For almost any conceivable skill or field of study, it’s generally accepted that the earlier one starts learning it, the better. Whether the skill be playing hockey, speaking French or composing symphonies, it always seems that the ones who have been doing it since childhood have a higher level of ability and a more natural way of doing whatever it may be. This trend is the result of higher brain plasticity in children, which allows for better assimilation of learning the earlier on it starts.
Dear Ms. Scientist,
Humans, key contributors to climate change, unknowingly depend on forests to combat the increasing carbon dioxide levels they are introducing into the atmosphere as levels are increasing more rapidly in the last 40 years than ever before.
When he arrived on campus in 1968, graduate student David Newby found himself amid campus-wide riots and protests in which he desired to take a more active role.
Over the weekend, UW Science Expeditions welcomed community members from children to retirees for three days of science exploration with 96 stations, seven science exhibits and three documentaries spread across 24 venues on campus.
With 2,813 votes collected and a 7 percent voter turnout for the Associated Students of Madison Spring Election, 39 UW-Madison students were elected to represent various ASM positions.

Shiela Reaves’ office is exactly what you’d imagine a professor’s office to look like: cozily collegiate with books everywhere. There is an entire wall made up of bookshelves and there are stacks of books on the two desks in the office. When I mentioned to Reaves that I was interested in neuroaesthetics, the science of the visual brain, she began to whirl about her office, plucking books from piles and from the shelves.
Conducting great research and making exceptional advancements in the field of engineering has earned two UW-Madison professors recognition by membership into an elite institution known as the National Academy of Engineering. Raymond J. Fonck and Thomas M. Jahns were announced as two of the 67 newly nominated members to the 2015 Class of the NAE, a profound professional distinction and high honor in the field.
This article is dedicated to Charles Darwin and David Baum. To Charles Darwin because his birthday is this week, February 12th, and to David Baum who exemplifies the humility and cleverness that Darwin himself possessed.
Professor Holly Gibbs described it as patchwork quilt, a collection of tidy squares carved into the heart of the Amazon rainforest with a mechanized efficiency Gibbs says is more sophisticated than even the Midwest’s corporate farms.
The enormity of research available at UW-Madison comes as no surprise to the students on campus. The research subjects range from common ones such as cancer research to something as rare as Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease. Truth be told, my understanding of PMD was minimal prior to this article since this disease affects one in almost 200,000 males in the United States. (PMD is an X-linked recessive trait that is only present in males; females are only possible carriers of PMD)
Dear Ms. Scientist,
Starting from scraps, material scientists search for raw materials that can be innovated or substituted to increase the functional efficiency and flexibility of the appropriate technologies. The idea behind the field stems from the notion that the efficiency of a product can be compromised by the choice of material used to construct such devices even with the best abilities of an engineer. Two members in this field from UW-Madison include Associate Professor Michael Arnold and Professor of Material Science and Engineering Padma Gopalan.
When graduate student Xiaojun Tan first noticed the epidermal growth factor receptors within the cancer cell, he was surprised. These receptors always branched off the cell’s surface, and had never been observed within the cell quite like this before. Yet, here in these chemically starved cancer cells, an inactive collection of these receptors had accumulated.
