Everyone wants to have a whiter, brighter smile, but do over-the-counter teeth-whitening treatments really work? Are they safe?
Researchers have found that drawing pictures of information that needs to be remembered is a strong and reliable strategy to enhance memory. The study presented student participants with a list of simple, easily drawn words, such as “apple.” The students were given 40 seconds to either draw the word, or write it out repeatedly.
Researchers have slowed a notoriously aggressive type of brain tumor in mouse models by using a low-carbohydrate diet. A high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that included a coconut oil derivative helped reduce the growth of glioblastoma tumor cells and extended lifespan in mouse models by 50 percent.
It's one of the most popular beverages in the world, and many of us rely on it to stay awake every day. But not every cup of coffee is created equal. From the bean to the brew, science can help you get the perfect cup.
When water levels in rivers rise, an area known as the “river’s liver” kicks into action, cleansing river water of pollutants and altering the flow of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
El Niño years can have a big impact on the littlest plants in the ocean, and NASA scientists are studying the relationship between the two.
Not all raindrops are created equal. The size of falling raindrops depends on several factors. For the first time, scientists have 3-D snapshots of raindrops and snowflakes around the world from space.
How often do you use water from your tap? Do you trust it? Researchers examined how science helped bring the Flint water crisis to light, and why experts are calling on regulators to prevent future disasters.
A team of scientists has created a sterilization station for surgical instruments that can help minimize risk of infections to patients anywhere in the world.
A new hybrid material featuring stiff metal and soft, porous rubber foam combines the best properties of both - stiffness when it's called for, and elasticity when a change of shape is required. The material also has the ability to self-heal following damage.
Researchers published new findings that suggest the expansion of protected areas into U.S. federal waters would safeguard 100 percent of core home range areas used by three species of sharks tracked in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean.
Modifying gut bacteria could be a treatment option for some of the symptoms associated with the widespread disease polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), according to a recent study. The study found that changes in gut bacteria are strongly associated with obesity and signs of diabetes in a mouse model that mimics PCOS.
The sea butterfly, a tiny zooplankton snail that lives in colder oceans, appears to have more in common with flying insects than just its name. The marine animal utilizes the same figure-eight technique as fruit flies to swim through the ocean.
Thanks to a 360 degree image published by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, anyone can explore the terrain of Mars from the comfort of their home here on Earth.
Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage associated with the development of foot ulcers in patients with diabetes. With SenseGO, changes in pressure due to incorrect posture, anatomical deformation or ill-fitting shoes are registered as electrical signals that are relayed to a smartphone app, which in turn informs the patient of developing risk.
