Neutron stars may be much heavier than predicted by theory. This is possibly due to hyperons, i.e. poorly understood elementary particles. John Bulava aims at reconciling theory and experiment with new simulations.
It’s quite obvious that they are involved. The latest findings show one possible way.
When it comes to self-discipline, psychological research traditionally focuses on individual responsibility. Wilhelm Hofmann believes this is too short-sighted. Self-discipline doesn’t work without effective regulation.
Formaldehyde can inhibit enzymes that produce hydrogen particularly efficiently. Researchers from Bochum have discovered how this can be prevented.
A heat shock protein protects the cells against protein clumping. It degrades, however, over longer treatment periods.
Astrophysicist Dr Elisa Pueschel wants to penetrate a still unexplored mass range of dark matter particles.
Improving safety and durability of batteries requires a better understanding of processes that take place inside them at the atomic level. Tong Li intends to lay the foundations for this as part of a Consolidator Grant.
Plasmas can provide the co-substrate needed for biocatalysis of valuable substances, but are also harmful to enzymes. By attaching enzymes to small beads the enzymes are protected and remain active up to 44 times longer.
Skin blemishes are a problem many people are familiar with. Cold plasma can be a remedy, as shown by studies at Ruhr University Bochum, Germany. A Worldfactory start-up is already getting off the ground, too.
The discovery of the phantom touch illusion provides insights into human perception and opens up new perspectives for interaction with virtual reality technology.
How do men and women regulate their emotions under stress? A new study in cognitive psychology that makes use of the socially evaluated cold-pressor test has answered this question.
Researchers at Ruhr University Bochum have published the first systematic review of Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR).
After more than a century, physicists aim to dethrone the tried-and-tested technology of the refrigerator, as cooling can be made more energy-efficient.
Monitoring whether states are complying with disarmament treaties is not an easy task. An international team has been exploring remote monitoring with the help of two antennas and a couple of mirrors.
A new algorithm measures materials libraries up to four times faster than before. It’s based on machine learning.
Selective genetic channel modifications can protect hydrogen-producing enzymes from harmful oxygen.
Catalysts should be efficient and durable. To find them, four teams are systematically working together on new concepts. They are being funded by the European Research Council (ERC) with 10 million euros.
A study by researchers at the Universities of Bonn and Bochum suggests that roosters might recognize themselves in the mirror.
In 2018 the Spectre attack revealed critical security vulnerabilities in numerous systems that could be exploited to harvest sensitive data. The implementation of countermeasures is supposed to protect from such attacks.
The molecular journey of triglycerides sealing the barrier of the tuberculosis bacterium revolves around a two-protein team.
