The Science of Sleep in Medieval Arabic Medicine: Part 1: Ibn Sīnā's Pneumatic Paradigm.
Chest Fancy N

Mar 10th, 2023 - Modern sleep specialists are taught that, before the twentieth century, sleep was universally classified as a passive phenomenon with minimal to no brain activity. However, these assertions are made on the basis of particular readings and reconstructions of the history of sleep, using Western European medical works and ignoring works composed in other parts of the world. In this first of two ar...

Journal of Preventive Medicine and Hygiene; Martini M, Calcagno P et. al.

Mar 10th, 2023 - With the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the terms quarantine, contagion and infection have again become part of our everyday speech, prompting historians to reflect on the settings in which they were originally used and to make comparisons with the present time. How did people cope with epidemics in the past? What measures were taken? Here, we analyse the institutional response of the Republic of Ge...

Inheritance and Innovation of Pottery Sculpture Technique in Shiwan, China: A Grounded ...
International Journal of Environmental Research and Publi... Zhou L, Zou X et. al.

Feb 26th, 2023 - Ceramics play an important role in human daily life and production practice. Pottery sculpture technique is the core of ceramic making. However, the production process of traditional ceramics is accompanied by high pollution, which has a great impact on human health and the ecological environment. Rapid development of industrialization has exacerbated this consequence. As the "Pottery Capital o...

Annals of Plastic Surgery; Imai S, Narushima M et. al.

Feb 17th, 2023 - Hideyo Noguchi is one of the most famous scientists in Japan's history, and his portrait has adorned the ¥1,000 banknotes since 2004. He had a childhood burn injury resulting in severe hand scarring and contracture that plagued his early life and education.The resulting hand deformity required 3 separate reconstructions with the third and most complex surgery performed by Professor Tsugishige K...

Less extreme and earlier outbursts of ice-dammed lakes since 1900.
Nature Veh G, Lützow N et. al.

Feb 16th, 2023 - Episodic failures of ice-dammed lakes have produced some of the largest floods in history, with disastrous consequences for communities in high mountains1-7. Yet, estimating changes in the activity of ice-dam failures through time remains controversial because of inconsistent regional flood databases. Here, by collating 1,569 ice-dam failures in six major mountain regions, we systematically ass...

Revisiting the Holocene global temperature conundrum.
Nature Kaufman DS, Broadman E

Feb 16th, 2023 - Recent global temperature reconstructions for the current interglacial period (the Holocene, beginning 11,700 years ago) have generated contrasting trends. This Review examines evidence from indicators and drivers of global change, as inferred from proxy records and simulated by climate models, to evaluate whether anthropogenic global warming was preceded by a long-term warming trend or by glob...

World Neurosurgery; McLean E, Cornwell MA et. al.

Feb 15th, 2023 - Over the last century, collaboration between clinical neuropsychologists and neurosurgeons has advanced the state of the science in both disciplines. These advances have provided the field of neuropsychology with many opportunities for innovation in the care of patients prior to, during, and following neurosurgical intervention.

Severe multi-year drought coincident with Hittite collapse around 1198-1196 BC.
Nature Manning SW, Kocik C et. al.

Feb 10th, 2023 - The potential of climate change to substantially alter human history is a pressing concern, but the specific effects of different types of climate change remain unknown. This question can be addressed using palaeoclimatic and archaeological data. For instance, a 300-year, low-frequency shift to drier, cooler climate conditions around 1200 BC is frequently associated with the collapse of several...

Science diplomacy on display: mobile atomic exhibitions in the cold war: Introduction t...
Annals of Science; Rentetzi M, Germanese D

Feb 6th, 2023 - Despite the increasing interest in science exhibitions, there has been hardly any work on mobile science exhibitions and their role within science diplomacy - a gap this thematic issue is meant to fill. Atomic mobile exhibitions are seen here not only as cultural sites but as multifaceted strategic processes of transnational nuclear history. We move beyond the bipolar Cold War history that port...

A Century of Behavioral Genetics at the University of Minnesota.
Twin Research and Human Genetics : the Official Journal O... Willoughby EA, Giannelis A et. al.

Feb 4th, 2023 - The University of Minnesota has played an important role in the resurgence and eventual mainstreaming of human behavioral genetics in psychology and psychiatry. We describe this history in the context of three major movements in behavioral genetics: (1) radical eugenics in the early 20th century, (2) resurgence of human behavioral genetics in the 1960s, largely using twin and adoption designs t...
