New method for recording bird flight in 3D

Researchers in the Lentink lab developed a new way to record wing shape during bird flight in 3D. This high-resolution, high-speed, automated reconstruction method could be applied to any studies of movement.

The brain doesn’t navigate quite like a GPS

Neuroscientists’ discovery of grid cells, popularly known as the brain’s GPS, was hailed as a major discovery. But new results suggest the system is more complicated than anyone had guessed.

Deep learning algorithm could aid drug development

Combining computer science and chemistry, researchers show how an advanced form of machine learning that works off small amounts of data can be used to solve problems in drug discovery.
