Satisfactory sexual intercourse for couples lasts from 3 to 13 minutes, contrary to popular fantasy about the need for hours of sexual activity.

The untrained eye

College-age men confuse friendly non-verbal cues with cues for sexual interest because the men have a less discerning eye than women - but their female peers aren't far behind.

Visualising magnetic fields

Researchers have succeeded in a direct, three-dimensional visualisation of magnetic fields inside solid, non-transparent materials.

Diseases share genes

Scientists have identified six new genes which play a role in the development of type 2 diabetes, and among the group is a prostate cancer gene.

Smallpox misinformation

Many people are unaware of one of the greatest achievements of medical science - the eradication of smallpox from the world over 40 years ago.

Aiding drug discovery

Determining the structure of unknown natural compounds is a slow and expensive part of drug screening and development - but this may now change.

Genes in action

Researchers describe the development of gene probe eye drops that make it possible to monitor and detect tissue repair in the brain of living organisms using MRI.

Anti-restenosis drug

A new medication that researchers had hoped would reduce the risk of arterial renarrowing after stenting has turned in a disappointing performance.

Drug-coated balloon

An angioplasty balloon coated with a drug that reduces re-narrowing of the coronary arteries appears to be more effective than a drug-eluting stent.

Vaccine for Ebola virus

An international team of researchers has successfully tested several Ebola vaccines in primates and are now looking to adapt them for human...

Software processes mountains of genome data

New software is one of a new breed of computer programs able to accurately process the mountains of genome data flowing from the latest generation of gene decoding machines

Is graphene poised to be the new silicon?

Research show that graphene could be a leading candidate to replace silicon in applications ranging from high-speed computer chips to biochemical sensors.

Why there is more matter than antimatter?

A new physics discovery explores why there is more matter than antimatter in the universe, turning to B-meson decay for answers.

New biomarker for HIV

An increase in the CD163+/CD16+ monocyte subset could be a biomarker for the progression of HIV disease, according to researchers.

The future of computing

The silicon chip, which has supplied several decades' worth of remarkable increases in computing power and speed, looks unlikely to sustain...

Brain development

Scientists have identified a gene that, in mice, is critical for these stem cells to divide correctly. Without it, they fail and die.

Bitter melon sweetness

Scientists have uncovered the therapeutic properties of bitter melon that make it a powerful treatment for Type 2 diabetes.

Folate scores big

The vitamin B chemical, folate, found in leafy green vegetables, beans and nuts has now been shown to blunt the damaging effects of heart attack.

Stroke brain cell damage

Researchers have identified a key player in the killing of brain cells after a stroke or a seizure - the protein asparagine endopeptidase.

Key to REM disorder

There is new promise on the horizon for those who suffer from REM Sleep Behaviour Disorder (RBD) according to researchers.
