A gravity-based three-dimensional compass in the mouse brain

Head direction cells in the mammalian limbic system are thought to function as an allocentric neuronal compass. Although traditional views hold that the compass of ground-dwelling species is planar, Angelaki et al. 2019 show that head-direction cells in the rodent

Robots are learning how to walk like we do

Robots have walked on legs for decades. Today’s most advanced humanoid robots can tramp along flat and inclined surfaces, climb up and down stairs, and slog through rough terrain. Some can even jump.

A report about legged robots on the …
