A new light appears at the end of the tunnel: chemists at the University of Oxford in the UK have found a way to turn plastic bottles, bags and other packaging into a clean source of hydrogen that has the ability to be reused as a clean fuel…

Neurons regenerate most of our lives

It has always been said that the neurons that we have when we die are the same that we have when we are born. Our neural network does not regenerate and, for this reason, the weakening of our grey matter can cause memory loss, learning difficulties or different diseases. However, a study published in the journal "Nature Medicine" has shown that there is an area of the brain in which new neurons are born. Llorens-Martín's team analysed brain tissue samples from 13 healthy donor subjects…

14-year-old teenager awarded for achieving a breakthrough in the treatment against Covid

Anika Chebrolu, a student from Independence High School in Frisco, Texas (USA), has developed a molecule that binds to a protein in the SARS-CoV-2 virus and stops this virus from working. It is a hopeful finding to find a cure. This discovery has led her to win a contest, the 3M Young Scientist Challenge, awarded with $ 25,000. Using a computer program, she discovered how the molecule could bind to the virus, based on a database of more than 682 million compounds…

This first model may be used in the future for hospitals, last-mile mobility or tourist use in historic cit…
