It’s almost the end of the year and a here’s an early holiday present! The winter issue of RIKEN Research is here, covering plant parasites, depression, atomic clocks, and more! Enjoy!
Amanda Alvarez writes about how neuroscientists are studying consciousness with mathematics
Fall is here, and with it comes the latest issue of RIKEN Research. This issue covers tactile learning during sleep, supercomputers and simulations, solar cells, fly olfaction, tumor vaccines, and more
Scientists have identified where social memories are stored in the brains of mice. Mice are forgotten because memories cannot be retrieved.
iPS cell-derived retinal cells have been successfully transplanted from one monkey to another without need of immunosuppressant drugs.

Measuring altitude using atomic clocks seems like a crazy idea, but it’s already being done at RIKEN in Japan
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. Yet we are all walking around undergoing a constant turnover of cellular parts, and so are the lobsters and crabs Marder studies.
