Scripps Scientists Image Deep Magma beneath Pacific Seafloor Volcano

March 27, 2013

Since the plate tectonics revolution of the 1960s, scientists have known that new seafloor is created throughout the major ocean basins at linear chains of volcanoes known as mid-ocean ridges. But where exactly does the erupted magma come from?

Wearable Sensor Uses Ultrasound to Provide Cardiac Imaging On the Go

January 25, 2023

A new wearable, non-invasive heart monitor for humans provides real-time, automated insights on the difficult-to-capture pumping activity of the heart – and it works even when a person is exercising.

Uncovering the Secrets of the Adolescent Brain

September 29, 2015

A cross-disciplinary team of University of California, San Diego social and medical scientists will lead an ambitious, longitudinal national study to probe the mysteries of the adolescent brain.

Radiation Therapy Vital to Treating Brain Tumors, but It Exacts a Toll

June 9, 2017

Radiation therapy (RT) using high-energy particles is a common and critical component in successfully treating patients with brain tumors but it is also associated with significant adverse effects. In a new study, researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine report that irradiation can cause broader adverse…

Flies Possess More Sophisticated Cognitive Abilities than Previously Known

February 16, 2022

Common flies feature more advanced cognitive abilities than previously believed. Using a custom-built immersive virtual reality arena, neurogenetics and real-time brain activity imaging, researchers found attention, working memory and conscious awareness-like capabilities in fruit flies.

Nanomaterial Self-Assembly Imaged in Real Time

June 8, 2015

A team of researchers from UC San Diego, Florida State University and Pacific Northwest National Laboratories has for the first time visualized the growth of “nanoscale” chemical complexes in real time, demonstrating that processes in liquids at the scale of one-billionth of a meter can be documented as they happen.

Hearing Loss is Associated with Subtle Changes in the Brain

November 21, 2023

A team of UC San Diego Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science along with Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute researchers employed hearing tests and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to determine whether hearing impairment is associated with differences

New Technology from UC San Diego Cracks Fundamental Challenge in Neuroscience

October 10, 2022

A new study by researchers at the University of California San Diego demonstrates a new neurotechnology geared toward answering a long-running question in neuroscience: How can scientists link the separate activity of many single neurons in the brain to the waves and oscillations of the local broade

New Study Reveals What’s Behind a Tarantula’s Blue Hue

November 30, 2015

Scientists recently discovered that tiny, multilayer nanostructures inside a tarantula’s hair are responsible for its vibrant color. The science behind how these hair-raising spiders developed their blue hue may lead to new ways to improve computer or TV screens using biomimicry.

UC San Diego Engineers Receive 2 out of 10 Prestigious National Young Investigators Awards

July 21, 2022

…in medicine. Poulikakos develops imaging methods to visualize the fibrous properties of tissue with nanoscale optics. Morimoto builds soft, flexible robots that can snake their way through the body during surgery. Better imaging platforms "Receiving the Beckman Young Investigator award is a game-changing development for my research,” Poulikakos said. “I…
