A Dinosaur Needed to Cool Its Brain?

A Dinosaur Needed to Cool Its Brain?

It’s been millions of years since T. rex took its last breath, but a Biological Sciences grad student is part of a team breathing life back into dinosaurs using high-powered computer simulations to model airflow through dinosaur snouts. The research has important implications for how dinosaurs used their noses not […]
