Imagine if video games were a key to improving learning. Yale psychiatry professor Bruce Wexler believes they are. A study found that a video game-based learning regimen improved the test performance of 583 schoolchildren compared to both those without the
Nanoparticles offer an alternative treatment for administering drugs to cancer patients with ovarian and uterine carcinomas. Yale researchers have demonstrated the efficacy of drug delivery via a bioadhesive class of these nanoparticles.
The CEID was bustling with activity this summer, as teams of engineering students developed innovative devices to combat real-world problems. One such invention was Acantha, a one-handed catheter delivery system developed by Yale engineering students Brandon Hudik and Andres Ornelas Vargas. This duo is continuing their work beyond their eight-week fellowship at the CEID and plan to scale up the development of their product.
Quantum technologies could unlock entirely new ways to view the world — but only if scientists can create stable methods of manipulating qubits. Researchers from the Yale Quantum Institute have integrated classical and quantum technologies to create scalable quantum information chips, heralding a paradigm shift for the field.
We enjoy seeing robots in many places, from film to the classroom, but you likely would rather not see a robot at your place of employment, working in your stead. With rising concern that robots may come to replace human workers, it is time to address this problem from all angles.
Batteries are found in everything from cell phones to cars, quietly powering our everyday existence. With rising pressures to find more renewable sources of energy, batteries hold immense potential to do even more — for example, to store the excess
A new model that predicts the properties of nanocellulose composites could lead to improved nanotechnology for all.
“When is a strawberry dead?” This quirky question is one of many that have sparked debates on BBC Radio 4’s science-meets-entertainment podcast, “The Infinite Monkey Cage.” It is indicative of the show’s character — nonsensical musings intertwined with a surprising
Scientists learn lessons from nature’s greenery, modeling the next generation of solar technology on plant cells.
A study led by André Taylor, associate professor of chemical and environmental engineering at Yale, presents a new method of creating transparent lithium-ion batteries. The development brings science closer than ever before to the realization of invisible electronics.
