A Subway Map Of The Metabolism [Infographic]

Just take the Krebs Cycle train to the Carbon transfer!<p>We've seen metabolism maps before, but never one quite so simple to read as this one, designed by Richard Wheeler, an illustrator and Oxford postdoc who researches the cell biology of parasites.<p>Metabolism encompasses all the chemical reactions …

New blood test might predict sepsis deaths

Researchers looking for a test to predict whether someone has a potentially deadly condition called sepsis have made a surprise finding – they can predict who will die from it.<p>Their test accurately picked out who would develop severe sepsis and die, versus those who had fairly innocuous infections …

The Human Body: What It Is and How It Works, in Vibrant Vintage Illustrations circa 1959

Much of our inquiry into what makes us human focuses on understanding consciousness, yet we spend the whole of our lives in our physical bodies. As a lover of anatomical art and vintage science illustration, I was instantly enamored with <b>The Human Body: What It Is And How It Works</b> — a stunning …

Who’s afraid of the amygdala? Research blows away "fear center" myth

New revelations about your brain’s so-called “fear center” explain why it’s misleading to say “this part of the brain does x”. Maggie Koerth-Baker …

Build an atom, complete with protons, neutrons and all requisite orbitals and electron spins. A pretty little look at the idealized, not-to-scale world of the elements. Great for a chemistry or physics reference anyway. That’s helium, carbon, iron and livermorium for those of you keeping track at home. Interested in a diagram of an atom that’s more to scale? Get yourself an 11-mile wide computer monitor and head over to this site. EDIT: An earlier version of this post said hydrogen instead of helium, because I’m a dummy and I was in a hurry.

X doesn't mark the spot: real shape of chromosomes revealed

Time to revise the high school biology textbooks: contrary to their typical portrayal as being precisely X-shaped, chromosomes are in fact much more complex — and much messier looking. That's the finding of a new project that relied on DNA sequencing to produce accurate 3D images of chromosomes.<p>A …

See the very first images of a hydrogen bond

Chemists have long known what a hydrogen bond should look like, but until last week, most hadn't actually seen an image of one. Now, researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences have been able to visualize a hydrogen bond using atomic force microscopy, a technique that can deliver higher …

Early Visualizations Of Disease Are As Fascinating As They Are Disturbing

Chicken pox induced pustules, rotting bones, a bulging eye tumor. These are not the images one would typically describe as beautiful. And yet there is something oddly enchanting about the early visualizations of disease, drawn and published as far back as the 1500s.<p>The detailed depictions of …
