DNA constraints control structure of attached macromolecules

... macromolecules with DNA constraints can be either reversible or irreversible, depending on which chemical trigger is used. Like a switch, a particular molecular shape could be turned on and off. "Another key aspect of DNA constraints is their programmability," Silverman said. "By placing two or more constrain...

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), a harmless noninvasive technique using brief magnetic pulses, was applied to the volunteers' visual cortex -- the area at th...

Limiting the damage in stroke
