Given the high costs of aggression, why have people evolved to act aggressively? Comparative biologists have frequently observed links between aggression, status, and mating in nonhuman animals. In this series of experiments, the authors examined the effects of status, competition, and mating motives on men's and women's aggression. For men, status motives increased direct aggression (face-to-face confrontation). Men's aggression was also boosted by mating motives, but only when observers were other men. For women, both status and mating motives increased indirect aggression (e.g., socially excluding the perpetrator). Although neither status nor mating motives increased women's direct aggression, women did become more directly aggressive when motivated to compete for scarce resources. These context- and sex-specific effects on human aggression contribute to a broader understanding of the functional nature of aggressive behavior.

Lung cancer, including lung adenocarcinoma (adenoCa), is a heterogeneous disease, which evolves from molecular alterations in the airway epithelium. The study explores whether a subtype of lung adenoCa expresses the unique molecular features of human airway basal cell (BC), and how e...
We prove that the space of bounded-degree polynomial
Maps of the unit simplex to itself is a compact and convex subset of a
Euclidean space. We provide an explicit characterization of such a space and of
Its boundary. A special class of maps in the boundary, the folding maps, which

Integrating the principles of transdisciplinarity and participation posed a series of challenges to the research process that were difficult, and sometimes impossible to overcome. However, positive outcomes from this experience were the lessons learned by the different actors. Despite the lack of im...
