Optical magnetic field sensor can detect signals from the nervous system

Quantum physics: The human body is controlled by electrical impulses, including the brain, the heart and nervous system. These electrical signals create tiny magnetic fields, which doctors could use to diagnose various diseases of the brain or heart in young foetuses. Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have now succeeded in developing a method for

Mutation protects against heart disease

According to new international research, just less than 1% of the population is naturally protected against developing chronic coronary artery diseases. The New England Journal of Medicine, a renowned health journals, has just published the results of international genetic research collaborations. Researchers from Iceland’s deCode Genetics headed the project, which involved 292,000 participants of European origin, of
