During the financial crisis, billions were spent to rescue banks. Besides the size of the banks, the centrality within the global financial network was also pivotal for financial institutions to...
Laser pulses have been used in a few laboratories worldwide to study light-induced dynamics in atoms and molecules. Now a powerful laser system enables an entirely new class of experiments.
Scientists have managed to introduce nano antibodies into living cells. The "nanobodies" open up a new door to treatments for diseases that have so far been untreatable.
Climate change could turn one of Africa's driest regions into a very wet one. Scientists find evidence in computer simulations for a possible abrupt change to heavy seasonal rainfall in the Sahel.
Fresh water springs in oceans are widespread, but easy to overlook. Science hasn’t as yet given them much thought. For many people living on the...
Scientific misconduct: False representation of data, insufficient documentation of data and breach of duty of supervision
The physical effort associated with executing an action hences a decision factor. Understanding how we estimate movement effort is thus necessary to understand how we take decisions.
As the cell's molecular control center, the mTor kinase regulates cellular metabolism, growth and division. Scientists succeeded in locating a crucial off-switch for the central cell control.
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behavior of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
How can the responsibility for refugees be distributed more fairly — globally and within the EU? The MEDAM team launched its first annual assessment report addressing current challenges.
