A team of NYU researchers has solved a longstanding puzzle of how to build ultra-sensitive, ultra-small electrochemical sensors with homogenous and predictable properties by discovering how to engineer graphene structure on an atomic level.
A new study finds bias against both women and girls for jobs or activities requiring intellectual ability. The research underscores the pervasiveness of gender bias, held even among females, in both adults and young children.
The navigation system used by rodents is similar to that used by Pacific Islanders in finding their way through the open ocean without a compass, a team of neuroscientists has found.
Making good decisions typically involves gathering information over at least several seconds, much longer than the time that individual brain cells take to process their inputs. However, this disparity does not reduce our ability to make accurate choices, finds a new study by NYU neuroscientists.
The Internet Research Agency, a Russia-based group of Internet trolls, relied on local news more than it did fake news to disrupt the 2016 presidential election, finds a new analysis by NYU's Social Media and Political Participation lab.
Method Measures Inorganic Elements from Lithium to Uranium, Creating a “Fingerprint” That Can Distinguish Liquids from One Another
The NYU Holodeck Project explores the future of technology & the infinite possibilities for communication. In Professor Ken Perlin’s Future Reality Lab (NYU Courant Institute), they’re testing out 3-dimensional animation software called “ChalkTalk” that lets you draw in midair, and a new VR prototype called “The Cave” where you can go to the movies with all your friends - without ever leaving home.
This new research was led Adam Buchwald, associate professor of communicative sciences and disorders at NYU Steinhardt’s School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, as well as Carolyn Falconer-Horne, a recent Ph.D. graduate of the department.
