Impaired information processing may prevent cells from perceiving their environment correctly; they then start acting in an uncontrolled way and this can lead to the development of cancer. To better understand how impaired information transmission influences the activity of diseased cells, researchers are going beyond the field of biology.

The model uses another classical concept, that of time-of-flight.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/0n7tQJFfLBc" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Wed, 07 Aug 2019 10:54:11 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/08/190807105411.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/08/190807105411.htmNovel school improvement program can raise teaching quality while reducing inequality

Hybrid unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, are drones that combine the advantages of multi-copters and fixed-wing planes. These drones are equipped to vertically take off and land like multi-copters, yet also have the strong aerodynamic performance and energy-saving capabilities of traditional planes.

Mathematics is seen as the pinnacle of abstract thinking. But are we capable of filtering out our knowledge about the world to prevent it from interfering with our calculations? Researchers have demonstrated that our ability to solve mathematical problems is influenced by non-mathematical knowledge, which results in mistakes. The findings indicate that high-level mathematicians can be duped by some aspects of their knowledge about the world and fail to solve primary school-level subtraction problems.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/computers_math/mathematics/~4/8VcwxCZyFbs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Wed, 10 Jul 2019 10:32:31 EDThttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/07/190710103231.htmhttps://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/07/190710103231.htmMathematical modeling for translational research of new CRSD medication
