Cognitive neuroscientist Roberto Cabeza is tracking down memory in the brain, looking for the moment when new connections between stored information spark creativity.
Behavioral economist Bertil Tungodden is aiming to show how people perceive fairness in different ways, and how this influences their behavior.
How can we explain adequate behavior in social situations? Psychologist Marcel Brass uses behavioral experiments and neuroscientific methods to investigate social intelligence.
The RAS gene is a mysterious protein, and causes canter. Oncologist Channing Der co-discovered it in the 1980s. With his arduous research, he has made a big contribution to better therapies.
Moral philosopher R. Jay Wallace takes a close look at the rules, norms and agreements which are fundamental to our social relationships and society as a whole.
Physicist Cecilia Clementi uses statistical methods and AI to explain biological phenomena: for example, how the movement of atoms in proteins determines their function.
