Traditional religiosity and Kabbalistic ideas: Safed of the 16th century offers an alternative model of Jewish existence in the Land of Israel
Researchers have developed algorithms based on game theory, through which robotic systems such as drones or autonomous cars can make informed decisions and operate efficiently
A new book examines the views of the country's founding father
"This is the first measurement ever made of the free fall of antimatter (antihydrogen) atoms that directly shows that they really fall down," explained Prof. Eli Sharid from the Physics Department at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, the member of the ALPHA collaboration group
The cooperative economy tries to provide an answer to the loss of food
An examination of known growth laws that were discovered recently, led to the discovery of new growth laws
True, our health reporter is not a doctor, and the science reporter probably didn't study astrophysics at the Technion. Still, after years of coverage, they've learned something. What exactly?
Significant progress towards personalized medicine in the field of psychiatry, with the help of a helmet that induces electromagnetic stimulation of the brain.
What makes foraminifera species sensitive to heat?
The shrimp has a particularly bright white color on its back and limbs that are intended to attract fish, which it 'cleanses' of pests it feeds on. An in-depth examination of the white substance using special electron microscopes revealed that the substance consists of an incredibly thin layer of very dense nanospheres (spheres of very tiny diameter)
At the Biorobotics Laboratory of the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev under the direction of Dr. David Zaruk, they presented the AmphiSAW robot, which draws inspiration from the worlds of biology and nature and is friendly to fish and the environment. It works both in water and on land, is used to feed fish and monitor their condition, and assists in rescues in disaster areas and more
The research carried out at Ben Gurion University focused on the VDAC1 protein that controls mitochondrial activity and controls cell life and death
Climate change and its devastating impact are well known. However, in the last two years we are increasingly witnessing the threatening consequences of extreme climatic events, as was the case last summer in England when a temperature of 40 degrees was measured for the first time. The situation will only get worse and accelerate the extinction of many living creatures, says Prof. Uri Roll, one of the leaders of the research
This is according to a study by Tel Aviv University, Ben Gurion University and the Ministry of Health, which included 40,000 residents in the "Protection of Fathers and Mothers" program
AHDS patients are unable to walk or sit independently and do not even develop the ability to speak. So far, about 300 patients have been diagnosed in the world, however, due to being a rare syndrome that was recently identified, it can be estimated that the number of patients in the world is greater than this number.
A powerful combination of engineering, artificial intelligence and brain research may lead to a new era in medicine
Are events in the distant past, such as the extinction of the dinosaurs, about ten percent closer in time to us? And how does it relate to solar flares? This is according to ongoing research by a group headed by Prof. Yitzhak Orion from Ben Gurion University. In an interview with the Hidan site, Prof. Orion also explains the role of the neutrino particle in the phenomenon
Prof. Dan Blumberg, Ben-Gurion University's Vice President for Regional and Industrial Development: "Our ability to observe the Earth from space and quickly analyze complex damage is well used around the world and reduces the damage of disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, droughts and more"
Researchers from Ben-Gurion University have demonstrated for the first time, together with their colleagues from the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, how a 'wave of death' spreads between cells. The discoveries are a basis for understanding the processes of planned cell death and for developing new treatments for cancer
