Exciting change is on the way! Please join us at nsf.gov for the latest news on NSF-funded research. While the NSF Science360 page and daily newsletter have now been retired, there’s much happening at nsf.gov. You’ll find current research news on the homepage and much more to explore throughout the site. Best of all, we’ve begun to build a brand-new website that will bring together news, social media, multimedia and more in a way that offers visitors a rich, rewarding, user-friendly experience.

Want to continue to receive email updates on the latest NSF research news and multimedia content? On September 23rd we’ll begin sending those updates via GovDelivery. If you’d prefer not to receive them, please unsubscribe now from Science360 News and your email address will not be moved into the new system.

Thanks so much for being part of the NSF Science360 News Service community. We hope you’ll stay with us during this transition so that we can continue to share the many ways NSF-funded research is advancing knowledge that transforms our future.

Recording the brain activity of a free-flying bat

Researchers have developed a way to study the brain of a bat as it flies, recording for the first time what happens as an animal focuses its attention. This groundbreaking advance allows us to see what happens in the brains of naturally-behaving animals, uninhibited by laboratory constraints. Because bats share the same brain structure as all mammals, including humans, the achievement, deepens our understanding of what happens in the brain as we move through the world.
