Scientists developed a wireless patch that sticks to the scalp and generates electric pulses by harnessing energy from random body movements, which stimulated faster hair re-growth in shaved rats and hairless mice, and may reverse balding in men when fitted inside a specially designed baseball cap.

Flu vaccination in the U.S. substantially reduces mortality and lost work hours. A one-percent increase in the vaccination rate results in 800 fewer deaths per year approximately and 14.5 million fewer work hours lost due to illness annually.

Simply telling people (n=7,250) they would receive a tax rebate increased their support for a carbon tax of $50-$70 per metric ton of carbon. This suggests that “revenue recycling” is the way to make carbon taxes popular.

A microbe that lives in the soil of New Jersey’s wetlands has the unique ability to sever the carbon-fluorine bond in PFAS, a class of long-lived chemicals that disrupt hormones and increase cancer risk. Scientists suspect this microbe could help clean up contaminated environments.

Children in kindergartens that emphasized play, improving self-regulation, working together and helping one another, and hands-on learning performed better academically, showed less bullying and more kindness than students in more traditional classes, and teacher enthusiasm for teaching soared.

Scientists found two short peptides, or strings of amino acids, that when injected into mice with Alzheimer’s disease daily for five weeks, significantly improved the mice’s memory. The treatment also reduced some of the harmful physical changes in the brain that are associated with the disease.

Not all instances of gender inequality are equally concerning. An emphasis on women’s underrepresentation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math roles (STEM) has not been matched by a similar concern about men’s underrepresentation in Healthcare, Early Education, and Domestic roles (HEED).

In marriage, conflict is inevitable. Happy couples tend to take a solution-oriented approach to conflict, and rarely chose to argue about issues that are more difficult to resolve. A new study suggests that this strategic decision may be one of the keys to their marital success.
