Researchers use fMRI and state-of-the-art brain mapping techniques to study alcohol's effects on first-year students
The team, which includes several scientists affiliated with the Huck Institutes, recently completed a first-of-its-kind longitudinal pilot study aimed at better understanding how the neural processes that underlie responses to alcohol-related cues change across students' first year of college.
The guide is designed to help researchers achieve success in getting their National Science Foundation (NSF) research proposals funded.
An international research team led by Penn State professor and Huck Institutes researcher David Hughes has discovered that hyperparasitic fungi " which are not pathogens of ants " infect the zombie-ant fungi and significantly limit the viability of their spore-producing organs, thus reducing the danger posed to the colony.
A research team led by Laura Klein has found a potential link between behavioral and physiological symptoms of autism spectrum disorders and gastrointestinal and immune responses to gluten- and casein-derived peptides.
Kelli Hoover and her research team have identified the viral gene responsible for inducing "tree top disease" in gypsy moths.
