New imaging technique leads to better understanding of freezing in plants
Using a new technique to study an old problem, an Agricultural Research Service scientist in North Carolina has uncovered new details about what happens to a cereal plant when it freezes.
Experts cautious over Google nanoparticle project
A Google project to develop nanoparticles that can detect cancer cells inside the body is a useful contribution but faces important hurdles, experts said on Wednesday. ...
Liberal or conservative? Reactions to disgust are a dead giveaway
Maggot infestations, rotting carcasses, unidentifiable gunk in the kitchen sink – how much your brain responds to disgusting images could predict whether you are liberal or conservative.
Five science 'facts' we learnt at school that are plain wrong
Let's start with a quiz…
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 ...
A new imaging approach for monitoring cell metabolism
Scientists at EPFL have used a new imaging technique to monitor how glucose, our main energy source, is used in the body. Their findings may have great implications for diseases like diabetes.
Extremely high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging
For the first time, researchers have succeeded to detect a single hydrogen atom using magnetic resonance imaging, which signifies a huge increase in the technology's spatial resolution. In the future, single-atom ...

Synthesis produces new antibiotic: Scientists confirm potent synthesis of natural tetracycline
A fortuitous collaboration at Rice University has led to the total synthesis of a recently discovered natural antibiotic.
New cancer-hunting 'nano-robots' to seek and destroy tumours
It sounds like a scene from a science fiction novel – an army of tiny weaponised robots travelling around a human body, hunting down malignant tumours and destroying them from within.
Chemists develop MRI technique for peeking inside battery-like devices
A team of chemists from New York University and the University of Cambridge has developed a method for examining the inner workings of battery-like devices called supercapacitors, which can be charged up extremely quickly ...
