Statistical model research by an IMES faculty member and an HST student improves analysis of skin conductance

By accounting for sweat physiology, method can make better use of electrodermal activity for tracking subconscious changes in physical or emotional state. Electrodermal activity (EDA) — the sweat-induced fluctuations of skin conductance made famous in TV dramatizations of lie-detector tests — can be a truly strong indicator of subconscious, or…

Technique recovers lost single-cell RNA-sequencing information

Boosting the efficiency of single-cell RNA-sequencing helps reveal subtle differences between healthy and dysfunctional cells. Sequencing RNA from individual cells can reveal a great deal of information about what those cells are doing in the body. MIT researchers have now greatly boosted the amount of information gleaned from each of…
