Clams Discovered to Have Contagious Cancer

Clams Discovered to Have Contagious Cancer

It has long been thought that cancer is not contagious. Recent discoveries, however, have suggested otherwise. A venereal disease in dogs as well as facial tumors in Tasmanian devils have previously been identified as transmittable cancers, and this week, researchers at Columbia University found that a third cancer belonged to this group: hemic neoplasia. This cancer was first noticed in […]

Digestive Microbes Linked to Serotonin Production

Digestive Microbes Linked to Serotonin Production

A team of researchers from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has recently discovered a connection between levels of gut microbes and levels of serotonin in mice. In addition to providing a means of communication between neurons in the brain, serotonin has other roles in the human body, especially in […]

How Sustainable is Bioenergy?

How Sustainable is Bioenergy?

On Monday, April 20, Felix Creutzig from Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change spoke about “Sustainability at the Nexus of Land Use and Energy.” The presentation focused on his work concerning bioenergy, sustainability, and environmental policy.     Although Creutzig’s current work focuses in determining the sustainability of […]

Link between Facebook Use and Depressive Symptoms

Link between Facebook Use and Depressive Symptoms

A recent paper published in the Journal of Social & Clinical Psychology suggests that time spent on Facebook may be linked to depressive symptom. The researchers who conducted the study found that this relationship was mediated by social comparisons, our natural inclination to compare ourselves to others when learning about […]

Developments in Quantum Temperature

Developments in Quantum Temperature

It is well known that, on the smallest scales, the laws of physics become very non-intuitive. Particles can tunnel through otherwise impenetrable barriers. They have no position or momentum, in the classical sense. In fact, particles can be described as waves, which exist across a region in space and can […]

Pain Medication May Also Affect Emotions

Pain Medication May Also Affect Emotions

Researchers at the Ohio State University studying the widespread pain reliever acetaminophen recently discovered that the drug can blunt strong emotions, a previously unknown side effect. In their study, the researchers found that participants who took acetaminophen reported less strong reactions when viewing both pleasant and disturbing photographs compared to […]

Smart Grids in the Energy Sector

Smart Grids in the Energy Sector

How does one predict the rises and falls of unpredictable energy consumption? Statisticians dig through data and make predictions based on the past, but engineers take a different approach. By combining electrical and computer engineering, it is possible to develop predictive algorithms based on computing and economics. Associate Professor Fangxing […]
