Any organism with a brain needs to make decisions about how it's going to navigate through three-dimensional spaces. That's why animals evolved sensory organs in the ears to detect if they're rotating or moving in a straight line. But how does an animal perceive curved motion, as in turning a…

Thanks to combination antiretroviral therapy, many people with HIV can be expected to live decades after being infected. Yet doctors have observed that these patients often show signs of premature aging. Now a study has applied a highly accurate biomarker to measure just how much HIV infection ages…

Researchers have conducted a study on the effect the misperception of a child's weight by their parents can have on a child's actual weight. Children whose parents perceived their weight as being 'overweight', as opposed to 'about the right weight', gained more weight (increase in BMI-Z score) from…
