‘Weird’ Star Found by NASA Could Be Product of Interstellar Cannibalism

May 26, 2015 11:52 am | by Seth Augenstein, Digital Reporter | News | Comments

The star was discovered in 1963. But only in the last week has its strange behavior earned it a distinctive nickname. The star is so weird that astronomers have nicknamed it “Nasty 1,” a play on its catalog name of NaSt1.

Protocol Fixes Almost Every Error in Quantum Memory

May 26, 2015 10:05 am | by MIT, Larry Hardesty | News | Comments

Quantum computers are largely theoretical devices that could perform some computations exponentially faster than conventional computers can. Crucial to most designs for quantum computers is quantum error correction, which helps preserve the fragile quantum states on which quantum computation depends. A new protocol corrects virtually all errors in quantum memory, but requires little measure of quantum states.


Discovery of Pain-sensing Gene Key to New Relief Methods

May 26, 2015 9:47 am | by Univ. of Cambridge | News | Comments

A gene essential to the production of pain-sensing neurons in humans has been identified by an international team of researchers. The discovery could have implications for the development of new methods of pain relief.  


Computer Models Shed Light on Human Decision-making

May 26, 2015 9:30 am | by EPFL | News | Comments

Some types of decision-making have proven to be very difficult to simulate, limiting progress in the development of computer models of the brain. Scientists have developed a new model of complex decision-making, and have validated it against humans and cutting-edge computer models, uncovering fascinating information about what influences our decision-making and ability to learn from it.


Neuroprosthetics Enable Smoother Motion with Thought

May 26, 2015 9:13 am | by Caltech | Videos | Comments

Neural prosthetic devices implanted in the brain's movement center can allow patients to control the movement of a robotic limb. However, current neuroprosthetics produce motion that is delayed and jerky. Now, by implanting neuroprosthetics in a part of the brain that controls not the movement directly but rather our intent to move, researchers have developed a way to produce more natural and fluid motions.


Man with Rare West African Disease Dies in U.S.

May 26, 2015 8:51 am | by Associated Press, Mike Stobbe | News | Comments

A New Jersey man died last night after been diagnosed with Lassa fever— a frightening infectious disease from West Africa that is rarely seen in the U.S., a federal health official said. The man recently returned from Liberia, arriving at New York City's JFK International Airport on May 17. He grew critically ill after his return, suffering from multiple organ failure.


Image of the Week: Drought-ridden California Looks to Australia

May 26, 2015 8:34 am | by Associated Press, Kristen Gelineau, Ellen Knickmeyer | News | Comments

California has turned to the world's driest inhabited continent for solutions to its longest and sharpest drought on record. Australia, the land poet Dorothea Mackellar dubbed "a sunburnt country," suffered a torturous drought from the late 1990s through 2012. Now, Californians are facing their own "Big Dry," and looking Down Under to see how they coped.
