Magic Helps Unmask How the Brain Works

Scientists have used the “mirror box” illusion – an old magic trick – in a number of neuroscience studies. Researchers at the University of Delaware are using a new version of the illusion to study how the brain processes multiple sensory inputs to perceive our bodies and the world around us.

Endangered Bat Species Pollinates Agave Plants

A binational research group is collecting data on the migratory pattern of Mexican long-nosed bats. These bats pollinate the agave plant from which tequila is made. They migrate toward the corridor of agave and columnar cactus from Mexico to the Southwestern U.S. Researchers hope to save the species by understanding more about their migration.

Song of the Trees

In The Wind Garden, the trees, wind and light are the composers. The new sound installation was created by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams for the Stuart Collection, a public art collection on the University of California San Diego campus. The innovative soundscape is activated by the natural elements and inspires listeners to connect with their environment.

ALMA Confirms Complex Chemistry in Titan's Atmosphere

Saturn’s frigid moon Titan has a curious atmosphere. In addition to a hazy mixture of nitrogen and hydrocarbons, like methane and ethane, Titan’s atmosphere also contains an array of more complex organic molecules, including vinyl cyanide, which astronomers recently uncovered in archival ALMA data. Under the right conditions, like those found on the surface of Titan, vinyl cyanide may naturally coalesce into microscopic spheres resembling cell membranes.

Even Babies Can Tell Who's the Boss, UW Research Says

University of Washington researchers have found that the trait of social dominance, and the dynamics surrounding it, may be so naturally ingrained that toddlers as young as 17 months old not only can perceive who is dominant, but also anticipate that the dominant person will receive more rewards.

MKTP Surgery Has Long-Term Benefit for Restoring Skin Pigmentation in Vitiligo Patients

A Henry Ford Hospital study has shown that skin transplant surgery has long-term benefit for restoring skin pigmentation caused by the skin disease vitiligo. In a retrospective study, researchers found that a majority of areas of the skin treated with surgery still had “very good to excellent” color match pigmentation five years later.
