Whiskered robot used to model for monkey business

Researchers at the University of Sheffield have fitted a robotic rat with a monkey brain model in a bid to increase the machine’s perception.

New carbon dioxide emissions model

With the help of new models for a prescribed atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration, scientists from all over Europe have now calculated for the first time the extent to which the global carbon dioxide emissions must be reduced to halt global warming.

Model Predicts Individual's Vitamin D Needs

Your skin tone and the amount of sunshine you receive--in addition to what foods you eat--all can influence the amount of vitamin D that your body has on hand for optimum health.

Model predicts individual's vitamin D needs

In a preliminary and apparently first-of-its-kind study, Agricultural Research Service research physiologists have developed a preliminary model that predicts an individual's vitamin D requirements.

Model shows how the brain recognises objects

Researchers have developed a model accurately predicts human performance on certain visual-perception tasks, which suggests that it’s a good indication of what actually happens in the brain.

Model system for energy crops sequenced

As researchers work towards developing sustainable sources of clean renewable energy, perennial grasses have emerged as major candidates for the commercial production of cellulosic biofuels from feedstocks.

Beaches become a model for preservation

While most people head to Myrtle Beach for vacation, a group of scientists have been hitting the famous South Carolina beach for years to figure out how to keep the sand from washing away.

Key new ingredient in climate model

For the first time, climate scientists from across the country have successfully incorporated the nitrogen cycle into global simulations for climate change, questioning previous assumptions regarding carbon feedback.

Model 704 Emissions Analyser

The Model 704 Emissions Analyser has been developed to meet the demand for a portable combustion analyser that can be used for combustion efficiency optimisation as well as for monitoring emissions for environmental purposes.

New epigenetic model blurs nature or nurture debate

Recent research complicates the debate over whether nature or nurture plays the most important role in complex diseases such as psychiatric disorders, heart disease, and cancer.

Genetics: A global model for the origin of species

In recent years, consistent patterns of biodiversity have been identified over space, time organism type and geographical region.

Promising biotechnology model of Parkinson's

A genetically engineered mouse reproduces many of the non-motor symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease seen in humans and sheds light on their possible causes.

First climate-based biotechnology model of Dengue outbreaks

Dengue Fever and Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever are the most important vector-borne viral diseases in the World. Researchers have used global climatological data and vegetation indices from Costa Rica, to predict Dengue outbreaks in the region.

Blood vessel model challenged

In-growth and new generation of blood vessels have been thought to occur through a branching and further growth of a vessel against a chemical gradient of growth factors.

Computer model predicts brain tumour growth

Researchers from Brown University and other institutions have developed a computational computer model of how brain tumours grow and evolve.

Model 312 Portable GC

The Model 312 Portable GC offers nearly universal response for organic and inorganic compounds CCD: Combustible compounds such as hydrocarbons.

Mathematical model to predict flu response

Researchers have developed a mathematical model to predict immune responses to infection with influenza A viruses, including novel viruses such as the emergent 2009 influenza A.

New model for drug discovery

Chemists and anaesthesiologists have identified a fluorescent anaesthetic compound that will assist researchers in obtaining more precise information about how anaesthetics work in the body

First chikungunya model

Researchers have developed the first animal model of the infection caused by chikungunya virus, an emerging arbovirus associated with large-scale epidemics.

Delirium mouse model helps researchers understand the condition’s causes

A new mouse model of delirium developed by Wellcome Trust researchers has provided an important insight into the mechanisms underlying the condition, bringing together two theories as to its causes. Details of the research are published in the Journal of Neuroscience.
