Combining MRI and optical microscopy promising for brain research

Meng Cui, at left, a Purdue University assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, and graduate student Yifeng Zhou, display part of a system that allows the simultaneous use of both a functional MRI and “two-photon microscopy” to study the brain. Credit: Purdue University image/Meng Cui Functional magnetic resonance imaging reveals changes in blood-oxygen levels in different parts of the brain, but the data show nothing about what is actually happening in and between brain cells, information needed to better…

Nanotechnology as Career

Nanotechnology – the science of the miniature, and the technology of the future – is one of the most exciting and wide area of research which may lead to the greatest technological advances of the 21st century. It is a global phenomenon and an emerging field, that finds its way into a myriad of industrial applications spanning across all areas of science and technology. A form of molecular engineering, it is the technology associated with the creation and scrutiny of…

New mechanism behind Parkinson’s disease revealed — ScienceDaily

OIST researchers have identified the precise toxic mechanism at work during an overabundance of the protein alpha-synuclein in neurons — the protein is a key causative agent in the development of Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease is a debilitating neurological illness that affects approximately 10 million people worldwide. It is marked by a progressive decline in physical function, the most iconic being uncontrollable tremors, and involves the malfunction and eventual death of nerve cells located in the brain. There is no…

Earth Magnetic Field & Sustainable Energy

To cushion global warming effects, cutting emissions is essential; this has made individuals, government and institutions look towards renewable and sustainable energy sources. These are naturally replenished sources that are harnessed to produce energy; examples are the sun and wind. Another source that is replenished naturally and has not been used as a source of energy is the Earth Magnetic Field or Geomagnetic Field. Planet Earth has its own magnetism originating from its inner core. It is weakly felt on…

Wind turbine physics: factors affecting performance

The efficiency of wind turbines depends on various factors such as location, geographical factors, mechanics, rotor shape/ size, etc. Output can be regulated by a constant or variable rotational speed, as well as adjustable and non-adjustable blades. Power in the Wind The importance of accurate wind speed data becomes clear when one understands how the speed affects the power. Consider a disk of area A with an air mass dm flowing through that area. In a time dt the mass…

Hacker News Suggestions for Engineering Team Blogs

See this comment page on Hacker News suggestions for engineering team blogs. Some of the suggested blog: Google Research Blog Giant Robots Smashing into Other Giant Robots Airbnb Engineering and Data Science Riot Games Engineering Google Testing Blog Netflix Technology Blog Stripe Engineering Blog Project Zero (computer security from Google) Slack Engineering Somehow the Hacker News discussion missed the Curious Cat Science and Engineering blog. It must be that we are not an “engineering team” blog. Related: Science and Engineering…

Get The Full Picture Of Stainless Steel Seamless Pipe Thermal Imaging

A thermocouple was installed in a Stainless steel seamless pipe line for monitoring the temperature of the fluid. Because the piping was all stainless steel, the material surface was too reflective to directly observe the fluid level with the thermal imager. So, to improve emissivity enough to allow camera use, the engineer applied some black electrical tape around the area of the pipe where the thermocouple was installed. The thermal imager revealed that the pipe was less than one-third filled…

Applications of Nanotechnology- A general view

Applications of Nanotechnology- A general view By- Dr.Ratnam Challa Physicists all over the world are concentrating on application oriented Physics rather than Fundamental Physics. The Physics of the Nanoworld is the latest field of active research in this century. The last few years has seen a gold rush to claim patents at the nanoscale. Over 800 nano-related patents were granted in 2003, and the numbers are increasing year to year. Corporations are already taking out broad-ranging patents on nanoscale discoveries…
