What Can Metaphors Tell Us about Personality?
Theorists propose that metaphors are not mere figures of speech, but can actively shape one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Social psychologists have supported this claim over the past 10 years. Personality psychologists, though, have only recen

What can vertebrates tell us about segmentation?
Segmentation is a feature of the body plans of a number of diverse animal groupings, including the annelids, arthropods and chordates. However, it has been unclear whether or not these different manifestations of segmentation are independently derive

What vibrations tell us about GTPases.
In this review, we discuss how time-resolved Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is used to understand how GTP hydrolysis is catalyzed by small GTPases and their cognate GTPase-activating proteins (GAPs). By interaction with small GTPases,

What do temporal profiles tell us about adolescent alcohol use? Results from a large sample in the United Kingdom.
The psychological construct broadly known as time perspective is potentially useful in understanding a range of adolescent behaviours, including alcohol use. However, the utility of the construct has been hindered by measurement and conceptual proble

What can simulations tell us about GPCRs: Integrating the scales.
The functional dynamics of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) encompasses multiple spatiotemporal scales, ranging from femtoseconds to seconds and Ångströms to micrometers. Computational approaches, often in close collaboration with experimental met

What insects can tell us about the origins of consciousness.
How, why, and when consciousness evolved remain hotly debated topics. Addressing these issues requires considering the distribution of consciousness across the animal phylogenetic tree. Here we propose that at least one invertebrate clade, the insect

What can 1 billion trials tell us about visual search?
Mobile technology (e.g., smartphones and tablets) has provided psychologists with a wonderful opportunity: through careful design and implementation, mobile applications can be used to crowd source data collection. By garnering massive amounts of dat

What DNA viral genomic rearrangements tell us about persistence.
Understanding the life cycle and pathogenesis of animal viruses requires that we have systems in which the viruses can replicate and cause disease. For the latter, we rely upon animal models or information that we can obtain from studying natural inf

What does global mean temperature tell us about local climate?
The subject of climate feedbacks focuses attention on global mean surface air temperature (GMST) as the key metric of climate change. But what does knowledge of past and future GMST tell us about the climate of specific regions? In the context of the
