Electronically picking your brain -- for market research
A researcher wants to scrap the traditional electronic and paper survey approaches to gathering marketing and information systems data in favor of scanning your brainwaves.

Natural nomads, leatherback turtles opt to stay in place
Endangered leatherback sea turtles are known for their open-ocean migratory nature and nomadic foraging habits -- traveling thousands of miles. But a naturalist and his colleagues have discovered an area along the Mozambique coast that the turtles have made their permanent home, according to a study.

Cooling technique helps researchers 'target' a major component for a new collider
Researchers have recently developed a new ultra-low-friction sliding contact mechanism that uses chilled water to remove heat from a key component of a next-generation collider.

Exotic insulator may hold clue to key mystery of modern physics
Experiments using laser light and pieces of gray material the size of fingernail clippings may offer clues to a fundamental scientific riddle: What is the relationship between the everyday world of classical physics and the hidden quantum realm that obeys entirely different rules?

What makes your voice yours?
What are the characteristics of the way you say, “hello,” (or anything else for that matter) that makes you recognizable over the phone? Despite the increasing amount of literature on personal voice quality, very little is actually known about how to characterize the sound of an individual speaker.

Fast, efficient sperm tails inspire nanobiotechnology
Just like workers in a factory, enzymes can create a final product more efficiently if they are stuck together in one place and pass the raw material from enzyme to enzyme, assembly line-style. That's according to scientists who have recreated a 10-step biological pathway with all the enzymes tethered to nanoparticles.

Evaluation of scientific rigor in animal research
The “reproducibility crisis” in biomedical research has led to questions about the scientific rigor in animal research, and thus the ethical justification of animal experiments. In new research, scientists have assessed scientific rigor in animal experimentation in Switzerland. The study found widespread deficiencies in the reporting of experimental methodology.

Names and symbols of four newly discovered elements announced
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry has approved the name and symbols for four elements: nihonium (Nh), moscovium (Mc), tennessine (Ts), and oganesson (Og), respectively for element 113, 115, 117, and 118. The exploration of new elements continues, and scientists are searching for elements beyond the seventh row of the periodic table.

Link found between antidepressant use and congenital anomalies or stillbirths
Pregnant women who take a specific type of antidepressant in early pregnancy have a small but significantly greater risk of having babies with major congenital anomalies (sometimes referred to as birth defects) or stillbirths compared with those who did not take these antidepressants, suggests a dose-response analysis.
