Changing public health messaging to focus on the impact of our actions -- for example the potentially harmful impact of infecting a colleague with a cold, rather than whether we will infect them if we go into work in the first place -- could have significant implications for how we deal with global threats, according to a new study from City University of London, the Oxford Martin School (University of Oxford), and Yale University.
The posterior parietal cortex plays a crucial role in allowing the mammalian brain to turn visual information (such as a green traffic light), into motion (such as stepping on the gas), researchers at MIT's Picower Institute found in a new study.
A new study finds surgeon attitudes about genetic testing have a big impact on whether women receive testing after a breast cancer diagnosis.
Research from the University of Pennsylvania shows that using minimally invasive electrical currents on the brain's prefrontal cortex can reduce the intention to carry out physical and sexual assault. It's a new and promising approach to interventions around violence.
When educators and coaches make kids feel like they matter, it reduces delinquency and destructive behavior, according to a study led by a University of Kansas professor.
As demonstrated in a series of new studies, Harvard researchers show that as the prevalence of a problem is reduced, humans are naturally inclined to redefine the problem itself.

Police officers who endorse an empathetic approach to criminal justice do not perform as well when they sense they are underappreciated, according to new research from The University of Texas at Austin.
Refraining from bad behavior toward a significant other during stressful life events is more important than showing positive behavior, according to a Baylor University study.
