An online driver training course developed by researchers at The University of Queensland has been shown to reduce speeding and improve driving ability. UQ School of Psychology 's Professor Mark Horswill , along with Dr Andrew Hill, Dr Lisa Buckley, and Associate Professor Marcus Watson, developed the program that teaches drivers how to identify hazards earlier to avoid accidents.

How wallflowers evolved a complementary pair of plant defenses
How wallflowers evolved a complementary pair of plant defenses
A new study led by Tobias Züst from the Institute of Plant Sciences of the University of Bern shows that a pair of complementary chemical defenses evolved independently in wallflowers, shaped by co-evolution with local insects. A pair of chemicals used by wallflowers and their kin to ward off predators have evolved to complement each other, with one targeting generalist herbivores and the other targeting specialized herbivores that have become resistant to the generalist defense.

Genes sow seeds of neuropsychiatric diseases even before birth
From early prenatal development through childhood, the prefrontal cortex of the human brain undergoes an avalanche of developmental activity. In some cases, it also contains seeds of neuropsychiatric illnesses and conditions such as autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia, according to a new genetic analysis led by researchers at Yale University and the University of California-San Francisco (UCSF).

Antibiotic matter waves
Antibiotic matter waves
One of the central tenets of quantum mechanics is the wave-particle duality. It tells us that even massive objects behave like both particles and waves. A number of previous experiments have shown this for electrons, neutrons, atoms and even large molecules. Quantum theory maintains that this is a universal property of matter.

False memories of crime appear real when retold to others
People are no better than chance at identifying when someone else is recounting a false or real memory of a crime, according to a new UCL study. The findings, published in Frontiers in Psychology , build on a previous study that was the first to successfully implant false memories of committing a crime - involving either assault or assault with a weapon that resulted in police contact.

When Maxwell’s demon takes its time
Researchers at the Universities Vienna and Stuttgart have investigated a version of Maxwell's demon embodied by a delayed feedback force acting on a levitated microparticle. They confirmed new fundamental limits that time delay imposes on the demon's actions which are not covered by the standard laws of thermodynamics.

University of Minnesota Twin Cities designs respirator mask prototypes from filter technology
The need for N95 masks has skyrocketed in recent weeks in response to COVID-19. To address this challenge, an interdisciplinary research team at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities has designed two respirator mask prototypes from donated filter material by Cummins and bendable components from Bedford Industries.  The masks - one modified anesthesia mask and one single-use, disposable mask - are being developed to be close to a N95-equivalent with three distinctive components in mind: ventilation, fit and resilience to supply chain fluctuations.

Saturn’s ’energy crisis’ solved with data from Cassini’s final mission
Data gathered by the Cassini spacecraft during the final months of its mission show why Saturn's upper atmosphere is much hotter than expected. Scientists have long wondered why Saturn's upper atmosphere is hotter than would be expected by heating from the Sun alone - a conundrum dubbed Saturn's ‘energy crisis'.

Open science in the era of COVID-19
Science moving forward without traditional forms of peer review could shorten the path to solutions - but it also increases the chances that low-quality science gets overhyped. Usually, if biomedical researchers want to publish in a high-quality journal, their research must first withstand review by several outside experts.

Stronger Atlantic currents drive temperate species to migrate towards the Artic Ocean
The Arctic Ocean increasingly resembles the Atlantic, not only regarding its temperature but also the species that live there. However, scientists from the CNRS and Université Laval, Quebec 1 showed that an unprecedented strengthening of Atlantic currents is playing a major role in this phenomenon called 'Atlantification'.

AI techniques used to improve battery health and safety
Researchers have designed a machine learning method that can predict battery health with 10x higher accuracy than current industry standard, which could aid in the development of safer and more reliable batteries for electric vehicles and consumer electronics. The researchers, from Cambridge and Newcastle Universities, have designed a new way to monitor batteries by sending electrical pulses into them and measuring the response.

Memory cells that help us interpret new situations
Memory cells that help us interpret new situations
Neurons that store abstract representations of past experiences are activated when a new, similar event takes place. Imagine you are meeting a friend for dinner at a new restaurant. You may try dishes you haven't had before, and your surroundings will be completely new to you. However, your brain knows that you have had similar experiences - perusing a menu, ordering appetizers, and splurging on dessert are all things that you have probably done when dining out.
