Science & art: how NMR works and how NMR spectra have been used to compose music based on molecular structures.
None of us would get on a plane that had its parts changed in mid-air, says Eve Marder, who has spent her career probing a very specific cluster of crustacean nerve cells.

The parts of the brain responsible for creating a memory must be re-activated during a specific part of the sleep cycle for mice to remember.
I recently spoke with RIKEN scientist Shigeru Kuratani about evolutionary morphology, sci-fi monsters, the genius of Alien, and more.
