The research was conducted in the well understood sensory system of rat whiskers, which operate much like human fingers, providing tactile information about shape and texture. This information travels from nerve fibers at the base of the whiskers to the thalamus in the midbrain and then is processed in the cerebral cortex. Past research has mapped each whisker to a specific barrel shaped cluster of neurons in the brain.
The fact that temperatures were rising was never really in dispute among scientists, who had thermometers as well as tree rings to confirm the trend. But still scientists struggled with how to correct for the so called “divergence problem.” The present study adds support for another proxy for tree growth: ring density. Trees tend to produce cells with thicker walls at the end of the growing season, forming a dark band of dense wood.

Now, 40 blocks south, rising on the onetime site of parking lots and warehouses in Manhattanville is the University’s effort to recreate that kind of collaborative space in the Jerome L. Greene Science Building not just for a single department, but for a wide range of disciplines related to neuroscience. The first new structure to be completed in the University’s long term campus plan, the nine story, 450,000 square foot building will have 60 laboratories where faculty and students will explore the relationships between gene function, brain wiring and behavior research with vast implications for the treatment of brain illnesses and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s..
