Distinct molecular mechanisms can generate the same features in different neurons, a team of scientists has discovered. Its findings enhance our understanding of brain cell development.
Early Detection Using Real-Time Symptom Reports May Help with Timely Treatment
Top findings from the past month.
Myriam Sbeiti graduated at the top of her class from NYU Tandon (2018) with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering.
Top findings from the past month.
A team of biologists has determined how transcription factors, which guide gene regulation, function differently in embryonic development. The results help illuminate how cells acquire distinct functions as the embryo matures.
A team of biologists and computer scientists has adopted a time-based machine-learning approach to deduce the temporal logic of nitrogen signaling in plants from genome-wide expression data.
Neuroscientists have found new evidence on how distinct memories of similar events are represented in the brain.
A team of chemists has developed an MRI-based technique that can quickly diagnose what ails certain types of batteries—from determining how much charge remains to detecting internal defects—without opening them up.
Claude Desplan, a professor in NYU’s Department of Biology, and Paula England, a professor in NYU’s Department of Sociology, have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences.
