Taking a pill to treat depression is widely believed to work by reversing a chemical imbalance. ... Magazines, newspapers, patients' organisations and internet sites have all publicised the idea that conditions like depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder can be treated by drugs that help to rectify an underlying brain problem. People with schizophrenia and other conditions are frequently told that they need to take...

Solar thermal energy has the potential to supply a significant fraction of the world’s energy needs if we learn to harness it effectively and to store its energy for use when we have times of high demand. An Australian company has been working on a technology that may be able to do just that. Solar Fusion Power has designed a complete system which can absorb the sunlight during the day and produce continuous, cost competitive, electricity...

While it's one of the most important and abundant chemical compounds on Earth, water is still a puzzle to scientists. Much research has been done to uncover the structure of water beyond the H2O scale, which is thought to be responsible for many of water’s unique properties. However, the nature of this structure, governed by hydrogen bonds, is currently unknown.
