'Forrest Gump' mice show too much of a good thing, can be bad
A line of genetically modified mice that Western University scientists call (2013-06-20)

Scientists set out to measure how we perceive naturalness
Scientists at the National Physical Laboratory are working towards producing the world's first model that will predict how we perceive naturalness. The results could help make synthetic products so good that they are interpreted by our senses as being fully equivalent to the (2008-07-03)

Vegetable scales with a mind of their own
What was the number you were supposed to enter for the chili-pepper on the self-service scales? Was it 67 or 76? And the number for the bananas? The latest self-service scales automatically recognize what the customer has placed on them. (2008-08-14)

'Tis better to give than to receive?
Providing support to a loved one offers benefits, to the giver, not just the recipient, a new UCLA neuroimaging study reveals. (2011-11-09)

CU-Boulder research finds link between physical and interpersonal warmth
People appear to trust others more when they experience physical warmth, according to new research by of University of Colorado at Boulder assistant professor Lawrence E. Williams, who says simply handling a hot cup of coffee can change one's attitude toward a stranger. (2008-10-23)

Genetic algorithms 'naturally select' better satellite orbits
Some Earth-orbiting satellites will be able to keep in touch longer with controllers on the planet's surface thanks to computer programs that mimic Darwin's evolutionary model of survival-of-the-fittest. (2001-10-15)

Brain's method of creating mental images differs with the source of cues received
Research conducted at UC Berkeley reveals new insights into how the human brain processes the sensory cues it receives. The findings could help in the development of virtual reality applications, including remote surgery technology. (2002-11-21)

Elusive prey
New research by scientists at the University of Massachusetts Medical School published this week in Current Biology offers evidence that for the first time illuminates a biological and ecological path that links genes to molecule to neural circuit to behavior to environment. (2011-07-28)

TECNALIA develops smart furniture
TECNALIA has taken another step in the manufacture of furniture of the future. Along with GRUMAL, companies, NUEVA LINEA, ELSON ELECTRONICA and EKOLEDS,, and framed in the WoodTouch project, it has developed a new concept of touch interaction with furniture and wood surfaces, this concept could be used to add intelligence to the furniture around us in the future.

Digital surgery with touch feedback could improve medical training
Combining the sense of touch with 3-D computer models of organs, researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are developing a new approach to training surgeons, much as pilots learn to fly on flight simulators. With collaborators at Harvard Medical School, Albany Medical Center, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the team is developing a virtual simulator that will allow surgeons to touch, feel, and manipulate computer-generated organs with actual tool handles used in minimally invasive surgery.

Distant prayer does not improve clinical outcome for patients undergoing coronary procedures
Praying for patients undergoing heart procedures off-site or giving them bedside therapy involving music, imagery, and touch (MIT) does not measurably improve their clinical outcome, suggests a study published in this week's issue of The Lancet. However, the authors note that patients receiving MIT therapy did have a lower mortality rate at 6 months. (2005-07-14)
