Armed with sledgehammers and vibration sensors, the scientists surveyed how soils throughout Port-au-Prince either amplify or muffle seismic vibrations. The resulting map can now be used to guide reconstruction efforts.

Computing and surgical technique have now become sophisticated enough to implant devices directly into neural tissue. In this feature, researchers at Albany Medical Center and the Wadsworth Center at the New York State Department of Health reveal a world where mind and machine merge. Their cutting-edge devices translate brain signals into action, helping people with ALS and other disabilities regain the ability to communicate.<br /> <br /> Science Bulletins is a production of the National Center for Science Literacy, Education, and Technology (NCSLET), part of the Department of Education at the American Museum of Natural History.<br /> <br /> Related Links<br /> AMNH: Brain-The Inside Story<br /> <a href="http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/brain/">http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/brain/</a><br /> <br /> AMNH News: Brain-related posts<br /> <a href="http://www.amnh.org/news/tag/brain/">http://www.amnh.org/news/tag/brain/</a><br /> <br /> Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health: Brain-Computer Interface System<br /> <a href="http://www.wadsworth.org/bci/index.html">http://www.wadsworth.org/bci/index.html</a><br /> <br /> NIH: Locked-In Syndrome<br /> <a href="http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/lockedinsyndrome/lockedinsyndrome.htm">http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/lockedinsyndrome/lockedinsyndrome.htm</a> Science Bulletins: Our Moon tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2012-01-22:2182797:Video:1831693 2012-01-22T07:48:04.005Z Donegal http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/Donegal <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/science-bulletins-our-moon"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/gEdxZNq-STplXBeyAxbqoKj42Ws0kB3IpMkBMgNQ0PRmMPatysgP0KZ7Dt4gdZtJcdW6VgvvcwMctJXj3JdKVl6XySBaP7DS/526619396.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>The peaceful glow of the moonlight in our sky belies a violent history.

But recent encounters between humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins reveal a playful side to interspecies interaction. In two different locations in Hawaii, scientists watched as dolphins "rode" the heads of whales: the whales lifted the dolphins up and out of the water, and then the dolphins slid back down. The two species seemed to cooperate in the activity, and neither displayed signs of aggression or distress. Whales and dolphins in Hawaiian waters often interact, but playful social activity such as this is extremely rare between species. The latest Bio Bulletin from the Museum's Science Bulletins program presents the first recorded examples of this type of behavior. Visitors to AMNH may view the video in the Hall of Biodiversity until February 9, 2012.<br /> <br /> Science Bulletins is a production of the National Center for Science Literacy, Education, and Technology (NCSLET), part of the Department of Education at the American Museum of Natural History.

A jawbone excavated in England and two molars found in southern Italy suggest that modern humans migrated northward thousands of years earlier than previously thought. These fossils were discovered and interpreted decades ago but recent analysis pushed back the age of the jawbone, while positively identifying the much-older molars as modern human. The latest Human Bulletin from the Museum's Science Bulletins program explains how this new data suggests a much longer period of interaction between humans and Neanderthals in northern Europe.
