‘Bystander Effect’ Holds True For Rats. They’ll Help Strangers Unless Others Don’t : Shots

Faced with a rat trapped in a restrainer, a free rat opens the trap’s door to liberate the trapped animal (while stepping on its head — “very rat-ish behavior,” says University of Chicago neurobiologist Peggy Mason).

The Way to Eliminate This coffee-stain Impact

Credit: University of Twente The coffee-stain effect is a well-known effect in physics and daily life in which a dark-colored edge remains when a fluid containing particles evaporates. This is caused by an “avalanche” of particles moving to the outer edge, University of Twente scientists showed in a past study. In inkjet and 3-D printing,…

Quantum Hall effect of Weyl fermions in n-type semiconducting tellurene

AbstractDirac and Weyl nodal materials can host low-energy relativistic quasiparticles. Under strong magnetic fields, the topological properties of Dirac/Weyl materials can directly be observed through quantum Hall states. However, most Dirac/Weyl nodes generically exist in semimetals without exploitable band gaps due to their accidental band-crossing origin. Here, we report the first experimental observation of Weyl…

Quantum effect observed in ‘large’ metal

Credit: EPFL/QMAT In the world of materials science, sometimes main discoveries can be found in unexpected places. While working on the resistivity of a type of delafossite—PdCoO2—researchers at EPFL’s Laboratory of Quantum Materials discovered that the electrons in their sample did not behave entirely as expected. When a magnetic field was applied, the electrons retained…

Warburg effect: Sugar-tagging helps drug compounds to target human prostate cancer cells

Scientists of Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU), together with German and Russian colleagues, have developed a lead compound to fight chemotherapy-resistant prostate cancer. The original design comes out as scientists combine biologically active molecules from the chemically modified pigment of sea urchins with glucose molecules to deliver the active drug substance inward the tumor cells.…

Anesthesia’s effect on consciousness solved, settling century-old scientific debate

Surgery would be inconceivable without general anesthesia, so it may come as a surprise that despite its 175-year history of medical use, doctors and scientists have been unable to explain how anesthetics temporarily render patients unconscious. A new study from Scripps Research published Thursday evening in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences (PNAS)…
