In a future built on quantum technologies, planes and spaceships could be fueled by the momentum of light. Quantum computers will crunch through complex problems spanning chemistry to cryptography with greater speed and energy efficiency than existing processors. But before this future can come to...

A new method of interpreting brain activity could potentially be used in clinics to help determine the best treatment options for depression, according to a study led by researchers at the Stanford School of Medicine. Stanford researchers and their collaborators used electroencephalography, a tool...

As the cost of living surges in a number of U.S. cities, what happens to schools when teachers’ salaries don’t keep pace? A Stanford-led study finds that even in an area where teachers earn well above the national average, these professionals are feeling the squeeze—and their financial anxiety is...

One by one, the students inched toward the edge, steeled themselves for what they were about to do, then stepped into empty space. As a rope caught them and they swung out into the air in the Arrillaga Outdoor Education and Recreation Center’s climbing gym, their instructors hoped to impart a...
