FAU neuroscientists and collaborators found a surprising response to cocaine in a novel strain of mutant mice - they failed to show hyperactivity seen in normal mice when given cocaine and didn't run around.
FAU's Charles E. Schmidt College of Science will host its 2019 "Frontiers in Science" series with seven different lectures, on Fridays from Jan. 11 through April 5.
Led by researchers in FAU's College of Engineering and Computer Science, FAU will establish Florida's first NSF-funded Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning Training and Research Laboratory.
One would assume that since humans and many animals tend to get stiffer and perhaps tougher as they reach adulthood, the same would be true for sharks. FAU and NOAA scientists set out to test this hypothesis.
FAU Brain Institute fellows have received more than $1.1 million from the Florida Department of Health's Ed and Ethel Moore Alzheimer's Disease Research Program.
Researchers from FAU's College of Engineering and Computer Science and FAU's Harbor Branch have developed a novel technique to identify groupers by their sounds or grouper calls using deep neural networks.
FAU researchers have discovered what might be an effective strategy to prevent and combat cognitive dysfunction in obese individuals using an effective form of exercise - high-intensity interval exercise.
FAU's Charles E. Schmidt College of Science is among a handful of academic institutions in the U.S. appointed to serve on the International Telecommunication Union of the United Nations.
An innovative agent that has been used for decades to treat alcohol-use disorder is showing real promise for the treatment of stroke and has resulted in a U.S. patent application for a neuroscientist at FAU.
A study is the first to measure the physiological effects of whole crude oil on the sensory system of a marine animal - the Atlantic stingray. Results show a significant impact after just 48 hours of exposure.
