Scientists at the University of Alaska Fairbanks have found that wood frogs in subarctic interior Alaska survive cold during winter season by freezing themselves below minus 18 degrees Celsius for up to 218 days and then come back to life in the spring season.
Researchers from the Netherlands and Israel have described two new wearable devices that use changing patterns of scattered light to monitor biometrics: one tracks glucose concentration and dehydration levels, and the other monitors pulse.
How about checking glucose levels without drawing blood? In a ray of hope for diabetics the world over, researchers have developed a new biochip sensor that can selectively measure glucose concentrations in a complex fluid like saliva.
Researchers have suggested that a dose of `sugar gel`- which means rubbing sugar into the inside of the baby`s cheek in the form of gel-is a cheap and effective way to protect premature babies against brain damage.
