Monkeys Show Spontaneous Mirror Self-Recognition After Learning Precise Instrumental Mirror Use[Feb 14, 2017]
Testing mirror self-recognition (MSR) has become the main approach to examining the existence of self-recognition in animals, and only a few species have passed this test. A recent study conducted by researchers at Dr. GONG Neng's team from the Non-human Primate Facility of the Institute of Neuroscience of Chinese Academy of Sciences demonstrated that monkeys showed spontaneous MSR behaviors after learning precise visual-proprioceptive association for mirror images.
Chinese scientists announced on Jan. 15 that they have developed a new bright VUV FEL light source, the Dalian Coherent Light Source (DCLS), which can deliver world’s brightest FEL light in an energy range from 8 to 24 eV, making it unique of the same kind that only operates in the VUV region.
2016: Dazzling Achievements Outshine in CAS[Dec 27, 2016]
The year 2016 has witnessed every scientific innovation and breakthrough from outer space to deep sea made by CAS, signaling that CAS has entered the world's leading ranks in relevant fields.
China launched a carbon dioxide monitoring satellite via a Long March-2D rocket from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China's Gobi Desert at 3:22 a.m. Thursday. China is the third country after Japan and the United States to monitor greenhouse gases through its own satellite.
CAS in the Belt and Road Initiative[Nov 07, 2016]
First International Science Forum of National Scientific Organizations on the Belt and Road Initiative was held on Nov. 7-8 in Beijing.
Recently, a joint team of the University of Science and Technology of China and the Peking University made breakthrough in quantum simulation of ultracold atoms. The joint team pioneered the proposal and realization of two-dimensional spin-orbit coupling for ultracold quantum gases.
