Young adults distressed by labels of narcissism, entitlement

Young adults both believe and react negatively to messages that members of their age group are more entitled and narcissistic than other living generations, suggests new research.


Do you trust politicians? Depends on how you define trust

For decades, political scientists have measured the public's trust in the federal government consistently, using measures that are largely unchanged since the 1960s -- despite the momentous changes happening over the last five decades in the United States. The new research tested a definition of trust and revealed three assessments that lead to one trusting in the government.


Memories are strengthened via brainwaves produced during sleep, new study shows

New research brings us closer to understanding how learned information turns into reliable memories during sleep.


Coherent? Voice disorders significantly affect listeners, too



Posted: 15 May 2019 10:17 AM PDT


Researchers conducted a study to see if there are differences in speech intelligibility (a listener's ability to recover a speaker's message) in healthy voices compared to those who have voice disorders like hoarseness. They also wanted to know if using listener strategies such as paying close attention to the words or using other words to try to figure out the message would increase speech intelligibility.


Ragweed compounds could protect nerve cells from Alzheimer's

As spring arrives in the northern hemisphere, many people are cursing ragweed, a primary culprit in seasonal allergies. But scientists might have discovered a promising new use for some substances produced by the pesky weed. Researchers have identified and characterized ragweed compounds that could help nerve cells survive in the presence of Alzheimer's disease (AD) peptides.


Legal marijuana reduces chronic pain, but increases injuries and car accidents



Posted: 15 May 2019 08:03 AM PDT


The legalization of recreational marijuana is associated with an increase in its abuse, injury due to overdoses, and car accidents, but does not significantly change health care use overall, according to a new study.


Feeling healthy: A good start, but not always a good indicator of heart disease risk

Most people feel they have a general idea of how healthy they are based on their diet and exercise regimen and how often they get sick. But a new study adds to evidence that how healthy people think they are isn't always an accurate indicator of their risk for cardiovascular disease.


Women's gut microbiomes appear to mature earlier than men's

A recent study found that the age and sex of an individual strongly influences the bacterial diversity of the gut microbiome.


Older adults expect to lose brain power, but most don't ask doctors how to prevent dementia

Many Americans in their 50s and early 60s are worried about declining brain health, especially if they have loved ones with memory loss and dementia, a new national poll finds. But while the majority of those polled say they take supplements or do puzzles in an effort to stave off brain decline, very few of them have talked with their doctors about evidence-based ways to prevent memory loss.
