Gomphothere hunting at an early Clovis site

A study of an archaeological site in Mexico finds evidence of the early Clovis culture in North America more than 13,000 years ago, along with evidence for elephant-like gomphotheres as Clovis prey. The Clovis culture represents the earliest well-defined North American foraging group, although its origins remain unclear.

Marijuana and brain response to dopamine

Marijuana abuse blunts the brain’s reactivity to dopamine signaling, a study finds. Drugs of abuse such as cocaine stimulate signaling in the brain by the neurotransmitter dopamine, a mechanism that many researchers believe underlies the drugs’ rewarding effects.

Paradoxical thinking and conflict resolution

A strategy for conflict resolution that promotes paradoxical thinking may encourage open-mindedness and a long-term willingness to compromise that is reflected in voting behavior, according to a study. Strategies for conflict intervention often involve presenting information that destabilizes the beliefs of conflicting sides and inspires a change in perspective.

Evaluating the accuracy of strategic intelligence

An analysis of more than 1,500 strategic intelligence forecasts from the Canadian government finds evidence of high reliability and discrimination skill. Despite tens of billions of dollars spent on strategic intelligence every year in the United States, the forecasting accuracy of intelligence analysts remains largely unclear.

Also of interest from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

A study of 42 people facing a choice between two highly-valued products finds that the paradoxical pairing of positive and anxious feelings during win-win choices may be due to simultaneous activity in brain regions that correlate with stimulus valuation, inducing a positive feeling, and with the cost of choosing a response, inducing anxiety.

Brain activity in sex addiction mirrors that of drug addiction

Pornography triggers brain activity in people with compulsive sexual behaviour – known commonly as sex addiction – similar to that triggered by drugs in the brains of drug addicts, according to a University of Cambridge study published in the journal PLOS ONE. However, the researchers caution that this does not necessarily mean that pornography itself is addictive.

Poor nutrition’s intergenerational influence on sperm

Restricting calories of a pregnant mouse can impact the sperm of her offspring, leading to metabolic diseases in both these organisms and in subsequent generations, a new study reports. Scientists have known that prenatal environments can affect adult metabolic health, and that of ensuing generations.

Real-world microdata a boon for understanding household spending
