Buckeye madness

Buckeye fans, your time is here. Ending their regular season 23-7, Ohio State's men's basketball team enters the Big Ten tournament as the No. 2 seed.

It's not just their athletic skills that have earned the Bucks acclaim this season. Guard Aaron Craft was recognized as an Academic All-American for the second year in a row, and was called "almost too good to be true" in a Sports Illustrated feature. And Coach Thad Matta's philanthropy shines, from helping kick off the Ohio Scholarship Challenge to winning $100,000 in the Infiniti Coaches' Charity Challenge.

Take a look back at season highlights from both the men's and women's teams. Watch for the latest news. O-H!

The frontiers of medicine


"Deep brain stimulation" may sound like science fiction--but at Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center, it's changing patients' lives. Led by Dr. Ali Rezai, the neuromodulation team places a small implant in the brain that regulates electrical signals with tiny electrodes.

Learn how this cutting-edge technology is eliminating tremors and could treat Alzheimer's, autism, seizures, migraines, addiction, and more.

No smoking


For coal to release heat, it needs to be set on fire, right? Wrong, says Ohio State Professor L.-S. Fan. He's pioneered a technique called coal-direct chemical looping, which chemically converts coal to heat, preventing air pollution.

Read about the student team who put Fan's method to the test, and what this milestone in clean coal technology could mean for jobs and U.S. energy independence.

Family dinner

One way to prevent childhood obesity is to teach children healthy eating habits at an early age, says Carolyn Gunther of Ohio State's Food Innovation Center. Her Simple Suppers program engages both parents and children in nutrition education and meal preparation during dinner hour.

See how setting the table or tearing lettuce can lead to a lifetime of healthy eating habits for kids.
