Title: Hidden magnetism and hidden Fermi-liquid behavior of the cuprate high-temperature superconductors 

 We will review how neutron scattering and charge transport experiments can give valuable information about novel phases of matter. The emphasis will be on the fascinating properties of the cuprate high-temperature superconductors that were discovered by J. G. Bednorz and K. A. Müller (1987 Physics Nobel Prize), and in particular on the enigmatic “pseudogap” and “strange metal” phases from which the superconductivity evolves upon cooling. Our recent neutron scattering and charge transport experiments shed new light on the properties of these two phases.
