Thirteen middle school teachers – from Southern California to the Bay Area – came to Stanford to learn about nanotechnology and to develop hands-on activities to use in their classrooms. The teachers are selected primarily from schools with students who are traditionally underrepresented in science.
A study from the Stanford Graduate School of Education of how students best learned a neuroscience lesson showed a distinct benefit to starting out by working with an interactive 3D model of the brain.
Long-term hearing loss from loud explosions, such as blasts from roadside bombs, may not be as irreversible as previously thought, according to a new study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
A chemical code scrawled on histones — the protein husks that coat DNA in every animal or plant cell — determines which genes in that cell are turned on and which are turned off. Now, Stanford researchers have taken a new step in the deciphering of that histone code.
How do you prepare neuroscience graduate students for future careers? David Bochner served on a panel with the National Science Foundation to find answers. In this Neuwrite West blog entry he shares what he learned.
