Breaking research from science, medicine and technology.

PNNL researchers have created a unique video that shows oxygen bubbles inflating and later deflating inside a tiny lithium-air battery. The knowledge gained from the video could help make lithium-air batteries that are more compact, stable and can hold onto a charge longer. …read more …

Cardiovascular decompensation is a significant risk after blood loss, even once the person is no longer actively bleeding. Applying a bag of ice to a person’s forehead could help prevent this life-threatening complication while patients are being transported to the hospital. …read more Source: EurekAlert

Neuroscientists have created a 3-D window into the human brain’s budding executive hub assembling itself during a critical period in prenatal development. What’s more, they used it to discover and experimentally correct — in cultured human forebrain ‘spheroids’ — defective cell migration caused by an …

New research shows that as stem cell lines grow in a lab dish, they often acquire mutations in the TP53 (p53) gene, an important tumor suppressor responsible for controlling cell growth. Findings suggest that genetic sequencing technologies should be used to screen for mutated cells …
