Thumping ‘thread’ mimics heart’s response to drugs

The human heart beats more than 2.5 billion times in an average lifetime. Now, a new 3D organ-on-a-chip can mimic the heart’s amazing biomechanical properties.

Could a ‘bored’ brain predict teen drug abuse?

There’s no easy way to predict which teenager will become a problem drug user. While certain personality traits—impulsiveness for example—may signal danger, not every adolescent fits the description.

Wastewater from oil and gas operations—including fracking for shale gas—at a West Virginia site altered microbes downstream, according to a new study.

Implant lets paralyzed people type with their minds

A brain-to-computer hookup recently allowed people with severe limb weakness to type via direct brain control at the highest speeds and accuracy levels reported to date.

Cells within our bodies divide and change over time, with thousands of chemical reactions occurring within each cell daily.

Can this tool turn children’s BMI results into action?

Parents are more likely to change their child’s lifestyle if schools offer educational materials alongside body mass index screening results, a new study shows.

Supercomputer tests ways to divert blood from aneurysm

Engineers have used high-performance computing to examine the best way to treat an aneurysm. To reduce blood flow into aneurysms, surgeons often insert a flow diverter—tiny tubes made of weaved metal, like stents—across the opening.

These pests use bacteria to keep plants clueless

What looks like a caterpillar chewing on a leaf or a beetle consuming fruit is likely a three-way battle that benefits most, if not all of the players involved, research shows.
