Fear of divine retribution linked to spread of human civilisations
A new study published in the journal, Nature , tests the theory that communities are fair and cooperate with outsiders because of the fear of divine retribution.  The researchers conducted games with people of different religions and ed them about their beliefs. They found the higher individuals rated their god as being moralistic, knowledgeable and punishing, the more likely they were to give money to strangers who shared their religious beliefs.

Saturn and Enceladus produce the same amount of plasma
The first evidence that Saturn's upper atmosphere may, when buffeted by the solar wind, emit the same total amount of mass per second into its magnetosphere as its moon, Enceladus, has been found by UCL scientists working on the Cassini mission. Magnetospheres are regions of space that are heavily influenced by the magnetic field of a nearby planet and can contain charged particles in the form of plasma from both external and internal sources.

Proportion of home deaths falls in South-West Scotland
Researchers based in South-West Scotland have studied the place of death of nearly 20,000 people in a bid to find out whether this pattern changed over time. A team led by Dr Chris Isles, consultant in medicine at NHS Dumfries and Galloway and Emeritus Professor at the University of Glasgow, and Professor David Clark, based at the University of Glasgow's Dumfries campus, found that fewer people died in their own home in 2010 than in 2000 in a study of 19,697 residents of Dumfries and Galloway.

Who does most of the housework in multicultural Britain?
The first ever nationally representative study has looked at how housework is organised by couples across different ethnic groups in Britain. It finds that Black Caribbean men have the least traditional attitudes to gender roles and get stuck into the household chores.  Meanwhile, Indian men report taking on a fairer share of routine housework than white British men - even though Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi women report spending significantly more time on housework than white British women.

The amazing axon adventure
How does the brain make connections, and how does it maintain them? Cambridge neuroscientists and mathematicians are using a variety of techniques to understand how the brain 'wires up', and what it might be able to tell us about degeneration in later life. To read these words, light is first refracted by the cornea, through the pupil in the iris and onto the lens, which focuses images onto the retina.

Exploring the depths of the South Atlantic Ocean since the last Ice Age
A team of researchers have discovered that the increased levels of CO 2 in the atmosphere during the last ice age did not result from reduced density of the deep ocean as previously thought. In the first study of its kind, the team, made up of researchers from The University of Nottingham , the University of Cambridge and the British Antarctic Survey, were able to disprove the theory that the CO 2 (that came from the depths of the ocean), was released because deep water became less dense, able to overturn, and ventilate its dissolved carbon to the atmosphere.
