A few fish, like Mexican cavefish, have evolved in unique environments without predators. A study on escape evolution reveals vast differences in startle reflex responses between cavefish populations.
FAU College of Engineering and Computer Science researchers receive $653,393 grant to improve learning and operation of artificial intelligence systems.
FAU Harbor Branch and Bonefish & Tarpon Trust have reached a groundbreaking milestone in fish reproduction research by successfully inducing captive bonefish to spawn in aquaculture tanks.
FAU Schmidt College of Medicine researchers will analyze stem cell activation with a focus on age-related and degenerative diseases to provide a basis for the development of regenerative therapies.
FAU Harbor Branch scientists and collaborators have obtained a quantitative number for biomass from oceanic plastic debris using a novel visualization method that provides the first estimate of its kind.
In a commentary, FAU Schmidt College of Medicine researchers say "pandemic politics" is causing assaults on science, the FDA, the CDC as well as the health of the U.S. public.
FAU's Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing and collaborators have received a $5.3 million NIH grant to detect cognitive change in older drivers using rapidly available and discreet in-vehicle sensors.
A team of scientists from FAU's Harbor Branch and collaborators recently explored the depths of the "Green Banana" Blue Hole thanks to gutsy scuba divers and an innovative 500-pound autonomous benthic lander.
FAU's Harbor Branch has landed an $11,179,001 contract from the U.S. Office of Naval Research to develop a next-generation bathyphotometer sensor for natural oceanic bioluminescence assessments.
A study is the first to look inside the brains of cavefish with millimeter resolution and show how individual neurons and brain regions that drive complex behaviors, including sleep and feeding have evolved.
