The Journal of the American Medicine Association published a study that linked a binocular iPad game to treatment of amblyopia in children. Amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, affects three percent of people in the U.S. and is the primary reason for monocular visual impairment in children.
Artificial pancreas projects soon to be released
But we have no time to be shocked. It is now a more important time than ever for scientists to be more involved in the political process and in life outside of the lab.
As the most abundant element on the planet, carbon has consistently demonstrated its incredible diversity and seemingly infinite potential applications. In fact, a recent report by a team of chemists and engineers of Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has described the synthesis of a new, versatile material they call “diamond nanothread” (DNT).
A recent article published in Astronomy & Astrophysics found the farthest very high energy gamma source detected to date. About seven billion years ago, an explosion occurred at a black hole in the center of a galaxy.
The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship is national award designed to recognize students with exceptional promise in research in a STEM field. Every undergraduate university in the United States may nominate four undergraduates.
Excited for an extra hour of sleep? A recent study suggests that maybe we should reconsider turning back our clocks this November.
Engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have repurposed spinach as a form of terrorism-prevention technology. ‘
According to a new study published by the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, male birth control was tested for the first time. A new way of preventing pregnancies, these “birth control shots” were given to sexually active males.
Studying mitochondrial DNA may be the key to unlocking autism spectrum disorder (ASD) risk. New research suggests that mutations in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) may correlate with neurodevelopmental disorders like ASD.
A fossil hunter in East Sussex, England dug up a seemingly plain and ordinary brown pebble that has now officially been confirmed as fossilized brain tissue from a dinosaur in 2004. Although it took more than a decade for scientists to categorize the fossil, the tissue is the first fossilized dinosaur brain matter that has ever been discovered.
To address this goal, we need tools that enable us to label specific neurons with molecules of interest. Such molecules might allow us to see the entire neuron, how it might connect to other neurons or even change the activity of the neuron to determine its function in a specific behavior.
A recent assessment conducted by researchers at Cardiff University has identified a potential solution to self-treating diabetes. The answer is mobile phone applications.
As health care expenditures rise, policy makers and administrators are scrambling to find ways to cut costs. The results of a recently published study indicate that it’s possible for hospitals to decrease expenditures without compromising the quality of patient care by adding more physicians’ assistants (PAs).
The United States Navy’s latest addition to its battleship fleet, the USS Zumwalt, is the largest and most technologically advanced warship. The vessel was commissioned, or officially placed into active service in Baltimore on Oct. 15.
In 2011, the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to three physicists for their discovery that confirmed that not only was the universe expanding, but also that it was doing so at an accelerated rate driven by the repulsive force of the strange and elusive substance, dark energy.
In the United States, brain cancer has historically had a high death rate, with 66.5 percent of patients dying within five years of their diagnoses.
“The impossibility of today is tomorrow’s possibility,” Moran Cerf, a professor from Northwestern University (NU), announced during his keynote presentation at the Oct. 25 Nu Rho Psi Undergraduate Research Symposium.
Surveying the food in the Fresh Food Café, you see that juicy sausage and mouth-watering bacon. All these processed meats, containing high levels of nitrates and nitrites, are commonly known to be correlated with cancer and heart diseases. On top of that, these nitrate-containing foods have been recently identified as triggering headaches.
Nevertheless, given that Brainwave is a science-focused column, I will review the iPad Pro not so much as an entertainment or educational device but rather as a device for academic scientists.
