Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Playing classical music to crocodiles in a MRI scanner produces patterns similar to those identified in mammals and birds, indicating that fundamental neuronal processing mechanisms of sensory stimuli formed early in evolution.
A new study using magnetic resonance spectroscopy provides insights into the biochemical mechanisms by which Tai Chi may provide both physical and psychological benefits.
Fine sediments, often due to run-off from the land, can clog the surface and sub-surface spaces in gravel beds used by spawning fish to lay their eggs and by aquatic insects. Without an adequate flow of oxygenated water, the eggs and insects die. Heather Haynes, Susithra Lakshmanan, Anne-Marie Ockelford, Elisa Vignaga and William Holmes tells us about this in “The emerging use of magnetic...

In 1946, two scientists in the United States, independently of each other, described a physicochemical phenomenon that was based upon the magnetic properties of certain nuclei in the periodic system. This was “nuclear magnetic resonance”, for short...
