Some scientists share better than others
East Lansing MI (SPX) Oct 24, 2014
Some scientists share better than others. While astronomers and geneticists embrace the concept, the culture of ecology still has a ways to go. Research by Michigan State University, published in the current issue of Bioscience, explores the paradox that although ecologists share findings via scientific journals, they do not share the data on which the studies are built, said Patricia Soranno, MSU fisheries and wildlife professor and co-author of the paper. "One reason for not sharing data i ... read more

Scientists are closer to understanding human height
Scientists believe they now have a better understanding of what determines height in humans. An international group of researchers came together and studied a group of over 250,000 people from different regions of the world. They located over 400 genome regions that appear to be related to determining height, and they found almost 700 genetic variants. ... more

New study explains the brain of multitaskers
Americans are becoming more and more comfortable with multitasking, and a new study from the University of Sussex might have an explanation for its relation to the brain. Kep Kee Loh and fellow researchers studied 75 adults and asked them how much they multitask by engaging in more than one form of media at a time. Checking your Facebook while also watching a TV show would be the kind of multitasking they're looking for. Participants were put in an MRI to see how their brains differed. Those who answered positively to heavy media multitasking were shown to have less anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) grey matter in their brains. ... more
