Thanks, actin, for the memoriesThanks, actin, for the memories
Rice University theorists model complex interactions that allow for long-term memory
Thank the little “muscles” in your neurons for allowing you to remember where you live, what your friends and family look like and a lot more. New research at Rice University suggests actin filaments that control the shape of neuron cells may also be the key to the molecular machinery that forms and stores long-term memories.

Nanotubes assemble! Rice introduces ‘Teslaphoresis’Nanotubes assemble! Rice introduces ‘Teslaphoresis’
Reconfigured Tesla coil aligns, electrifies materials from a distance
Scientists at Rice University have discovered that the strong force field emitted by a Tesla coil causes carbon nanotubes to self-assemble into long wires, a phenomenon they call “Teslaphoresis.”  (April 14, 2016)
