This footage taken at 1000 frames per second (fps) shows how the aerodynamics of a convertible car can prevent passengers from getting wet in the rain. In fact, the Slow Mo Guys did hit 100 mph to take full advantage of the convertible car aerodynamics and just a slight decrease in the speed could affect how the aerodynamics of a convertible’s windshield/windscreen work.
A study at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia revealed that the love hormone oxytocin plays a crucial role in establishing a strong connection between dogs and their owners. Researchers studied 75 dogs over a period of 12 months, giving them a nasal spray of oxytocin to check if the hormone had any affect on the dogs ability to perform simple task and found that the dogs that were given extra doses of oxytocin performed better compared to those given simple saline spray.
Instrumentation engineering as a discipline caters to the science of measurement and control. The branch covers a wide range of subjects including electrical, chemical, electronics as well as computer engineering. Essentially an interdisciplinary domain, instrumentation caters to the management and calibration of electrical circuits as applicable for various systems and ensure proper measurements.
Researchers have now identified how being in love produces alterations in the brain’s functional architecture using neuroimaging techniques.
A combined team of U.S. and Australian scientists have found the mechanism a novel gene uses to affect brain functions and elicit behavior related to neuropsychiatric diseases. It was discovered that the gene called Gomafu might be the key to understanding how our brain responds to stressful experiences. They also...
Illusion means overrefinement of the senses. Illusions may occur with any of the human senses, but vision often dominates the other senses. For an optical illusion, information gathered by the eye is processed in the brain to give a perception that does not tally with a physical measurement of the stimulus source.
Researchers suggested that the universe has no beginning, it may have existed forever and the Big Bang did not mark the birth of the universe.
The finest explanation on engineering facts about the Titanic & its twins, the Olympic and Britannic, from the journals found at the University of Illinois library.
Synchronous rotational motion of the Moon about its axis in about the same time it takes to orbit Earth is what keeps the other face of the moon away from the Earth and keeps the same face turned towards Earth.
According to a recent British Medical Journal, health professionals now know the correct answer to where the fat goes when you lose weight.
A study shows culture impacts creativity. Members from individualistic society show higher signs of creativity compared to those from collectivist society.
Neuroscientists have captured the neural activity in the entire brains of freely moving nematode worms for the first time using an imaging technique.
Do you know which part of the brain gets alarmed first when you recognise a fear and what other parts of the brain are responsible to avoid danger in the future? Researchers Bo Li, Associate Professor and post doctorate fellow Mario Penzo from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL), and Jason...
The result acquired from a countless researches on climate change by NASA and NOAA confirms 2014 was the Earth’s hottest year on record surpassing 2010.
The study at Ohio State University confirms that men who post selfies online are more likely to exhibit psychopathic and narcissistic tendencies than the ones who do not.
Crystal Goodwin is a woman with an extremely rare cell syndrome known as mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), this makes her allergic to the world.
The team of astronomers from the University of Leiden and Durham University have developed a simulation of the universe in which realistic galaxies are created. The project took several months to complete.
Any deep-rooted physicists would tell all beings are immortal as their ideas and beliefs are tightly held with the concept that energy cannot be destroyed. However, for a non-physicist, the precise definitions of life and death are somewhat indecipherable, because medically speaking, we know exactly when a living organism is dead.
Robert Ehrlich claims that neutrino travels faster-than-light and is very likely a tachyon. The measurement of faster-than-light particles was done by weighing them.
