Combining a new solution which turns tissue transparent with fluorescence microscopy, researchers obtain detail images of a mouse brain with unprecedented resolution.
Using a specially designed vibrotactile display mounted around the waste, researchers study how people use vibrotactile cues to navigate unfamiliar surroundings.
Researchers discover Pleurobranchaea californica, a predatory sea slug which normally isn’t a picky eater, has more cognitive abilities than previously believed; allowing them to lean the warning cues of dangerous pray and avoiding them in the future.
In one of the first successful attempts at genetically engineering mosquitoes, HHMI researchers have altered the way the insects respond to odors, including the smell of humans and the insect repellant DEET.
A robot developed by Cornell scientists has learned to foresee human actions in order to offer a helping hand; even open a beer.
Researchers have developed a device which records the brain activity of worms in order to test the effects of drugs.
Researchers have developed a fiber-optic, two-photon optogenetic simulator which can be used to stimulate a light sensitive protein introduced into neurons and living cells in the brain. The researchers suggest this technology would be a useful tool for the BRAIN mapping initiative.
Researchers discover individuals can successfully try to get happy with the aid of upbeat, cheery music.
A drug developed by scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, known as J147, reverses memory deficits and slows Alzheimer’s disease in aged mice following short-term treatment.
A new study points to a correlation between suicide rates and environmental pollution caused by emissions from coal-fired electricity plants in North Carolina.
