Purdue SMART (Sustainable Materials and Renewable Technology) Lab is testing novel sensors that monitor transportation infrastructure by embedding them in the concrete pavement to acquire information about the infrastructure’s health condition in real-time and communicate the data to computers. Smart sensors embedded in concrete will convert concrete’s vibrations into electrical signals that are read and analyzed by lab-built customized software, enable engineers to monitor the infrastructure and make data-driven decisions to better accommodate increased traffic and provide accurate estimates of road conditions during construction and its life. #purdue #purdueengineering #concreterepair

The study was published in the Cell, shows that we can use optical reading and writing of activity in specific neurons to manipulate memories. This allowed us to better understand and potentially improve on how neural circuit activity helps us to make decisions.
