Robot-Driven Device Improves Crouch Gait in Children with Cerebral Palsy

3.6 out of 1000 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Their symptoms can include abnormal gait patterns such as crouch gait, characterized by excessive flexion of the hips, knees, or ankles. A pilot study led by Columbia Engineering’s Sunil Agrawal was published today in Science Robotics that demonstrates a robotic training method that improves posture and walking in children with crouch gait by enhancing their muscle strength and coordination.

Brain Cells Found to Control Aging

Scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine have found that stem cells in the brain’s hypothalamus govern how fast aging occurs in the body. The finding, made in mice, could lead to new strategies for warding off age-related diseases and extending lifespan. The paper was published online today in Nature.

Strange Electrons Break the Crystal Symmetry of High-Temperature Superconductors

Scientists have found surprising electron behavior that may help unravel the ever-elusive mechanism behind high-temperature superconductivity—a phenomenon in which electrical current flows freely without resistance through a material at unusually high temperatures relative to those of conventional superconductors.

‘Root Map’ Transcends Mohawk, US, Canada Borders to Connect Cultures

A new play about borders has found an unusual way to transcend them: by integrating local experiences in each new place it is performed. When it travels Aug. 26 to Akwesasne, the Mohawk Nation territory divided by the U.S. – Canada border, the script will incorporate stories of local Mohawk people, some of whom will join the cast

Clothbound Cheddar Conceived at Cornell, Finished in NYC Caves

In 2014, Murray’s Cheese in New York City had an idea for a clothbound cheddar modeled on classic British versions. And this year, after two years of development, the company has launched Murray’s Cavemaster Reserve Ezra – a bright, lemony flavored cheddar named with a nod to Cornell University’s founder.

Long Baseline Neutrino Facility Breaks Ground

On July 21, one mile beneath Lead, South Dakota, construction began on the first international mega-science experiment ever hosted on U.S. soil. Excavation crews will be digging out four massive caverns as part of the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF), which will house the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). This international initiative, with over 1,000 collaborators from 30 different nations, will attempt to solve outstanding mysteries of our universe—like why matter even exists—by studying elusive particles called neutrinos.
