High pressure processing in food preservation

Various forms of heat and chemicals are the usual methods of preserving food. Now, however, high pressure processing has overcome its traditional cost disadvantages and is sparking new business opportunities for food processors around the world. Sean Ottewell reports.

Enzyme triggers switch in glucose processing

A study investigating how a cellular enzyme affects blood glucose levels in mice provides clues to pathways that may be involved in processes including the regulation of longevity and the proliferation of tumour cells.

Miniature-scale processing for research and product development

When it comes to producing test quantities and samples of new products, many manufacturers rely on production equipment - resulting in considerable downtime on the production floor.

Sleep deprivation affects processing

Sleep deprivation causes some people to shift from a more automatic, implicit process of information categorization to a more controlled, explicit process.

Brain innately separates objects for processing

For unknown reasons, the human brain distinctly separates the handling of images of living things from images of non-living things, processing each image type in a different area of the brain.
