Japan volcanic islands may hold keys to coral survival
The key to the survival of the world's threatened coral reefs may lie in the waters surrounding a small volcanic island off the coast of Japan, scientists say.
Scientists grow a near life-like mouse embryo
Scientists use stem cells to grow a near life-like mouse embryo in a lab in Cambridge, a breakthrough with implications for research into the early stages of human pregnancy.
Brain-computer interface allows completely locked-in people to communicate
Scientists develop a way of communicating with patients who are totally paralysed and unable to talk by measuring the blood oxygen levels in their brains to decipher their thoughts.
Satellite images help scientists predict sea level rises
A new NASA-funded database of satellite images and data allows scientists to more accurately predict sea level rises by tracking the velocity of glaciers and ice sheets in near real-time.
The rise in ocean levels is alarming
Ocean levels are rising due to change in temperature of the arctic and monitors of the trend say we should all be concerned. Scientists worry that if the issue of climate change is not quickly addressed, people may lose their homes.
Dinosaur brain tissue identified for first time
Scientists identify the first known example of fossilised brain tissue from a dinosaur, and say it resembles the brains of modern-day crocodiles and birds.
Cancer 'smoke alarm' could aid early diagnosis
Scientists in Britain hope a simple blood test could one day act as a 'smoke alarm' for early detection of cancer by spotting mutated blood cells that could indicate the disease at a very early stage.
