How do hair follicles grow? Study untangles the science

Since decades, scientists are trying to discover- How do hair follicles grow from a sea of seemingly uniform skin cells during embryonic development? Now, Yale...
School-based nutritional programs reduce student obesity

School-based nutritional programs reduce student obesity

There is some evidence that school-based nutrition education programs increase healthy eating habits for children and adolescents. A recent study by the Yale scientists...
The top row shows images that our participants viewed in the fMRI scanner. The bottom row shows neural reconstructions from the participants' brain activity that predict where people will direct their eyes, overlaid on top of the images. Note that just the colored overlay predicting eye movements is reconstructed from brain activity and not the image underlay. The brighter white and pink areas in the reconstructions show where people directed their attention. CREDIT Chun Lab Yale
