Brain May Not Need Body Movements to Learn Virtual Spaces

A new study conducted by the University of Arizona and the University of California, Davis enhances our understanding of how the brain learns in virtual reality.

Study of Ancient Climate Suggests Warming Could Accelerate as CO2 Levels Rise

For the first time, a model used to assess climate change has matched the geological evidence of a past warm climate, scientists report. The results underscore the model's predictive powers and suggest that with increasing carbon dioxide levels, the Earth may warm more rapidly than previously thought.

Sound of the Future: A New Analog to Quantum Computing

University of Arizona engineers researching the emerging field of phononics are using soundwaves to search through big data with more stability and ease.

Community Partnerships Power Oro Valley Incubator

Thanks to years of work from community, industry and University of Arizona leaders, a biotech incubator in Oro Valley will soon be a reality. The University of Arizona Center for Innovation at Oro Valley will give biotech startups access to lab space, industry expertise and business coaching.

Biosphere 2 Rain Forest Closed During Drought Experiment

Drought will soon descend on the University of Arizona’s Biosphere 2 rain forest, and an international research team will be ready with an array of instruments to record what unfurls under the glass.

Topography Could Save Sensitive Saguaros as Climate Changes

Researchers found that variations in Tumamoc Hill’s topography interacted with climate fluctuations to produce unexpected demographic patterns in the saguaro population.
