Swarming And Mating Of Ants

, : Swarming And Mating Of Ants. Science 77(2009): 627-627

In 1935, Erwin Schrödinger suggested his famous gedanken experiment of the cat that is simultaneously "dead" and "alive" inside its box until the box is opened. But as Tesche explains in her Perspective, such a macroscopic manifestation of quantum mechanics has remained elusive until recently. The experiments by van der Wal et al. are an important step toward demonstrating that quantum mechanics can describe macroscopic phenomena. The approach may be exploited in quantum computing and quantum cryptography.

The effect of ethosuximide, dipropylacetate and clonazepam on metrazole convulsions induced by a dose of 80 mg/kg was studied in 314 male albino rats aged from 5 days to adult. In a standard dose of 125 mg/kg, ethosuximide reliably protected only...

The effects of ionizing radiation (IR) on tumor angiogenesis still remain largely unknown. In this study, we found that IR (8 Gy) induces a high-frequency (80-90%) senescence-like phenotype in vascular endothelial cells (ECs) undergoing exponenti...
