How a hormone helps plants build leaves’ ventilation system

As the world warms up, plants face a predicament – the same small gaps they need to open to exchange gases additionally let out...
A 3D rendering of the serotonin system in the left hemisphere of the mouse brain reveals two groups of serotonin neurons in the dorsal raphe that project to either cortical regions (blue) or subcortical regions (green) while rarely crossing into the other’s domain

A new map of the brain’s serotonin system

Earlier before six years, using neuroanatomical methods that they invented, scientists found that the brain's serotonin system in brain promotes pleasure. Now, after six years,...
A Stanford-designed hybrid optical-electrical computer designed specifically for image analysis could be ideal for autonomous vehicles

New AI camera for faster, more efficient image classification

Scientists at the Stanford University have invented a new type of the AI camera that can classify images faster and more energy efficient. This camera is...
In this electron micrograph, prostate tumor cells dying from a type of programmed cell death called apoptosis are shown (purple) alongside healthy cancer cells (yellow). Scientists are learning more about how apoptosis spreads through cells.

Standford scientists discovered the speed of cells death

Two Stanford University system's biologists, Xianrui Cheng and James Ferrell, have discovered the speed at which cells die. The study could resolve a debate...

Fishing bans protect fish and don’t harm fishing communities

A new study led by Stanford scientists suggests that fishing bans don't hurt fishing communities. Such bans hold the potential to aid fishes to survive....
Making plans is essential for humans to gain autonomy over their lives

Making plans is essential for humans to gain autonomy over their lives

Why do people get upset when something about their planning goes awry? When a person forget about his/her already scheduled meeting or multitasking, something goes...
