Researchers have developed a low-cost sensor that can be interlaced into textiles and composite materials. While the research is still new, the sensor may pave the way for smart clothing that can monitor human movement.


Scientists find new type of cell that helps tadpoles' tails regenerate



Posted: 16 May 2019 11:29 AM PDT


Researchers have uncovered a specialized population of skin cells that coordinate tail regeneration in frogs. These 'Regeneration-Organizing Cells' help to explain one of the great mysteries of nature and may offer clues about how this ability might be achieved in mammalian tissues.


Brain's insular cortex processes pain and drives learning from pain



Posted: 16 May 2019 11:28 AM PDT


Neuroscientists have discovered an area of the brain, the insular cortex, that processes painful experiences and thereby drives learning from aversive events.


True identity of imposter 'pigs' on 17th century map overturns early colonial history of Barbados



Posted: 16 May 2019 10:17 AM PDT


Which came first, the pigs or the pioneers? In Barbados, that has been a historical mystery ever since the first English colonists arrived in 1627 to encounter what they thought was a herd of wild European pigs. Research is shedding new light on the mystery and the altering of New World environments.


Fecal microbiota transplant found safe and effective in children with C. difficile



Posted: 16 May 2019 08:46 AM PDT


Fecal microbiota transplant (FMT), or the transfer of stool from a healthy donor to a patient, has been found effective in reversing severe, recurring diarrheal infections from Clostridiodes difficile in adults by restoring a normal microbiome. Now, the largest study to date of FMT in children finds the procedure to be safe and effective in eradicating an infection that is on the rise among children, even those without known risk factors.


Bedbugs evolved more than 100 million years ago



Posted: 16 May 2019 08:46 AM PDT


Bedbugs -- some of the most unwanted human bed-mates -- have been parasitic companions with other species aside from humans for more than 100 million years, walking the earth at the same time as dinosaurs.


ALMA discovers aluminum around young star



Posted: 16 May 2019 08:45 AM PDT


Researchers have discovered an aluminum-bearing molecule for the first time around a young star. The discovery provides a crucial chance to study the early formation process of meteorites and planets like Earth.


Washable, wearable battery-like devices could be woven directly into clothes



Posted: 15 May 2019 08:03 AM PDT


Washable, wearable 'batteries' -- based on cheap, safe and environmentally-friendly inks and woven directly into fabrics -- have been developed by researchers.
