Years ago, Tzu-Chieh โ€œZijayโ€ Tang and his peers in his high school biology club would gather after school to go on a nature hike into the mountains of Taipei, Taiwan. Together, theyโ€™d trek eight or nine miles, often reaching the summit of choice past midnight. For Tang, thatโ€™s when the mountains truly became alive.

MIT neuroscientists have now devised a way to measure dopamine in the brain for more than a year, which they believe will help them to learn much more about its role in both healthy and diseased brains.

Shawn Reese is the perfect example of the complicated route that can lie ahead for workers of the future โ€” but also for the opportunities that are emerging. One approach is the one taken by AIM Photonics.

"As Hurricane Florence comes barreling down on the east coast, we consider why we can predict a solar eclipse centuries in advance, but we can only predict the weather about a week or two in advance. Can a small-scale movement, like the flap of a butterflyโ€™s wing, influence large-scale systems like hurricanes?

Learn about how Edward Lorenz's chaos theory affected our understanding of the weather prediction and the universe from the researchers and MIT EAPS
scientists who worked alongside him.
