Science of romantic relationships includes gene factor?

 "Tests on 579 Han Chinese students revealed that half of those who inherited two copies of the C variant – one from each parent – were in relationships. But students who carried one or two copies of the G variant had only a 40 percent chance of being in a relationship. The effect was small, but statistically significant."

Startup Chile: Taking the leap in South America’s top incubator

Requiem for a Startup Unicorn

Not everyone has to be running a unicorn to build a great company, recruit a great team, or to raise capital. It’s hard to ignore the pundits, but just like in politics or sports, sometimes it’s the best thing one can do for their sanity. Focus on your customers, co-workers, and your venture capital strategy and there’s a good chance you can build a life-altering business that’s rewarding personally and financially.

The researchers found that elderly men were less likely to experience changes in heart function during heavy smog days if they ate foods loaded with flavonoids, an antioxidant found in plants.

Baccarelli added that because the study is observational, it does not prove any cause-and-effect link between flavonoids and heart rate variability. Clinical trials will be required before any dietary changes can be recommended.

How People’s Political Passions Distort Their Sense of Reality

Though people might disagree on how to solve a problem, they can at least agree that the problem exists. Or can they? A new study finds that deeply held beliefs can undermine rationality: When confronted with solutions that challenge deeply held values, people may be inclined to disbelieve the problem.

Psychologists tested hundreds of American adults on their beliefs about climate change and violent crime after proposing solutions involving, respectively, government regulations and gun ownership. Spooked by legally mandated fossil fuel restrictions, conservatives were less likely to accept the best scientific estimates on global temperature changes. Conversely, after being told that looser gun control laws reduced violent crime, liberals were less likely to believe that crime is a problem.

How the hummingbird achieves its aerobatic feats

Although hummingbirds are much larger and stir up the air more violently as they move, the way that they fly is more closely related to flying insects than it is to other birds. Now, the most detailed, three-dimensional aerodynamic simulation of hummingbird flight conducted to date has definitively demonstrated that the hummingbird achieves its nimble aerobatic abilities through a unique set of aerodynamic forces that are more closely aligned to those found in flying insects than to other birds.

This Robot Could Make Creating New Life Forms As Easy As Coding An App

Anyone who has ever worked in a biology lab or hung out in one knows the work can be tedious and repetitive. While the science itself is complex, the labor involved in experimenting and engineering largely consists of sucking liquid out of one vial with a handheld instrument called a pipette and squirting it back into another one. “Our life science experts spend most of their time doing manual labor,” Canine says. “It’s a huge bottleneck for research.”

Obesity-attributable absenteeism among US workers costs the nation more than $8 billion annually

A study conducted by researchers at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health shows that obesity costs the U.S. $8.65 billion per year as a result of absenteeism in the workplace —more than 9% of all absenteeism costs. The consequences of obesity among the working population go beyond healthcare and create a financial challenge not only for the nation but for individual states as well. Findings are published online in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

System reveals how our brains and bodies change as we fall asleep

"These participants continued to respond to the task, even though current clinical measures would say they were still asleep, which was clearly not the case," says Prerau. "These results suggest that it is the presence of delta and theta power, rather than the lack of alpha power, that is necessary for the cessation of behavior. We may need to carefully re-examine the way sleep onset is defined, since behavior is an essential component of the story that is not measured clinically."

We’ll need to produce 70% more food by 2050 to sustain a world population expected to grow to 10 billion. Yet agriculture startups struggle to get the funding, manufacturing, and test facilities needed to build tech that could boost food production. To fix that disconnect, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt’s Innovation Endeavors and Flextronics Lab IX today launched Farm2050, a collective that will support AgTech startups with capital, design, manufacturing, and test farms to try out their inventions.

Many older brains have plasticity, but in a different place

A widely presumed problem of aging is that the brain becomes less flexible—less plastic—and that learning may therefore become more difficult. A new study led by Brown University researchers contradicts that notion with a finding that plasticity did occur in seniors who learned a task well, but it occurred in a different part of the brain than in younger people.

For the very first time, a brand new scientific study has established a causal relationship between low vitamin D levels and increased mortality. The researchers have not only established a statistical relationship as in previous studies.

-We have conducted a major Danish study, in which we have examined the connection between genes associated with permanent low levels of vitamin D and mortality.

Lifelong learning and the plastic brain

"The faster learners are those who can attend to multiple things at the same time and recruit areas of the brain that are involved in attention," she explained. "Those who are slower at learning try to memorise, as we can see from greater activity in the parts of the brain connected with memory."

"So, in fact, being able to do the sort of multi-tasking required when interacting in busy environments or playing video games – which requires the processing of multiple streams of information – can improve your ability to learn."

Macaques show they are self-aware by playing a computer game

In the new study, Couchman tested if rhesus macaques felt a sense of self-agency when moving a computer cursor with a joystick. He showed that the monkeys understood their own actions and were not simply visually tracking the movements of the cursor onscreen. The results suggest that monkeys, like humans, may have a feeling of “self” that helps them make some decisions.

