  • Many solve civil justice problems on their own, rarely involving attorneys, says study
    Many of life's problems are also civil legal problems, but people don't see them that way. As a result, they often deal with them on their own, and rarely involve lawyers or courts, or even other third parties – and it's rarely because of cost. Those were among the findings in a recent report based on an extensive survey in a Midwestern American city.

  • Maturing brain flips function of amygdala in regulating stress hormones
    In contrast to evidence that the amygdala stimulates stress responses in adults, researchers have found that the amygdala has an inhibitory effect on stress hormones during the early development of nonhuman primates. This finding adds to evidence for a developmental switch in amygdala function and connectivity.

  • Why NASA studies the ultraviolet sun
    You cannot look at the sun without special filters, and the naked eye cannot perceive certain wavelengths of sunlight. Solar physicists must consequently rely on spacecraft that can observe this invisible light before the atmosphere absorbs it.

  • Space station inspired robot to help heal sick children
    The same companies which developed the robotic arms that helped astronauts build the International Space Station have now created a new research platform. Called KidsArm, this robot allows surgeons to quickly navigate to surgical sites in the body. It has an advanced imaging and control system that makes it extremely precise, and it is designed to explore the potential for automating certain demanding tasks in minimally invasive pediatric surgery.

  • GPIM spacecraft to validate use of 'green' propellant
    Milestone progress is being made in readying NASA's Green Propellant Infusion Mission (GPIM) for launch in 2016, a smallsat designed to test the unique attributes of a high-performance, non-toxic, "green" fuel on orbit.
