NYU has received a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation for a three-year project entitled “Port Cities Environments in Global Asia,” which is a collaborative research and education initiative involving NYU faculty in New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai.
The “loudness” of our thoughts--or how we imagine saying something--influences how we judge the loudness of real, external sounds, a team of researchers from NYU Shanghai and NYU has found.
NYU Shanghai, NYU Law and the International Development Law Organization (IDLO) signed a memorandum of understanding on October 3 that establishes a framework for close cooperation on projects of mutual interest to promote the rule of law.
Two NYU students and two of the university’s alumni have been selected as 2017 Schwarzman Scholars, an honor that will support master’s degree study at Tsinghua University in Beijing.
The maneuvers of flying insects are unmatched by even the best pilots, and this might be due to the fact that these critters don’t obey the same aerodynamic laws as airplanes, a team of Courant researchers has found.
New York University researchers have devised a computer model to explain how a neural circuit learns to classify sensory stimuli into discrete categories, such as “car vs. motorcycle.” Their findings shed new light on the brain processes underpinning judgments we make on a daily basis.
NYU chemists have developed a computational approach for determining the viability and suitability of complex molecular structures—an advancement that could aid in the development of pharmaceuticals as well as a range of other materials.
The findings show that millions of families in China face substantial financial constraints in their children’s preschool attendance, particularly in rural areas -- and call for government investment to address this challenge.
The study finds evidence that the design of the built environment may influence how much walking and bicycling people do in densely populated Chinese cities.
The New York University-East China Normal University Institute for Social Development at NYU Shanghai develops a descriptive understanding of children’s condition in contemporary China.
