Babies and Facial Expressions - Brain Development as a Response to Facial Cues

At the University of Heidelberg, developmental psychologists are investigating the response of babies to the gestures and facial expressions of adults. During their first year of life, babies’ brains develop at an astonishing pace - and facial expressions play a role. That’s because even very young babies are keen observers of facial expressions, and can draw conclusions based on them.

This ability plays a very important role in emotional development, and even the acquisition of language.

Are parent-child interactions the same across cultures?

Our studio guest is the Gabriel Scheidecker of the Free University of Berlin’s Languages of Emotion Cluster of Excellence.

The Secret of Scent - Boosting Flavor without Fat or Sugar

Researchers at the University of Dresden have been investigating the sense of taste in humans. Although our tongues detect only the major flavor groups, our noses have around 350 different kinds of olfactory receptors, which can detect even the tiniest flavor molecules and send the scent signal straight to our brains.

So could our sense of smell be used to trick us into tasting more flavor? If researchers succeed, one day it might.

A New Generation of Wood Houses - Earthquake-resistant Housing for Japan

Researchers from Switzerland and Japan have developed a new construction technique to be used in wood houses in Japan. Their wood components help wood homes withstand earthquakes and inhibit the growth of mold, which is a problem in Japan’s subtropical climate. The new wall elements are glued rather than joined by nails, which makes them more flexible.

They also incorporate an insulating layer made of wood that better resists the accumulation of moisture than the materials traditionally used in Japan.
