Science news articles cover neuroscience, neurology, psychology, AI, mental health, robotics, neurotechnology and cognitive sciences.

A new study reveals that children with reliable parental support are more inclined to take risks and explore. Analyzing decisions made by over 150 children aged 10 to 13 in game-based scenarios, the study found that children who perceived their parents as unpredictable were less likely to engage in exploratory risks.
Researchers explore the lasting impact of COVID-19 on language. They analyze a range of sources, including scientific articles, news, social media, and advertising, using both computer-assisted methods and crowd-sourced examples.

Neurology news articles cover neurology, brain cancer, traumatic brain injuries, neurosurgery, neuroanatomy, brain research and neurological disorders.

Researchers discovered that the neuropsychiatric symptoms in Alzheimer’s disease, such as irritability, agitation, and depression, primarily stem from brain inflammation rather than amyloid and tau proteins. This study involved 109 elderly individuals and found a strong correlation between neuroinflammation and these challenging symptoms.
A new study reveals that personalized health and lifestyle changes can significantly delay or prevent memory loss in older adults at high risk of Alzheimer's. The study, involving 172 participants, showed that those receiving personalized coaching to manage risk factors like uncontrolled diabetes and physical inactivity had a 74% cognitive improvement compared to the control group.

AI news articles cover science articles about artificial intelligence including ChatGPT, Bard, Dalle, neural networks, machine learning, LLMs, AGI and other AI related topics.

A research group using AI and mathematical modeling has discovered that human behavioral responses to COVID-19, like lockdowns and isolation, influence the evolution of the virus. Their study found that SARS-CoV-2 variants became more transmissible early in infection due to these human interventions.
Researchers uncovered how partisan media sentiment influences public perception of artificial intelligence (AI). They analyzed over 7,500 articles from both liberal and conservative media, finding that liberal-leaning media exhibit more negative sentiment towards AI than conservative media.
A new study argues that the perception of AI intelligence is marred by linguistic confusion. While AI, such as ChatGPT, generates impressive text, it lacks true understanding and consciousness.

Science research articles cover psychology, depression, mental health, schizophrenia, mental disorders, happiness, stress, PTSD, autism, psychiatry and therapy.

A comprehensive study analyzing data from two million individuals across 168 countries, challenges the widely held belief about the negative psychological impact of internet technologies. Researchers found only small and inconsistent changes in global well-being and mental health over the last two decades, despite extensive internet adoption.
Researchers discovered that chronic stress induces depression-like behaviors in fruit flies, Drosophila melanogaster, affecting their motivation and activity. The study found that Ayurvedic medicinal plants, particularly Withania somnifera (ashwagandha) and Centella asiatica, can improve the flies' resilience to chronic stress when used prophylactically.

A new study reveals insights into how general anesthesia affects consciousness and sensory perception. Using animal models, researchers found that while propofol anesthesia allows sensory information to reach the brain, it disrupts the spread of signals across the cortex.
Researchers discovered that the way we perceive and describe colors is influenced by the languages we speak. In a study with the Tsimane’ society from the Bolivian Amazon, bilingual individuals who learned Spanish as a second language began distinguishing colors differently than monolingual Tsimane’ speakers.
