There's an old adage that warns against passing judgment based on appearance, but female bluefin killifish, like many animal species, apparently don't share such human wisdom when choosing a mate.
Study Reveals Surprising Behavioral Changes that May Link to Leadership in this Species BROOKLYN, N.Y., May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- New findings published by researchers at the New
International Research Team Headed by NYU's Maurizio Porfiri Demonstrates Breakthrough in Machine Learning NEW YORK, Jan.
Recent studies from two research teams at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) demonstrate how underwater robots can be used to understand and influence the complex swimming behaviors of schooling fish.
An international team of scientists has shown bio-inspired robots can not only elicit fear in zebrafish, but that this reaction can be modulated by alcohol. These findings, published in PLOS ONE, are the latest in a series of experiments designed to test the ability of robots to influence live animals.
Probing the largely unexplored question of what characteristics make a leader among schooling fish, researchers have discovered that by mimicking nature, a robotic fish can transform into a leader of live ones.
NSF CAREER awardee studies the behavior of schooling fish and creates biologically inspired robots that may someday help preserve marine life.
