As We Get Parched, Cognition Can Sputter, Dehydration Study Says

Georgia Institute of Technology

Getting parched can fuzz attentiveness and make it harder to solve problems. Dehydration can easily put a dent in those and other cognitive functions, a new metadata analysis of multiple studies shows. Researchers at Georgia Tech are particularly interested in possible ramifications for people who toil in the heat around heavy equipment or military hardware.

Making the Oxygen We Breathe, a Photosynthesis Mechanism Exposed

Georgia Institute of Technology

Oxygen photosynthesis has to be the greatest giver of life on Earth, and researchers have cracked yet another part of its complex and efficient chemistry. The more we know about it, the better we may be able to tweak photosynthesis, if it comes under environmental duress. It's also a great teacher of how to harvest sheer unlimited energy from the sun.

Biomaterial Particles Educate Immune System to Accept Transplanted Islets

Georgia Institute of Technology

By instructing key immune system cells to accept transplanted insulin-producing islets, researchers have opened a potentially new pathway for treating type 1 diabetes. If the approach is ultimately successful in humans, it could allow type 1 diabetes to be treated without the long-term complications of immune system suppression.

Spooky Quantum Particle Pairs Fly Like Weird Curveballs

Georgia Institute of Technology

Those particles that can be in two places at the same time and are not just particles but also waves appear to move in even weirder ways than previously thought. Theoretical physicists at Georgia Tech applied extreme computing power for a week to predict the movements of fermions by including quantum optics, or light-like, ideas in their mathematical, theoretical modeling.
