Sheet Music May Be an Effective Guide For Understanding Human Brain Activity
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)

Sergio Pequito, an assistant professor of industrial and systems engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, is looking to transcribe the brain’s complex dynamics into new data models that can help researchers better understand how the brain and human cognition work. This is being supported by a new grant from the National Science Foundation.

Columbia Researchers Develop New Method to Isolate Atomic Sheets and Create New Materials
Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Columbia researchers have invented a new method—using ultraflat gold films—to disassemble vdW single crystals layer by layer into monolayers with near-unity yield and with dimensions limited only by bulk crystal sizes. The monolayers have the same high quality as those created by conventional “Scotch tape” exfoliation, but are roughly a million times larger. They can be assembled into macroscopic artificial structures, with properties not easily created in conventionally grown bulk crystals.

Slithering Snakes on a 2-D Plane
Johns Hopkins University

Snakes live in diverse environments ranging from unbearably hot deserts to lush tropical forests, where they slither up trees, rocks and shrubbery every day. By studying how these serpents move, Johns Hopkins engineers have created a snake robot that can nimbly and stably climb large steps.
