11 Emerging Scientific Fields That Everyone Should Know About

11 Emerging Scientific Fields That Everyone Should Know About | Didactics and Technology in Education | Scoop.it

There was a time when science could be broken down into neat-and-tidy disciplines — straightforward things like biology, chemistry, physics, and astronomy. But as science advances, these fields are becoming increasingly specialized and interdisciplinary, leading to entirely new avenues of inquiry. Here are 11 emerging scientific fields you should know about.

Brain Surgeons Find The Neurological Basis of Human Speech

Brain Surgeons Find The Neurological Basis of Human Speech | Didactics and Technology in Education | Scoop.it

A team of scientists at UC San Francisco has uncovered the neurological basis of speech motor control, the complex coordinated activity of tiny brain regions that controls our lips, jaw, tongue and larynx as we talk.
Published recently in the journal Nature, the work has potential implications for developing computer-brain interfaces for artificial speech communication and for the treatment of speech disorders. It also sheds light on an ability that is unique to humans among living creatures but poorly understood.

Future science: Using 3D worlds to visualize data

Future science: Using 3D worlds to visualize data | Didactics and Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Take a walk through a human brain? Fly over the surface of Mars? Computer scientists at the University of Illinois at Chicago are pushing science fiction closer to reality with a wraparound virtual world where a researcher wearing 3D glasses can do all that and more.

In the system, known as CAVE2, an 8-foot-high screen encircles the viewer 320 degrees. A panorama of images springs from 72 stereoscopic liquid crystal display panels, conveying a dizzying sense of being able to touch what's not really there.
