Several salt mummies have been unearthed in an old mine in Iran. Some of them originated before the birth of Christ. Who were they?
Large amounts of carbon thousands of years old are stored under the forest floor. And it is better to keep it there.
Brain oscillations that can be measured using depth electrodes provide insights into the human navigation system. The method may open up new approaches for early Alzheimer’s diagnosis.
Chemical molecules that behave like images and mirror images interact differently with other molecules. A new project is set to reveal more about their differences.
Some molecules change their spatial structure when exposed to light – in other words, they look different in light and darkness. What exactly happens during the conversion has not yet been researched in detail.
Sleep helps to consolidate memories. Researchers from Bochum and Bonn have investigated how exactly this works. Even things that we forget are not immediately gone.
The Electrochemical Society honours the diverse work of the Bochum-based scientist in applied and basic research.
The protein Bax is responsible for programmed cell death. Because it is constantly changing its location, its structure has so far been difficult to determine.
Great joy in the Ruhr region: The Cluster of Excellence in solvation science has once again succeeded in the competition.
Major success in Bochum: two Clusters of Excellence go to Ruhr-Universität.
Simulations should be able to predict which escape routes are safe in the event of a fire or poison gas attack quicker than in real time. However, the natural air flows first need to be known.
The semi-artificial system is constructed like a Lego box – which opens up a wide range of applications for the future.
Researchers can hide secret commands for voice assistants in spoken sentences, birds’ twittering, or music. They are not audible to the human ear. The machine recognises them precisely.
Researchers use a trick to prevent a ring from forming when droplets dry. This has far-reaching consequences.
The mechanism protects sensitive enzymes from oxygen. It obtains its energy from sugar. Together with hydrogen, it can also drive an entire fuel cell.
More and more rivers have been bursting their banks in Germany since 1993. Evidence of climate change?
Two brain regions apparently play a pivotal role in forgetting.
Non-classical logic tolerates contradictions.
Heavily traumatised people such as refugees fleeing war, torture and natural catastrophes may not necessarily develop posttraumatic stress disorder, a new study reveals.
The development of cells is governed by a wide range of different enzymes. Researchers have now identified an enzyme that plays a crucial role in that process.
