A sewage-loving, foam-making, spaghetti-resembling bacterium

by Rosin Cerate in Rosin Cerate

While working on my doctorate, I lived for a time in an apartment just down the street from a small wastewater treatment facility. I never noticed a bad smell, but if I stayed up too late I'd end up having to fall asleep to the very low pitched rumble of gallons upon gallons of poop water being pumped into and out of large tanks. I tried not to think too hard about this, which tends to be difficult when you're, y'know, trying to fall asleep.Wastewater treatment facilities, or sewage treatment pl........ Read more »

Teams are more creative when their leader is confident in her or his own creativity

by BPS Research Digest in BPS Research Digest

If you’re wondering who to appoint to run a team with creative goals, you might favour a non-creative, reasoning that it’s down to the team members to generate creativity, with the person at the top acting more as driver and dogged coordinator. However, new research in Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes suggests that teams produce more creative outcomes when their managers have greater confidence in their own creativity.Lei Huang of Auburn University and his collaborators s........

by Paul Whiteley in Questioning Answers

"Multiple studies have examined the risk of prenatal antidepressant exposure and risk for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), with inconsistent results."And..."These results suggest that prior reports of association between prenatal antidepressant exposure and neurodevelopmental disease are likely to represent a false-positive finding, which may arise in part through confounding by indication."'These results' refers to the findings reported by Castr........

Overwhelmed and depressed? Well, there may be a connection

by Dr. Jekyll in Lunatic Laboratories

Ever feel overwhelmed when you are depressed, well the good news is it isn't just you, the bad news is it's probably your brain. Regions of the brain that normally work together to process emotion become decoupled in people who experience multiple episodes of depression, neuroscientists report. The findings may help identify which patients will benefit from long term antidepressant treatment to prevent the recurrence of depressive episodes.

WATCH: Persistence Pays Off For Squirrels

by Jenny Ludmer in Rooster's Report

Surely you can expect that the ubiquitous furry creature — a regular at your public park — is a master problem-solver. After all, squirrels must continuously stockpile acorns and occasionally raid bird feeders, all while playing in traffic and dodging hairy little beasts on leashes. But what personality characteristic most drives these exceptional abilities: persistence or flexibility? ... Read more »

Video Tip of the Week: LilBUBome sequencing project

by Mary in OpenHelix

Ok, the phrase “Lil Bub is an American celebrity cat….” is not the way I start a lot of blog posts.

But at animal shelters it’s not so easy. How do you assess the temperament of a dog you’ve only just met?Research by Kate Mornement(Monash University; Pets Behaving Badly) et al investigates this problem. ........ Read more »
