Epilepsy that does not respond to drugs can be halted in adult mice by transplanting a specific type of cell into the brain.
Wrigley says it is taking a new caffeinated gum off the market temporarily as the Food and Drug Administration investigates the safety of added caffeine.
Scientists confirmed the presence of a magnetic field generated by electrons which scientists had theorized existed, but that had never been proven until now.
Researchers discovered a technique for controlling the sensitivity of graphene chemical sensors.
A new “solder” for laser welding of tissue during surgical operations has the potential to produce stronger seals and expand use of this alternative to conventional sutures and stapling in intestinal surgery.
Inga Kadisha, from the Univ. of Alabama at Birmingham, and a team found that the feeling of hunger itself may protect against Alzheimer’s disease.
Scientists are planning a new experiment that could open the doors to new realms of particle physics. But first, they have to move a complex electromagnet that spans 50 feet in diameter 3,200 miles.
Exposing skin to sunlight may help to reduce blood pressure, cut the risk of heart attack and stroke, a study suggests. Findings suggest that exposure to sunlight improves health overall, because the benefits of reducing blood pressure far outweigh the risk of developing skin cancer.
Stephen Hawking has dropped plans to attend a major international conference in Israel in June, citing his belief that he should respect a Palestinian call to boycott contacts with Israeli academics.
Steelmaking— a major emitter of climate-altering gases— could be transformed by a new process. The process carries a couple of nice side benefits: the resulting steel should be of higher purity, and eventually, once the process is scaled up, cheaper.
From Ireland to the Balkans, Europeans are basically one big family, closely related to one another for the past thousand years, according to a new study of the DNA of people from across the continent.
A 65-year-old Frenchman is hospitalized after contracting France's first case of a deadly new respiratory virus related to SARS.
Viruses that infect and kill bacteria— used to treat infections in the pre-antibiotic era a century ago— may have a new role in preventing formation of the sticky “biofilms” responsible for infections on implanted medical devices.
Researchers have used strain engineering to improve the light output power of 530nm green light-emitting diodes by 28.9 percent .
Researchers have created a new tool to detect flaws in lithium-ion batteries as they are being manufactured, a step toward reducing defects and inconsistencies in the thickness of electrodes that affect battery life and reliability.
