Researchers Discover Molecular Mechanism of Long-Term Memory

Researchers at the University of Basel have discovered a molecular mechanism that plays a central role in intact long-term memory. This mechanism is also involved in physiological memory loss in old age. Many life forms, from worms to humans, have differentiated memory functions, such as short-term and long-term memory. Interestingly, at the cell and molecule […]

Engineers Place Thousands of Nanoscale Molecular Devices in Precise Orientation

Researchers placed more than 3,000 glowing moon-shaped nanoscale molecular devices into a flower-shaped instrument for indicating the polarization of light. The “moons” in each of the 12 petals points in a different direction, and only glows when struck by polarized light matching its orientation. The end result is a flower whose petals light up in […]