The fact that monkeys show metacognition and self-agency, even though they don’t pass the mirror self-recognition test, demonstrates there are different ways to tap into self-awareness. Perhaps more importantly, it means rhesus monkeys understand when they cause an action and can even distinguish between different types of actions.

Delivering stem cells into heart muscle may enhance cardiac repair and reverse injury

In the study, Mount Sinai researchers administered stem cell factor (SCF) by gene transfer shortly after inducing heart attacks in pre-clinical models directly into damaged heart tissue to test its regenerative repair response. A novel SCF gene transfer delivery system induced the recruitment and expansion of adult c-Kit positive (cKit+) cardiac stem cells to injury sites that reversed heart attack damage. In addition, the gene therapy improved cardiac function, decreased heart muscle cell death, increased regeneration of heart tissue blood vessels, and reduced the formation of heart tissue scarring.

A medium amount of physical activity can lower the risk of Parkinson's disease

In the study's multivariable-adjusted model, compared with participants who spent less than two hours per week on household and commuting activity, those who spent more than six hours per week on the same types of activities had a 43% lower risk of developing Parkinson's disease. Compared with a low level of total physical activity, a medium level of total physical activity (a mean of 39.1 MET hours per day) was associated with a 45% lower Parkinson's disease risk in males.

Shift in gut bacteria observed in fiber supplement study may offer good news for weight loss

Most Americans don't get the daily recommended amount of fiber in their diet, though research has shown that dietary fiber can cause a shift in the gut toward beneficial bacteria, reducing the risk of colon cancer, type 2 diabetes, and other diseases. A new study from the University of Illinois shows that two specific functional fibers may also have the potential to assist in weight loss when made part of a long-term, daily diet.

The NASA Playground That Takes Virtual Reality To a Whole New Level

We visited the lab where NASA creates incredibly intricate virtual worlds, then blends them with real life and robots in the most advanced virtual reality we've ever seen. Virtual reality that puts Oculus to shame. A freakin' robot that simulates the physics of space. And yes, a jetpack.

The gap between virtual reality and sci-fi is shortening

High Fidelity uses webcam technology to create characters who can interact in virtual worlds. The webcam tracks facial movements, complete with eye contact and expressions, and mirrors that almost instantly in the virtual world so users are seeing how a person is actually reacting to whatever situation — just in an avatar form.

Whatsapp Just Switched on End-to-End Encryption for Hundreds of Millions of Users

On Tuesday, Whatsapp announced that it’s implementing end-to-end encryption, an upgrade to its privacy protections that makes it nearly impossible for anyone to read users’ messages—even the company itself. Whatsapp will integrate the open-source software Textsecure, created by privacy-focused non-profit Open Whisper Systems, which scrambles messages with a cryptographic key that only the user can access and never leaves his or her device. The result is practically uncrackable encryption for hundreds of millions of phones and tablets that have Whatsapp installed—by some measures the world’s largest-ever implementation of this standard of encryption in a messaging service.

Chronic alcohol intake can damage white matter pathways across the entire brain

Chronic misuse of alcohol results in measurable damage to the brain. Chronic drinking may be particularly damaging to the integrity of frontal white matter tracts, which can interfere with cognitive and inhibitory control that, in turn, is important to achieve and maintain abstinence. A new study has used high-resolution structural magnetic resonance (MR) scans to determine the brain's regional vulnerability to chronic alcohol abuse, finding that abstinent alcoholics have reductions in white matter pathways across the entire brain.

 Pathology is often thought of as occurring as an all-or-none phenomenon—you either have brain damage or you don't, similar to a stroke. Alcohol, however, is more like sunburn. Our study shows that the damage occurs as a function of quantity and exposure; themo... more »

 Pathology is often thought of as occurring as an all-or-none phenomenon—you either have brain damage or you don't, similar to a stroke. Alcohol, however, is more like sunburn. Our study shows that the damage occurs as a function of quantity and exposure; the more you drink, the greater the damage to key structures of the brain, such as the inferior frontal gyrus, in particular. This part of the brain mediates inhibitory control and decision-making, so tragically, it appears that some of the areas of the brain that are most effected by alcohol are important for self-control and judgment, the very things needed to recover from misuse of alcohol."___

Does 'brain training' work?

"They show that brain training carried out in a centre can improve cognition in older adults, but commercial products promoted for solo training use at home just don't work. There are better ways to spend your time and money".

Published today in PLOS Medicine, the study shows that engaging older adults computer-based cognitive training (also known as "brain training") can lead to improvements in memory, speed, and visuospatial skills. However, it has no impact on attention or executive functions such as impulse control, planning and problem solving.

Google, Stanford build hybrid neural networks that can explain photos

Two separate groups of researchers at Google and Stanford have merged best-of-breed neural network models and created systems that can accurately explain what’s happening in images.

Although their approaches differ (full papers are available here for Stanford and here for Google), both groups essentially combined deep convolutional neural networks — the type of deep learning models responsible for the huge advances in computer vision accuracy over the past few years — with recurrent neural networks that excel at text analysis and natural language processing. Recurrent neural networks have been responsible for some of the significant improvements in language understanding recently, including the machine translation that powers Microsoft’s Skype Translate and Google’s word2vec libraries.
