Electrons have split personalities depending on how many of them are around, suggests new research that may solve a physics mystery about electrical currents in superconductors.
People with injuries that destroyed part of a muscle could be helped with an experimental treatment that uses a pig bladder as a muscle scaffold, researchers say.
Fiber helps cut your weight by making the body produce the same chemical found in vinegar, which changes the brain cells that regulate hunger.
Scientists have built nanobots that can respond to chemical cues and operate inside a living animal. More than that, they can operate as logic gates, essentially acting as real computers.
You could generate the electricity needed to charge your smartphone just by walking around, with a new device called a triboelectric generator, researchers say.
The action of a little-understood piece of genetic material could one day help treat a common skin disease.
Time actually doesn't heal all wounds, but in some cases, engineered proteins might help speed up the process.
A phenomenon first seen decades ago and revisited in a new experiment involving quarks could extend one of the most successful theories in physics.
Researchers have directly measured a photon's 27-dimensional quantum state, which could make it simpler to build quantum-mechanical technologies such as quantum computers and unbreakable codes.
Any device that picks up on the presence of light has to absorb its energy, and with it, the photons. At least, that was what scientists thought until now.
Researchers have found a way to get quantum bits to last long enough to do computations with, using the magnetic properties of a rare earth element called holmium and the symmetry of platinum.
