Revealing the retina: Graphene corneal contact lens provides robust, irritation-free topographic electroretinography

Our vision can be damaged or lost by damage to the retina—a sensory membrane lining the back of the eye that senses light, converting the image formed into electrochemical neuronal signals—resulting from two classes of ...

Trophic coherence explains why networks have few feedback loops and high stability

(Phys.org)—Complexity – defined as having emergent properties or traits that are not a function of, and are therefore difficult or inherently impossible to predict from, the discrete components comprising the system – ...

Your brain on mesh: Injectable flexible probe melds with neurons, causes little or no chronic immune response

(Phys.org)—Neuroprostheses, neural probes and other intraneural tissue implants have offered remarkable benefits to recipients in a number of areas in neuroscience research and biomedical applications, therapeutic examples ...

Of wrinkles and wires: Capillarity-induced skin folding spontaneously forms aligned DNA nanowire

(Phys.org)—Nanowires fashioned from DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid)—one of several type of molecular nanowires incorporating repeating molecular units—are exactly that: Geometrically wire-like DNA-based nanostructures defined ...

Modeling morphology: Solid-solid phase transitions based on colloidal particle shape changes

(Phys.org)—Phase transitions are transformations that occur between states of matter—that is, between solid, liquid, gas, and less commonly between gas and plasma. What may be surprising is that solid-solid phase transitions, ...

Biology, meet philology: First application of phylogenetic evolutionary framework to color naming

(Phys.org)—That there are universal patterns in the naming of colors across languages has long been a topic of discussion in a range of disciplines, including anthropology, cognitive science and linguistics. However, previous ...

One day, many ideas: Future of Mind 2016 illuminates NYC (Part 1)

(Phys.org)—The shape that human cognition may take over the coming next half-century has become increasingly difficult to foresee. Moreover, accelerating advances in science, mathematics, computing, and culture – including ...

Managing complexity: Novel protein folding tool vastly simplifies understanding how sequence encodes structure

(Phys.org)—Protein folding is the process by which a polypeptide (a linear organic polymer chain consisting of many amino acid residues, or monomers) transforms from a random coil into the 3D conformation in which it can ...

Cool Constructs: Room temperature out-of-plane ferroelectricity at ultrathin atomic limit

(Phys.org)—Optoelectronic devices that combine electronics and photonics are incorporating two-dimensional (2D) materials for a range of applications. At the same time, cooperative phenomena – in which a system's individual ...

Simulated quantum magnetism can control spin interactions at arbitrary distances

(Phys.org)—Quantum magnetism, in which – unlike magnetism in macroscopic-scale materials, where electron spin orientation is random – atomic spins self-organize into one-dimensional rows that can be simulated using ...
