Scientists have developed a ground-breaking method for testing the quality of a sperm before it is used in IVF and increase the chances of conception. Researchers at the University of Edinburgh, funded by the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council), have created a way of chemically "Ëœfingerprinting' individual sperm to give an indication of quality. Scientists can then consider whether the sperm is healthy enough to be used to fertilize an egg as part of an IVF...

New research from the UK suggests that men of higher intelligence tend to produce better quality sperm.The Institute of Psychiatry headed up a study where they analyzed data from former US soldiers who served during the Vietnam war era and found that those who performed better on intelligence tests tended to have more - and more mobile - sperm.The results appear to support the idea that genes underlying intelligence may have other biological effects too, suggesting that if tiny mutations...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
