After decades of effort, scientists are finally figuring out how insects develop resistance to environmentally friendly farming practices – such as crop rotation – that are designed to kill them. The researchers say their insights will help develop more sustainable agricultural practices.
Scientists have — for the first time — documented the formation of a newly learned concept inside the brain, which shows that it occurs in the same brain areas for everyone.
There are a lot fewer trans fats in the nation's food than there were a decade ago, but the Obama administration is moving toward getting rid of them almost entirely.
The adoption of these disposable NPWT devices will be primarily driven by their drastically reduced costs and expanding applications.
The company's fabric is comprised of programmable fibers.
LaVison BioTec has upgraded its UltraMicroscope and TriM Scope II intra-vital two-photon microscopes with multiple new developments. One is a beam multiplexer for two-photon laser scanning microscopes to generate a four foci line pattern in the specimen.
Scientists have grown a tiny group of brain cells that can be induced to fall asleep, wake up and even show rebound sleep after "staying up late."The study - the first to document that sleep originates in small neural networks - opens the door to deeper understanding of the genetic, molecular and electrical aspects underlying sleep disorders.
An international team of researchers has developed a method of fabricating nanoscale electronic scaffolds that can be injected via syringe. The scaffolds can then be connected to devices and used to monitor neural activity, stimulate tissues, or even promote regeneration of neurons.
An international team has identified an unexpectedly general set of rules that determine which molecules can cause the immune system to become vulnerable to the autoimmune disorders lupus and psoriasis. The discovery could lead to new ways of treating the disorders.
Scientists have developed a computational method to investigate the relationship between birth month and disease risk. The researchers used this algorithm to examine New York City medical databases and found 55 diseases that correlated with the season of birth.
Instruments for laboratory fluidics include syringe, peristaltic and continuous flow pumps for a wide variety of applications, from mass spectrometry calibration to drug and nutritional studies. In the 21st century, advances in the sciences that involve fluidics are driving the need for more precise observations by laboratory researchers. It is vital that these researchers have access to the best and most advanced instrumentation.
Staphylococcus aureus, also known as the dreaded Staph bacteria that can cause lethal infections, is commonly found in the human nose. The germ is also estimated to cause infections killing 18,000 people every year in the U.S. But the potentially deadly unwelcome guests are a product of environment, not genes – and can be pushed out by benign bacteria, according to an international study of twins.
Scientists have discovered a previously unknown connection between the brain and immune system that could result in drastic breakthroughs in treating diseases, including Alzheimer’s.
Aspect Imaging offers the M2 3D MR-based histology system for in vivo and ex vivo toxicological imaging. The system is a compact, high-performance MRI instrument for high-throughput in vivo and ex vivo imaging of pre-clinical samples.
A team of neuroscientists has determined how a pair of growth factor molecules contributes to long-term memory formation, a finding that appears in the journal Neuron.
