In January 2013, the Journal of Nanoparticle Research published the study
         "What's in a name? How we define nanotech shapes public reactions"
that examined the effects of different nanotechnology definitions on public opinion formation.

U.S. researchers found that showing individuals different contexts of nanotechnology led to differences in how strongly they supported this emerging area of science and in their motivation to learn more about it. Educational background did also influence the opinion formation process.
