Researchers have identified three factors that influence whether a person is likely to seek more information or ignore facts about their health, finances, and personality traits.
Study reveals children who were given nutritionally modified formula as infants performed no better on educational tests of math and English than those who received standard formula.
A painting of a naked woman by Picasso has been hidden under one of his "Blue Period" works for almost a century. With the help of artificial intelligence, researchers have been able to reproduce the lost painting.
A new mathematical equation predicts which individuals will have more happiness and increased brain activity for intrinsic rather than extrinsic rewards. The approach can be used to predict personal preferences based on mood and without asking the individual.
Studying 50 species of primates, researchers found 80% of the species studied performed corpse carrying behaviors as a way to process grief. Following the loss of an infant, some primate mothers carried the body for up to four months following death.
Genetic nurture, the concept that the parent's genes indirectly influence their children by shaping the environment they provide for them, is almost equally important in a child's educational achievement as direct genetic inheritance.
