Team chart flavor's favored flow
Team chart flavor’s favored flow
The sweetness of a peppermint candy can be experienced with the nose pinched shut, but flavor is detectable only when the pinch is released and volatiles in the candy are exhaled back into the nose where smell receptors exist. Exactly how this happens was not known, but now a multi-disciplinary team at Yale University has built a 3-D model of the mechanisms that help bring flavor into our lives.

Metal defects can be eliminated by cyclic loading
Metal defects can be eliminated by cyclic loading
It's a well-known characteristic of metals that repeated bending in the same place can cause the material to weaken and eventually break; this phenomenon, known as metal fatigue, can cause serious damage to metal components subjected to repeated stress. But now, researchers from MIT, Carnegie Mellon University, Xi'an Jiaotong University, and elsewhere have found that under certain conditions, repeated slight stretching of nanoscale metal pieces can actually strengthen a material by eliminating defects in its crystalline structure.

Brain chemical aids tic control in Tourette Syndrome, say researchers
PA 153/15 A chemical in the brain could potentially be harnessed to help young people with Tourette Syndrome (TS) to overcome the physical and vocal tics associated with the neurological disorder, say researchers. In a paper published in the journal Trends in Cognitive Sciences, academics from The University of Nottingham reviewed recent evidence that the neurochemical known as Gamma Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is responsible for dampening down the hyperactivity that causes the repetitive and involuntary movements and noises.

Battery experiments highlight Stanford’s dual mission
A Stanford PhD student guides an undergraduate through two years of tests that confound two decades of assumptions on lithium-ion battery design. The findings could lead to better batteries, while the research process works hand-in-glove with teaching. A Stanford undergraduate has contributed to a discovery that confounds the conventional wisdom in lithium-ion battery design, pointing the way toward storage devices with more power, greater capacity, and faster charge and discharge capabilities.

Scientists confirm: New technique could make cement manufacturing carbon-neutral
Reuters For every ton of cement produced, the process creates approximately a ton of carbon dioxide, all of which accounts for roughly 7 percent of the world's carbon dioxide emissions. Concrete surrounds us in our cities and stretches across the land in a vast network of highways. It's so ubiquitous that most of us take it for granted, but many aren't aware that concrete's key ingredient, ordinary portland cement, is a major producer of greenhouse gases.
