Facial expressions don't tell the whole story of emotion
Posted on Sunday February 16, 2020

Facial expressions might not be reliable indicators of emotion, research indicates. In fact, it might be more accurate to say we should never trust a person's face, new research suggests.

Computer-generated genomes
Posted on Saturday February 15, 2020

Chemists have described how computational algorithms paired with chemical DNA synthesis enable digital manufacturing of biological systems up to the size of entire microbial genomes. They have made insights related to the design, building and testing of a computer-generated bacterial genome and can discuss how algorithms simplify the synthesis of genomes to advance understanding of living systems.

New technologies, strategies expanding search for extraterrestrial life
Posted on Saturday February 15, 2020

New technologies that enable new strategies are revitalizing the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), by not only augmenting the traditional search for intelligently-generated radio signals but also allowing searches for other signs of life and technological activity.

Molecule offers hope for halting Parkinson's
Posted on Friday February 14, 2020

A promising molecule has offered hope for a new treatment that could stop or slow Parkinson's, something no treatment can currently do.

To help wildlife move, researchers map both natural and legal boundaries
Posted on Friday February 14, 2020

Researchers have developed a way to find the path of least resistance in creating wildlife corridors by mapping not only habitat but also the types of legal authority governing the landscape. They demonstrate this by mapping the streams in an entire county in northeastern Washington that stretches from the Rocky Mountain foothills to the Cascades.

Major study shows climate change can cause abrupt impacts on dryland ecosystems
Posted on Friday February 14, 2020

A study finds for the first time that as levels of aridity increase due to climate change, abrupt changes are experienced on dryland ecosystems.

Rare bats in decline
Posted on Friday February 14, 2020

A study led by Susan Tsang, a former Fulbright Research Fellow from The City College of New York, reveals dwindling populations and widespread hunting throughout Indonesia and the Philippines of the world's largest bats, known as flying foxes.

Researchers were not right about left brains
Posted on Friday February 14, 2020

The left and right side of the brain are involved in different tasks. This functional lateralization and associated brain asymmetry are well documented in humans. Scientists now challenge the long-held notion that the human pattern of brain asymmetry is unique. They found the same asymmetry pattern in chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans. However, humans were the most variable in this pattern. This suggests that lateralized, uniquely human cognitive abilities evolved by adapting a presumably ancestral asymmetry pattern.

Low-cost 'smart' diaper can notify caregiver when it's wet
Posted on Friday February 14, 2020

Researchers have developed a ''smart'' diaper embedded with a moisture sensor that can alert a caregiver when a diaper is wet. When the sensor detects dampness in the diaper, it sends a signal to a nearby receiver, which in turn can send a notification to a smartphone or computer.

Device mimics brain cells used for human vision
Posted on Friday February 14, 2020

In a study featured as the cover article appearing today in the journal Science Advances, a UCF research team showed that by combining two promising nanomaterials into a new superstructure, they could create a nanoscale device that mimics the neural pathways of brain cells used for human vision.
