Testing the role of radicals in sleep deprivation`s antidepressant effect.

Recent research on sleep deprivation(SD) has demonstrated in the mouse large free radical increases after two days SD, selectively in the small intestine (and large).1. This timescale closely parallels that of the quick, hard to sustain, human... continue reading

Manual therapy's marginal utility

Manual therapy's treatment techniques integrated a multitude of physical therapy modalities to address functional issues. In clinical settings, the majority of the treatment duration is a set time or with the ending time based on the experiences... continue reading

The Cocktail Therapy of using nanobots and mitochondrial transplantation along stem cells for salvaging dying organs of end stage failure

The concept is to combine all the 3 modalities of treatment which is basically injecting programmed medical nano-robots also known as nanite which is very tiny in size with dimensions in nanometers as it could perform a variety of functions,... continue reading

Database management for risk reduction and efficient governance

Database management solution using coupons. We want to collect data by distributing coupons about various offers, links to webinars, access to digital and print textbooks, other stationery goods, discounts to health clubs and gym, baked food items... continue reading

Democratizing experimental benchmarking of materials discovery campaigns through a low-cost, self-driving optics demo

Self-driving labs are the future; however, the capital and expertise required can be daunting. We introduce the idea of a constrained, high-dimensional, multi-objective optimization task for less than $100, a square foot of desk space, and an hour... continue reading

Heavy metal concentrations in tree rings to prove prolonged existence and hypothesized health impacts - CKDu

Tree rings that occurred due to seasonality or drought are used to estimate the age of tropical and temperate trees [1]. The heavy metal concentrations in tree rings are used to study the accumulation history by means of tree age [2]. CKDu or... continue reading

PyTag: An extensible computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software (CAQDAS)

There have been a few open-source projects that are aimed at qualitative data analysis (e.g. Taguette).

But, I haven't seen one with especially the extensibility concept in mind. It would be very nice if there

Average difference entropy

Calculating Shannon entropy on octet streams can be confusing, especially with those who lack a background in mathematics. It's also not necessary in many cases. A more intuitive calculation, which is also easier to implement, involves calculating... continue reading

Temporally-displaced heat pump systems.

Conventional heat pumps use mechanical work to exchange heat, against a temperature gradient, between two reservoirs that are spatially displaced; ie heat is removed at one location and discharged at another. An alternative approach which has not... continue reading
