Odors are perceived the same way by hunter-gatherers and Westerners

18.06.2018 19:14

Previous research has shown the hunter-gatherer Jahai are much better at naming odors than Westerners. They even have a more elaborate lexicon for it. New research by language scientists show that despite these linguistic differences, the Jahai and Dutch find the same odors pleasant and unpleasant.

Rare mutation of gene carried by Quebec family gives insight into how the brain is wired

18.06.2018 19:14

The study of a Quebec family with an unusual gene provides novel insight into how our brain is built and, according to scientists, offers a better understanding of psychiatric disorders such as depression, addictions and schizophrenia.

Silence is golden when it comes to how our brains work

18.06.2018 19:14

It's the comparative silence between the firing spikes of neurons that tells what they are really up to, scientists report.

Organic crystals twist, bend, and heal

18.06.2018 19:11

Crystals are brittle and inelastic? A novel class of smart, bendable crystalline organic materials has challenged this view. Now, scientists have engineered a molecular soft cocrystalline structure that bends and twists reversibly and without disintegration when stimulated by high temperature, mechanical force, or under UV light. This multifunctional quality makes it a robust candidate for advanced molecular electronics and other new materials.

Best evidence of rare black hole captured

18.06.2018 19:11

Scientists have been able to prove the existence of small black holes and those that are super-massive but the existence of an elusive type of black hole, known as intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs) is hotly debated. New research shows the strongest evidence to date that this middle-of-the-road black hole exists, by serendipitously capturing one in action devouring an encountering star.

Neuroscientists map brain's response to cold touch

18.06.2018 19:11

Neuroscientists have mapped the feeling of cool touch to the brain's insula in a mouse model. The findings provide an experimental model that will advance research into conditions like pain and hypersensitivity to cold and help researchers to continue to unravel the multifaceted ways touch is represented in the brain.

Meeting Paris climate targets will require a substantial reallocation of global investment

18.06.2018 19:11

A new analysis by an international team of scientists shows that low carbon investments will need to markedly increase if the world is to achieve the Paris Agreement aim of keeping global warming well below 2°C.

Scientists create continuously emitting microlasers with nanoparticle-coated beads

18.06.2018 19:11

Researchers have found a way to convert nanoparticle-coated microscopic beads into lasers smaller than red blood cells. These microlasers, which convert infrared light into light at higher frequencies, are among the smallest continuously emitting lasers of their kind ever reported and can constantly and stably emit light for hours at a time, even when submerged in biological fluids such as blood serum.
