New solar panel makes hydrogen and electricity

Along with solar energy, hydrogen is seen by many – including many research scientists – as a fuel of the future: it can power vehicles and heat homes without creating noxious emissions.

Until now, the challenge has been to derive hydrogen in a cheap and easy way.

But scientists at KU Leuven, a Dutch research university, have joined solar power and hydrogen generation in a single solar panel that produces hydrogen as well as electricity.

Stick-on sensor strip watches vital signs

In tomorrow’s medical suite, you won’t be hooked up to cart-mounted machines to track your heart rate or wrap a cuff around your bicep to measure your blood pressure. Medics will just slap a sticker on your chest.

Researchers at the U.S. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory developed the “VitalTag” to quickly monitor a range of indicators in accident victims. The sticky strip adheres across the upper chest and has wireless sensors that can be clipped to an earlobe and slipped onto a finger like a ring.

Teens’ heavy drinking damages brain’s emotional controls

A study from the University of Chicago has found that people who drink alcohol heavily before age 21 can damage the workings of the amygdala, the portion of the brain that regulates emotions and decision-making.

The brain continues to develop into a person’s early 20s. Frequent heavy drinking before that process is finished can permanently hamper the amygdala’s ability to make and use a protein called brain-derived neurotrophic factor, or BDNF, which is crucial to the brain’s proper functioning.
