Nobel Prize in Medicine results announced, two American scientists share the honor-8world

by admin

The results of the Nobel Prize in Medicine were announced, and two American scientists shared the honor to recognize their contributions to the discovery of temperature and tactile receptors.

The Nobel Prize Committee announced the winners in Stockholm last night. The two award-winning scientists are Julius and Pataptian.

Julius said: “We know very well about the senses such as sight and hearing. I think that among all the senses, touch and pain are still a bit mysterious.”

Julius, 66, used peppers to conduct research to find out the human nerve receptors that respond to heat.

Pataptian, 53, said that he knew he won the prize when he received a call from his 94-year-old father. His research has identified receptors on the skin that respond to stress.

“Your sense of touch must be subjected to physical stimuli, such as temperature and pressure, and transformed into chemical language that the body cells can understand.”

The findings of the two scientists will help the research of new painkillers. They will share a prize of 10 million Swedish kronor.
