Innovative Brain-Wide Mapping Reveals a Single Memory Is Stored Across Many Connected Brain Regions

Brain Regions Involved in Memory

A single memory is stored across many connected brain regions, according to an innovative brain-wide mapping study. Innovative brain-wide mapping study shows that “engrams,” the ensembles of neurons encoding a memory, are widely distributed, including among regions not previously realized. A new study from MIT’s Picower Institute for Learning and Memory provides the most extensive … Read more

Princeton Physicists Unravel a Puzzle To Speed Fusion Energy Development

Plasma Energy Generation Concept Slow

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory have created an efficient computer algorithm to model the crazy-quilt movement of free electrons during experimental efforts to harness the fusion power that drives the sun and stars. The approach solves a difficult equation, allowing for better control of the unpredictable and fast-moving electrons … Read more
