The skin is the body’s largest organ. And it can let in as much or more of certain air pollutants than enter through the lungs, a new study finds.
A combination of physics, biology and engineering lets scientists use light to trigger actions by specific brain cells. Called optogenetics, this technology is shining new light on how the brain works.
New research shows bubble-powered drugs can travel upstream, against the flow of blood, to seal wounds shut.
Scientists had thought that hummingbird tongues work through capillary action. A new study, though, concludes they work like little pumps.
Both e-cigarettes and tobacco products can release large amounts of nicotine during use. Nicotine is the chemical that makes tobacco addictive — and the teen brain is especially vulnerable to it.
