New research has revealed how people's intelligence, rather than their personality traits, leads to success. Researchers at the Universities of Bristol, Minnesota and Heidelberg devised a series of games to find out which factors lead...Show More Summary
Researchers at RIT have found a more efficient fabricating process to produce semiconductors used in today's electronic devices. They also confirmed that materials other than silicon can be used successfully in the development process that could increase performance of electronic devices. Show More Summary
Striking evidence means the “Toba Catastrophe Theory” is headed for the dustbin.
For the Great Plains, natural variability will dominate until late this century.
In a new study of one of the most common genetic causes of autism, neuroscientists at MIT's Picower Institute for Learning and Memory have identified a specific molecular mechanism that appears to undermine the ability of neurons in affected mice to properly incorporate changes driven by experience.

For decades, the human story was one told through signs of modernity—art, tools, burials—found only after Homo sapiens left Africa. Recent discoveries pushing back the date of departure are helping to change that narrative, as are three new studies in Science. Together, they describe the earliest stone tools...
Triceratops to potential mate: "Hey baby, check out my frill and big horns...you know what they say, big horns, big everything, awwwww yeahhhhh..." Apparently, that's how hook-ups went down in the Mesozoic, at least for the famously horned and frilled ceratopsians. Show More Summary
After years of intrigue, researchers are celebrating "a major step forward" for the male birth control pill. A month-long clinical trial shows a once-daily male pill is safe and effective at suppressing the hormones needed for sperm production, and has no negative effect on sex drive, according to researchers who...
The craft brew revolution is fueled by an earnest pursuit of hoppiness. Many craft beer enthusiasts are drawn to the potent, bitter, aromatic flavors of a primo India Pale Ale (IPA), and brewers take pride in delivering a roundhouse kick to mouth in every bottle. Show More Summary
Finally, some answers.
A whole new world to explore.
It's not the Earth's axis changing its tilt.
This could end one of the most common forms of blindness.
A good time to clean up your data.
(Rochester Institute of Technology) Researchers at RIT have found a more efficient fabricating process to produce semiconductors used in today's electronic devices. They also confirmed that materials other than silicon can be used successfully in the development process that could increase performance of electronic devices.
(Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute) Simple statements of praise may have a big effect on the amount of exercise young adults with autism complete, according to preliminary research from the UNC Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute (FPG). Technology may play a key role in delivering that praise.
The Sullivan brothers, five sailors renowned during WWII, died aboard the ship when it was struck by an enemy torpedo.
(InSilico Medicine, Inc.) Insilico Medicine announces the launch of Insilico Taiwan, a subsidiary focusing on the development and validation of generative adversarial networks(GANs) and reinforcement learning for medicinal chemistry applications.
As galaxies collide and new stars are born, spectacular shapes form in the universe—and many of them resemble Earthly creatures.
(Molecular Biology and Evolution (Oxford University Press)) The platypus is the ultimate evolutionary mashup of birds, reptiles and mammals. The iconic, egg-laying, venom producing, duck-billed platypus first had its genome sequenced...Show More Summary
