New study identifies the most effective mental strategies that people use to get through doing things they dislike – thinking about the positive consequences of getting to the end; monitoring one’s goal progress; thinking that the end is near; and emotion regulation (trying to stay in a good mood).

Scientists have managed to grow perfect human blood vessels as organoids in a petri dish for the first time, outlined in a new study published in Nature, which advances research of vascular diseases like diabetes, identifying a key pathway to potentially prevent changes to blood vessels.

Chemotherapy + stem cell transplantation has nearly completely halted MS disease progression in a randomized trial. The trial randomized 110 patients to either stem cell transplant or standard, disease modifying therapy. Only 3 patients on transplant had disease progression vs. 34 on SOC.

New study examines a model of how anger is perpetuated in relationships. Being mistreated by a romantic partner evokes anger, that motivates reciprocation, resulting in a cycle of rage. This may be broken but requires at least one person to refuse to participate in the cycle of destructive behavior.

Immediate fossil fuel phaseout could arrest climate change: New study found that if all fossil fuel infrastructure (power plants, factories, vehicles, ships and planes) from now on are replaced by zero-carbon alternatives at the end of their useful lives, there is a 64% chance of staying under 1.5C.

Fine-tuned gel particles enable smart windows for energy efficiency. Polymeric gel particles have been used to make windows that highly effectively allow or block heat-generating wavelengths of sunlight in response to temperature. Such windows might increase the energy efficiency of buildings.

At a large Midwestern high school, almost 40 percent of low-income biology students were poised to fail the course. Instead, thanks to simple measures aimed at reducing test anxiety, that failure rate was halved.
