Scientists reveal mechanism that causes irritable bowel syndrome

Researchers have identified the biological mechanism that explains why some people experience abdominal pain when they eat certain foods. The finding paves the way for more efficient treatment of irritable bowel syndrome and other food intolerances. The study was...

One small alcoholic drink a day is linked to an increased risk of atrial fibrillation

A study of nearly 108,000 people has found that people who regularly drink a modest amount of alcohol are at increased risk of atrial fibrillation, a condition where the heart beats in an abnormal rhythm. The study found that, compared to drinking no alcohol at all,...

Spreading the sound

Scientists are studying the motion of sound waves in glassy materials using a new theoretical model and find that they can diffuse like fluids, which may lead to the design of more resilient touchscreens.

Conductive nature in crystal structures revealed at magnification of 10 million times

In groundbreaking materials research, a team has made a discovery that blends the best of two sought-after qualities for touchscreens and smart windows -- transparency and conductivity.

Glass frogs living near roaring waterfalls wave hello to attract mates

A conservationist has discovered that the glass frog Sachatamia orejuela can be added to the list of species that make use of visual cues in response to their acoustic environments. This is the first time a member of the glass frog family (Centrolenidae) has been...

Could altering mealtimes prevent development of Type 2 diabetes?

An innovative new study is set to examine if changing our mealtimes to earlier or later in the day could reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

An unexpected, and novel, target for prostate cancer: Our biological clock

Researchers find that CRY-1, a regulator of circadian rhythms, promotes tumor progression by altering DNA repair.

SARS-CoV-2 antibody test helps select donor blood samples for therapeutic use

Researchers have developed and applied a robust, versatile antibody test to assist health authorities in managing the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, according to a new study.

Scientists offer road map to improve environmental observations in the Indian Ocean

A group of more than 60 scientists have provided recommendations to improve the Indian Ocean Observing System (IndOOS), a basin-wide monitoring system to better understand the impacts of human-caused climate change in a region that has been warming faster than any...

Researchers rewind the clock to calculate age and site of supernova blast

Astronomers are winding back the clock on the expanding remains of a nearby, exploded star. By using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, they retraced the speedy shrapnel from the blast to calculate a more accurate estimate of the location and time of the stellar detonation.
