The Projects Will Explore Fundamental Mysteries in Brain Science (image) National Science Foundation Share Print E-Mail Caption The awards stem from the cross-disciplinary NSF Integrative Strategies for Understanding Neural and Cognitive Systems program, which supports innovative, integrative, boundary-crossing approaches necessary to advance brain science. One project, led by Matthew Reidenback of the University of Virginia, builds on recent computational modeling that shows lobsters are capable of estimating not only the concentration of odors but also the time since the last odor was encountered. Shown here is an image of dye dispersal within a laboratory flume. The lobster carapace within the flume illustrates how a lobster might search for odors within natural environments.
