    Researchers create special light waves that can penetrate even opaque materials as if the material was not even there. — ScienceDaily

    For any disordered medium (such as a sugar cube, for example), special light waves can be found which are practically not changed by the medium, only attenuated. These ‘scattering invariant light modes’ could play a major role in new imaging technologies. Why is sugar not transparent? Because light that penetrates a piece of sugar is […] More

    Biologists investigate effects of bisphenols on nerve cells — ScienceDaily

    The plasticisers contained in many everyday objects can impair important brain functions in humans. Biologists from the University of Bayreuth warn of this danger in an article in Communications Biology. Their study shows that even small amounts of the plasticisers bisphenol A and bisphenol S disrupt the transmission of signals between nerve cells in the […] More

    Research could help scientists better estimate Earth’s carbon budget — ScienceDaily

    A team led by University of Minnesota researchers has discovered that deep-sea bacteria dissolve carbon-containing rocks, releasing excess carbon into the ocean and atmosphere. The findings will allow scientists to better estimate the amount of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere, a main driver of global warming. The study is published in The ISME Journal: Multidisciplinary […] More

    How cells control the physical state of embryonic tissues — ScienceDaily

    In the earliest stage of life, animals undergo some of their most spectacular physical transformations. Once merely blobs of dividing cells, they begin to rearrange themselves into their more characteristic forms, be they fish, birds or humans. Understanding how cells act together to build tissues has been a fundamental problem in physics and biology. Now, […] More

    Spanking may affect the brain development of a child — ScienceDaily

    Spanking may affect a child’s brain development in similar ways to more severe forms of violence, according to a new study led by Harvard researchers. The research, published recently in the journal Child Development, builds on existing studies that show heightened activity in certain regions of the brains of children who experience abuse in response […] More

    UMD-led study warns cascading effects of salts require coordinated management and regulation to avoid contaminating natural resources — ScienceDaily

    When winter storms threaten to make travel dangerous, people often turn to salt, spreading it liberally over highways, streets and sidewalks to melt snow and ice. Road salt is an important tool for safety, because many thousands of people die or are injured every year due to weather related accidents. But a new study led […] More

    Analysis of protein interactions as a route to new drugs — ScienceDaily

    What exactly happens when the corona virus SARS-CoV-2 infects a cell? In an article published in Nature, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry paints a comprehensive picture of the viral infection process. For the first time, the interaction between the coronavirus and a cell is […] More

    Early cannabis use linked to heart disease — ScienceDaily

    Smoking cannabis when you’re young may increase your risk of developing heart disease later, according to a recent University of Guelph study. In the first study to look at specific risk indicators for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in young, healthy cannabis users, researchers found subtle but potentially important changes in heart and artery function. Cigarette smoking […] More
