Journal Highlight: The present and future use of functional near‐infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) for cognitive neuroscience

Date: Sep 3, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A comprehensive and state‐of‐the‐art review of fNIRS basics, technical developments, and applications is presented, discussing some of the open challenges and the potential for cognitive neuroscience research with a particular focus on neuroimaging in naturalistic environments and social cognitive neuroscience.

Journal Highlight: Chiral‐plasmon‐tuned potentials for atom trapping at the nanoscale

Date: Sep 3, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A novel chiral‐based tunable atom trapping system broadens the application of chiral metamaterials and has an important impact on all‐optical modulation, atomic on‐chip integration, manipulation of cold atoms, and quantum many‐body systems.

Journal Highlight: Important issues in plant tissues analyses by HR‐MAS NMR

Date: Sep 3, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A study of the method variables in the HR‐MAS NMR analysis of plant tissues has highlighted the need for standardised sample preparation and instrumental setup protocols in order to achieve high reproducibility and reliable data.

Journal Highlight: Three‐dimensional Raman tomographic microspectroscopy: A novel imaging technique

Date: Sep 3, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Nondestructive 3D Raman tomographic imaging experiments have been conducted on terrestrial and extraterrestrial samples to provide spatial distributions of chemical constituents from the interior of the samples with high spatial and depth resolution.

Music therapy: Proteome implications

Date: Sep 1, 2018

Author: Steve Down

A proteomics study of the effects of musical stimulation on spatial learning and memory in rats has implicated a pair of proteins that could provide a basis for studying clinical applications of music therapy in humans.

Alternative cigarettes: Prison teabacco hybrids analysed

Date: Sep 1, 2018

Author: Steve Down

An analysis of teabacco, the substitute tobacco made from tea leaves and nicotine lozenges that is prepared and produced by prison inmates, has uncovered unhealthy levels of toxic metals in the smoke but fewer harmful organic compounds than from normal cigarettes.

Autophagy: NMR and MS reveal tumour regrowth mechanism

Date: Sep 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

The combined forces of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and mass spectrometry have been used in research that shows how cell metabolism affects the ability of cells to undergo a survival program called autophagy during cancer chemotherapy allowing a tumour to regrow.

Brains over brood: Fossil explained with X-ray tomography

Date: Sep 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

X-ray tomography has been used to study a newly described fossil of an extinct ancestor of modern mammals that was found with 38 fossilised offspring. The study provides new evidence that as the first mammals evolved they traded brood size for brain size.

Safe UV: Savages Staph on syringes

Date: Sep 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

 A narrow band of ultraviolet, considered safe for human skin has been shown to be very effective at killing drug-resistant pathogens. Delivered through fibre optics, this wavelength of UV could be useful in warding off infections caused by skin piercing and other medical devices.

No diplomatic immunity: Microwave illness

Date: Sep 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

A mysterious group of health problems to afflict North American diplomats in Cuba and China have a strong symptomatic match for the well-known effects of pulsed radiofrequency/microwave electromagnetic (RF/MW) radiation, according to research from Beatrice Golomb of the University of California San Diego School of Medicine.
