The Cleveland Clinic recently unveiled their annual Top 10 Medical Innovations for 2015– a list that casts an optimistic light on up-and-coming healthcare advances that may reach consumers next year.
A good book recreates the world so robustly that it activates some of the same brain regions that “everyday life” does, according to a recent PLOS One study. In the study, innovative MRI analyses of people reading a richly imaginative book showed movement of characters occurring in a brain region where others’ motions are processed in the real world.
Psychopaths generally do not feel fear and fail to consider the emotions of others, or reflect upon their behavior — traits that make them notoriously difficult to treat.
Three exceptional women were given awards for their achievements and contributions to the scientific community at the 2014 ASCB (American Society for Cell Biology) meeting recently held in Philadelphia, Pa.
A novel therapeutic to fight colon cancer by using the bacteria primarily responsible for causing strep throat is being explored in the labs of John McCormick of the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada.
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.
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.
Using a gene-editing system originally developed to delete specific genes, researchers have now shown that they can reliably turn on any gene of their choosing in living cells.
While many different combinations of genetic traits can cause autism, brains affected by autism share a pattern of ramped-up immune responses, an analysis of data from autopsied human brains revealed.
The ixGen Predesigned Gene Capture Pools and Plates from IDT are the latest addition to IDT’s growing portfolio of high quality, customizable next generation sequencing products.
One of the recurring themes of the 2014 Forbes Healthcare Summit was that smartphones and mobile apps would play a larger role in the industry. However, the safety and security of these platforms are being debated. Nanthealth’s CEO Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong feels he may have a solution.
For the first time, scientists report the development of a stretchable “electronic skin” closely modeled after our own that can detect not just pressure, but also what direction it’s coming from.
Scientists have developed a mathematical theory–based on roundworm foraging that predicts how animals decide to switch from localized to very broad searching.
Philanthropist and entrepreneur Paul G. Allen announced a commitment of $100 million to create the Allen Institute for Cell Science in Seattle. The Allen Institute for Cell Science will take a multidisciplinary, team science-driven approach to understanding a fundamental and yet elusive question in cell science.
The NEXTflex 18S ITS Amplicon-Seq Kit from Bioo Scientific simplifies the preparation of multiplexed amplicon libraries spanning the hypervariable Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) region of eukaryotic 18S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes.
New research in robotics might help with stroke rehabilitation, guide wheelchairs, and assist children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Projects investigating co-robotics are the focus of new funding from the National Institutes of Health.
The John J. Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values at the University of Notre Dame has released its annual list of emerging ethical dilemmas and policy issues in science and technology for 2015.
Forbes kicked off the 2014 Healthcare Summit with a session titled, “Drug Development in A Time of Ebola,” where Forbes senior editor Matthew Herper interviewed Edward Cox and Lucianna Borio, two high-ranking officials at the FDA.
In a new study, researchers demonstrated an association between smoking and loss of the Y chromosome in blood cells. The researchers have previously shown that loss of the Y chromosome is linked to cancer.
If you could take a blood test that could detect — with nearly 100% accuracy — whether you were genetically destined to get Alzheimer’s disease, would you take that test? Read more...
IBM has engineered a way for everyone to join the fight against Ebola - by donating processing time on their personal computers, phones or tablets to researchers. Read more...
The brain is so exquisitely sensitive to language that it only takes six weeks of learning Chinese for the neurons of English speakers to rewire. And those whose brains are fully bilingual are more facile at learning generally.
