Ancient people relied on coastal environments to survive the Last Glacial Maximum

Ancient people relied on coastal environments to survive the Last Glacial Maximum

Humans have a longstanding relationship with the sea that spans nearly 200,000 years. Researchers have long hypothesized that places like coastlines helped people mediate global shifts between glacial and interglacial conditions and the impact that these changes had on local environments and resources needed for their survival. Coastlines were so important to early humans that they may have even provided key routes for the dispersal of people out of Africa and across the world.Two new multidisciplinary studies published in the journals and document persistent human occupation along the...

Bedtime media use linked to less sleep in children who struggle to self-regulate behavior

Bedtime media use linked to less sleep in children who struggle to self-regulate behavior

For some children, screen time before bed translates to less sleep.According to a study from the Arizona State University Department of Psychology, media use in the hour preceding bedtime impacts how kids sleep, especially children who struggle to self-regulate their behavior. Frequent media use before bed in these children predicted later bedtimes and less sleep. The work is now available online in Psychological Science."Among kids who used the same amount of media in the hour before bed, we found differences that were explained by a personality characteristic called effortful control,"...

ASU scientific team finds new, unique mutation in coronavirus study

ASU scientific team finds new, unique mutation in coronavirus study

As the coronavirus pandemic has swept across the U.S., in addition to tracking the number of COVID daily cases, there is a worldwide scientific community engaged in tracking the SARS-CoV-2 virus itself.Efrem Lim leads a team at ASU that looks at how the virus may be spreading, mutating and adapting over time.To trace the trail of the virus worldwide, Lim's team is using a new technology called next-generation sequencing at ASU's Genomics Facility, to rapidly read through all 30,000 chemical letters of the SARS-CoV-2 genetic code, called a genome.Each sequence is deposited into a worldwide...

Class of stellar explosions found to be galactic producers of lithium

Class of stellar explosions found to be galactic producers of lithium

A team of researchers, led by astrophysicist Sumner Starrfield of Arizona State University (ASU), has combined theory with both observations and laboratory studies and determined that a class of stellar explosions, called classical novae, are responsible for most of the lithium in our galaxy and solar system.The results of their study have been recently published in the of the American Astronomical Society."Given the importance of lithium to common uses like heat-resistant glass and ceramics, lithium batteries and lithium-ion batteries, and mood altering chemicals; it is nice to know where...
