The idea of introducing a novel gene into a few individuals that then spreads through an entire population sounds like a premise for science fiction. And yet fiction can be prophetic.
You're not irrational, you're just quantum probabilistic: Researchers explain human decision-making with physics theory
The next time someone accuses you of making an irrational decision, just explain that you're obeying the laws of quantum physics.
A new video game from Abertay University students and University of St Andrews scientists is taking on humanity's oldest disease, tuberculosis.
Given that advanced mathematical training is critical for helping to solve some of the most challenging questions about the brain works, why are there so few mathematical neuroscientists?
As humans have evolved, so has our capacity to think rationally and use resources wisely - right? Not necessarily. According to Cornell research, careful, deliberate decision-making is in constant competition with the more ...
A core concern for any structural material is maintaining a prolonged, effective service life. Notably, critical metal alloy failures typically initiate beyond the naked eye, where intergranular (between the grains) oxidation ...
Like to go your own way? Most of us actually prefer to follow the pack, according to UBC research.
Forget the Vulcan mind-meld of the Star Trek generation—as far as mind control techniques go, bacteria is the next frontier.
While teaching a class on coarse-graining methods in physics, James O'Dwyer realized that the technique could be used to understand how microbes evolve over time. The results, published in PNAS, reveal microbial family trees ...
Researchers have developed a mathematical model that is able to assess whether a person is fashionably dressed and to give advice on how to make the outfit more fashionable.
