Bioengineers create functional 3-D brain-like tissue
Bioengineers have created three-dimensional brain-like tissue that functions like and has structural features similar to tissue in the rat brain and that can be kept alive in the lab for more than two months.
Forensic sleuths sketch Richard III's brutal end (Update)
King Richard III likely perished at the hands of assailants who hacked away pieces of his scalp and rammed spikes or swords into his brain as the helmetless monarch knelt in the mud.
Dissolvable silicon circuits and sensors

How lizards regenerate their tails: Researchers discover genetic 'recipe'
By understanding the secret of how lizards regenerate their tails, researchers may be able to develop ways to stimulate the regeneration of limbs in humans. Now, a team of researchers from Arizona State University ...
DIY glove-based tutor indicates muscle-memory potential
From quirky to revolutionary, the CES show has them all
Sure, the International CES show was chock full of connected cars, smart home sensors, music gear and computer gadgets, as you'd expect. There were even drones buzzing the 160,000-plus people that tromped ...
'Shape-shifting' material could help reconstruct faces
Injuries, birth defects (such as cleft palates) or surgery to remove a tumor can create gaps in bone that are too large to heal naturally. And when they occur in the head, face or jaw, these bone defects ...
A single statistic can strengthen public support for traffic safety laws
Public support for effective road safety laws, already solid, can be strengthened by a single number: a statistic that quantifies the traffic-related injury risks associated with a given law, according to a new study from ...
Better diagnostic imaging for traumatic brain injuries
Image-calibration technology designed and developed by scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute and the Radiological Society ...
Ford recalls hybrid SUVs to fix stalling problem
Ford is recalling about 74,000 older-model gas-electric hybrid SUVs in the U.S. and Canada to fix a stalling problem.
Pelicans most at risk from fishing tackle injuries
South Australia's recreational fishermen are more likely to snag pelicans than any other marine birds, who are often the victim of fishing line and hook entanglements, according to new research.
Prevention is better than cure say racehorse owners
Prevention is better than cure: and no more so when it comes to injuries to racehorses, which can easily end a champion's career.
Clues to the ageing of tendons unlocked for the first time
University of Liverpool scientists have examined the mechanisms that cause ageing in the tendons of horses, opening up the possibility of better treatment for humans.
Brain-on-a-chip axonal strain injury model highlights mitochondrial membrane potential threshold
Researchers from the Biomedical Engineering Department of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey recently demonstrated the use of their "Brain-on-a-Chip" microsystem to assess specific effects of traumatic axonal injury. ...
