New findings hint toward reversing hearing loss

July 16, 2015 - 11:51am
Studying mice, scientists have identified two signaling molecules that are required for the proper development of a part of the inner ear called the cochlea. Without both signals, the embryo does not produce enough of the cells that eventually make up the adult cochlea, resulting in a shortened cochlear duct and impaired hearing.

Researchers identify zebra-like stripes of plasma in a patch of space

July 14, 2015 - 6:24am
Since the early 1970s, orbiting satellites have picked up on noise-like plasma waves very close to the Earth's magnetic field equator. This "equatorial noise," as it was then named, seemed to be an unruly mess of electric and magnetic fields oscillating at different frequencies in the form of plasma waves.

Scientists expect evolutionary changes from loud, bright world

July 14, 2015 - 6:03am
Humans take for granted the noise and lights associated with cities and other developments across the landscape.  For other creatures, these noisy and bright conditions lead to changes in behavior and activity such as the timing or pitch of a bird song in the morning.  Scientists have long recorded these changes and now seek to understand whether these altered environments are driving evolution itself.

Important step in breast cancer research

July 13, 2015 - 7:53am
Scientists have been working for some time on a new technique to detect breast cancer. The technique based on the physical principle of photoacoustics, has been christened PAMmography. It uses short bursts of light that cause ultrasonic waves to be generated in places with high density of blood vessels, such as in the vicinity of malignant tumors. The scientists show that breast tumors have specific manifestations and forms in images made using their technique.
