“Traveling” Droughts Bring New Possibilities for Prediction

Droughts can travel hundreds to thousands of kilometers from where they started, like a slow-moving hurricane. A new study sheds light on how these droughts evolve in space and time, bringing vital new insight for water managers.

New Method Rescues Donor Organs to Save Lives

Researchers from Columbia Engineering and Columbia University Medical Center have—for the first time—maintained a fully functional lung outside the body for several days. They designed the cross-circulation platform that maintained the viability and function of the donor lung and the stability of the recipient over 36-56 hours, used the advanced support system to fully recover the functionality of lungs injured by ischemia and made them suitable for transplant.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s – a Key Discovery About Human Memory

As Superman flies over the city, people on the ground famously suppose they see a bird, then a plane, and then finally realize it’s a superhero. But they haven’t just spotted the Man of Steel – they’ve experienced the ideal conditions to create a very strong memory of him.

Cerebrospinal Fluid Shows Promise as Autism Biomarker

Researchers from the UC Davis MIND Institute, University of North Carolina (UNC) and other institutions have found that altered distribution of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in high-risk infants can predict whether they will develop autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The study appears today in the journal Biological Psychiatry.

Iron Dissolved by Air Pollution May Increase Ocean Potential to Trap Carbon

Iron particles generated by cities and industry are being dissolved by man-made air pollution and washed into the sea – potentially increasing the amount of greenhouse gases that the world’s oceans can absorb, a new study suggests.

2 Billion People Don't Have Access to Modern Financial Tools

Darden Dean Scott C. Beardsley interviews Shamina Singh, president of the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth, which addresses such questions. One answer: “data philanthropy.” With 2 billion people across the globe facing practical barriers to a formal financial system, putting an end to information inequality is an integral step toward inclusive economic growth. Mastercard and others have made a commitment to close the data divide and give millions of consumers and small businesses access to the global economy.

Study Finds New Mechanism to Control Information Flow in the Brain

Specialized nerve cells, known as somatostatin-expressing (Sst) interneurons, in the outer part of the mammalian brain (or cerebral cortex) — play a key role in controlling how information flows in the brain when it is awake and alert. This is the finding of a study published online in Science March 2 by a team of neuroscientists at NYU Langone Medical Center and its Neuroscience Institute.
