Primitive ponds may have provided a suitable environment for brewing up Earth’s first life forms, more so than oceans, a new MIT study finds.
By exposing mice to a unique combination of light and sound, MIT neuroscientists have shown that they can improve cognitive and memory impairments similar to those seen in Alzheimer’s patients.
In an advance that could accelerate battery development and improve manufacturing, Stanford scientists have found how to accurately predict the useful lifespan of lithium-ion batteries, used in devices from mobile phones to electric cars.
MIT’s new mini cheetah robot is springy and light on its feet, with a range of motion that rivals a champion gymnast.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology President Rafael Reif wrote in the Financial Times to encourage the nation’s colleges and universities to prepare students for societal challenges posed by artificial intelligence.
A team of investigators has pioneered a new approach that brings closer to the clinic an oral formulation of insulin that can be swallowed rather than injected.
An MIT-led research team has developed a drug capsule that could be used to deliver oral doses of insulin, potentially replacing the injections that people with type 2 diabetes have to give themselves every day.
