- How depression and antidepressant drugs work: New insight from depressed mice helps researchers unite two hypotheses
- 17 May 2016 — New research demonstrates the effectiveness of ketamine to treat depression in a mouse model of the disease and brings together two hypotheses for the cause of depression. The research, led by Bernhard Lüscher, professor of biology and of biochemistry and molecular biology at Penn State University, is in press and will be published in the September 15, 2016 print edition of the journal Biological Psychiatry.
- Under Pressure: New technique could make large, flexible solar panels more feasible
- 13 May 2016 — A new, high-pressure technique may allow the production of huge sheets of thin-film silicon semiconductors at low temperatures in simple reactors at a fraction of the size and cost of current technology. A paper describing the research by scientists at Penn State University appears May 13, 2016 in the journal Advanced Materials.
