How The Brain Enables Us To Rapidly Focus Attention

December 31, 2018 Syndicated 0

Researchers have discovered a key mechanism in the brain that may underlie our ability to rapidly focus attention. Our brains are continuously bombarded with information from the senses, yet our level of vigilance to such input varies, allowing us to selectively focus on one conversation and not another.

Researchers Develop 128Mb STT-MRAM With World’s Fastest Write Speed For Embedded Memory

December 28, 2018 Syndicated 0

A research team has successfully developed 128Mb-density STT-MRAM (spin-transfer torque magnetoresistive random access memory) with a write speed of 14 ns for use in embedded memory applications, such as cache in IOT and AI. This is currently the world’s fastest write speed for embedded memory application with a density over 100Mb and will pave the way for the mass-production of large capacity STT-MRAM.

Engineers Fly First-Ever Plane With No Moving Parts (VIDEO)

November 24, 2018 Syndicated 0

MIT engineers have built and flown the first-ever plane with no moving parts. Instead of propellers or turbines, the light aircraft is powered by an “ionic wind” — a silent but mighty flow of ions that is produced aboard the plane, and that generates enough thrust to propel the plane over a sustained, steady flight.

Biomaterials With ‘Frankenstein Proteins’ Help Heal Tissue

October 15, 2018 Syndicated 0

Biomed engineers have demonstrated that, by injecting an artificial protein made from a solution of ordered and disordered segments, a solid scaffold forms in response to body heat, and in a few weeks seamlessly integrates into tissue — allowing them precise control of materials in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
