Even the mildest form of a traumatic brain injury, better known as a concussion, can deal permanent, irreparable damage. Now, a team is using mathematical modeling to better understand the mechanisms at play in this kind of injury, with an eye toward protecting the brain from its long-term consequences.
You don't just need to rely on hot dogs and pizza to make a buck at concession stands. A study examined sales, revenues and profits at a booster-run concession stand that offered healthy food items, from apples to string cheese, and found the club registered stable sales and revenue, while profits remained intact.
Wild elephants can distinguish between human languages, and they can tell whether a voice comes from a man, woman or boy, a new study says.
A new type of biomolecular tweezers could help researchers study how mechanical forces affect the biochemical activity of cells and proteins.
Researchers report that a new technique to fight crop insect pests may affect different insect populations differently.
A new project has been assessing the archaeoacoustical value of the Welsh bluestones used to create Stonehenge.
Consumers’ desire for visually appealing meat, and the genetic science behind producing such a trait has been explored in a recent paper that described key industry findings on the quality of Australian Lamb.
A startup is retrofitting gas and diesel commercial vans and trucks with fuel-saving “add-on” electric powertrains whose batteries are charged through energy generated by braking.
This image is a view of South America and portions of North America and Africa from the Mercury Dual Imaging System’s wide-angle camera aboard NASA’s MESSENGER.
While farmed salmon are genetically different to their wild counterparts, they are just as fertile. This is important because millions of farmed salmon escape into the wild– posing threats to wild gene pools.
Scientists have identified four new man-made gases in the atmosphere– all of which are contributing to the destruction of the ozone layer.
Attorney General Eric Holder is calling the increase in heroin-related deaths an "urgent public health crisis" and says first responders should carry with them drugs to reverse the effects of an overdose.
Scientists have found that color changes can be used to indicate the suitability of soil for construction purposes.
A team of researchers has used a novel material that’s just a few atoms thick to create devices that can harness or emit light. This proof-of-concept could lead to ultrathin, lightweight and flexible photovoltaic cells, LEDs and other optoelectronic devices.
Researchers have announced a new type of social network, called Omlet, which shields users from the monetization of their personal lives by giving them total and unquestioned control of their personal data.
