One Of Kind Ingestible Capsule To Regulate Hunger Manufactured

Taking advanced technology use, researchers made a capsule which will help to regulate appetite. This is the first-ever ingestible capsule to control appetite and wil be available for people, in the near future. The ingestible capsule was manufactured by a team of researchers at NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) and MIT Researchers, in collaboration. The capsule works by sending electrical stimulation to the stomach and regulating hunger levels.

Scientists Create Computer Software To Detect Mental Health Disorders

New research at Georgia State University's TReNDS Center may result in early diagnosis of severe diseases such as Alzheimer's, schizophrenia, and autism. Team of seven scientists created sophisticated computer software that could filter through massive amounts of brain imaging data and uncover surprising patterns connected to mental health conditions. The software was able to determine the exact "moment" when brain imaging strongly showed a… read-more

Artificial Intelligence Tool To Help Predict Heart Attacks

Researchers have developed an artificial intelligence-enabled tool that detects heart attacks in Humans. In addition, a medical test called coronary Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) captures 3D images of the heart and arteries and shows how much a patient’s arteries have narrowed. In the trial named 'SCOT-HEART', the CTA images correctly predicted heart attack risk for 1,611 people in the course of five years.

Japanese Researchers Appoint Seals To Collect Global Warming Data

Japanese researchers are training seals to survey under the thick ice sheet in Antarctica. To study global warming impacts, the researchers equipped seals with high-tech head-mounted measuring devices to gather observation data like water temperatures and salt levels, in areas with extremely harsh weather conditions. Notably, the data showed that the seals have covered a distance of 633km and a depth of 700m so far.

The Tallest Nation Has Shorter People: Dutch Study

Study by Dutch researchers on September 19 showed that the tallest nation in the world- the Netherlands is witnessing shorter people. Dutch women born in 2001 have a difference of 1.4cm (0.55 inches) from their 1980s counterparts and for Dutchmen it is of 1cm (0.39inches). The causes for this changing trend is transcending the level of immigration from shorter population groups. Study suggests Southern having height advantage over Northern… read-more

Delta Variant 8 Times More Likely To Escape Vaccine Immunity: Covid-19

Researchers from India and other countries have found in a study published in Nature journal that Delta variant of covid-19 was eight times more likely to break out the immunity gained by Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines. Also Delta variant is six times more likely to re-infect those who have retrieved from covid-19. Moreover, increased replication and reduced sensitivity have been achieved through natural infection or vaccines.

Electron Precipitation Intends To Cause Ozone Depletion In Mesosphere

The phenomenon known as electron precipitation causes aurorae, which has been detected as the same reason to cause ozone layer depletion in the mesosphere. This depletion in the ozone layer can cause severe climate changes in the earth. The depletion can particularly occur during aurorae. Moreover, this has been found out by a group of scientists headed by Prof. Yoshizumi Miyoshi from Nagoya University in Japan.

Scientists To Decode Brain Waves Of Paralysed People

Researchers have developed a “speech neuroprosthetic” that enables the brain waves of a paralysed individual to be decoded to appear on the computer screen. The device transfer the thoughts that the individual intends to speak. This is done with the help of implanting electrodes on the brain’s surface, over the area that controls speech. Scientists term it as a major step towards developing communication of paralysed people.
