PupilScreen aims to allow parents, coaches, medics to detect concussion, brain injuries with a smartphone

University of Washington researchers are developing a smartphone app that is capable of objectively detecting concussion and other traumatic brain injuries in the field, which could provide a new level of screening for athletes or accident victims.

Getting Hook Bending Off the Hook

The bending of a hook into wire to fish for the handle of a basket by the crow Betty 15 years ago stunned the scientific world. However, the finding was recently relegated as similar behavioural routines were discovered in the natural repertoire of the same species, suggesting the possibility that Betty’s tool manufacture was less intelligent than previously believed. Now cognitive biologists from the University of Vienna and the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna studied tool making in an Indonesian cockatoo. Other than the New Caledonian crows Goffin cockatoos are not using tools in the wild. To the researchers' surprise the birds manufactured hook tools out of straight wire (and in a second task unbent curved wire to make a straight tool) without ever having seen or used a hook tool before.

Nature Imagery Calms Prisoners

Sweeping shots of majestic landscapes. Glaciers, forests and waterfalls. Research published today shows that these images, shown to people deprived of access to nature, can reduce tension, help defuse anger and make some of the harshest environments, like a solitary confinement cellblock in a maximum-security prison, a little easier to bear.

Z-endoxifen Shows Promise as New Treatment for Common Breast Cancer Type

Z-endoxifen, a potent derivative of the drug tamoxifen, could itself be a new treatment for the most common form of breast cancer in women with metastatic disease. This finding was reported from a clinical trial conducted by researchers at Mayo Clinic and the National Cancer Institute, and published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

Columbia Engineers and Clinicians First to Build a Functional Vascularized Lung Scaffold

A Columbia Engineering team led by Professors Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic (Columbia Engineering) and N. Valerio Dorrello (Columbia University Medical Center) is the first to successfully bioengineer a functional lung with perfusable and healthy vasculature in an ex vivo rodent lung. Their new approach allows the removal of the pulmonary epithelium while maintaining the viability and function of the vascular network and the lung matrix (Science Advances).
