Newborn neurons like to hang with the 'in' crowd
...network of brain cells, at least in mice living in bare
standard cages. Providing the mice with a stimulating, enriched environment—large cages filled with running wheels, colored tunnels and playmates—boost the number of neurons that manage to hook up with the existing network to 80 percent, reinforcing ...

Sensors, a smart dose of medicine for cancer treatment
...cial packaged diodes out there we needed diodes in bare
die form with some novel properties so we developed the diodes ourselves, here at the Tyndall Institute," says Jaksic. The arrays are extremely accurate and can track radiation at micro-Gray resolution over millimetres of spatial resolution. These...
