Congratulations to the four Mass General research teams whose publications were featured in the Altmetric Top 100 for 2019.
In this study, the Dunn lab is specifically interested in better understanding how the Boston Marathon bombings and manhunt in 2013 affected mothers in Boston and around the world, and how these events might be recorded in children’s teeth.
Recent research by the Dunn lab has suggested that the timing of adversities in life matters. There appear to be “sensitive periods” during development when exposure to adversity may have more potent and long-lasting impacts.
For a bit now, the Dunn lab has been leading efforts to study teeth. They are curious about the stories they might tell about a person’s life experiences and future risk for brain health problems, like depression.
There’s promising evidence that yoga could work well as a complementary therapy for depression, but some key questions remain.
Researchers are hoping that data on patient activity levels post-surgery that is collected via smartphones will help them better understand what the recovery process looks like.
We encourage everyone involved in science —from investigators to postdocs to lab technicians and more — to work on their science communication skills.
If you’re working between Christmas and New Year’s, chances are your office or lab is pretty quiet. OK, it’s probably more of a ghost town. If you’re looking for ways to pass the time—and you’ve already cleared out your inbox and cleaned up your desk—check out these science favorites from around the web in 2019! […]
