New robotic prosthesis allows hand and finger movements with thought

One of the main problems with robotic hand implants is sending the command from the patient’s brain to the hand and fingers, through the muscles or nerves, to make the necessary movements. It is an obstacle that seems to be … Continue reading

Nuclei of half-destroyed planets from stars detectable by radio telescopes

There are stars that, after burning all their “fuel,” turn into so-called “white dwarfs” but project their outer layers outward before performing this transformation. This material, projected at very high speed, destroys nearby objects and also strongly damages the planets … Continue reading

Scientists discover genes involved in the life extension of fruit flies

A group of Russian geneticists studied the Drosophila melanogaster, also called “fruit fly,” a model organism widely used in the research world as its genome is very well known and contains genes related to 40% of human diseases. Moreover other … Continue reading

Mini human liver created in the laboratory to simulate diseases and study them

Miniature cultured human liver labs were created by a group of researchers from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. The “mini livers” could help to simulate the progressions of various liver diseases and therefore to test their therapies. The … Continue reading

Injecting three hormones under the skin causes weight loss in the obese

During some experiments, researchers at Imperial College London noticed a reduction in body weight and glucose levels in obese patients with diabetes in about four weeks. The reduction took place thanks to the injection of a particular mix of hormones. … Continue reading

Mass of a huge supermassive black hole calculated with precision by astronomers

What happens in a black hole? It is not yet known whether the theories are different. For the moment we have to settle for studying what happens in the “sphere of influence” of a black hole, ie the inner region … Continue reading
