How Animals Use Their Tails to Swish and Swat Away Insects

Georgia Institute of Technology

A new study shows how animals use their tails to keep mosquitoes at bay by combining a swish that blows away most of the biting bugs and a swat that kills the ones that get through.

Eating with Your Eyes: Virtual Reality Can Alter Taste

Cornell University

Humans not only relish the sweet, savory and saltiness of foods, but they are influenced by the environment in which they eat. Cornell University food scientists used virtual reality to show how people’s perception of real food can be altered by their surroundings, according to research published in the Journal of Food Science.

Linguistic Red Flags From Facebook Posts Can Predict Future Depression Diagnoses

Stony Brook University

What if an algorithm could scan social media and point to linguistic red flags for depression before a formal medical diagnosis had been made? New research published to be published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows this is now more plausible than ever.

New Model Helps Define Optimal Temperature and Pressure to Forge Nanoscale Diamonds in an Explosion

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

To forge nanodiamonds, which have potential applications in medicine, optoelectronics and quantum computing, researchers expose organic explosive molecules to powerful detonations in a controlled environment. These explosive forces, however, make it difficult to study the nanodiamond formation process. To overcome this hurdle, researchers recently developed a procedure and a computer model that can simulate the highly variable conditions of explosions on phenomenally short time scales. They report their work in The Journal of Chemical Physics.
