  1. Skin and non-adhesive cells found to play pivotal role in formation of fingers
    Human fingers are sculpted from a primitive pad-like structure during embryonic development. Sometimes, this process goes awry and babies are born with fused fingers or toes. A new study reveals new factors involved in the congenital malformation called syndactyly.
  2. Polymers get caught up in love-hate chemistry of oil and water
    Researchers have achieved a rare look at the inner workings of polymer self-assembly at an oil-water interface to advance materials for neuromorphic computing and bio-inspired technologies.
  3. Thinning, prescribed burns protected forests during the massive Carlton Complex wildfire
    In the first major study following the devastating 2014 Carlton Complex fire in north central Washington, researchers from the University of Washington and US Forest Service found that previous tree thinning and prescribed burns helped forests survive the fire.
  4. Distrust of past experience may underlie obsessive-compulsive symptoms
    People with higher obsessive-compulsive symptoms may place less trust in their past experience, leading to increased uncertainty, indecisiveness, and exploratory behaviors, according to new research.
  5. Using a cappella to explain speech and music specialization
    Speech and music are two fundamentally human activities that are decoded in different brain hemispheres. A new study used a unique approach to reveal why this specialization exists.
