Scientists have uncovered thousands of never-before-seen genetic variants in the human genome using a new genome sequencing technology.
Previous studies have shown that playing video games can help improve certain learning capabilities. Now, recent findings published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) reiterate what prior studies have shown: video games could help learning even outside the concept of the s...
Scientists are using some new tools to study melting polar ice. Robotic ocean gliders are revealing a bit more about how and why this melt is occurring.
Are you familiar with beat-deafness? Simply put, it happens when certain individuals can't keep a pulse or move their bodies based on synchronized sounds.
Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Germany are always busy working on the latest gadgets. Of course, they've worked to develop microscopic robots that can actually swim through body fluids and repair damaged cells, delivering medicine. Yet now, their most recent projec...
Scientists may have learned a bit more about the evolution of tortoises. By carefully studying modern and early tortoise fossils, researches have uncovered the evolutionary processes that helped shape their unique breathing apparatus and tortoise shell.
Scientists are giving cyborg cockroaches an upgrade. They've created new technology that allows these biobots to pick up sounds with small microphones, and then seek out the source of the sound.
What if we could communicate to one another without speaking? What if we could simply communicate using our brains? Scientists are working on just that and have now successfully replicated a direct brain-to-brain connection between pairs of people.
Research shows that Elton John may have been right; sad songs really do say a lot, and particularly when we're feeling unhappy but looking to lighten up.
You wouldn't think that dance has much in common with computers. In this case, though, it does. Scientists have found that blending movement and computer programming actually supports girls in building computational thinking skills.
Imagine taking waste from crops and, instead of throwing it away, turning it into something useful. Scientists are doing just that with a new technique.
The Center for Process Innovation, a British technology research company, is working to renovate your airplane experience in a way that you might not have thought of. They're actually hoping to remove the windows from passenger planes and replace them with OLED touch screens that extend the entire l...
