A Penn State research team has shown that it is possible to rapidly break down solid and liquid human waste to grow food with a series of microbial reactors.
A recent study suggests that people in the U.S. largely agree about what makes them feel loved, coming to a general consensus that it may be small gestures that matter most.
Plant-based sensors that measure a leaf's thickness and ability to store an electrical charge can tell farmers when crops need water, Penn State researcher said.
Inflammation is traditionally thought of as a symptom of sleep apnea, but it might actually precede the disorder, according to Penn State researchers.
Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie and several of his Big Ten and AAU presidential colleagues met April 25 on Capitol Hill with U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan.

Scientists have discovered a novel drug target and have rescued functional deficits in human nerve cells derived from patients with Rett Syndrome, a severe form of autism-spectrum disorder.
While the relationship between genetic factors and outcomes after brain injury is beginning to receive more attention recently, little study has been devoted to specific genes and their effects on concussion recovery.
Chemical transformation of human glial cells into neurons
In every agricultural region on Earth, huge amounts of the structural parts of crops -- things like cornstalks, sugar canes, beanstalks, and wheat stems -- are discarded because we haven't figured out a way to convert them into fuel. Plant scientist Daniel Cosgrove, who has devoted decades to studying the cell walls that make plant matter resistant to chemical conversion, thinks it doesn't have to be that way.
