Biologists have shown that the electrical activity in developing neurons can change the transmitters that neurons make and use to communicate.


Researchers from Delft University announced a new type of nanopore devices that may significantly impact the way DNA molecules are screened.


Focusing this year on the role of international cooperation toward advancing science, the new biennial international forum will facilitate high-level, global discussion of major topics on science and science policy.


A multidisciplinary team of researchers has succeeded in observing single-molecule interactions functioning in their native environment.


Neural circuitry is constantly changing to meet the challenges of its environment. Neuroscientist Tobias Bonhoeffer tells how new techniques enable researchers to watch this process of adaptation as never before.


Since the first exoplanet, discovered in 1995, more than 460 others have been found. While astronomers have been able to measure the size, orbital characteristics, and even the molecular make up of the atmospheres, many mysteries about their formation and evolution remain.


Are we born with an innate sense of direction, or is it learned? Research from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology's Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience suggests that the brain comes hard-wired with working navigational neurons.


Technique could pave way for manganites and other oxides to replace silicon in thin-film electronics, memory storage and other technologies.


New research looks to explain how galaxies weighing in at about 300 million solar masses become "active."


In the quest for faster and cheaper computers, scientists have imaged pore structures in insulation material at sub-nanometer scales for the first time. Understanding these structures could substantially enhance computer performance and power usage of integrated circuits.
