Brain Functions

UT Austin Study Aims to Shield Critical Brain Functions From Surgery, Find New Treatments for Neurological Conditions

The brain controls much of what it means to be human — speech, memory, reasoning and everything we feel, think and believe. When brain surgery is necessary, the areas that control these crucial functions are often perilously close to the surgical site.

But what if there was a way to shift critical brain functions farther away from the surgical

Making Clean Hydrogen Is Hard, But Researchers Just Solved a Major Hurdle

For decades, researchers around the world have searched for ways to use solar power to generate the key reaction for producing hydrogen as a clean energy source — splitting water molecules to form hydrogen and oxygen. However, such efforts have mostly failed because doing it well was too costly, and trying to do it at a low cost led to poor
