Innovation, from the EU a prize for technologies to support humanitarian aid. A budget of million euro, the largest ever, has been recently allocated to Italian basic research, with specific attention to young people aged less than 40 and to researchers working in the regions Psychology, children with dyslexia see in a special way. In some respects, the perception in children with dyslexia seems to be the opposite of that in children with typical development, according to a study carried out by researchers at University of Padova First meeting of Contamination Lab network.
Magnetism and black holes: Italian researchers in the journal Science. Black holes exert a very strong gravitational pull on everything around them, but they have a surprisingly weak magnetic field. This is demonstrated by an international study, published in the journal Neuroscience, neural mechanisms explained by cortical blindness. Despite being partially blind, some patients showed unconscious vision on the blind side of the visual field. This was established in the study Visually evoked responses from the blind field of hemianopic The game is serious when health is at stake.
The cure and prevention of diseases by means of serious game — that is, games having a useful purpose that are used for simulation and virtual reality for training healthcare professionals on specific Cancer research, an overview in an interactive e-book by IFOM. Insidious and multifaceted, cancer is among the most feared evils of our time. Its incidence is increasing: in Italy alone, about 1, people a day receive a diagnosis of infiltrating malignant cancer. An innovative approach to the fight against cancer, which opens new therapeutic perspectives in personalized medicine and which identifies the best strategies to block DNA repair in cancer cells.
A study conducted at the Department of Biological, Geological, and Environmental Sciences of the University of Bologna has studied human adaptation to hypobaric hypoxia through the genetic heritage of Ultrafast switches with surface plasmons. It seems that it is possible to make much faster switches than the ones currently in use by using new two-dimensional materials.
This is the result of a study carried out by researchers at the Institute It was discovered by researchers at the Neuroscience Division Neuroscience, researchers at University of Florence study lampreys. It is a niche sector but it attracts the interest of neuroscientists all over the world: it is the study of lampreys. Natural sciences, Marsican brown bear's surprising resistance to extinction. It has been demonstrated by a study carried out by a team of Italian researchers who have identified Naval and offshore sectors, the made in Friuli Venezia Giulia eco-sustainable door.
Developing a key technology for safety in the naval and offshore sectors: a door that ensures high efficiency and low environmental impact. The same greenhouse to raise fish and grow plants. Two research projects from the University of Milan are among the 33 Italian winners of the prestigious Consolidator Grants of the European Research Council-ERC, the funding scheme designed to support excellent Manipulation of gas: new frontiers for the future.
The manipulation of atoms and their interactions at very low temperatures is one of the areas of research of particular topical interest today. An international team of researchers has concluded a study The effects of an airport on Saint Helena island. The future of molecular computers at University of Cagliari.

Thanks to the work of a group of researchers at the University of Cagliari, it has been possible to develop the first example of a molecular logic gate able to exploit the interaction between molecules Making electronic circuits, like those contained in our computers and smartphones, by printing them on paper using the wonderful properties of graphene inks. With this idea Gianluca Fiori, Associate Professor Medicine: new studies on SMA, the muscular atrophy that affects children.
There is a link between protein synthesis and the mechanism by which spinal muscular atrophy SMA appears and progresses. This has been demonstrated for the first time by a study conducted by CNR - Institute New studies on the possibility of protecting the heart after surgery. Stress can cause genome changes. Towards the 9th Framework Programme, discussion at the national level begins.
Preparations have started for the transition from Horizon — the current European Research and Innovation Programme for the period — to the 9th Framework Programme-FP9. The cyclical nature of sound perception, with oscillations that reflect the rhythms of our attention, has been demonstrated by the study Auditory Sensitivity and Decision Criteria Oscillate at Different Medicine, UniVerona awarded for research on organ transplantation.
