A new mathematical formula can reveal how fast a planet is rotating

Measuring the response to novelty: A mouse repeatedly touches the object and pulls away (nose and whisker contacts are color-coded; d is the distance of the snout from the object)
A mathematical model shows how our brains may take in novelty
RiboSNitches: these RNA segments in the mother and father have slightly different sequences, but very different folding patterns

Folds in the RNA strands called RiboSNitches may affect protein function
