New Theory Addresses How Life on Earth Arose From the Primordial Muck

Scientists publish experimental evidence that life on Earth originated in an intimate partnership between the nucleic acids and small proteins. Their “peptide-RNA” hypothesis contradicts the widely held hypothesis that life originated from nucleic acids and only later evolved to include proteins.

Study: Autism Treatments May Restore Brain Connections

Scientists have identified a pair of treatments that may restore brain function to autism patients who lack a gene critical to maintaining connections between neurons, according to a study from the Peter O’Donnell Jr. Brain Institute at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

New Data on Gender Inequality in Sciences Salaries

There is a difference between male and female physics faculty salaries and the culture of physics is partly to blame, according to an article that is available for free this month from Physics Today. The article, "Salaries for female physics faculty trail those for male colleagues," identifies key factors influencing the gender pay gap and offers potential solutions that include changes in the culture in physics departments.

Umbilical Cord Blood Improves Motor Skills in Some Children With Cerebral Palsy

Drinking During Adolescence and Young Adulthood: Taboo, Tolerated, and Treasured

The etiology (i.e., underlying causes) of a behavior, such as alcohol drinking, can change during adolescence and young adulthood. Prior alcohol research has shown that, in general: shared/common environment influences are strongest in early adolescence, declining in strength until young adulthood; unique environmental influences are moderate, but stable, during adolescence and young adulthood; and genetic influences are weakest during early adolescence, steadily increasing in strength until young adulthood. This study examined the relations between genetic and environmental etiologies of alcohol use and the influence of peer use, parental autonomy granting, and maternal closeness on this behavior.
