Budding geologists learn about meteorites at the Anne Demarais Nature Center

Rocks really do fall from the sky. They are called meteorites. That’s what Callan and Garrett Holmes learned at the Anne Demarais Nature Center’s “Tuesday Family Fun Night” July 12. The nature center is at the end of Drexel Avenue in Lawrence. Thomas Duffy, a Princeton University geosciences professor, explained the origins of rocks from … Read more

Rensselaer researchers learn to control electron spin at room temperature to make devices more efficient and faster – BIOENGINEER.ORG

TROY, NY – As our devices become smaller, faster, more energy efficient, and capable of holding larger amounts of data, spintronics may continue that trajectory. Considering electronics is based on the flow of electrons, spintronics is based on the spin of electrons. TROY, NY – As our devices become smaller, faster, more energy efficient, and … Read more

Rats can learn to navigate by watching their friends, helping us learn more about our own ‘internal GPS’ – BIOENGINEER.ORG

Researchers are one step closer to understanding the ‘internal GPS’ of animals and humans, by investigating whether rats can learn spaces just by observation. In a new study published in Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience, the researchers show that rats do not need to physically explore an environment to learn about a specific location; simply observing … Read more

Variational autoencoders learn transferrable representations of metabolomics data

Datasets The TwinsUK registry is a population-based study of around 12,000 volunteer twins from all over the United Kingdom. The participants have been recruited since 1992 and are predominantly female, ranging in age from 18 to 103 years old25. For our study, we included data from 4644 twins (4256 females, 388 males), the subset of … Read more

Mount Sinai researchers learn that ALS may be linked to both the immune and central nervous systems – BIOENGINEER.ORG

The immune system may play a fundamental role along with the central nervous system in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as “Lou Gehrig’s disease,” Mount Sinai researchers report. Their study, published on June 22 in Naturecould have significant implications for diagnosing and treating the devastating neurodegenerative disease. The immune system may play a fundamental … Read more
