A new mathematical analysis suggests that migration can generate patterns in the spatial distribution of individuals that promote cooperation and allow populations to thrive, in spite of the threat of exploitation. Felix Funk and Christoph Hauert of the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, present these findings in PLOS Computational Biology.
American Journal of Roentgenology 'Original Research' article standardizes the definition of complete imaging history and engineers systems to include supportive prompts in the order entry interface with a single keystroke -- sustainably improving the quality of all imaging histories.
While other animals tend to gain status through aggression, humans are typically averse to allowing such dominant individuals to achieve high status. Instead, those highest in social status are often those who demonstrate the most value to others. Researchers have now shown that cooperation between individuals can be driven by opportunities to acquire status over others and that decisions with whom to cooperate are often based on who has more or less status.
Kobe University and Alfresa Pharma Corporation develop a novel medical device with non-woven fabric style made of bioabsorbable material.
A combination of heart cells derived from human stem cells could be the answer to developing a desperately-needed treatment for heart failure, according to new research part-funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and published in Nature Biotechnology.
To explore the way to go and share best practices on research integrity, about 700 researchers, teachers, leaders of funding agencies, government officials, journal editors etc. from 60 countries gathered at the 6th World Conference on Research Integrity held at the University of Hong Kong between June 2 and 5, 2019. Entitled New Challenges for Research Integrity, the conference heard enriching views on improving the current system for funding research and rewarding faculty.
Wolves are charismatic, conspicuous, and easy to single out as the top predator affecting populations of elk, deer, and other prey animals. However, a new study has found that the secretive cougar is actually the main predator influencing the movement of elk across the winter range of northern Yellowstone National Park.
A large majority of Iowans (74 percent) say it is important for the presidential candidates to talk about how science and scientific research will affect their policymaking decisions, but only 22 percent recall them discussing science issues during the past two months.
Epigenetic regulation -- modification of gene expression from the 'outside' -- is an important part of the overall genetic processes within a cell. A group of scientists from Tokyo University of Science now reveals a novel epigenetic regulation mechanism that is involved in DNA damage repair in plants, thereby suggesting a possibility of reinforcing global food security.
The production revolution envisioned by 3D printing visionaries is only a few steps away, when we will be able to print objects with whatever shape and properties we need. This summer at the 2019 SIGGRAPH conference we will move three steps closer, when the scientists from Inria Nancy-Grand Est present their new findings.
