How bees stay cool on hot summer days.
Columbia-led discovery in mice aids efforts to map the circuitry of the brain’s learning center; stands to inform studies of psychiatric disorders in which this circuitry goes awry.
The discovery might lead to the development of an energy-efficient way of processing data.
Researchers devised a way to listen to a nanoscale guitar for the first time – and then played the Cornell alma mater on it.
An international group of scientists co-led by a Cornell professor reports that solutions for sequestering carbon might literally be right under our feet.
In rat models, the novel scaffolding mimicked natural anatomy and boosted stem cell-based treatment; the approach is scalable to humans and advances effort toward clinical trials.
Johns Hopkins study sheds light on brain basis of risk-taking behavior
Halo of highly energized electrons around the black hole contracts dramatically during feeding frenzy.
Pulse pattern suggests distant black hole must be spinning at least at 50 percent the speed of light.
