A study using EEG suggests that the brain has several different mechanisms to help boost memory performance following a sudden change in the priority or relevance of a given piece of information.
With threats of sea level rise and other natural disasters, researchers from the College of Engineering and Computer Science are turning to nature to create bioinspired materials that mimic mangrove trees.
Bilingual children from immigrant families should not be expected to be two monolinguals in one. It takes them longer to learn two languages at once compared to just one, but a researcher says, "Don't worry."
A study that examined anxiety, depression, social withdrawal, and submissiveness found that teens with similar levels of anxiety and depression are more likely to remain friends from one year to the next.
James M. Sullivan, Ph.D., an internationally renowned researcher and a leading oceanographer, has been named executive director of FAU's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute.
A leading FAU scientist has received $708,044 from the Florida Department of Health to identify what contributes to the ability of tumor cells to move through the body and find other places to "set up shop."
FAU's College of Engineering and Computer Science has received a $599,983 NSF research grant for data mining models and algorithms for complex dynamic information networks for health care delivery.
A scientist's ground-breaking work on the basic mechanisms and biochemical basis of chronic pain and drug addiction have opened new avenues of research and identified novel drug targets for these disorders.
A study is the first to confirm the movement patterns and seasonal migrations of baby white sharks in the north Atlantic Ocean. Results provide novel insights into this vulnerable early stage of life.
FAU neuroscientist Alex Keene, Ph.D., is working on a joint project that uses genomic and transgenic technology in Mexican cavefish to identify genetic loci that contribute to sleep, feeding, and metabolism.
