Amputees often experience the sensation of a "phantom limb" -- a feeling that a missing body part is still there. That sensory illusion is closer to becoming a reality thanks to a team of engineers at the Johns Hopkins...
Cells in multicellular tissues adhere to each other. Epithelial tissues on the surface layer of the intestines and skin pack cells into a hexagonal (honeycomb) pattern, with cells adhering tightly to the six cells adjacent to them. The...
Fat cells, or adipocytes, are at the center of nutritional and metabolic balance. Adipogenesis -- the formation of mature fat cells from their precursor cells -- has been linked to obesity and related health problems such as cardiovascular...
Dogs are capable of understanding the emotions behind an expression on a human face. For example, if a dog turns its head to the left, it could be picking up that someone is angry, fearful or happy. If...
Getting robots to do things isn't easy: usually scientists have to either explicitly program them or get them to understand how humans communicate via language. But what if we could control robots more intuitively, using just hand gestures and...
