New injury prevention exercise programme will dramatically reduce injuries in rugby
A new dynamic 20-minute exercise programme, performed by rugby players before training and pre-match, could dramatically reduce injuries in the sport according to a benchmark study published today (Sunday 22 October). Published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine , the collaborative project between health researchers at the University and England Rugby shows that the introduction of a simple injury prevention exercise programme has significant impacts in reducing rates both for concussion and lower limb injuries.

Researchers help inspire Scotland’s new laws to ban smacking
The decision by the Scottish government to ban smacking has been welcomed by UCL researchers whose report into the damage caused to children by physical punishment played a key part in framing the proposed new legislation. The research in 2015 by Anja Heilmann, Yvonne Kelly and Richard Watt from the UCL Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care showed that there was ample evidence that physical punishment can damage children and escalate into physical abuse.

Probing how Americans think about mental life
Most people don't have answers to the big questions about consciousness or the meaning of life, but they do have a way of thinking about and categorizing mental life. It comes down to three things - body, heart and mind. "Is a robot capable of experiencing guilt?” was one of the questions Stanford researchers asked to probe how people make sense of the sensations, emotions and thoughts that make up mental life.

New machines could be a boost to animal and human neuroscience research as they allow lots of insects to be tested at once. They can be easily and cheaply made through 3D printing, or even out of folded card or LEGO, combined with a simple Raspberry Pi computer. Fruit flies are a common research animal in neuroscience studies because of their surprising similarities to humans.

Making big data a little smaller
When we think about digital information, we often think about size. A daily email newsletter, for example, maybe 75 to 100 kilobytes in size. But data also has dimensions, based on the numbers of variables in a piece of data. An email, for example, can be viewed as a high-dimensional vector where there's one coordinate for each word in the dictionary and the value in that coordinate is the number of times that word is used in the email.
