Pentagon is Funding Ultrasound Devices That Prevent Tissue Death After Spinal Cord Injuries

Johns Hopkins is busy on an ambitious development plan for a product that would protect against tissue damage resulting from spinal cord injuries—especially for soldiers who get wounded in the field, but for the public, as well. The $13.5 million program will aim to develop implantable ultrasound devices that could revolutionize care for the 17,000 […]

Ingestible capsule that could help demystify the gut-brain axis

A team of experts from engineering, neuroscience, applied microbiology, and physics has been making headway on building a platform that can monitor and model the real-time processing of gut microbiome serotonin activity.

Supergene discovery leads to new knowledge of fire ants

A unique study conducted by entomologists led to the discovery of a distinctive supergene in fire ant colonies that determines whether young queen ants will leave their birth colony to start their own new colony or if they will join one with multiple queens.

New Research Shows Why Crows Are So Intelligent And Even Self-Aware, Just Like Us

Crows, rooks, and ravens, a family of birds known as corvids, are pretty dang smart. In some ways, there are crows as smart as first graders. In 2014, a famous ornithological accomplishment saw New Caledonian crows, who as outlined in Jennifer Ackerman’s brilliant work The Genius of Birds, are possibly the smartest of their race, […]

The Biden-Harris Energy Plan Is About Hoodwinking Voters

Last year, the Democratic Party’s elective brain transplant edged toward the first incision. On the operating table lay the party’s establishment, its skull encircled neatly with cut-here lines. The donor’s brain was that of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), connecting the…

Could Electromagnetic Fields Treat Diabetes? These Scientists Think So

Researchers may have discovered a safe new way to manage blood sugar non-invasively. Exposing diabetic mice to a combination of static electric and magnetic fields for a few hours per day normalizes blood sugar and insulin resistance, researchers at the University of Iowa have found. The unexpected and surprising discovery raises the possibility of using […]

Mollusks and Algae Could Form the Sustainable Diet of the Future

At a time when food production is one of the biggest climate culprits, we need to seek out new food sources which can nourish us and, at the same time, not overburden the planet. More and more people are opting to become vegetarians or, even more radically, vegans. However, the large majority of people find […]

The world’s first successful identification and characterization of in vivo senescent cells

A research team generated a p16-Cre ERT2 -tdTomato mouse model to characterize in vivo p16 high cells at the single-cell level. They found tdTomato-positive p16 high cells detectable in all organs, which were enriched with age. They also found that these cells failed to proliferate and had half-lives ranging from 2.6 to 4.2 months, depending on the tissue examined.
