Their research in mice suggests that protecting axons—the fiber-like projections that connect brain cells—prevents the long-term neuropsychiatric problems caused by blast-related TBI.
Gregory Howes, associate professor in physics and astronomy, has received an award for his paper published in the journal “Physics of Plasmas.” Howes and collaborators were the first group to run supercomputer simulations of the kinetic turbulence in solar wind. He’ll receive the award on Nov. 2.
Within the fields of history and journalism, the use of geographic information systems (GIS) has greatly changed the way we visualize, understand, and analyze racial bias within the United States and around the globe.
