Type 1 Diabetes Ages Brain Faster, Slows Down Cognitive Functions: Study

Type 1 diabetes effect on brain results in aging faster than normal slowing down memory retention, recollection and and processing, said a study. Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh who studied the impact of type 1 diabetes on patients now suggest that doctors should go for frequent screening of the brain to test for cognitive functions, especially in the middle-aged ...

Antarctic ice sheet melting faster than ever, alarming: New study

Using GRACE or gravitational satellite data, researchers have found that the ice sheet covering Antarctica is melting faster than ever, especially in the past one decade. Antarctica’s massive ice sheet lost twice its mass in its western portion compared to what it accumulated in the east and the┬ásouthern continent’s ice cap is melting ever faster, said researchers. The researchers were ...

Logic, memory combined to build ‘high-rise’ chip, on anvil at stanford

For decades, the mantra of electronics has been smaller, faster, cheaper. Stanford University engineers, led by an Indian-origin scientist, have added a fourth word – taller. A team from the US-based university is set to reveal how to build “high-rise” chips that could increase manifold the performance of the single-storey logic and memory chips. Subhasish Mitra, professor of electrical engineering ...
