Defective components may cause affected devices to not deliver electric shocks, and the device's self-test may not detect the defect in advance of use.
New techniques may allow breeders and researchers to use this map of genetic variation to study and improve maize varieties.
(Purdue University) Researchers have shown how an experimental drug might restore the function of nerves damaged in spinal cord injuries by preventing short circuits caused when tiny "potassium channels" in the fibers are exposed.
(University of Maryland) John Fisher, associate professor in the Fischell Department of Bioengineering, won the Best Inventor Pitch at the 2009 Bioscience Research and Technology Review Day with a tissue engineering bioreactor system that grows bone and other types of tissue for implantation.
(University of Florida) Traditional endoscopes provide a peek inside patients' bodies. Now, a University of Florida engineering researcher is designing ones capable of a full inspection.
(European Space Agency) The MIRAS instrument on ESA's SMOS satellite, launched earlier this month, has been switched on and is operating normally. MIRAS will map soil moisture and ocean salinity to improve our understanding of the role these two key variables play in regulating Earth's water cycle.
(National Science Foundation) The ocean is a potentially vast source of electric power, yet as engineers test new technologies for capturing it, the devices are plagued by battering storms, limited efficiency and the need to be tethered to the seafloor.
(NIH/National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences) The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, part of the National Institutes of Health, is increasing its investment in understanding the potential health, safety and environmental issues related to tiny particles that...
(Tampere University of Technology) Researchers from Tampere University of Technology and the University of Helsinki have created a service that enables at-home screening of sleep disorders. Compared to the existing methods the new method is both affordable and easy to use. The service was...
The under-35 adult population in the US has already adopted Web-to-TV video capability
Next generation video-on-demand technology—known as Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) and Data Centers—will dramatically change the business model.
While living in the sea for millions of years, whales and dolphins have evolved to use underwater sound waves for important tasks like communication and finding prey. But with the constant rise of human activity in the sea and the consequential noise pollution, the survival of these sea...
The deep sea is one of the last remaining frontiers in human exploration. Hidden within the darkness are reefs known as cold water corals, home to crustaceans, molluscs, other invertebrates and fish that form the base of a food chain. As part of a European-funded research programme,...
