A newborn baby's brain responds to being touched on the face, according to new research. Babies use this sense of touch -- facial somatosensation -- to find and latch onto their mother's nipple, and should have this ability from birth. Premature babies often have difficulty feeding, and underdevelopment of their facial sensitivity may be one of the main causes.

21:05 Aps.org Editors' SuggestionsSpin and Charge Pumping by a Steady or Pulse-Current-Driven Magnetic Domain Wall: A Self-Consistent Multiscale Time-Dependent Quantum-Classical Hybrid Approach

Author(s): Marko D. Petrović, Bogdan S. Popescu, Utkarsh Bajpai, Petr Plecháč, and BranislavK. Nikolić The advanced computational method presented in this study is important for a variety of effects studied in spintronics that involve interplay between spin-transfer torque, spin pumping, and the damping of magnetization dynamics. Other approaches either use a purely time-dependent classical scheme, such as micromagnetics, or combine it with a steady-state quantum description that cannot take into account the impact of time-dependent fields due to evolving magnetic moments on electrons. This numerically exact framework will impact the computational design of spintronic nanodevices utilizing magnetic domain walls or skyrmions for e.g. bioinspired computing.

How can a doctor predict the treatment outcome of an individual patient? Traditionally, the effectiveness of medical treatments is studied by randomized trials, but is this really the only reliable way to evaluate treatment effectiveness, or could something be done differently? How can the effectiveness of a treatment method be evaluated in practice? Could some patients benefit from a treatment that does not cause a response in others?

Fujii, I. Vobornik, M. Finazzi, and M. Jamet Spin-charge interconversion (SCI) phenomena are now at the core of the field of spin-orbitronics. They allow to generate or detect spin currents in nonmagnetic materials and to manipulate the magnetization of nanomagnets by spin-orbit torque. Here, the authors show that spin-charge interconversion can be tuned by quantum size effects in ultrathin bismuth films. Epitaxially grown on germanium, bismuth first forms nanocrystals with a size less than the electron Fermi wavelength. Quantum confinement in these nanocrystals leads to high bulk resistance which can be interpreted as a semimetal-to-semiconductor

Author(s): Nvsen Ma, Guang-Yu Sun, Yi-Zhuang You, Cenke Xu, Ashvin Vishwanath, Anders W.

In so-called deconfined quantum phase transitions, the conventional quasiparticle used in standard mathematical descriptions must be replaced by fractionalized (“split-up”) quasiparticles. Here, the authors present calculations aimed directly at the most promising experimental investigations, where the quasiparticles or their fractionalized parts are directly probed, for example, by neutron scattering. They present calculations of the spectral functions measured in such experiments to exhibit the deconfined transition and fractionalization phenomenon therein between a magnetic and a nonmagnetic
