Student-athletes who get a concussion often return to school within a week but still have significant problems in the classroom and cannot perform at a normal academic level, according to a new Medical Center study.
Using the same mathematical framework as the Rochester Cloak, researchers have been able to use flat screen displays to extend the range of angles that can be hidden from view. Their method lays out how cloaks of arbitrary shapes, that work from multiple viewpoints, may be practically realized in the near future using commercially available digital devices.
A new Medical Center study shows that repeated radiation therapy used to target tumors in the brain may not be as safe to healthy brain cells as previously assumed.
“There is increasing evidence that there is something fundamentally wrong with the way these patients hear, the way they feel things through their sense of touch, and in the way in which they see the environment,” says Medical Center neuroscientist and study author John Foxe.
A teenager with asthma could be coughing, wheezing, and feeling short of breath, but be too engrossed in texting with friends to even notice. Working with colleagues in computer science and engineering, School of Nursing professor Hyekyun Rhee uses this potential problem as a solution.
A team led by Robert Boyd has demonstrated that the transparent, electrical conductor indium tin oxide can result in up to 100 times greater nonlinearity than other known materials, a potential ‘game changer’ for photonics applications.
A new study by Maiken Nedergaard, co-director of the University’s Center for Translational Neuromedicine, reveals that our sleep-wake state appears to be dependent upon the concentration and balance of ions in the cerebral spinal fluid.
Are humans unique and alone in the vast universe? This question– summed up in the famous Drake equation–has for a half-century been one of the most intractable and uncertain in science. But a new paper shows that the recent discoveries of exoplanets combined with a broader approach to the question makes it possible to assign a new empirically valid probability to whether any other advanced technological civilizations have ever existed.
Medical Center researchers have uncovered a new mechanism of bone erosion and a possible biomarker for rheumatoid arthritis. The group is the first to demonstrate that immune cells, called B cells, contribute directly to the breakdown of bone.
