One type of art can help you see the bigger picture in life – study

Staring into the soothing lines of an image that you can't quite describe is one of the joys of looking at abstract art. It turns out that it's also one of the style's major benefits. New research suggests that abstract art has qualities that can literally change our mindsets, and prompt us to let the minutia of day-to-day life fall away. Over the course of three experiments, scientists at Columbia University found that abstract art tends to evocative of “psychological distance.” Psychological distance is a way to represent how far away events or objects are from ourselves. For instance, a...

Landmark study on 11,196 couples pinpoints what dating apps get so wrong

Landmark study on 11,196 couples pinpoints what dating apps get so wrong

If you have ever labored over how to convey your personality through a dating app bio — or judged someone else's through theirs — research on romance suggests you place your efforts elsewhere.

Cells die in 2 ways — scientists may have found a life-extending workaround

New research suggests that there are two major highways the body usually takes towards that final destination. Its findings also suggest that, with intervention, we may soon open up a longer, scenic route that could extend the journey. Ultimately, aging is just a decline in the function of all the bits and pieces within your body. Protective caps on chromosomes shorten, muscle cells struggle to recover from damage, and DNA gains unwanted...

Scientists Discover a New Biological Clock

Scientists Discover a New Biological Clock

By on Filed Under , & hen you ask someone to say how old they are, they make a calculation — subtracting the year they were born from the present day. But when biologists look to see how old someone’s body actually is, they turn to tiny internal clocks that can illuminate clues about aging and health.Researchers at Harvard have identified a new ribosomal DNA (rDNA) clock, or a biological clock, that reveals accurate insight into how the body ages, and how humans can intervene to slow it down. The work was published Thursday in the journal ., Ph.D., a professor of environmental at Harvard,...
