Scientists Successfully Reverse Human Aging Process in Breakthrough Study

  • Alt

The fountain of youth may be made of air, not water.

Scientists say they’ve successfully reversed the aging process of elderly people through “oxygen therapy” in a first-of-its-kind study.

These Scientists Just Completed a 3D ‘Google Earth’ for the Brain

  • Alt

Human brain maps are a dime a dozen these days. Maps that detail neurons in a certain region. Maps that draw out functional connections between those cells. Maps that dive deeper into gene expression. Or even meta-maps that combine all of the above.

Which Kids are Most Likely to Succeed in School? Scientists Say Genes Offer a Clue

  • Alt

Many factors boost a child's chance of success in school — like having wealthy parents who can afford tutors. But recent research has raised another possibility — one that is discomforting to many — the idea that scientists might someday be able to spot the genetic markers associated with academic performance.

For the First Time, Scientists Fully Sequenced the Human X Chromosome

  • Alt

The sequencing of the human genome was one of the greatest scientific feats of the past century, but it’s a little-known fact that it’s still a work in progress with considerable gaps. New research suggests we could be just months away from finally finishing the job.

Scientists Linked Artificial and Biological Neurons in a Network - and Amazingly, It Worked

  • Alt

Scientists have linked up two silicon-based artificial neurons with a biological one across multiple countries into a fully-functional network. Using standard internet protocols, they established a chain of communication whereby an artificial neuron controls a living, biological one, and passes on the info to another artificial one.

Whoa.

Scientists Have Discovered a Way to Control How You Think

  • Alt

What if you could improve your mental aptitude and performance by directly stimulating specific parts of the brain? That's what a team of researchers from Boston University wanted to find out, and they developed an experimental procedure that can change how you think.

Scientists Have Created a Drug that Replicates the Health Benefits of Exercise

  • Alt

Researchers have made the breakthrough of couch potatoes’ dreams with a new drug that mimics some of the most important effects of exercise. Scientists from Deakin University in Melbourne published their findings in Cell Reports earlier this week, showing that overweight mice who were given the drug no longer showed signs of cardiovascular disease.
