The impact of brumation, the winter dormancy that is observed in ectotherms, on memory remains unknown. The aim of this study was to examine whether an amphibian, the fire salamander (Salamandra salamandra), was able to retain learned spatial information after a period of brumation. Twelve fire salamanders were trained to make a simple spatial discrimination using a T maze.
The firm also hopes to apply its technology to detect other food allergens, including peanuts and dairy. But what if you could isolate the most grating sound and mute it? Or just lower the volume, much as you would on a TV? That the promise of the Here Active Listening system, a groundbreaking set of earbuds from New York Doppler Labs.

This paper presentation will include survey data from all participants on what is and is not working in terms of interdisciplinary collaboration, as well as what they have learned from the experience. It will also include details on the communication and feedback loop that has developed over the course of the project. In analyzing the relationship that I have formed with IDM, I hope to provide valuable insight as to how designers and scientists can successfully work together..
