Johns Hopkins Children’s Center Study Shows More Than Just Social Media Use May Be Causing Depression in Young Adults
Johns Hopkins Medicine

Over the past few decades, there has been a significant increase in the prevalence of depression in adolescents and young adults — and a simultaneous uptick in the inclusion of technology and social media in everyday life. However, it is unclear how exactly social media use and depression are associated and relate to other behaviors, such as physical activity, green space exposure, cannabis use and eveningness (the tendency to stay up late).

No means no when it comes to sex. But what happens when a woman makes a more passive response to a sexual advance? According to new research from Binghamton University, State University of New York, men differ in how they interpret these types of responses, and men who display hostile masculinity, known commonly as “toxic masculinity,” tend to act on them regardless of whether or not they think it’s consensual.

A leap forward in gut health research: multi-electrode integration in gut-on-chip systems
Chinese Academy of Sciences

A recent study has marked a significant advancement in gut health research. Scientists have successfully integrated multiple flexible electrodes into the Human Microbial Crosstalk (HuMiX) gut-on-a-chip system. This innovation allows for the real-time detection of barrier formation with unprecedented spatial resolution, offering a new avenue for studying the effects of probiotics, dietary compounds, and drugs on gut barrier integrity.

Living fast, dying young: Bar-Ilan University study reveals impact of habitat disturbance on social organization of Arabian babblers
Bar-Ilan University

Habitat change, fragmentation, and reduction caused by human activity are significant threats to the natural environment, leading to a decline in biodiversity and increased species extinction. Among the most vulnerable are social animals, whose intricate social structures and cooperative breeding behaviors are closely linked to their habitats. A new study led by Prof. Lee Koren, from the Goodman Faculty of Life Sciences at Bar-Ilan University, explores the profound effects of habitat disturbance on the Arabian babbler, a social bird species known for its cooperative breeding.
