I was looking through recent articles I've pulled aside for signal boosting, and there are a number of science snacks among them. Thus, without further adieu, some science crunchies for a Friday evening:
- More clues to Autism. Continuing research is showing that autism and a host of other conditions are strongly correlated with Mitochondrial dysfunction.
- Some tricks for destroying gender differences in math and science performance. The best part about this exercise, it's something that students can do without institutional support. And it seems to be effective against other stereotype-based performance failures, too. Which is incredibly sexy.
- On a lighter side, James Burke's Connections series can now be streamed over the web. One of the best pieces of television out there about how disciplines are interrelated and how technology staggers forward. Look around you!
