In a study called 'the largest investigation of the association between playing a musical instrument and brain development,' a child psychiatry team has found that musical training might also help kids focus their attention, control their emotions and diminish their anxiety.
Black truffles sniffed out of the ground by pigs and dogs due to their attractive earthy and cocoa-like aroma contain a "bliss molecule" similar to THC found in cannabis, scientists have found.
The plethora of microbes living in the human gut not only affect people's physical health, they may also influence mental health, according to a growing body of research.
When a couple is expecting a baby, it’s not just the mother that goes through hormonal changes. A new study suggests impending fatherhood coincides with a drop in two hormones in men—testosterone and estradiol—even before the baby is born.
JINAN, China—Ning Wentao sat stoically with four electrodes taped to his stomach as a nurse gradually raised the flow of current to his abdomen.
If you're a woman who's ever been on birth control, you're probably familiar with the torture of trying to find the type that suits your body (and your budget), the nail-biting nights when you've forgotten your pills across town, the mood swings, the libido dips, and a whole host of other side effects. Isn't it about time men shoulder some of this burden?
The nation's "rattiest city" is putting subway rodents on birth control.
Unlike Derek Zoolander, ants don't have any difficulty turning left. New research from the University of Bristol, UK published today in Biology Letters, has found that the majority of rock ants instinctively go left when entering unknown spaces.
Do monkeys know how to give CPR? That's the question circulating on the Internet this week, after a video depicting one monkey apparently saving the life of another after an accident at an Indian train station went viral.
Many genetic mutations in visual pigments, spread over millions of years, were required for humans to evolve from a primitive mammal with a dim, shadowy view of the world into a greater ape able to see all the colors in a rainbow. Now, after more than two decades of painstaking research, scientists have finished a detailed and complete picture of the evolution of human color vision.
Scientists have discovered a fossilized fish so well preserved that the rods and cones in its 300-million-year-old eyeballs are still visible under a scanning electron microscope.
The ancient Mayan civilization collapsed due to a century-long drought, new research suggests.
An earthquake nearly 3,000 years ago may be the culprit in the mysterious disappearance of one of China's ancient civilizations, new research suggests.
The remains of the Temple Period have been excavated and studied since the early 20th century. Yet there are still unanswered questions why these people survived for so long then suddenly vanished. The FRAGSUS project—the largest international archaeological collaboration in Malta and Gozo—is trying to answer why.
More than 250 tremors have been rattling Florence and the Chianti region since Friday, raising concerns over the safety of Michelangelo’s David.
Earth’s “deep biosphere”—the vast, subterranean world that’s home to as many single-celled organisms as our planet’s surface—has a rep for being a stark and lonely place. But a new study finds that deep oil reservoirs, miles beneath the ocean floor, are anything but solitary. Here, bacteria are social critters that have been swapping genetic material back and forth for eons.
Hugging is beneficial in many ways – it improves relationships, reduces stress, and is just plain fun. Well, here’s another plus to add to the list: according to this study, hugging can actually reduce the severity of the common cold. And before you start complaining, no, this isn’t your typical retrospective correlation study. First, the researchers surveyed over 400 adults about their perceived social support and how many hugs they received each day over two weeks. Then, they exposed the subjects to the common cold virus and quarantined them for almost a week while watching for symptoms. They found that people who got more frequent hugs prior to getting sick had a less-severe illness and recovered faster.
