Fatigue due to repetitive strain is the leading cause of failure in metal components and structures, but new research shows how crystalline structures called nanotwins can slow the accumulation of fatigue-related damage.
With “trans-Tango,” a technology developed at Brown University and described in a new study in Neuron, scientists can bridge across the connections between neurons to trace — and in the future control — brain circuits.
A person’s ability to smell may vary throughout the day in accordance with their circadian rhythm, according to new evidence in a small study by Brown University researchers who are looking at how sleep may influence eating patterns in teens.
With an emphasis on global field experience and integration with social sciences, the Brown University School of Public Health will offer a two-year master’s degree in global public health beginning next fall.
In addition to formal efforts organized through the Leadership Alliance to bring scholars to campus, members of the Brown community are raising funds, housing visiting students and offering direct assistance to those affected by Hurricane Maria.
With high-tech spaces for 15 faculty research groups and more than 100 research associates and graduate students, the building is designed to encourage the kind of interdisciplinary research for which Brown is known.
Brown University researchers have improved the resolution of terahertz emission spectroscopy — a technique used to study a wide variety of materials — by 1,000-fold, making the technique useful at the nanoscale.
After years of private-public partnership to transform the long-vacant former South Street Power Station into a mixed-used development, Brown’s relocation of 400 staff members brings new vibrancy to its Jewelry District campus.
Research by planetary scientists at Brown University finds that periodic melting of ice sheets on a cold early Mars would have created enough water to carve the ancient valleys and lakebeds seen on the planet today.
