Researchers Advocate For More Scientific Research On Consciousness
2014-07-11 03:46:20

By Hilary Hurd Anyaso, Northwestern University Why does a relentless stream of subjective experiences normally fill your mind? Maybe that's just one of those mysteries that will always elude us.

IOS Press Monitoring formation of amylin plaques using 2-D IR spectroscopy, scientists have observed the creation of temporary intermediate structures, which may explain why proteins aggregate into toxic plaques Amyloid diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, type 2 diabetes, cataracts, and the spongiform encephalopathies, all share the common trait that proteins aggregate into long fibers which then form plaques. Yet in vitro studies have found that neither the amylin monomer...

Data In The Cloud Secured With 'Melbourne Shuffle'
2014-07-11 03:20:30

Brown University To keep data safe in the cloud, a group of computer scientists suggests doing the Melbourne Shuffle. That may sound like a dance move, but it's also a computer algorithm developed by researchers at Brown University. The computing version of the Melbourne Shuffle aims to hide patterns that may emerge as users access data on cloud servers. Patterns of access could provide important information about a dataset — information that users don't necessarily want others to...
