94 Physicists 'squeeze' light to cool microscopic drum below quantum limit
Physicists have cooled a mechanical object to a temperature lower than previously thought possible, below the so-called 'quantum limit.' www.sciencedaily.com/releas...
93 New avenue for anti-depressant therapy discovered
Researchers have made a ground-breaking discovery revealing new molecular information on how the brain regulates depression and anxiety. In so doing, they identified a new molecule that alleviates anxiety and depressive behavior in rodents. www.sciencedaily.com/releas...
92 Link found between concussions, Alzheimer's disease
Concussions accelerate Alzheimer's disease-related brain atrophy and cognitive decline in people who are at genetic risk for the condition, research has found. The findings show promise for detecting the influence of concussion on neurodegeneration. www.sciencedaily.com/releas...
91 Fast radio burst tied to distant dwarf galaxy, and perhaps magnetar
Since first detected 10 years ago, fast radio bursts have puzzled astronomers. Unlike pulsars, they flash irregularly, most only once, and only for milliseconds. And they seem to come from outside the galaxy, meaning they are very energetic. A team of astronomers has now localized the only repeating burst, to a distant dwarf galaxy. The researcher who created the rapid data collection and analysis software sees a connection to magnetars. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/01/17010413354 read more
91 Mediterranean diet may have lasting effects on brain health
Older people who followed a Mediterranean diet retained more brain volume over a three-year period than those who did not follow the diet as closely, new research shows. But contrary to earlier studies, eating more fish and less meat was not related to changes in the brain. www.sciencedaily.com/releas...
91 How to be winner in the game of evolution
A new study helps explain why different groups of animals differ dramatically in their number of species, and how this is related to differences in their body forms and ways of life. www.sciencedaily.com/releas...
91 Acupuncture may alleviate babies' excessive crying (infantile colic)
Acupuncture may be an effective treatment option for babies with infantile colic -- those who cry for more than three hours a day on three or more days of the week -- reveals research. www.sciencedaily.com/releas...
90 More frequent hurricanes not necessarily stronger on Atlantic U.S. coast
Active Atlantic hurricane periods, like the one we are in now, are not necessarily a harbinger of more, rapidly intensifying hurricanes along the US coast, according to new research. www.sciencedaily.com/releas...
89 New data show heightened risk of birth defects with antidepressants prescribed during pregnancy
Antidepressants prescribed to pregnant women could increase the chance of having a baby with birth defects, new research indicates. www.sciencedaily.com/releas...
88 Hidden secrets of Orion's clouds
This spectacular new image is one of the largest near-infrared high-resolution mosaics of the Orion A molecular cloud, the nearest known massive star factory, lying about 1350 light-years from Earth. It reveals many young stars and other objects normally buried deep inside the dusty clouds. www.sciencedaily.com/releas...
