How plasmas become up to ten times more efficient with the same energy input.
Magnetic nanoparticles raise hopes of treatments for Parkinson’s.
Food security and environmental protection, insight in the flood of geodata: two teams are now taking off with these ideas.
Using gene therapy, a research team has succeeded for the first time in getting mice to walk again after a complete cross-sectional injury. The nerve cells produced the curative protein themselves.
Kissing, cuddling, chatting – thanks to modern research equipment, researchers have been able to record the brain activity of couples in emotional situations at home.
Patients with eating disorders automatically slide sideways through doors that are actually wide enough for them. This is an indication of how they unconsciously overestimate their corpulence.
Many young people in Europe are still unemployed. An international team is working on concepts to better prepare young people for the job market, and is looking for mentors, experts and mentees.
Memory deficit is a normal side effect of aging. At what point does memory loss become pathological?
What mammals and yeasts can do, plants can do, too: inserting proteins into membranes via a specific pathway. A legacy of their last common ancestor.
The body knows various mechanisms that dampen painful sensations. They can be examined with new methods.
One cannot simply look inside someone else’s head. This makes it difficult to understand what is happening in the brains of people with dementia. A new method offers insights.
Photosynthetic proteins can convert light energy into other forms of energy. Researchers want to make this technology usable for the industrial production of fuels, for example.
Experts from different fields together reveal the first structure of the peroxisomal docking complex.
Analyzing nanoparticles individually is a challenge precisely because they are so small. A new technique using electron microscopy and a robotic arm could make the process much easier.
An international research team has investigated water molecules in a tiny cage – and discovered previously unknown properties.
Green bell peppers are unripe and do not fully ripen. Bochum biologists want to know why.
When we see a banana, at first we only notice yellow and smoothness. Only later do we recognise the crescent shape and the fact that it is a banana.
Infrared analyses of neuronal proteins provide information on molecular changes in patients with ALS. This helps to verify their diagnosis.
Researchers have found a new hypothesis for explaining Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, also known as broken heart syndrome.
We generally take for granted that the particles inside atomic nuclei stick together. However, the interactions between the nuclear constituents are, for the most part, not fully understood.
