Tiny X-ray beam reveals hidden photographs from the 19th century

Science
June 22 (UPI) -- Scientists have successfully recovered images from some of the earliest daguerreotypes, the silver plates used for one of the earliest forms of photography. To the naked eye, the portraits of a man and woman are unrecognizable. The daguerreotypes, taken as early as 1850, are too degraded by tarnish and wear. But researchers used rapid-scanning micro-X-ray fluorescence to see past the deterioration and recover the early images. "It's somewhat haunting because they are anonymous and yet it is striking at the same time," Madalena Kozachuk, a PhD student in the chemistry department at the University of Western Ontario, said in a news release. The images were analyzed at the National Gallery of Canada's photography research unit, where the daguerreotypes are stored. "The imag...

Changes to tiny blood vessels may help diagnose traumatic brain injuries

Health
April 30 (UPI) -- By finding changes to tiny blood vessels in the brains of people with traumatic injuries, researchers believe medical personnel could be able to make more precise diagnosis and treatment decisions.Researchers found that changes in the blood vessels may be linked to a range of cognitive symptoms after a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. The research, which was led by the University of Pennsylvania, was presented Friday at the American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting and has not yet been published."The relationship between microvascular and structural injury in chronic TBI has been recognized for years, but underappreciated," Dr. Ramon Diaz-Arrastia, director of the Traumatic Brain Injury Clinical Research Center at the Perelman School of Medicine at Pennsylvania, said in...

Tiny invertebrates ride high winds across the desert, study shows

Science
March 13 (UPI) -- New research shows waterborne microinvertebrates can be dispersed across large deserts by high winds.Because these organisms form the base of food chains among arid habitats, the impact of climate change on their dispersal patterns could influence delicate ecosystems."These novel findings might have large implications for freshwater systems," Elizabeth J. Walsh, an ecologist at the University of Texas at El Paso, said in a news release.During a previous study of the Chihuahuan Desert in Mexico and West Texas, Walsh and her colleagues were surprised to find colonies of related microinvertebrates linking water basins separated by several hundred miles. Their discovery inspired them to find out how the tiny organisms disperse across such large regions."If they weren't being ...
