Dear reader,

in the current issue of hoch³ FORSCHEN – the science quarterly – you´ll find the following topics:

Simulated synapses

Computer scientists from TU Darmstadt are using a trick from astrophysics to predict the rewiring of nerve cells in the brain. The aim of their model is to support neurosurgeons and advance artificial intelligence.

More power for the green transformation

International treaties set the framework but the future of our planet is decided largely in the nation states. Political scientists at TU Darmstadt analyse climate protection policy in the global South.

Cool technology

Professor Thomas Burg freezes living cells and organisms under the light microscope without a time delay. His aim: a better link between light and electron microscopy.

Longstanding puzzle about beta decay solved

An international collaboration including contributions from TU Darmstadt solved a 50-year-old puzzle that explains why beta decays of atomic nuclei are slower than what is expected based on the beta decay of free neutrons.
