Not all cancer metastases have the same destructive effect. Researchers demonstrate different mechanisms in experiments.
The renowned physicist receives the most highly endowed research award in Germany. In Bochum, he is to open up new fields of research in materials science and establish a research centre.
Progesterone was shown in a study to have a protective effect on intestine nerve cells. These findings raise hopes that the hormone could be used in the fight against Parkinson’s disease.
Birds show remarkably similar sleep patterns to humans and may experience flight in their dreams.
In order for the egg and sperm cells of corals from different colonies to mix, all animals of one species must spawn at the same time. And the moon plays a crucial role in synchronising this process.
In order to travel from A to B in Berlin, you don’t need a local taxi driver. Your cab could just as well be driven from Brazil – provided that the data packets are delivered reliably and, above all, quickly.
Pain-processing regions are particularly affected by changes in brain volume. The good news is that these changes may be reversible.
Discovery of the MOTH domain offers insights into evolution. This is because both insects and vertebrates need collagen in their connective tissue.
By reflecting every now and then on what they want to achieve in their job, teachers can boost their students’ motivation. As well as their own.
The virus remains infectious on steel surfaces for up to 30 days, but can be effectively inactivated by alcohol-based disinfectants.
Do we always perceive the world in the same way? A hypnosis experiment proves that we certainly don’t.
When concrete and steel stick together, they may be able to withstand extreme heat far longer than each of them can on its own. This is relevant when planning for fire protection in building construction.
How does the brain learn spatial information? Neural computation researchers are using artificial intelligence to explore this question.
Cryptocurrencies are not subject to centralised governance. The community holds the power – but fails to do all that needs to be done. As a result, the collateral of the currency might be at risk.
5G has plenty more to offer than 4G. Radix Security makes sure that it doesn’t leave any security gaps open.
Why do we tend to like people who share our interests – and why do we like people even more if they share our most unusual tastes?
Consciousness continues to puzzle researchers. A team from Bochum and San Francisco presents a new theory on its function
The introduction of the commenting feature has added a whole new dimension to the internet. The promise was: everyone can participate. But things took a different turn.
Conditioning that once worked with Pavlov’s dog does also work with an artificially induced change in nerve cell activity.
The reason why male bees collect scents in pockets on their hind legs remained a mystery for a long time. As an attractant? As a wedding gift? To show off to other males? Researchers have now figured it out.
