Researchers have developed a device that combines image-processing goggles and tiny silicon chips implanted in the retina to restore vision.
Stanford scientists have found a way to modify pairs of cancer-related genes in the lungs of mice and then precisely track individual cells of the resulting tumor – a combined technique that could dramatically speed up cancer research and drug development.
Stanford neurologists have been working for several years with a specialist in computer music to develop a "brain stethoscope" that translates the brain’s electrical activity into sounds.
A technique for growing sticky films of bacteria into elaborate microscopic images could reveal how potentially dangerous biofilms grow and transmit antibiotic resistance, and could lead to novel biomaterials or synthetic microbial communities, researchers say.
Researchers at Stanford University are imagining for a system that can produce images of objects hidden from view.
Countries that simply possess deadly, armed drones could change an adversary’s behavior without even striking them, according to a Stanford political scientist.
Researchers have completed the first-ever comprehensive map of how both humans and natural events influence overall coral reef health by studying Hawaii’s once-thriving coral reefs.
A new study finds that young children see words and faces differently from adults, a finding that could help in understanding how children learn to read.
Stanford researchers have developed 'artificial skin’ that can feel the touch of a ladybug and a manufacturing process to mass produce this stretchable circuitry.
Researchers have developed a wake-up receiver that turns on a small, electronic device in response to incoming ultrasonic signals – signals outside the range that humans can hear.
