New species of ancient human discovered in Philippines cave | Science | The Guardian
A new species of ancient human, thought to have been under 4ft tall and adapted to climbing trees, has been discovered in the Philippines, providing a twist in the story of human evolution.

The specimen, named Homo luzonensis, was excavated from Callao cave on Luzon island in the northern Philippines and has been dated to 50,000-67,000 years ago – when our own ancestors and the Neanderthals were spreading across Europe and into Asia.

Keeping Patients Awake During Spine Surgery is Cutting Recovery Time in Half | UC San Francisco
Local Anesthetic Lends Advantages Over Going to Sleep

One of the keys to this new approach to spine surgery is a long-acting, local anesthetic called liposomal bupivacaine, which was recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The anesthetic is injected into muscle in the low back before the incision is made, and provides pain relief for 72 hours.

Scientists discover mechanics of asthmatic bronchial spasm | Yale West Campus
ed by Andre Levchenko, Director of the Yale Systems Biology Institute, the team found new types of positive negative feedback loops can drive the bronchospasm following a trigger such as smoke. Following initial constriction, the airways activate a cellular machinery that detects mechanical stress, initiating the secretion of hormone-like compounds which can induce an additional constriction or relax it.

New evidence of a long-term planetary thermostat to remove excess CO2 | YaleNews
“What our paper details is a pulse of carbonate burial in the aftermath of the PETM,” Penman said. “We analyzed a sediment core in which, before the PETM, there is no carbonate at all, and then in the recovery phase of the event, it has lots of carbonate.”
...
“We believe this process is going to operate in response to carbon emissions related to human activity,” Penman said. “But if the PETM is any guide, it will take tens of thousands of years.”

Researchers explain how LSD changes perception | YaleNews
The new data indicate that LSD triggers a reduction of functional connections between regions of the brain governing cognitive processes and increases connectivity in brain networks associated with sensory functions. It does so by stimulating a particular receptor for the neurotransmitter serotonin (serotonin-2A or 5HT2A receptor). The 5HT2A receptor has been implicated in the regulation of mood and cognition.

White Liberals Present Themselves as Less Competent in Interactions with African-Americans | Yale Insights
The researchers found that liberal individuals were less likely to use words that would make them appear highly competent when the person they were addressing was presumed to be black rather than white. No significant differences were seen in the word selection of conservatives based on the presumed race of their partner. “It was kind of an unpleasant surprise to see this subtle but persistent effect,” Dupree says. “Even if it’s ultimately well-intentioned, it could be seen as patronizing.”
