Flip a switch in a mouse's brains and watch it turn into a killer.
The mystery continues. Astronomers may have to think just a little bit harder to solve the mystery behind Boyajian's star.
While the rest of the world is worrying about the future robot apocalypse, massive space discoveries and innovations in the fight against global warming, others are constantly exploring the innate nature of man.
Gender is such a big issue that it isn't confined to just humans. Researchers from the Yale and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have discovered something extraordinary about frogs: chemicals in road salts used to de-ice paved surfaces alter the sex ratios in nearby frog populations.
Over 300 species of woodpeckers in the world peck wood for a number of reasons. It may be to drill holes for food storage, dig for sap or insects, or simply unearth nest cavities. But woodpeckers do not give a direct hit, but gradual blows, which are not so hard on the creature.
A Yale astrophysicist started a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to support their current research on a star called KIC 8462852.
A new experiment revealed that capuchin monkeys will punish other monkeys who have been given more food. Yale researchers say this is the first evidence suggesting that the psychology of spite extends deeper into our evolutionary history than previously thought.
A new giant tortoise species, named the Eastern Santa Cruz Tortoise, was recently found in Galapagos. Now studies are helping researchers target conservation efforts that will help protect the animals and their natural habitats.
Yale researchers have confirmed that removing natural gas from deep underground using hydraulic fracturing methods does not contaminate drinking water, although they also said that "geology across the country is very different."
In the shallow seas around a place now known for its world-famous creative-writing program at the University of Iowa, an aggressive "sea scorpion," shunted through waves. More on it and its strange Paleozoic Era fellows, here.
Yale researchers discovered more female green frogs are being born in suburban ponds. They recently linked this unbalanced sex ratio to common lawn plants, such as clover.
A team of researchers recently mapped tree populations, finding that about 3.04 trillion trees live on our planet.
Researchers recently discovered an ancient sea predator in a fossil-rich site in Iowa. They named the new species after a Greek warship.
Analysis of some Hubble Space Telescope images has added to research on how cosmic winds prevent stars from being born, and which areas might produce fewer stars after this.
In many parts of the world, education is the #1 factor associated with awareness of climate change. But there are regional distinctions, and countries vary in terms of why people do or don't know the word and phenomenon. More here from a global poll done by researchers from Yale, Columbia, Utah State, Princeton, U-Mass-Amherst, and Academica Sinica in Taiwan.
