Hacking a pressure sensor to track gradual motion along marine faults
Hacking a pressure sensor to track gradual motion along marine faults
Deep below the ocean's surface, shielded from satellite signals, the gradual movement of the seafloor - including along faults that can unleash deadly earthquakes and tsunamis - goes largely undetected. As a result, we know distressingly little about motion along the fault that lies just off the Pacific Northwest coast.

10 quadrillionths of a second to extraction: Researchers set time limit for ultrafast perovskite solar cells
Researchers have quantified the astonishingly high speeds at which future solar cells would have to operate in order to stretch what are presently seen as natural limits on their energy conversion efficiency. The timescale that we calculated is now the time limit that we have to operate within if we want to create super-efficient, hot carrier solar devices.

Deep brain stimulation helps Parkinson’s patients regain independence
"Knowing a patient before they've had DBS and after is often like knowing a completely different person," says Yale Medicine movement disorders neurologist Amar Patel, MD. Every year, approximately 60,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. In addition, about 10 million people in the United States have essential tremor -a neurological condition that causes a person's hands, head, or voice to shake.

Dino-killing asteroid sped up bird evolution
Human activities could change the pace of evolution, similar to what occurred 66 million years ago when a giant asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs, leaving modern birds as their only descendants. That's one conclusion drawn by the authors of a new study just published in  Systematic Biology. Dr Daniel Field from the Milner Centre for Evolution at the University of Bath and Cornell PhD candidate Jacob Berv suggest that the meteor-induced mass extinction (a.k.a.

New nerve degeneration molecule identified
A discovery in a transparent roundworm has brought scientists one step closer to understanding why nerves degenerate. University of Queensland researchers have identified a key molecule that protects the axons of nerve cells from degenerating. Queensland Brain Institute researcher Associate Professor Massimo Hilliard said axons - long, thread-like nerve cell sections that transmit information - were often the first parts of neurons destroyed in neurodegenerative disease.
