New study allows brain and artificial neurons to link up over the web

Brain-digital interface concept illustration (stock image). Credit: © knowhowfootage / Adobe Stock Brain functions are made possible by circuits of spiking neurons, connected together by microscopic, but highly complex links called synapses. In this new study, published in the scientific journal Nature Scientific Reports, the scientists created a hybrid neural network where biological and artificial…

Environmental oxygen triggers loss of webbed digits

African clawed frog (stock image). Credit: © Nathan / Adobe Stock Free fingers have many obvious advantages on land, such as in locomotion and grasping, while webbed fingers are typical of aquatic or gliding animals. But both amphibians and amniotes -- which include mammals, reptiles, and birds -- can have webbed digits. In new research…

Comet discovered to have its own northern lights

This composite is a mosaic comprising four individual NAVCAM images taken from 19 miles (31 kilometers) from the center of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on Nov. 20, 2014. The image resolution is 10 feet (3 meters) per pixel. Credit: ESA/Rosetta/NAVCAM, CC BY-SA IGO 3.0 Data from NASA instruments aboard the ESA (European Space Agency) Rosetta mission have…

Process that might have led to first organic molecules

Ocean bubbles (stock image). Credit: © kichigin19 / stock.adobe.com New research led by the American Museum of Natural History and funded by NASA identifies a process that might have been key in producing the first organic molecules on Earth about 4 billion years ago, before the origin of life. The process, which is similar to…

Do big tadpoles turn into big frogs? It’s complicated

Tadpoles (stock image). Credit: © suwatwongkham / stock.adobe.com If you have any children in your life, imagine for a moment that they don't look anything like their parents, they don't eat anything humans normally eat, and they're active only while adults sleep. While that might sound like an idea from a work of surreal fiction,…

Hubble captures crisp new portrait of Jupiter’s storms

Hubble's new image of Jupiter and Europa. Credit: NASA, ESA, STScI, A. Simon (Goddard Space Flight Center), M.H. Wong (University of California, Berkeley), and the OPAL team The latest image of Jupiter, taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope on Aug. 25, 2020, was captured when the planet was 406 million miles from Earth. Hubble's sharp…

New Hubble data suggests there is an ingredient missing from current dark matter theories

This Hubble Space Telescope image shows the massive galaxy cluster MACSJ 1206. Embedded within the cluster are the distorted images of distant background galaxies, seen as arcs and smeared features. These distortions are caused by the dark matter in the cluster, whose gravity bends and magnifies the light from faraway galaxies, an effect called gravitational…

Children’s immune response more effective against COVID-19

Mother and child in medical office, concept (stock image). Credit: © famveldman / stock.adobe.com Children and adults exhibit distinct immune system responses to infection by the virus that causes COVID-19, a finding that helps explain why COVID-19 outcomes tend to be much worse in adults, researchers from Yale and Albert Einstein College of Medicine report…

Possible marker of life spotted on Venus

Planet Venus (stock image; elements furnished by NASA). Credit: © Igor_Filonenko / stock.adobe.com An international team of astronomers today announced the discovery of a rare molecule -- phosphine -- in the clouds of Venus. On Earth, this gas is only made industrially or by microbes that thrive in oxygen-free environments. Astronomers have speculated for decades…
