How do we prepare ourselves to tackle the cybercrimes that threaten our personal and professional identities? This 7 week long course on Cybersecurity and Governance will prepare you tackle these issues.
This interdisciplinary Symposium covers the application of artificial intelligence (AI) throughout the entire life cycle of new materials — from materials simulations and synthesis to translating research into high-volume industrial production.
Biological rhythms are relevant for almost every aspect of an organism’s life from physiology to social behavior. Most recently a growing body of research explores the circadian clock’s involvement with human disease. Join us for a one-day symposium highlighting these translational aspects of chronobiology research.
Your personal brand or your professional reputation has a direct influence on your impact as a scientist, contributor, team player and leader. The way you are perceived is how you will be defined. The only way of changing or influencing that, is by being aware of that image and taking assertive steps to improve it.
What Happens When We Die? Surviving Cardiac Arrest
November 18, 2019
This evening panel will explore current scientific discoveries regarding our understanding of death and cardiac arrest. Topics include: the impact of recent discoveries related to brain protection strategies, reversing cardiac arrest and death, consciousness, the human experience of cardiac arrest, and transformational experiences of death.
The Junior Academy introduces exceptional students to an online community where they gain access to best-in-class STEM resources and work together to solve real-world problems. STEM professionals mentor student teams during 60-day innovation challenges sponsored by industry-leading companies via Launchpad, our interactive challenge platform. Students and mentors can participate from anywhere in the world and have multiple challenges a year to choose from. Accepted students and mentors receive free membership to the New York Academy of Sciences!
Available exclusively to our Member community, Member-to-Member Mentoring is a self-directed mentoring program that matches early career scientists and engineers with experienced STEM professionals for advice and coaching.
Special Issue: The Year in Neurology and Psychiatry
This concise issue of The Year in Neurology and Psychiatry contains papers on the genetics of cerebral small-vessel disease, human pluripotent stem cell–derived models and CNS drug screening, small molecule targeting of RNA structures in neurological disorders, and glial evolution as a determinant of human behavior and its disorders.
For 200 years—since 1817—the Academy has brought together extraordinary people working at the frontiers of discovery. Among the oldest scientific organizations in the United States, it has become not only an enduring cultural institution in New York, but also one of the most significant organizations in the global scientific community.
What does play have to do with learning? More than you may think. Today's kids are getting less playtime than previous generations, and that may have an impact on later learning development. Dr. Karen Adolph, Dr. Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, and Dr. David Kanter help us explore the playful side of education.
This podcast is produced in complement to an Academy workshop held earlier this summer on the relationship between early childhood play, the development of attention, and subsequent classroom learning abilities.
