A chemotherapy drug was more effective at killing pancreatic cancer cells when an extract from chokeberries was added to the mix.

Just a little bit of dairy may cut your risk of stroke

One serving of milk or cheese every day may be enough to ward off heart disease or stroke, even in communities where dairy is not a traditional part of the diet.

Will ‘VIP’ protect us from the flu and HIV and malaria?

Efforts to develop broadly effective vaccines for HIV and malaria have had limited success. Now scientists are testing a totally different approach—one that so far seems very promising.

Scientists use light to make mice asocial

Scientists have discovered antagonistic neuron populations in the mouse amygdala that control whether the animal engages in social behaviors or asocial repetitive self-grooming.

Working alone ‘together’ can be good motivation

The sense that you’re not the only one tackling a challenge—even if you’re physically alone—can increase motivation, say researchers.

What makes one chimp kill another?

It’s a mystery why male chimps kill other adults, but a new study suggests the behavior may have little to do with human activities.

Tiniest galaxy is home to a monster black hole

A huge black hole has been discovered at the center of an ultra-compact galaxy—the smallest galaxy known to contain one.

Brain linkups lag in kids with ADHD

Kids and teens with ADHD lag behind others of the same age in how quickly their brains form connections within, and between, key brain networks.

How to build global cities without so many cars

Expanding public transportation, walking, and biking in cities could save more than $100 trillion in public and private spending between now and 2050.

Can yoga play a role in treating bipolar?

A recent survey suggests that yoga can be a substantial help for people with bipolar disorder, though the practice isn’t without risks.

Do gut bacteria make flu shots work better?

Brain ‘node’ causes deep sleep without sedative

Scientists have identified a second “sleep node” in the mammalian brain whose activity appears to be both necessary and sufficient to produce deep sleep.

How to make carbon thread without ‘clumps’

Made into fibers, single-walled carbon nanotubes line up like a fistful of raw spaghetti noodles, thanks to a new process.

Asian monsoon may be much older than we thought

Scientists examined the genetic “fingerprints” on 57 types of trees on an island in Panama and found that each tree species has its own bacterial identity.

Maybe early Earth wasn’t hellishly hot

Conditions on Earth for the first 500 million years after it formed may have not been as extreme as originally thought.

23 new gene variants linked to prostate cancer risk

Scientists can now explain one-third of the inherited risk for prostate cancer, thanks to a large study that identifies 23 new genetic variants associated with an increased risk for the disease.

Color display designed for ‘squid skin’ camo

Scientists have developed a new full-color display technology that, once refined, could be a critical component for creating artificial “squid skin”—camouflaging metamaterials that can “see” colors and automatically blend into the background.
