The more difficult the task, the more stress occurs. Or so you might think, but it’s not quite that simple.
Optimising electrochemical processes is one of the challenges in developing technologies for renewable energies. New research findings could provide assistance here.
Actually, the researchers are not specifically interested in hydraulic fracturing. But in a sense, they are using it as a scaled-up laboratory experiment.
CO2 can be converted electrochemically into starting materials for industry. So far, however, catalysts that are stable over a long period of time have been lacking. A few tricks could solve the problem.
Wage incentive schemes increase the productivity of employees. Yet recent research shows at what point variable pay starts to have a negative impact on health.
The animals use a special luminescent organ to generate blink patterns. The blinking frequency affects the behaviour of the other fish in the school.
A team of international researchers from Osaka University in Japan and Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) solved the structure of monomeric photosystem I by cryo-electron microscopy.
Trauma patients experience intrusive and distressing memories of their traumatic event. A team from Bochum is examining new ways to strengthen the effects of psychotherapy.
Amazon screens special voice assistant functions for security. However, scammers can circumvent this check – one of several problems.
Finding the best material composition among thousands of possibilities is like looking for a needle in a haystack. An international team is combining computer simulations and high-throughput experiments to do this.
Predator-prey relationships between bacteria could provide ideas for new antibacterial strategies.
Stress can be triggered and investigated in different ways. But do they also lead to the same result?
Compared to previous methods, the team has achieved a high yield and selectivity under less aggressive reaction conditions.
The discovery may make it possible to use oxygen-stable enzymes as hydrogen producers.
The shapes of the components optimised by an algorithm appear strangely familiar. This is no coincident: they undergo an evolution process comparable to biological processes.
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.
