Prawns have personalities — and cautious crustaceans do better in the battle for food, new research shows.
Some human brains are nearly twice the size of others — but how might that matter? Researcher have discovered that these differences in size are related to the brain’s shape […]

A new genetic study of ancient individuals in the Americas and their contemporary descendants finds that two populations that diverged from one another 18,000 to 15,000 years ago remained apart […]
Building on two decades of research, investigators have determined that ‘cellular housekeeping’ can extend the lifespan and healthspan of mammals.
