For our brain it makes a great difference whether we remember experiences from long ago, or if we recollect recent events. RUB-neuroscientists were able to show that distinct brain-networks are involved.
For the purpose of blood analyses and industrial tests, it is often necessary to measure the concentration of specific ions. The relevant devices are large and expensive. A new dry electrode could change all that.
Researchers have implemented a blood test which may in future facilitate the detection of Alzheimer’s at an early stage.
Water electrolysis has not yet established itself as a method for the production of hydrogen. Too much energy is lost in the process. Researchers have now doubled the efficiency of the reaction.
A RUB study demonstrates: in many countries, hearing screenings of newborn infants are inadequate or are not performed at all. Whereas an early diagnose is crucial in order to treat the disorder successfully.
In one third of all servers, the security protocol TLS and encrypted data transfer can be compromised. All types of online communication that deal with sensitive data are affected.
At first glance, the brains of birds and mammals show many significant differences. In spite of that, the cognitive skills of some groups of birds match those of apes.
Does our brain perceive objects initially as a conglomeration of shapes, colours and patterns or does it instantly recognise the entire structure? An article by RUB philosopher Prof Dr Albert Newen provides the answer.
Scientists have investigated how we perceive movement. They show that contrasts between object and background lead to activity waves in the brain that aid perception.
Researchers often analyse isolated biomolecules in test tubes, and it is doubtful if the results can be applied to densely-packed cells. Scientists monitored the folding of an RNA structure in the living cell.
Human blood cells have olfactory receptors that respond to Sandalore. This could provide a starting point for new leukaemia therapies, as researchers from Bochum report in a current study.
GPS technology plays a crucial role in identifying location and time in the industry as well as in other areas. Hackers can cause great damage. Deploying several GPS receivers at the same time could solve the problem.
Neuroscienctists showed that stressed persons do less well in the discrimination of complex scenes than non-stressed persons.
Even though the climate change conference in Paris achieved meaningful results, society still has a long way to go to rid itself of CO2 emissions. How to accomplish this task?
Many users configure their mobile devices in such a way that hackers can easily gain access to their personal data.
Using molecular dynamics simulations, researchers have analysed the properties of supercritical water. The hydrogen bond networks plays a decisive role.
