The cell functioning includes the interaction of proteins within the cell. The proteins dance with a partner to respond to signals and regulate each other’s activities. Mitochondria are known as the cell’s powerhouse because it is responsible for extracting energy from food through cellular respiration. The energy is released in the form of adenosine triphosphate…
Thanks to optical communication, it becomes possible to transfer information over very long distances using light or radio waves. The technology has applications such as space communication and fiber optic cables for internet traffic. But, it has a limitation- as it uses light to transfer information between two distant points, it loses power along the…
Alzheimer’s disease is diagnosed on the basis of a combination of subjective and objective reports of cognitive decline involving memory tests administered in a clinic. These tests are prone to different biases, including assessment anxiety, yet also require verbal and written communication abilities, making them ineffective. Identification of Alzheimer’s at an early stage could help…
Scientists at the Ohio State University have discovered the next generation of reservoir computing that can solve the hardest hard computer problems. This new computing makes reservoir computing 33 and a million times faster. Scientists solved a complex computing problem in less than a second on a desktop computer with such speed. Plus, it requires…
Mars has no liquid water on its surface today. The reason maybe its small size, suggests a new study by from Washington University in St. Louis. Several studies and analyses on Martian meteorites suggest that Mars was once enriched with Water. What’s more, NASA’s Viking orbiter spacecraft and the Curiosity and Perseverance rovers on the…
Bumblebees create the electrical change to stimulate flowers to release sweet scents, suggests a new study from the University of Bristol. This charge helps pollen stick to them and signifies their presence in the flower they visit. The electrical charge created by the bumblebee must be around 120 picoCoulombs (PC. However, this is a minimal…
Gadolinium contrast medium is used in about 1 in 3 MRI scans to improve the clarity of the images or pictures of your body’s internal structures. This improves the diagnostic accuracy of the MRI scan. A new study by Rice University engineers suggests that the Gadolinium-based contrast agents in MRI could be improved. Engineers studied…
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is eczema that affects 13% of children and 10% of adults. Such patients have super sensitive skin and a decreased threshold for irritation. There is currently no Dermatitis Treatment. An old study published in the journal Trials suggests that ‘The foundation of all treatment is the regular use of leave-on emollients to…
Many previous studies have highlighted the role of gut microbiota in the development of mental illness. A new study suggests that people with mental illnesses like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and psychosis tend to have lower faecalibacterium and coprococcus. The faecalibacterium and coprococcus are two types of bacteria that have an anti-inflammatory effect within the…
Using just a small applied voltage, MIT scientists and elsewhere have developed a method to switch the orientation of magnets. They created a way to switch the magnetic polarity of a ferrimagnet 180 degrees. The discovery could usher in a new era of ferrimagnetic logic and data storage devices. Scientists developed this new system using…
