A mobile application will compare archaeological materials through their chemical composition
A mobile application will compare archaeological materials through their chemical composition
A study led by María Luisa Cervera, Full Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Valencia (UV), concludes that smartphones are a potential tool for comparing archaeological samples. The work has been developed through the ArchaeChemis Research Unit of the institution, in which Gianni Gallello, a researcher from the Department of Prehistory, Archaeology and Ancient History, collaborates, and for the first time the smartphone is considered as a key tool to study vestiges from the past.

The first image of the black hole in our galaxy is revealed
The first image of the black hole in our galaxy is revealed
An international astronomy team, where researcher staff from the Universitat de València also participate, revealed the first image of the super massive black hole located at the centre of the Milky Way. This result presents substantial evidence that the objet is, indeed, a black hole. It also provides valuable hints about how these black holes work, which are believed to be found in the centre of most galaxies.

Children with history of maltreatment could undergo an early maturation of the immune system
The acute psychosocial stress states stimulate the secretion of an antibody type protein which is decisive in the first immune defence against infection, but only after puberty. However, children with a history of maltreatment present a similar response to that of adolescents, which suggests there is an early maturation of the immune system in these cases.

Measures to redress massive human rights violations
A study by the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) analyses and contextualizes the concept of "transitional justice" in the jurisprudence of the Inter-American Human Rights System. All States have the obligation to guarantee human rights. To do this, they must have different mechanisms which allow them to carry out efficient investigations to find those responsible for massive human rights violations, conduct a fair trial with the corresponding guarantees and condemn criminal acts.

New psychological therapy to be efficient in women with fibromyalgia and symptoms of depression
New psychological therapy to be efficient in women with fibromyalgia and symptoms of depression
Fibromyalgia is a rheumatological disease of unknown origin, which features a chronic pain, and it usually goes together with depression symptoms. It mainly affects women and does not have a cure, although several treatments can alleviate the symptoms. Cognitive-behavioural psychological therapty is one of the tools that have proved efficient when treating this pathology.

A method to optimise the operation of solar thermal power plants has been patented
Researchers from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) have patented a method which makes it possible to reduce energy losses in solar thermal power plants. Solar thermal energy relies on harnessing solar radiation to produce heat. As with most methods of obtaining electricity, this heat is used to heat a high-pressure fluid, which drives a turbine connected to a generator.

Researchers design nanochips that penetrate inside cells as mechanical drugs
A research team put devices of 50 nanometre-thick —one thousandth of a hair's part— inside living cells in order to find their division process and alter it, and even destroy cells. The new study, which sheds light on the exploration pathways in the field of nanomedicine, includes the participation of the researchers Lluïsa Pérez-Garcia and Ezhil Amirthalingam, from the Faculty of Pharmacy and Food Sciences and the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology of the University of Barcelona ( IN2UB ).

New mechanism to transfer chirality between molecules in the nanoscale field
New mechanism to transfer chirality between molecules in the nanoscale field
If we compare the right to the left hand, we can see these are specular images —that is, like symmetrical shapes reflected in a mirror— and they cannot superimpose on each other. This property is chirality, a feature of the matter that plays with the symmetry of biological structures at different scales, from the DNA molecule to the tissues of the heart muscle.
