Stanford researchers found that children as young as 4 years old, under certain conditions, can discern “sins of omission” – misleading but technically accurate information. The researchers found that the order in which information is presented makes
Study led by the University of Bonn elucidated a previously unknown possible cause of dementia. A study led by the University of Bonn opens a new perspective with regard to the development of dementia. The scientists blocked
Nanoscale stretching or compressing significantly boosts the performance of ceria, a material widely used in catalytic converters and clean-energy technologies. A tiny amount of squeezing or stretching can produce a big boost in catalytic performance, according to
Quantum computing could outsmart current computing for complex problem solving, but only if scientists figure out how to make it practical. A Stanford team is investigating new materials that could become the basis for such an advance.
Researchers at the University of Bonn restore the memory performance of Methuselah mice to a juvenile stage. Memory performance decreases with increasing age. Cannabis can reverse these ageing processes in the brain. This was shown in mice
A new four-step “framework” aims to test the contribution of climate change to record-setting extreme weather events. After an unusually intense heat wave, downpour or drought, Noah Diffenbaugh and his research group inevitably receive phone calls and
Researchers at the universities of Cologne and Bonn uncover the link between protein aggregation and aging. Not only does our way of life determine how long we live but so too does our genetic material. Of particular
Cells must continually pass molecules in and out to sustain life. Computer scientists and molecular physiologists have developed a computer algorithm to capture how these crucial proteins work. Inside every plant or animal, proteins called transporters act
A research group at University Bonn uncovers how plants detect and defeat parasitic worms. Nematodes are a huge threat to agriculture since they parasitize important crops such as wheat, soybean, and banana; but plants can defend themselves.
People with social anxiety avoid situations in which they are exposed to judgment by others. Those affected also lead a withdrawn life and maintain contact above all on the Internet. Around one in ten people is affected
The University of Bonn is one of the most international universities in Germany and Europe. This is confirmed by the British magazine Times Higher Education (THE) in its recently published university ranking according to internationalization criteria. According
