Gender Differences in Cognition Is Not Black And White

female-male-brain-differencesMale and female brains are not the same, yet they are not so drastically different. Believing that “male brains” and “female brains” exist is extremely difficult to argue, as there are certain aspects of gender that are influenced socially, rather than innately.

Why High Protein Diet Helps Weight Loss

IMG_0660One of the UK’s leading experts in appetite and energy balance, Dr. Alex Johnstone, has established that it is not clearly understood why protein-rich diets can help with appetite control. At a seminar held at Leeds University, she stated that it is difficult to measure and monitor appetite control for high-protein diets, but is it an effective way to help with weight loss. She also established that the type of protein is less important that the amount – so plant-based proteins can work as a substitute for meat-based protein.

The day after tomorrow… Ten million pound project launched to explore the influence of the Arctic Sea on the future global ecosystem

northern-sea-route-shipping-arctic-e1466684691210The Arctic is the fastest changing and most unexploited environment of the world. Changes in its ecosystem could have drastic and long-lasting effects for the planet. To gain a better understanding of how rising temperatures and air pollution affect this sensitive biological environment, the Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) has launched a ten million Pound project, which tries to look at the implications of the marine biology in the Arctic Ocean.

The project will examine how far air pollution and global warming have caused damages in the arctic region and will seek to discover ways to eventually stop the considerable thinning of sea ice.  Continue reading The day after tomorrow… Ten million pound project launched to explore the influence of the Arctic Sea on the future global ecosystem
