One Night Train Experience You Won’t Want to Miss in Illinois This Labor Day Weekend

You don't need to be a kid to agree that trains are cool, and riding on one is even cooler. The only train I have ever ridden is the Metra (I think it's Metra) train from Harvard to Chicago, but I have always thought it would be cool to take a long trip via train. I may not be checking that train trip off my bucket list anytime soon, but this cool event happening at the Illinois Railway Museum over Labor Day weekend might just be the next best thing.

Study shows how microglia are prompted to change their state to adapt to different areas of the brain

From everyday actions like walking and talking to feats of athletic or academic excellence, the brain is constantly acquiring and seamlessly processing information to produce these incredible behaviors. The process requires a whole orchestra of cells listening to each other and tuning their functions to harmonize together. One of the remaining, most fundamental questions in neuroscience asks how cells in the brain move, interact, and coordinate with each other to produce these activities.

This Is North Dakota’s Favorite School Subject??

It's almost time to get back to school, so I thought it would be fun to look at what North Dakotans are saying is their favorite subject. If you ask me, I'd have a hard time naming a favorite -- school wasn't my thing. I'd easily tell you that math was my LEAST favorite, but we're trying to be positive here.

Using designs by Mother Nature, guiding flies, making things glow

Legendary scientist-entrepreneur Edwin H. Land created more than 40 years ago a refuge where scientists could sidestep bureaucracy and follow their research wherever it led them — often toward experiments considered impossible to do. That vision continues at Land’s Rowland Institute, which came to Harvard in 2002. At the heart of the institute lies the Rowland Fellows Program, which started when the Institute came to the University and since then has funded more than 35 young scientists from around the world, giving them the support to do cutting-edge research. The fellows will relocate their labs to the Cambridge science campus at Harvard beginning in the summer of 2024. Here are some of the innovative ideas the current Rowland Fellows are working on as the program marks its 20th year.
