Our research shows that when walking, the smart glasses reduce the ability to perform both walking and reading texts, and this can also have an impact on the safety of the users," said Dr. Tal Krasovsky from the University of Haifa,
Individual neurons could recognize, for example, when we are about to touch our tongue to our palate to say the letter D * This will enable the development of prostheses for those suffering from speech problems
The human attention system can be dynamic, efficiently jumping between stimuli and taking in a lot of information, so it is not static as is commonly thought.
Researchers examined DNA samples of 1,200 deaf Israeli-Jews, in order to understand the damage caused to the structure of the proteins in the hearing system
On the way in which vocal expressions can convey emotional information, especially in powerful experiences, and on the importance of the visual context
On the spectrum of disorders caused by a defect in one gene
A story about a protein that doesn't feel electric voltage
An international research group led by scientists from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev discovered among a species of crabs a mechanism that produces a unique eye shine that reflects light in a color adapted to the color of the water in their natural environment and thus enables camouflage
As part of the study, the Ashona researchers were able to identify proteins whose role is essential for the development and activity of the tissue affected by the disease, to precisely locate their location in genomic regions outside the genes and to identify the relationship between the changes in these regions and
For the first time in the world of science, a robot was able to "smell" using a biological sensor
The institute's scientists created a simulation of the activity of nerve cells in the retina based on the eye movements of subjects while trying to identify a whole based on its parts. Identifying the whole or not identifying it was characterized by distinct patterns of activity
A. Questioner: Why does it hurt us to hear a scratch on a board?
The ability to survive without food is one of the great achievements of our biology - but how does it work?
Researchers found for the first time that bats navigate during the day using a combination of excellent vision and locating the echoes in their environment
A powerful combination of engineering, artificial intelligence and brain research may lead to a new era in medicine
The experiment tested the changes that occur in the ability to see during space flight. The researchers are Dr. Eran Shanker, Prof. Uri Polat and Prof. Yossi Mendel.
Dana asks: Why does tickling make us laugh and why can't we tickle ourselves? Evolution gives an answer to this question as well
A research group from the field of life sciences and computer science challenged goldfish to navigate in a terrestrial environment. The results change everything we thought about fish
Not only do each of us yawn at least 5 times a day, but almost every vertebrate: mammal, bird and even reptile yawns sometimes. It is likely that a behavior that is zealously guarded throughout the animal world will have a role
A new development will make it possible to reveal "liars" by movements of the facial muscles
With the help of an innovative development by university researchers, doctors will for the first time be able to measure the size of the pupil and its reaction to light even when the eyes are closed: "The development will enable early detection of abnormal parameters and will contribute to saving lives
The researchers: "The phenomenon is not unique to humans. In many species of mammals and birds, the females prefer warm places, while the males prefer a cooler temperature." The researchers suggest that this is an inherent difference between the temperature sensing systems
David Julius and Erdem Patapotian (born in Beirut, Lebanon) discovered the receptors TRPV1, TRPM8 made it possible to understand how heat, cold and mechanical force can initiate nerve impulses that allow us to sense and adapt to the world around us
A study by researchers from the Hebrew University and the German University of Würzburg, led by Prof. Yoni Pertsov and Uriah Lanker-Dine, found that the human ability to process large parts of the field of vision optimizes the search operation he performs. as a result
