Let’s get this out of the way quickly – it’s likely you’re not studying as effectively as you could be according to science

He’s interested in neuroimaging methods to understand brain mechanisms of psychopathology, which broadly refers to the study of mental disorders.
The Fulcrum sat down with Dr. Cassidy to discuss his 2022 study recently published in neuropharmacology in more detail.
The industry is looking to expand whale detection capability outwards, Hodul is in the process of developing the system for detecting whales and then the policymakers are going to use the tool to be able to reroute ships and fishing gear.
To better understand the effects nanoplastics and other contaminants like flame retardants may exhibit on either the environment or the living organisms that inhabit it, the fulcrum spoke with U of O professor Jan Mennigen
“The mission of soapbox is twofold. It’s to promote the work that they’re doing, but to also let folks know, young and old that they can get into STEM – it’s not specific to a gender and really everybody can love and do wonderful science.”
With the help from Katy Milkman’s book, the Fulcrum has summarised some of the key points on how effective science-based strategies help us make lasting changes in our lives.
I’ve been at the Fulcrum for four years now, half of those as its editor-in-chief — it’s time for me to move on. However, before I do, I think it is worth reflecting on my five long years in student journalism. Apologies in advance, as this may get a little sappy.

The researchers observed improvement in cardiac function and electrical signal conduction in the mice that were given the spray, and the results were able to be replicated in repeated experiments.
Rainbow trout pairing provides an ideal model to measure protein and glucose metabolism as well as the stress response itself.
“It kind of just made sense, because we have different skill sets and different experiences at the Fulcrum, it was a good match for us to run together,” said incoming Editor-in-Chief Jasmine McKnight about her and Hailey Otten’s election.
There’s a causal mechanism happening during hibernation which would result in faster ageing occurring at the DNA level during active periods and a plateau or slower ageing during the hibernating months.
Scientific illustration work truly excites Julius Csotonyi and Juliana Spahr, and gives them the space to wholeheartedly love what they do.
The Fulcrum’s arts and culture editor had a lot to say about the season two finale of Euphoria
Rove beetles happen to be the largest group of animals that exist however, they remain as one the most understudied.
This finding disrupts any preconceived notions that Pleistocene wolves were located at bottom of the carnivore levels.
“For health and safety, I still have some misgivings. I am still a bit concerned,” said U of O associate professor Veldon Coburn on the return to campus plan.
“You have to invest in yourself and your dreams. I bet on myself and turned down a good job and decided to do my PhD in a field I was studying. We have to make those kinds of decisions, my advice is to go for it. If you have a dream you have to put your heart into it,” said Farah Alibay, a current NASA engineer
