Graphene for malaria prevention

Afraid of #mosquito bites and malaria? Your worries could end very soon. #Researchers from #Brown #University have come up with a #smart #fix. They conducted a series of #experiments to show that #skin covered with a layer of #graphene #oxide is less susceptible to nasty mosquito bites. Graphene oxide blocks the #signals that mosquitoes receive from #human skin. Mosquitoes are also unable to bite through this unique #material. This is indeed a smart and chemical-free way of preventing mosquito bites. So don’t feel surprised if you see graphene-lined #garments at your nearest shopping mall sometime soon.

Cilantro reduces seizures

#Cilantro has been traditionally used to reduce the occurrence of #epileptic and non-epileptic #seizures. However, the exact mechanism of action was not known so far. #Scientists have now #discovered that cilantro is a potent #potassium channel (KCNQ) activator. This study was published in the FASEB Journal (h-index: 257).

New Gym Cameras

#Researchers from #Carnegie #Mellon #University have designed new “GymCams” for the efficient detection of repetitions; motions that ordinary #gadgets such as #smartwatches cannot #track with sufficient accuracy. These #cameras work on the principle of pixel-based #motion #detection and they do not capture or even require #personal #data such as facial #photographs. Wearable #devices currently being used for this purpose do record repetitions, but they have their own limitations. For example, a wearable smartwatch tied to the wrist simply cannot detect leg presses.
