Across the United States—and in developed nations around the world—twenty-somethings are taking longer to finish school, leave home, begin a career, get married and reach other milestones of adulthood.

According to a new study led by psychologists at the University of Toronto, it’s because how much something means to you actually influences how you see it as well as how...

Paying attention to the target consistently and strongly increased the fMRI activity, regardless of whether the subject saw the target or not. This result was expected because many previous studies had shown that attending to a signal reinforces its representation in the cortex. Much more intriguing, though, was that whether or not the stimulus...

Animals live long and prosper when eating from a menu that puts them just this side of starvation. So far, experiments with yeast, worms, flies, spiders, fish and rodents all have shown the antiaging power of severely restricting calories. And research in rhesus monkeys suggests similar benefits in primates: One study found that monkeys eating 30...

"Ticking away inside almost all cells are tiny clocks composed of protein gears. Scientists have known that these molecular clocks govern the daily rhythms of life, from mealtimes and bedtimes to the rise and fall of hormone levels, body temperature and blood pressure. New research shows that circadian clocks, as the daily timekeepers are...

This includes thinking up random numbers or deciding whether to recount positive or negative experiences. Do you agree with the conclusion...
