    The use of sophisticated in-car technology to enforce urban speed limits and improve road safety is an idea whose time could well have come. To the great majority of motorists, speed bumps are, at best, a 'necessary evil'. However, if the results of recent trials in Sweden involving intelligent speed adaptation (ISA) technology are anything to go by then the days of this contentious feature of our...

    Feeling threatened by cyborgs? Don't believe the hype. Researchers at the University of Southern California have simply attached some electrodes to slices of dead rat brain and are wiring them up to an external chip to see what happens. The University of Southern California team hopes that its brain implant will eventually help patients brain-damaged from stroke, epilepsy or Alzheimer's disease. B... View full abstract»

    Analogue mobile phones have now been linked to brain cancer. The author looks at the current research on the phones in use. In the late 1970s a Californian research group found changes in calcium in chick brain cells exposed to analogue mobile signals but subsequent attempts to replicate the results have been inconsistent. Results from detailed work, coupled with large health studies like the EC-f... View full abstract»
