Violence has fallen in nearly all major U.S. cities since 1991, according to a new analysis by researchers at New York University. However, recent fluctuations in violence in selected cities point to temporary disruptions in this 17-year decline.
NYU researchers who outline a rule change that would shorten major-league baseball games by almost half an hour while making contests closer and, perhaps, re-igniting interest in the game.
NYU's Future Reality Lab will premiere CAVE, a ground-breaking extended reality story, Aug. 12-16 at this year’s SIGGRAPH in Vancouver.
Biologist Neville Sanjana has received the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Young Faculty Award for his proposal to develop new tools for precise gene repair using CRISPR.
How we see emotions on another person’s face depends on our pre-conceived views of how we understand these emotions, NYU researchers have found.
A team of scientists has captured on video a four-mile iceberg breaking away from a glacier in eastern Greenland, an event that points to one of the forces behind global sea-level rise.
NYU's Brenden Lake has been named to MIT Technology Review’s annual list of Innovators Under 35.
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.
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 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.
