After 15 years in vegetative state, researchers restore consciousness in man by implanting vagus nerve stimulator into his chest.
Study shows wolves have a better understanding of cause-and-effect than the dogs - and they follow human-given communicative cues just as good as dogs. The process of domestication is possibly the reason for this loss of the dogs’ cognitive abilities, researchers say.
A team of chemists from Indiana University has developed a new chemical principle which could help create specially engineered molecules that extract radioactive elements from nuclear waste. The method which could significantly reduce the volume of these radioactive materials will also be applicable to “molecules created to extract chemical pollutants from water and soil."
The hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth’s surface is 2370 degree Celsius (4298 degree Fahrenheit). When a space rock crashed into earth nearly 40 million years ago in what is now Canada, it created hellishly hot temperature in the collision zone for a brief period of time.
What would happen if you were to bring a tiny piece of the Sun to Earth? Short answer is you die. And long answer - it depends which piece of the Sun.
Large-scale genomic study covering 210,000 people from across the United States and Britain has shown that humans are still evolving.
Researchers have shown a way to engineer zika virus to attack and destroy brain cancer stem cells. Since the virus tends to affect stem cells in the fetus’ brain, researchers say it could be directed to infect glioblastoma cells.
Showering is one of the individual ways of maintaining personal hygiene. But have you ever wondered what would happen to your body if you stop showering?
REM sleep is the fifth stage of sleep and it’s when dreaming occurs. During this stage, your eyes will move rapidly and there’s surge in brain activity. But a new study has shown that as the amount of REM sleep declines, the risk of dementia increases.
