News and research highlights
Landmark study finds that the shape of the brain influences the way it works
The study has examined more than 10,000 different maps of human brain activity and found that the overall shape of a person’s brain exerts a far greater influence on how we think, feel and behave than its intricate neuronal connectivity.
The work opens opportunities to understand the effects of diseases like dementia and stroke by considering models of brain shape, which are far easier to deal with than models of the brain’s full array of connections.
Scientists discover an enzyme that turns air into electricity, providing a new clean source of energy
Australian scientists have discovered an enzyme that converts air into energy. The finding, published today, in the top journal Nature, reveals that this enzyme uses the low amounts of hydrogen in the atmosphere to create an electrical current. This finding paves the way to create devices that make energy from thin air.
