(January 25, 2021) – Immediately after a traumatic brain injury and as long as one year later, there are increased levels of immune cells called ILCs in the brain promoting inflammation, which can worsen brain damage, scientists report.

How the brain masters such exquisite movements has now been described in the journal “Nature” by a team […]

Novel method to fine tune ‘twistronics’ — ScienceDaily

A group of international researchers at The University of Manchester have revealed a novel method that could fine tune the angle — “twist” — between atom-thin layers that form exotic human-made nanodevices called van der Waals heterostructures — and help accelerate the next generation of electronics. The new technique can achieve in situ dynamical rotation […]
