Researchers Identify Potential Target to Improve Sleep in Children

Arizona State University (ASU)

Between 25 and 30% of children under the age of 18 in the United States do not get enough sleep. Sleep deprivation in children can lead to behavioral and mood problems that can negatively affect school performance, social interactions and physical wellbeing. Children from lower-middle-class families or families who live at or near the poverty line get less sleep and lower quality sleep than their peers from families with more income and resources. In a study that will be published in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence, researchers in the Arizona State University Department of Psychology have uncovered a potential mechanism that explains why children living in lower socioeconomic situations experience less and poorer sleep than their wealthier counterparts. The study is currently available online.

Arizona State University (ASU)

The conventional paradigm for understanding SCC is the simultaneous presence of a sufficient level of tensile stress, a corrosive environment and a susceptible material. New research illustrates that SCC can occur if the corrosion happens first and the material is subsequently subjected to stress.

More Than a Label: Shelter Dog Genotyping Reveals Inaccuracy of Breed Assignments

Arizona State University (ASU)

Arizona State University scientists used genetic testing in over 900 shelter dogs to identify breed heritage in the largest study of its kind. The researchers found widespread genetic diversity: 125 breeds in the sample and an average of three breed matches per dog. The accuracy of shelter staff in identifying more than one breed in the dog’s heritage based just on physical appearance was only 10%. How breed labels can impact shelter dogs is discussed.

Resource Scarcity Increases Support for Death Penalty

Arizona State University (ASU)

ASU psychologists and legal scholars have identified a novel influence for death penalty beliefs: the availability of resources in the environment.

A series of four experiments using archival and experimental methods consistently found actual and perceived resource availability in the environment predicted the endorsement of the death penalty.
