When you are out in the woods and hear a cracking sound, your brain needs to process quickly whether the sound is coming from, say, a bear or a chipmunk. In new research published in PLoS Biology, a biomedical engineer at Washington University in St. Louis has a new interpretation for an old observation, debunking an established theory in the process.
CSforAll, a national summit dedicated to expanding computer science courses for all students, took place at Washington University Oct 16-17. The event brought in about 300 teachers and administrators from school districts across Missouri and Southern Illinois.
In the body, cells move around to form organs during development; to heal wounds; and when they metastasize from cancerous tumors. A mechanical engineer at Washington University in St. Louis found that cells remember the properties they had in their first environment for several days after they move to another in a process called mechanical memory.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently awarded a team of researchers at Washington University in St. Louis a five-year, $1.6 million grant to develop a combined treatment option using drug treatment and physical therapy to better restore range of motion following injury.
Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” (1818) is one of the most influential artistic creations of the last two centuries. On Sunday, Oct. 29, the Washington University Symphony Orchestra will present three world premiere student compositions, inspired by Shelley’s book, in the E. Desmond Lee Concert Hall.
