Man Who Was Paralyzed From The Neck Down Can Walk Again Thanks To Miracle Treatment

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Years ago, a man paralyzed in a surfing accident was able to walk again after undergoing a revolutionary stem cell treatment. Now, he says that his mobility has only continued to improve! Chris Barr was one out of only 10 people to undergo this experimental treatment in a study by the Mayo Clinic. It’s safe to say that the procedure was a success for this patient!

“I never dreamed I would have a recovery like this,” Chris said, according to Good Morning America.

Study shows ultra-thin two-dimensional materials can rotate the polarization of visible light

Posted by in categories: computing, materials

It has been known for centuries that light exhibits wave-like behavior in certain situations. Some materials are able to rotate the polarization, i.e. the direction of oscillation, of the light wave when the light passes through the material. This property is utilized in a central component of optical communication networks known as an “optical isolator” or “optical diode.” This component allows light to propagate in one direction but blocks all light in the other direction.

Machine Learning Uncovers New Ways to Kill Bacteria With Non-Antibiotic Drugs

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, robotics/AI

Human history was forever changed with the discovery of antibiotics in 1928. Infectious diseases such as pneumonia, tuberculosis and sepsis were widespread and lethal until penicillin made them treatable.

Surgical procedures that once came with a high risk of infection became safer and more routine. Antibiotics marked a triumphant moment in science that transformed medical practice and saved countless lives.

But antibiotics have an inherent caveat: When overused, bacteria can evolve resistance to these drugs. The World Health Organization estimated that these superbugs caused 1.27 million deaths around the world in 2019 and will likely become an increasing threat to global public health in the coming years.

For The First Time, Scientists Showed Structural, Brain-Wide Changes During Menstruation

Posted by in category: neuroscience

The constant ebb and flow of hormones that guide the menstrual cycle don’t just affect reproductive anatomy. They also reshape the brain, and a study has given us insight into how this happens.

Led by neuroscientists Elizabeth Rizor and Viktoriya Babenko of the University of California Santa Barbara, a team of researchers tracked 30 women who menstruate over their cycles, documenting in detail the structural changes that take place in the brain as hormonal profiles fluctuate.

The results, which are yet to be peer-reviewed but can be found on preprint server bioRxiv, suggest that structural changes in the brain during menstruation may not be limited to those regions associated with the menstrual cycle.

The Universe’s Accelerated Expansion Might be Slowing Down

Posted by in categories: cosmology, evolution

The universe is still expanding at an accelerating rate, but it may have slowed down recently compared to a few billion years ago, early results from the most precise measurement of its evolution yet suggested Thursday.

While the preliminary findings are far from confirmed, if they hold up it would further deepen the mystery of dark energy—and likely mean there is something important missing in our understanding of the cosmos.

These signals of our universe’s changing speeds were spotted by the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), which is perched atop a telescope at the Kitt Peak National Observatory in the US state of Arizona.

Quantinuum Quantum Computer using Microsoft’s ‘Logical Quantum Bits’ runs 14,000 Experiments with No Errors

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics

A team of computer engineers from quantum computer maker Quantinuum, working with computer scientists from Microsoft, has found a way to greatly reduce errors when running experiments on a quantum computer. The combined group has published a paper describing their work and results on the arXiv preprint server.

Computer scientists have been working for several years to build a truly useful quantum computer that could achieve quantum supremacy. Research has come a long way, most of which has involved adding more qubits.

But such research has been held up by one main problem—quantum computers make a lot of errors. To overcome this problem, researchers have been looking for ways to reduce the number of errors or to correct those that are made before results are produced.
