Why Conservatives Have Better Self-Control
Conservatives may have more self-control than liberals because they are strong believers in free will. People who support free will believe they are responsible for their outcomes and so believe they can control their behavior.

Men with 'low testosterone' have higher rates of depression
Researchers at the George Washington University (GW), led by Michael S. Irwig, M.D., found that men referred for tertiary care for borderline testosterone levels had much higher rates of depression and depressive symptoms than those of the general population.

Seeing is believing: How brains make sense of the visual world
If your eyes deceive you, blame your brain. Many optical illusions work because what we see clashes with what we expect to see.

Lifelong learning is made possible by recycling of histones, study says
Neurons are a limited commodity; each of us goes through life with essentially the same set we had at birth. But these cells, whose electrical signals drive our thoughts, perceptions, and actions, are anything but static. They change and adapt in response to experience throughout our lifetimes, a process better known as learning.

Sleep deprivation could reduce intrusive memories of traumatic scenes
A good night's sleep has long been recommended to those who have experienced a traumatic event. But a new study provides preliminary experimental work suggesting it could actually be the wrong thing to do.

Clues to inner atomic life from subtle light-emission shifts
Hyperfine structure of light absorption by short-lived cadmium atom isotopes reveals characteristics of the nucleus that matter for high precision detection methods. Atoms absorb and emit light of various wavelengths. Physicists have long known that there are some tiny changes, or shifts, in the light that gets absorbed or emitted, due to the properties of the atomic nucleus. Now, a team of scientists has elucidated the so-called hyperfine structure of cadmium atoms. Relying on a method called laser spectroscopy, they have measured variations in the energy transition within cadmium atom - Cd in the periodic table. They studied a chain of isotopes with an odd number of neutrons ranging from 59 in 107Cd to 75 in 123Cd. From these high-precision measurements, they were able to identify the physical cause of the shift within the nucleus.

Improving insulation materials, down to wetting crossed fibers
Scientists model the manner in which a liquid wets fibers, gaining useful insights for improving glass wool properties. Sandcastles are a prime example of how adding a small amount of liquid to a granular material changes its characteristics. But understanding the effect of a liquid wetting randomly oriented fibers in a fibrous medium remains a mystery.
