(Duke University) Poor sleep is both a risk factor, and a common symptom, of depression. But not everyone who tosses and turns at night becomes depressed. Individuals whose brains are more attuned to rewards may be protected from the negative mental health effects of poor sleep, says a new study by Duke University neuroscientists.

(Duke University Medical Center) Researchers at Duke Cancer Institute have not only untangled an unusual wiring system that cancer cells use for carbohydrate metabolism, but also identified a natural compound that appears to selectively shut down this system in laboratory studies.
Authored by Tori Airaksinen via CampusReform.org, Duke University is recruiting male students for a nine-week program that pledges to “destabilize masculine privilege” and “interrogate masculinity.” The program, known as the Duke University...Show More Summary
(Duke University) A 52-million-year-old ankle fossil suggests our prehuman ancestors were high-flying acrobats. For years, scientists thought the ancestors of today's humans, monkeys, lemurs and apes were relatively slow and deliberate animals, using their grasping hands and feet to creep along small twigs and branches.

OPEC's effects on the world economy extend far beyond prices consumers see at the pump, says new research from Duke University, KU Leuven and UCLA.
(Duke University) OPEC's effects on the world economy extend far beyond the prices consumers see at the pump, says new research from Duke University. By limiting production, the oil industry cartel drove oil production in new, expensive...Show More Summary
(Duke University) Duke University neuroscientists have pinpointed a single type of neuron deep within the brain that serves as a 'master controller' of habits. The team found that habit formation boosts the activity of this influential cell, and that shutting it down is enough to break unhelpful habits in sugar-seeking mice. Show More Summary
(Duke University) Duke scientists recently mapped out the complex molecular circuitry that enables Francisella tularensis, the bacterium that causes tularemia, to become virulent. Tularemia is one of the top six bioterrorism agents, alongside anthrax, botulism, plague, smallpox and viral hemorrhagic fever. Show More Summary
Scientists have known for some time that ethanol can kill cancer cells, but several limitations held it back from becoming a broadly used treatment. A team at Duke University has recently developed a new type of ethanol solution that...Show More Summary

(Duke University) Duke scientists have discovered a network of genes and genetic regulatory elements in the lining of the gut that has been conserved from fishes to humans. Many of these genes are linked to human illnesses, such as inflammatory bowel diseases, diabetes, and obesity. Show More Summary
THAT’S WHY THEY’RE TRYING TO DISTRACT US: Actresses attack Trump, but Hollywood is rife with gender bias. “A new study out of Duke University suggests that for all the Hollywood rhetoric lamenting gender inequality, the film industry is actually among the worst offenders” I think we need Congressional hearings on Hollywood’s rampant culture of discrimination.

(PLOS) The crew of the Civil War submarine HL Hunley likely died from airblast injuries, according to a study published Aug. 23, 2017 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Rachel Lance from Duke University, USA and colleagues.
The H.L. Hunley, the first combat submarine to sink an enemy ship, also instantly killed its own eight-man crew with the powerful explosive torpedo it carried, according to new research from a Duke University Ph.D. in biomedical engineering.
(Duke University) A powerful shockwave from the H.L. Hunley's own weapon killed the crew of the Confederate combat submarine as it sunk a Union ship. This finding comes from a four-year research project that involved repeatedly setting...Show More Summary
Vox asked a bunch of seven experts what they thought about Senator Schatz (D-HI) Medicaid buy-in plan. Five of them made good points. Not sure what this one guy was talking about: David Anderson, Duke University I need to see the details. There are so many different ways this could spin. What does the plan […]
