Forschungszentrum Jülich - Annual Report 2011

New Findings on Stroke Rehabilitation 1 June 2011 | After a left-hemispheric stroke, many pa- tients suffer from a motor cognition disorder. They find it difficult to make complex movements learnt in the past. In the Journal of Neuroscience, researchers from Jülich and Co- logne published findings showing that these patients are still capable of learning new motor skills but that they can- not recall old skills learnt before their stroke. These findings will be used to help patients recover after a stroke. Research Cooperation on Solar Energy 23 June 2011 | The Helmholtz Association and the US Nation- al Renewable Energy Laboratory agree upon closer cooper- ation in solar energy research in order to accelerate techno- logical development. Jülich is one of three Helmholtz centres who signed the agreement. “At Forschungszentrum Jülich, we are concerned with making solar energy more cost-effective by developing new materials,” said Prof. Harald Bolt, member of the Board of Directors. Tracking Down an Exotic Particle 29 June 2011 | The newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zei- tung reports on evidence of a new exotic particle uncovered by measurements at the Jülich accelerator. In contrast to the known building blocks of atomic nuclei comprising two or three quarks, the exotic particle could consist of six quarks. The international WASA-at-COSY collaboration involving more than 120 scientists from six countries conducted the experiments. Annual Report 2011 | Forschungszentrum Jülich 9
