Why do woodpeckers not get brain damage?  Research presents an exciting new hypothesis

Why do woodpeckers not get brain damage? Research presents an exciting new hypothesis

Forced to spend the days slamming their little skulls into the sides of trees in search of buried pieces, woodpeckers should have developed one or two tricks to avoid brain damage. Then you would think. A new study on woodpecker biomechanics has cast doubt on speculation that the little chisel head avoids turning its brain …

Green nano-formulation for anti-cancer and antibacterial functions

Doxorubicin (DOX) is a powerful anti-cancer drug, and efforts have been made to design nanostructures to deliver it to cancer cells. The nanostructures increase the cytotoxic effects of DOX on cancer cells, while reducing the negative effects on healthy cells. Study: Multifunctional Green Synthesized Cu-Al Layered Double Hydroxide (LDH) Nanoparticles: Anti-Cancer and Antibacterial Activities. Image …
