Tiny metal-containing building block might become the core of new drug molecules.
A mutation switches the turbo on during virus replication. This is a blessing for research.
Originally the algorithm was developed for something different. The usage in a technological competition demonstrates its adaptability.
Backed by funding from the European Research Council, Nikolai Axmacher hopes to find out how the brain manages spatial navigation. The results will also be relevant for Alzheimer’s research.
Many years of playing the instrument leave clear traces.
The gut has long been suspected to play a role in autoimmune disease. A research team has now identified evidence of a potential mechanism.
Even after the hundredth time the material returns to its original shape when heated.
Larger parts of the cerebral cortex than thought process tactile stimuli.
Geoscientists can reconstruct the climate of the past by analysing dripstones – and they can also draw up prognoses for the future.
New findings are expected to help protect the hydrogen-producing enzymes from harmful oxygen – which is interesting for biotechnological applications.
Nano columns on the surfaces of implants prevent bacteria from reproducing there. They are grown by a team of material scientists.
Poring over blueprints and searching for manuals might soon become a thing of the past. Augmented Reality could facilitate maintenance and repair work in buildings.
In case of arachnophobia and many other phobias, exposure therapy can be a helpful approach. Its effectiveness apparently depends on whether the patient uses hormonal contraception.
In order to generate realistic images of road signs, researchers pit two algorithms against each other.
The processes underlying artificial intelligence today are in fact stupid. Researchers from Bochum are attempting to make them smarter.
An attack against speech recognition systems with manipulated audio files used to work only via a data interface. Now, all it takes is playing the secret messages via loudspeakers.
Using a novel software made in Bochum, paper-based work instructions can be easily translated into Augmented Reality applications. No prior knowledge necessary.
Like tiny garbage chutes, certain organelles clean cells of superfluous or defective material. Researchers are currently studying the mechanisms underlying this process.
Oxygen threatens sustainable catalysts that use hydrogen to produce electricity in fuel cells. Researchers from Bochum and Marseille have developed a way to combat this.
Noble-metal-free nanoparticles could serve as catalysts for the production of hydrogen from water. Because they are so small, their properties are difficult to determine.
