Is sexism the reason why so many heterosexual men are prejudiced towards gay men?

by BPS Research Digest in BPS Research Digest

Gay rights have improved hugely in recent years, but prejudice remains a significant problem. Hate crime data from the US show that gay men in particular are victimised more than other sexual minorities and that their attackers are usually heterosexual men. Moreover, survey data repeatedly find that heterosexual men, on average, are especially prejudiced towards gay men: that is, they typically show more prejudice towards gay men than they do towards lesbians, and they show more prejudice toward........

The experiences of adults with "selective mutism", in their own words

by BPS Research Digest in BPS Research Digest

Some people have a condition that means in most situations, they can't speak. There's nothing wrong with their tongue or vocal chords , and they don't have "aphasia" which is when brain damage affects speech. Yet most of them time, they feel completely unable to speak.In 1934, the term "elective mutism" was coined to describe this condition based on the idea that people fitting the diagnosis were choosing to remain silent. But the favoured term, at least in the UK, has since changed to "selectiv........ Read more »

Trees Make Canadians Feel Healthier

by Elizabeth Preston in Inkfish



What's a tree worth to you? According to a large study in Toronto, trees may increase both how healthy you feel and how healthy you really are. Having some extra foliage on your block could be as good for your health as a pay raise–or an anti-aging machine.

It's a complicated relationship to figure out, because variables that affect how many trees you see each day could also affect your health. The population of a concrete, inner-city apartment complex may have socioeconomic differen........ Read more »

Can you identify racist jurors by asking if they watch local  TV news?

by Doug Keene in The Jury Room

So here’s a voir dire fantasy: When race is salient to your case, strike for cause all potential jurors who say they watch their local television news. For what cause? Because they’re more likely to be racist—at least according to today’s research. Local news coverage tends to focus on crime according to the researchers and […]

Vitamin D and cognitive function

by Paul Whiteley in Questioning Answers

'Correlation is not the same as causation' is an important theme in science, demonstrating how one always needs to be a little guarded about making too much of research linking one variable with another from a purely observational point of view.I similarly apply such a principle to the findings reported by Rolf Jorde and colleagues [1] and the suggestion of "an association between serum 25(OH)D and cognition". Serum 25(OH)D levels by the way, refers to the measurement of calcifediol&nb........ Read more »

Grade-dependent metabolic reprogramming in RCC

by Danielle Stevenson in BHD Research Blog

It is well established that altered metabolism in cancer cells supports survival and growth. Understanding these biological changes could lead to treatments able to specifically target tumourigenic cells. However, despite the known variability in tumour biology, the majority of research is based on the same available cell lines. In renal cell carcinoma (RCC) research these lines frequently carry a VHL mutation: VHL gene alterations are associated with hereditary RCC in VHL syndrome and up to 91%........ Read more »

Quick Look: Computer model shows imaging of Venus surface possible from balloon

by Paul Wren in Venus Dispatches

From the April 2015 edition of Solar System Research:Title:Resolving the surface details on Venus in the balloon- or lander-borne images with a computer modeling methodAbstract:Due to the presence of opaque clouds at high altitudes, it is difficult to survey the surface of Venus in the optical spectral range. At the same time, in the under-cloud layer, there are transparency windows at the wavelengths λ = 1.08, 0.85, and 0.65 μm. At these wavelengths, the gaseous absorption (in the whole atmos........
