[Avalanche Research] Cracking the code underlying snowslides

2017-02-17

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

2017-02-17

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

2017-02-17

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

2017-02-17

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

2017-02-17

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

2017-02-17

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

2017-02-17

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]
