Variability Keeps The Body In Balance

Using mathematical theory and software tools, Caltech researcher John Doyle studies why a variable heart rate is a sign of health and fitness.

Valuable Decisions

Neuroeconomists recognize that while decision making is complex and a bit messy, it is also so central to our daily lives that a better understanding could greatly enhance our grasp of human nature.

A New Way to Prevent the Spread of Devastating Diseases

Researchers around the country are adopting a technique developed in the Caltech lab of Nobel Laureate David Baltimore to try to guard against infection. The method, called VIP, was originally designed to trigger an immune response to HIV, and because of its success with HIV is now being studied, in mice, for protection against influenza, malaria, hepatitis C, and tuberculosis.

Sensing Neuronal Activity With Light

A technique developed by Caltech researchers uses a genetic tool and light to view and map neuronal circuits.
