Shift in caribou movements may be tied to human activity — ScienceDaily

Human activities might have shifted the movement of caribou in and near the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, according to scientists with the University of Cincinnati. Each year caribou take on one of nature’s longest land migrations, trekking hundreds of miles across Alaska and Canada to find food and give birth in their preferred calving grounds. […]

Fish-inspired robots coordinate movements without any outside control — ScienceDaily

Schools of fish exhibit complex, synchronized behaviors that help them find food, migrate and evade predators. No one fish or team of fish coordinates these movements nor do fish communicate with each other about what to do next. Rather, these collective behaviors emerge from so-called implicit coordination — individual fish making decisions based on what […]

CAPTUREing Whole-Body 3D movements | EurekAlert! Science News

In the last decade, Neuroscientists have made major advances in their quest to study the brain. They can assemble complete wiring diagrams and catalogue the brain’s many cell types. They’ve developed electrode arrays for recording electrical activity in individual neurons and placed itty bitty microscopes on the heads of mice to visualize their brain activity. […]
