Thirty percent of the refugees the U.S. takes in every year are children. A new Medical Center study shows that the developmental screenings recommended by pediatricians don’t always translate to other cultures.
Using the spring force produced by light circulating in a miniaturized resonator, a team of engineering researchers from the University of Rochester and the University of Victoria has discovered a new approach to detecting single particles.
The brain uses a “just in time” system for delivering the oxygen that fuels nerve cells. These findings from the University’s Center for Translational Neuromedicine could shed light on the cognitive decline that accompanies diseases like Alzheimer’s.
A new study shows that the polar seas are much better than other regions of the ocean at trapping carbon from marine plankton.
Patients carrying certain mutations that cause long QT syndrome, a rare cardiac rhythm disorder, have an increased risk for developing seizures, according to a new study from the Medical Center. The study is the first to demonstrate a link between LQTS and seizures.
While many signs of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are present before age two, the majority of children with ASD are not diagnosed until after age four. Medical Center researchers have identified a simple test to screen younger children for hearing deficiencies associated with autism.
In a review of the state of the research in this field, Rochester physicist Riccardo Betti concludes the goal of realizing abundant, clean energy from inertial confinement fusion remains elusive, despite recent significant progress.
