How emotions shape our work life
How emotions shape our work life
Jochen Menges, an expert in organisational behaviour, thinks that emotions matter profoundly for employee performance and behaviour.

Research suggests Robert Burns may have had bipolar disorder
Research suggests Robert Burns may have had bipolar disorder
Researchers at the University of Glasgow suggest Robert Burns may have had bipolar disorder, according to a paper published in The Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh. More than 800 letters and journals have helped the academics to analyse the mental state of Robert Burns. The project also looked beyond Scotland's national bard's correspondence to his relationships and day-to-day life in a bid to establish if he had a psychiatric disorder.

All in a day's work
All in a day’s work
Researchers at the University of Cambridge are helping to understand the world of work - the good, the bad, the fair and the future. Here, Simon Deakin, Catherine Barnard and Brendan Burchell launch our month-long focus on some of these projects. Researchers do not initiate projects simply to overturn conventional wisdom, but this is often what they end up doing, simply because few of the ideas or practices which are 'taken for granted' in everyday discourse can safely withstand this type of scrutiny.

Mongooses remember and reward helpful friends
Mongooses remember and reward helpful friends
Dwarf mongooses remember previous cooperative acts by their groupmates and reward them later, according to new work by University of Bristol researchers, published today in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA. Market trade was once considered the domain of humans but the exchange of goods and services is now widely recognised in other animals.

Six months of Herceptin could be as effective as 12 months for some women
For women with HER2 positive early-stage breast cancer taking Herceptin for six months could be as effective as 12 months in preventing relapse and death, and can reduce side effects, finds new research. We are confident that this will mark the first steps towards a reduction of Herceptin treatment to six months in many women with HER2-positive breast cancer.

Plug-and-play diagnostic devices
Plug-and-play diagnostic devices
Researchers at MIT's Little Devices Lab have developed a set of modular blocks that can be put together in different ways to produce diagnostic devices. These "plug-and-play" devices, which require little expertise to assemble, can test blood glucose levels in diabetic patients or detect viral infection, among other functions.

UCLA Geriatrics receives $13.6 million to evaluate approaches to dementia care
There are an estimated 5.5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's disease, the most common type of dementia. As that number grows over the next few decades, health care organizations will need to develop better ways to serve people with dementia and the family members who care for them. Various approaches have been taken to manage the care of those with dementia, but there is not a consensus on which ones are the most effective.

Spoilt for choice? How neuroscience can explain your attitude toward freedom of choice
Spoilt for choice? How neuroscience can explain your attitude toward freedom of choice
Being spoilt for choice can be a burden or a blessing: People value their freedom of choice differently. Whereas some people happily let others make decisions for them, others might rebel against restrictions of their freedom of choice. Scientists from the University of Bern have now been able to explain the individual attitude toward freedom of choice based on brain activations.

Workplace wellness programs yield positive effects for Canadian employees
Employee wellness programs in the workplace have been shown to work with some success in the United States, particularly when participation is tied to substantial incentives like a reduction in health insurance premiums for participating employees. In Canada, as a result of the publicly funded health care system, incentives for employers and their employees to participate in such programs are primarily focused on the goal of becoming healthier - and the programs are few and far between, despite evidence showing their effectiveness.
