FAU neuroscience, physics and nursing researchers have received a grant from the National Institute of Aging to test a mathematical model designed to optimize social and physical engagement in older adults.
An FAU study shows that when food is scarce, monarch butterfly caterpillars go from peaceful feeders to aggressive fighters. The results look something like a combination of boxing and "bumper" cars.
FAU Harbor Branch and FWC scientists successfully caught, tagged and released a juvenile smalltooth sawfish in the Indian River Lagoon - a major step for sawfish research and recovery efforts in Florida.
FAU and Memorial Healthcare System have formed a research partnership, which combines their expertise and resources in clinical research, clinical trials, basic research and translational biomedical research.
FAU is giving everyone the chance to cast their votes (again), but this time for the best images captured by its researchers in a contest that highlights work from across all of FAU's 10 colleges.
A study by FAU neuroscientists demonstrates how 'coming home' produces a signal of comfort in mice and is the first to show that home evokes a surge of dopamine that mimics the response to a dose of cocaine.
FAU scientists studied songbirds' gut microbiome and have identified potentially critical bacteria affecting cognition and performance.
FAU's Herbert Weissbach, Ph.D., received BioFlorida's "Lifetime Achievement Award," reserved to recognize outstanding industry leadership and significant contributions throughout an individual's career.
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.
