track to solve the mystery of weight gain – and it has nothing to do with indulging in holiday eggnog. They discovered that a protein, Thy1, has a fundamental role in controlling whether a primitive cell decides to become a fat cell, making Thy1 a possible therapeutic target.
Researchers have found new evidence that explains how some aspects of our personality may affect our health and wellbeing, supporting long-observed associations between aspects of human character, physical health and longevity.
The dictionary definition that a “picture is a representation of a person or scene” just doesn’t apply to those images produced in scientific research and from clinical specimens. It would be more accurate to describe these images in one word: artifact.
The Genetics Policy Institute (GPI) and the Regenerative Medicine Foundation (RMF) will merge, the leaders of both organizations announced at the opening session of the 10th Annual World Stem Cell Summit (WSCS).
Researchers have devised a way to replace the knee’s protective lining, called the meniscus, using a personalized 3-D-printed implant, or scaffold, infused with human growth factors that prompt the body to regenerate the lining on its own.
