[Avalanche Research] Cracking the code underlying snowslides


Dangerous snow avalanches require failure of a weak layer buried beneath an overlying cohesive slab of snow. Although this process is mostly understood for some avalanche scenarios, – [Read More]

[Political Science] Scientific curiosity versus polarization


Knowledge does not always change biases, and people tend to absorb information that fits their prejudices. However, rather than studying scientific knowledge, Kahan et al.[Read More]

[Cell Biology] Dissecting the effects of APOE


Three APOE alleles are expressed in humans: APOE4 allele is the single most important genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease, APOE3 is neutral, and APOE2[Read More]

[Neurodevelopment] Vocalizations channeled by developmental affordances


Like humans, marmoset monkey infants vocalize differently from adults. Maturation of vocalizations depends on parental feedback, as well as development of the vocal apparatus and cognitive – [Read More]

[Optoelectronics] Electrical detection of diamond defects


Diamonds have many different kinds of defects, each type imbuing the crystal with a distinctive color. The quantum properties of the nitrogen vacancy defect are being intensely studied – [Read More]

[Neuroscience] Strengthening the remaining synapses


Working memory depends in part on the proper activation of neural circuits in a brain area called the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). In primates, DLPFC performance during working – [Read More]

[Hydrogels] A less structured way to better hydrogels


Hydrogels are composed of cross-linked polymers that are highly swollen with water. They are typically soft, squishy, and elastic, but they are not known for their strength or toughness. – [Read More]
