Les Baugh, who lost both arms in an electrical accident 40 years ago, was able to operate the system by simply thinking about moving his limbs after a groundbreaking procedure in Baltimore.
Researchers analysed alarm calls of Campbell’s monkeys in the Tai forest in Ivory Coast and Tiwai Island in Sierra Leone, and found their language was far more complex than thought.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 18 (UPI) — Kepler is back in the game; and for the first time since it was sidelined, scientists confirmed the existence of a new exoplanet located by the probe.
Most vaccines work by inducing an immune response characterized by neutralizing antibodies against the respective pathogen. An effective HIV vaccine has remained elusive so far, but researchers have continued to make progress, often employing innovative methods.

A newly published study finds crows have the brain power to solve higher-order, relational-matching tasks, and they can do so spontaneously. That means crows join humans, apes and monkeys in exhibiting advanced relational thinking, according to the research.
A new study describes, for the first time, a fundamental mechanism regulating a protein’s shape. The ‘Hairclip’ mechanism involves mutations acting on one side of a protein to open or close the configuration of amino acids on the other. The findings have implications for the manipulation of proteins, with potential applications in biotechnology and drug development.
