Psychologists solve mystery of songbird learning

A male zebra finch watches a video monitor displaying a female finch performing an arousal behavior called a 'fluff-up.' Credit: Michael Goldstein Scientists rely on animal models to gain insight into how humans learn language, but it turns out that one of their favorite models, the zebra finch, has been entirely misunderstood. New research reveals…

Climate of North American cities will shift hundreds of miles in one generation

Under current high emissions the average urban dweller is going to have to drive more than 500 miles to the south to find a climate similar to their home city by 2080. Credit: Matthew Fitzpatrick/University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science In one generation, the climate experienced in many North American cities is projected to…

Possibility of recent underground volcanism on Mars

This is the Martian South Pole. A new study in Geophysical Research Letters argues there needs to be an underground source of heat for liquid water to exist underneath the polar ice cap. Credit: NASA A study published last year in the journal Science suggested liquid water is present beneath the south polar ice cap…

Is our personality affected by the way we look? (Or the way we think...

This is a 3D body scan of a test subject. Credit: Tobias Kordsmeyer To what extent is our personality an adaptation to our appearance or even our physique? A team of scien-tists at the University of Göttingen has investigated this question. Their results: it depends -- on our gender and on which behaviour. The study…

Fight or flight: Serotonin neurons prompt brain to make the right call

Serotonin neurons as seen from under a confocal laser scanning microscope, photographed by doctoral candidate Changwoo Seo and laboratory technician Andrew Recknagel. Credit: Image courtesy of Warden Laboratory Known for its role in relieving depression, the neurochemical serotonin may also help the brain execute instantaneous, appropriate behaviors in emergency situations, according to a new Cornell…

In the squirrel world, prime real estate is determined by previous owner, study reveals

This is a Red Squirrel's midden with news cones. Credit: Kluane Red Squirrel Project A young squirrel lucky enough to take over territory from an adult male squirrel is like a teenager falling into a big inheritance, according to a new University of Guelph study. Researchers found male squirrels store more food than females, and…

Research details sticky situations at the nanoscale

At very small scales, adhesive forces are dominant. In a finding that could be useful in nanoscale engineering, new research shows how minute amounts of surface roughness can influence stickiness. Credit: Kesari Lab / Brown University Brown University researchers have made a discovery about the way things stick together at tiny scales that could be…

Green water-purification system works without heavy metals or corrosive chemicals

This photo shows a concentrator where samples were placed. Credit: Dan Wang Scientists at the Institute of Process Engineering (IPE) at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing and Yangzhou University (YZU) in Jiangsu have developed an effective and energy-efficient technique for purifying water by using graphitic carbon nitride sheets. Their prototype, presented February 7…

Effect of breastfeeding versus pumping on human milk microbiome

This graphical abstract shows how human milk microbiota has a strong association with feeding method (i.e., pumped versus directly at the breast). Credit: Moossavi et al./Cell Host & Microbe A large-scale analysis in humans reveals that indirect breastfeeding using pumped milk is associated with the depletion of oral bacteria and a higher abundance of potential…

Turning desalination waste into a useful resource

Illustration depicts the potential of the suggested process. Brine, which could be obtained from the waste stream of reverse osmosis (RO) desalination plants, or from industrial plants or salt mining operations, can be processed to yield useful chemicals such as sodium hydroxide (NaOH) or hydrochloric acid (HCl).

In reality, the slower you are, the more such measures improve your finish times, suggests new University of Colorado…
