DARPA’s New Brain Device Increases Learning Speed by 40{05dcf356446b978828058459b63259cbd949ba30b3ab1afc5082accfc0e62d11}

An international team of scientists has created a non-invasive device that stimulates the brain to improve cognitive function. In tests on macaques, it reportedly increased the monkeys” learning speed by 40 percent. New research funded by the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) has successfully demonstrated how a non-invasive method of

A More Sustainable Way to Refine Metals

A team of chemists in Canada has developed a way to process metals without using toxic solvents and reagents. The system, which also consumes far less energy than conventional techniques, could greatly shrink the environmental impact of producing metals from raw materials or from post-consumer electronics. “At a time when natural deposits of metals are
