On the trail of the clever snail: Animals, like humans, excel at some tasks but not others
Animals, like humans, excel at some tasks but not others according to a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Logjam isn't the only reason your computer might be more vulnerable to internet threats
There's a hole in the protection surrounding some of the internet's supposedly secure websites. A group of researchers has discovered that cyber criminals and other hackers can attack websites that use the " ...
Brain learning simulated via electronic replica memory
Scientists are attempting to mimic the memory and learning functions of neurons found in the human brain. To do so, they investigated the electronic equivalent of the synapse, the bridge, making it possible for neurons to ...
Nano memory cell can mimic the brain's long-term memory
RMIT University researchers have mimicked the way the human brain processes information with the development of an electronic long-term memory cell.
Researchers demonstrate pattern recognition using magnonic holographic memory device
Researchers at the University of California, Riverside Bourns College of Engineering and the Russian Academy of Sciences have successfully demonstrated pattern recognition using a magnonic holographic memory ...
Human brain inspires computer memory
How is it possible to create computer memory that is both faster and consumes less energy? Researchers at the Institut d'électronique fondamentale (CNRS/Université Paris-Sud) and CEA-List have unlocked ...
SK Hynix Q1 net profit up 61 percent on-year
South Korean chipmaker SK Hynix saw its net profit shoot up 61 percent on-year in the first quarter on strong demand for chips for new mobile devices, the company said Thursday.
Cloud security reaches silicon: System for defending against memory-access attacks implemented in chips
In the last 10 years, computer security researchers have shown that malicious hackers don't need to see your data in order to steal your data. From the pattern in which your computer accesses its memory banks, ...
Method for printing memory circuits directly
VTT has developed a method for printing memory circuits directly, e.g. onto consumer packaging. Because the required production technology is quite simple, no major investments are required.
How bacterial cell recognizes its own DNA
It may come as a bit of a surprise to learn that bacteria have an immune system - in their case to fight off invasive viruses called phages. And like any immune system - from single-celled to human - the ...
The two faces of cellular forgetfulness
Ludwig Maximilian University researchers have monitored how epigenetic information is transmitted to daughter cells during cell division and determined when the cell's developmental memory is re-established.
An elephant never forgets the way to the watering hole
A study published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B tracked the movement of elephants across the African savannah. The elephants chose the shortest distances towards watering holes, pin-pointing the lo ...

Squeeze to remove heat: Elastocaloric materials enable more efficient, 'green' cooling
Move over, vapor compression cooling technology. Emerging "elastocaloric" refrigeration is potentially much more efficient and, unlike vapor compression, relies on environmentally-friendly refrigerants.
