Under Development Spyware Project Plunders Private Conversations in Android

TEHRAN (Press Shia) - An online open project was discovered under development that is able to rifle through private conversation apps such as WhatsApp. The malware, originally discovered by ESET researcher Lukas Stefanko, is not only able to compromise WhatsApp messages but also contains a variety of standard surveillance features.An investigation into the new spyware conducted by G DATA...

Rare Alzheimer’s Disease Patients May Delay Cognitive Decline with Exercise

Rare Alzheimer’s Disease Patients May Delay Cognitive Decline with Exercise

TEHRAN (Press Shia) - Engaging in at least 2.5 hours of physical activity per week may have beneficial effects on markers of Alzheimer's disease brain changes and may delay cognitive decline in people who carry a genetic mutation that causes Alzheimer's disease. According to the authors, these results support the benefit of physical activity on cognition and dementia progression, even in...

Scientists Develop New Technologies to Interact with Bees (+Video)

TEHRAN (Press Shia) - Researchers in Graz, Austria build advanced beehives with complex bio-inspired algorithms to study the reaction of the bees and help to protect bee colonies against heavy environmental pressures. Can bees learn how to communicate with robots? Can robots learn how to interact with bees? Believe it or not, it's by answering these questions that European scientists think...

AI Learns to Associate Images with Spoken Words Like Babies

AI Learns to Associate Images with Spoken Words Like Babies

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) - Researchers at MIT have developed a software with the same ability as babies that matches images to sounds in order to learn to recognize objects in the world. Babies learn words by matching images to sounds. A mother says "dog" and points to a dog. She says "tree" and points to a tree. After repeating this process thousands of times, babies learn...

Insight into Autism, Brain Disorders Provided by Protein ‘Trafficker’

Insight into Autism, Brain Disorders Provided by Protein ‘Trafficker’

TEHRAN (Press Shia) - A protein that lingers too long on the neuron membrane may compromise the connections, or synapses, between cells that may propose a mechanism by which ASTN2 defects lead to neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism and intellectual disabilities. In the brain, as in business, connections are everything. To maintain cellular associates, the outer surface of a neuron, its...

Human Skeletal Stem Cells Identified

Human Skeletal Stem Cells Identified

TEHRAN (Press Shia) - Human skeletal stem cells that become bone, cartilage, or stroma cells have been isolated from fetal and adult bones. This is the first time that skeletal stem cells, which had been observed in rodent models, have been identified in humans. The researchers were also able to derive the skeletal stem cells from human induced pluripotent stem cells, opening up new therapeutic...

Gaia Satellite Detects a Shake in Milky Way

TEHRAN (Press Shia) – A team led by researchers from the Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University of Barcelona (ICCUB, UB-IEEC) and the University of Groningen has found, through the analysis of Gaia data, substructures in the Milky Way that were previously unknown. The findings, which appeared when combining positions and speed of 6 million stars from the galactic disk, have been...

Bees Help Researchers Confirm Theory about Maintaining Protective Clumps under Tough Conditions (+Video)

TEHRAN (Press Shia) - Researchers discovered the means by which honeybees keep their temporary clumps intact during adverse weather conditions, confirming their theory about bees’ behavior under stressful conditions. In their paper published in the journal Nature Physics, the group of researchers at Harvard University describes their study of honeybee behavior in their lab and what...
