Symptoms and traits of borderline personality disorder may run in families: University of Toronto research
Family members of those with borderline personality disorder (BPD) show similarities in their brains and personalities­ - and even interpret some facial expressions similarly, according to a series of studies by researchers at the University of Toronto. "One of the more urgent questions I hear when I speak with family groups is whether the disorder can be passed down from parents to their children," says  Anthony C. Ruocco , professor, interim graduate chair and director of clinical training in University of Toronto Scarborough's department of psychological clinical science.

Student Projects Sniff Out Black Carbon Hotspots
Like many air pollution problems, black carbon does not affect everyone equally. Created by the incomplete combustion of some fossil fuels and biomass, black carbon causes health problems such as respiratory and cardiovascular disease, cancer, and even birth defects. Those effects are most pronounced in people who live near black carbon hotspots such as freeways, concrete factories, and roads frequented by large trucks.

Nanostructures get complex with electron equivalents
Nanostructures get complex with electron equivalents
Complex crystals that mimic metals-including a structure for which there is no natural equivalent-can be achieved with a new approach to guiding nanoparticle self-assembly. Rather than just nanoparticles that serve as "atom equivalents,” the crystals produced and interpreted by Northwestern University, University of Michigan and Argonne National Laboratory rely on even smaller particles that simulate electrons.
