[ Watch the Video: What Mechanisms Are Behind Cuttlefish Camouflage? ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Capable of producing zebra-like camouflage or ‘hypnotic’ color oscillations, the skin of the cuttlefish has long fascinated scientists looking to unlock its secrets. Now, a new study from Harvard University has revealed a natural nanoscale photonic device that allows the so-called 'chameleon of the sea' to dynamically change its colors. "Nature solved the...

Findings offer new hope for treatment of TBI in veterans wounded by explosions Bioengineers at Harvard have identified, for the very first time, the mechanism for diffuse axonal injury and explained why cerebral vasospasm is more common in blast-induced brain injuries than in brain injuries typically suffered by civilians. The research addresses two major aspects of traumatic brain injury (TBI), with significant implications for the medical treatment of soldiers wounded by explosions. Two...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ New findings offer new hope for the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in veterans wounded by explosions. Researchers have identified for the first time, the mechanism for diffuse axonal injury and explained why cerebral vasospasm is more common in blast-induced brain injuries than in brain injuries typically suffered by civilians. "These results have been a long time coming. So many young men and women are returning from military service with brain...
