Early Differentiation Of Higher Brain Structures Affected By Competing Pathways
2013-04-26 11:36:30

Georgia Institute of Technology Sand-dwelling and rock-dwelling cichlids living in East Africa's Lake Malawi share a nearly identical genome, but have very different personalities. The territorial rock-dwellers live in communities where social interactions are important, while the sand-dwellers are itinerant and less aggressive. Those behavioral differences likely arise from a complex region of the brain known as the telencephalon, which governs communication, emotion, movement and...

Motion Converted To Electronic Signals For Tactile Imaging By Piezoelectric 'Taxel' Arrays
2013-04-25 21:27:07

Georgia Institute of Technology Using bundles of vertical zinc oxide nanowires, researchers have fabricated arrays of piezotronic transistors capable of converting mechanical motion directly into electronic controlling signals. The arrays could help give robots a more adaptive sense of touch, provide better security in handwritten signatures and offer new ways for humans to interact with electronic devices. The arrays include more than 8,000 functioning piezotronic transistors, each of...

Adhesive Force Differences Allows Separation Of Stem Cells To Advance Therapies
2013-04-08 11:28:26

Georgia Institute of Technology A new separation process that depends on an easily-distinguished physical difference in adhesive forces among cells could help expand production of stem cells generated through cell reprogramming. By facilitating new research, the separation process could also lead to improvements in the reprogramming technique itself and help scientists model certain disease processes. The reprogramming technique allows a small percentage of cells — often taken...
