Biochemists link synthetic compound to hunger-hormone production

New research suggests that a man-made cousin of a small molecule found in olive oil can disrupt the hunger-signaling pathway. Researchers identified this promising new target by screening a library of roughly 1,600 small molecules for potential disruptors. Because the small molecule could influence how the body senses and utilizes energy, it has the potential to be developed into a treatment for conditions that affect energy balance, like diabetes and obesity....

Seeing the light: Researchers seek to improve solar cell technology using new materials and nanowires

Researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology are expanding solar cell technology using nanowires to capture more of the suns energy and transform it into usable electricity. Comparable to ultra-thin blades of grass, nanowires added to todays conventional materials are capable of capturing more light and can be cost-effective solutions for adopting solar energy into the broader consumer market....


Ultracold molecules hold promise for quantum computing

Researchers have taken an important step toward the long-sought goal of a quantum computer, which in theory should be capable of vastly faster computations than conventional computers, for certain kinds of problems. The new work shows that collections of ultracold molecules can retain the information stored in them, for hundreds of times longer than researchers have previously achieved in these materials....

  Clocking the Mind
Mental Chronometry (MC) comprises a variety of techniques for measuring the speed with which the brain processes information.First developed in mid-1800, MC was subsequently eclipsed by more complex and practically useful types of psychometric tests stemming from Alfred Binet. This class of mental tests, however, has no true metric relating the test scores to any specific properties of the brain per se. The scores merely represent an ordinal scale, only ranking individuals according to their ove ...See The Price
