Artery Research (http://www.arteryresearch.com), is the official journal of the Association for Research into Arterial Structure and Physiology (ARTERY) (http://www.artery.uk.net) and will be published quarterly from 2008. The journal focuses on research into the arterial structure and physiology. The official launch of the journal is scheduled to take place during the 17th European Meeting on Hypertension (http://www.aimgroup.it/2007/esh) being held in Milan (Italy) from 15-19 June 2007.
Artery Research features original articles on the advancement of knowledge and dissemination of information concerning the pathophysiology, epidemiology, detection, investigation and treatment of arterial structure and function. The journal will also include review articles, case studies, letters to the Editor and short communications. Authors are invited to submit their work to Artery Research through the online submission and review system - http://ees.elsevier.com/artres
The first issue will include a summary of the recent consensus statement on arterial stiffness from The European Network for Non Invasive Investigation of Large Arteries lead by Stephane Laurent. Research into arterial stiffness is moving rapidly and the editorial board welcome feedback for improving the journal and its content. The first issue is available for free at http://www.arteryresearch.com
The Editor-in-Chief, Professor John R. Cockcroft, explains why the new journal is being launched: “The past few years have seen much progress in terms of research into arterial structure and physiology. The number of publications in this field has risen steadily with novel and important results being reported in a variety of high impact factor journals spanning many different disciplines and epidemiology. Artery Research is the official journal of the Association for Research into Arterial Structure and Physiology (ARTERY) and as such I hope will be viewed as the natural home for publications of studies in this field”.
Graham Brumfield, Elsevier Publishing Editor for Cardiology journals adds: “We are pleased to launch this new journal in association with ARTERY. The amount of published research in this area of medicine has been increasing steadily over the past few years and we feel this is an ideal moment to launch a new journal on arterial structure and physiology”.

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.
Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...
Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
