Scientists have developed a technology for printing personalized neuroprostheses on a 3D bioprinter
Researchers from Saint Petersburg state University have developed a 3D printing technology for soft neuroprostheses called NeuroPrint, which in the future can help literally put a person on their feet after a spinal cord injury. The new development has already shown its effectiveness in studies on mammals and fish Danio-rerio. The results are publi...
Sound waves of underwater earthquakes show the impact of global warming on the oceans
Sound waves created by the rumble of underwater earthquakes provide a new way to study how climate change is warming the oceans, sciencenews.org writes with reference to Science. As greenhouse gas emissions heat the planet, the ocean absorbs a huge amount of this heat. To track changes, approximately 4,000 devices called Argo floats collect temper...
New calculation clarifies the difference between matter and antimatter
An international collaboration of theoretical physicists, including scientists from Brookhaven national laboratory (BNL, USA) and the RIKEN-BNL Research center (RBRC), has published a new calculation relevant to the search for an explanation for the antimatter preponderance of matter in our Universe. The collaboration, known as RBC-UKQCD, also inc...
Scientists identify gene family key to unlocking vertebrate evolution
