Weakness is good...when controlling light
A new study reports that researchers have demonstrated a way to control light with light using one third -- in some cases, even less -- of the energy typically required. The advancement, coupled with other developments, could ultimately lead to more powerful, energy-efficient computer chips and other optics-based technologies. (2016-10-31)

Reading the right sexual cues
Both college men and women focus primarily on a photographed woman's nonverbal emotional cues when making snap decisions about whether she is expressing sexual interest at a particular moment in time.

Meaning of brain scans for 'pain' called into question
Patterns of brain activity thought to show pain responses have been called into question after researchers saw such patterns in rare patients born without a sense of pain. The study was designed to test the 'pain matrix,' a pattern of brain activity that is often considered a marker for pain. The association is so pervasive that the 'pain matrix' has been used in research to suggest that social rejection or mental effort can cause 'pain.' (2016-04-25)

Designing gene therapy
Scientists in the Barabas group at EMBL have increased the efficiency of a genome-engineering tool called Sleeping Beauty, which is showing promise in clinical trials for leukemia and lymphoma immunotherapies. They made the improvement by determining the 3-D structure of the molecule's active domain, and using that information to design better versions of this tool. In a study published in Nature Communications, they reveal structural information that they hope will ultimately result in better patient outcomes. (2016-03-31)

Eating disorder prevention program reduces brain reward region response to supermodels
At baseline, when young women at risk for eating disorders viewed images of supermodels while undergoing fMRI, a reward valuation region of their brains was activated. After the intervention, this reward valuation was more activated by exposure to images of healthy, normal weight women than by exposure to thin models. Participants in the control condition did not show this change. (2015-12-07)

Psychologists pinpoint change in weight required to look healthier and more attractive
A good poker face might prevent others knowing what cards you're holding, but it won't prevent them from knowing if you've gained or lost weight. That's because our faces reveal many things, including whether our weight has changed. Now, researchers at the University of Toronto have determined the amount of weight people need to gain or lose before others notice or find them more attractive. (2015-12-03)

Global warming won't stop the 'green cancer' from spreading
With its enormous green and purple leaves, the South American miconia tree is invading botanic gardens all around the world on account of its beauty. This plant, however, is called the 'green cancer' for its ability to infest new territories. A new study that has identified 91 countries which are at risk for being colonized by this plant warns that the plant's expansion in infested areas will not be negatively affected by a rise in temperatures.

Scientists measure the 'beauty' of coral reefs
Almost every person has an appreciation for natural environments. In addition, most people find healthy or pristine locations with high biodiversity more beautiful and aesthetically pleasing than environmentally degraded locations. In a study which computed 'aesthetics' as it relates to coral reefs, a multidisciplinary group of researchers have shown that an objective computational analysis of photographic images can be used to assess the health of a coral reef.
