Prof. Mirosław Wielgoś, MD, Rector at the Medical University of Warsaw, talks about why women of all ages should undergo prenatal testing and where they can turn for help.
We talk about the importance of psychoeducation for heart patients with Anna Mierzyńska and Karolina Jurczak of the Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński Institute of Cardiology in Anin.
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a popular pigment known as titania white. However, it has many other properties that support various applications.
We talk to Dr. Maciej Jórdeczka from the PAS Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology in Poznań about archaeological surprises, Neolithic medicine and paying respect to our deceased.
We talk about technology, lexicography, and long-forgotten word senses in Polish with Prof. Włodzimierz Gruszczyński from the PAS Institute of the Polish Language, where work is underway on the Electronic Dictionary of the Polish Language of the 17th and 18th Centuries.
We have evidence of a meteorite impact near the village of Morasko in Poland around 5,500 years ago. What can it tell us about the past and the future?
Dr. Agata Karska of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń talks about the valuable time we get from ESO, visiting Chile without leaving home, and the opportunities for young scientists in Poland.
Knowledge of having a deadly disease usually causes severe psychological problems, depression, or even PTSD. Can this be avoided? Can one find something positive in a tragic situation?
When and where did life first appear on Earth? Humankind has been pondering this question for centuries. The discovery of ancient microalgae is providing a partial answer.
“Soon we will be able to fit the contents of the Encyclopedia Britannica on a head of a pin,” the famous physicist Richard Feynman argued back in the 1960s. Perhaps even he would be amazed at the possibilities now offered by carbon nanotubes, several hundred thousand times tinier than a pin. Their amazing properties have been exploited in an integrated circuit developed at the Karlsruhe Institut für Technologie.
Over half of all organisms living on Earth today are parasites, and there are hardly any species which are free from them. How can the “wild immunology” approach help us understand them better?
A need to control our environment is apparent from an early age. Where does it stem from?
What is patriotism as opposed to nationalism? And which of these is what sometimes surfaces in contemporary rock music?
Prof. Małgorzata Kossut of the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology talks about brain plasticity, the mechanisms of learning, and the mysteries of forgetfulness.
Polish Sign Language (PJM) is a natural communication system that has been evolving for two centuries. It is at the heart of the identity and culture of the Deaf community in Poland, but it is often marginalized and neglected. It first came under serious linguistic scrutiny not long ago, and more systematic research on it has been initiated in recent years by a team of researchers at the Section for Sign Linguistics at the University of Warsaw.
These days, a kind of information embargo is increasingly being applied, to ensure that only selected scientific information is accessible only to selected recipients at the right time.
Animals kept outside their natural environment often suffer from boredom. They don’t hunt or have a chance to conduct their mating rituals, and their natural tendency for physical activity is limited by space. These deficiencies affect their psychological well-being. But when it comes to dogs, we can help them by exploiting their excellent sense of smell.
To learn about fish of the Oligocene period, one must first travel to the Carpathian Mountains and slowly smash rocks.
Once a ban on speaking in foreign languages in public is introduced, one’s head can cease to be a fighting tool, and will be used solely in accordance with its original purpose.
