researchers pinpoint how detecting social signals may have affected how we see c




the arrangement of the photoreceptors in our eyes allows us to detect socially significant color variation better than other types of color vision, a team of researchers has found. specifically, our color vision is superior at spotting "social signaling," such as blushing or other facial color chang...



researchers pinpoint how detecting social signals may have affected how we see c




our color vision is superior at spotting 'social signaling,' such as blushing or other facial color changes, when compared to other types of color vision, including the type we design for digital cameras and other photographic devices. in their study, the researchers had 60 human subjects view a ser...



darwin was right: females prefer sex with good listeners




almost 150 years after charles darwin first proposed a little-known prediction from his theory of sexual selection, researchers have found that male moths with larger antennae are better at detecting female signals.in 1871, charles darwin suggested that a female's choice of mate could drive the evol...

paternal age at conception may influence social development in offspring




washington, dc, may 1, 2017 - the age of the father at the time his children are born may influence their social development, suggests a study published in the may 2017 issue of the journal of the american academy of child and adolescent psychiatry (jaacap). analyzing social behaviors of children fr...



detecting walking speed with wireless signals




we've long known that breathing, blood pressure, body temperature and pulse provide an important window into the complexities of human health. but a growing body of research suggests that another vital sign - how fast you walk - could be a better predictor of health issues like cognitive decline, fa...

forensic chemical analysis of wood could stop illegal logging




tackling the problem of illegal logging is particularly challenging as it is often nearly impossible to tell where a piece of wood came from. now, researchers in oregon, usa, have developed a technique that uses the chemical fingerprint of a wood sample to pinpoint its origin to a smaller area than ...



scientists study atmospheric waves radiating out of hurricanes




researchers believe they have found a new way to monitor the intensity and location of hurricanes from hundreds of miles away by detecting atmospheric waves radiating from the centers of these powerful storms.



new material helps record data with light




russian physicists with their colleagues from europe have learned to generate quasiparticles—excitons, which were fully controllable and able to record information at room temperature. these particles act as a transitional form between photons and electrons, so the researchers believe they can be ...
