Shoppers confused by ’traffic light’ food labels, says study
Nutritional labels on food packaging are confusing to consumers and may be hindering attempts to promote healthy diets and reduce obesity, according to a new study from the University of Birmingham. The report, based on the results of face-to-face's with shoppers, finds that while most people check front-of-pack (FOP) labels and recognise their importance, the ‘traffic light' system used by many retailers is ambiguous to consumers, who also suffer from ‘information overload' and a lack of contextual knowledge.

Commonly prescribed drugs affect decisions to harm oneself and others
Healthy people given the serotonin-enhancing antidepressant citalopram were willing to pay almost twice as much to prevent harm to themselves or others than those given placebo drugs in a moral decision-making experiment at UCL. In contrast, the dopamine-boosting Parkinson's drug levodopa made healthy people more selfish, eliminating an altruistic tendency to prefer harming themselves over others.

Ahoy there! Spiders really can sail across oceans
Strictly terrestrial – spiders were originally thought to be true land lubbers. But how then, do we explain their ability to disperse across continents and oceans? For the first time experts in the SpiderLab at The University of Nottingham have described how money spiders use water tension, their legs as a ‘rudder' and a good following wind to propel themselves across water.

Gene therapy for cystic fibrosis shows encouraging trial results
Gene therapy for cystic fibrosis shows encouraging trial results
A therapy that replaces the faulty gene responsible for cystic fibrosis in patients' lungs has produced encouraging results in a major UK trial. One hundred and thirty six patients aged 12 and over received monthly doses of either the therapy or the placebo for one year. The clinical trial reached its primary endpoint with patients who received therapy having a significant, if modest benefit in lung function compared with those receiving a placebo.

Our sense of smell evolved, including in cave men
A group of scientists led by Dr Kara Hoover of the University of Alaska Fairbanks and including Professor Matthew Cobb of The University of Manchester, has studied how our sense of smell has evolved, and has even reconstructed how a long-extinct human relative would have been able to smell. The sense of smell plays a decisive role in human societies, as it is linked to our taste for food, as well as our identification of pleasant and unpleasant substances.

Exploring the West’s First and Second World War archaeology
Some of the West's fascinating but lesser known wartime heritage has been explored by archaeologists from the University of Bristol: a Second World War 'Stop Line' built to protect Bristol, and practice trenches dug by First World War soldiers on Brandon Hill. Staff and students from the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology conducted excavations in Hog Wood, just north of Hinton Charterhouse near Bath, where remains of a 'Stop Line' built in 1940 to protect Bristol from German invasion can still be seen.

Sleep deprivation could reduce intrusive memories of traumatic scenes
A good night's sleep has long been recommended to those who have experienced a traumatic event. But an Oxford University-led study provides preliminary experimental work suggesting it could actually be the wrong thing to do.     Sleep deprivation might prevent people from consolidating memories of experimental trauma, reducing their tendency to experience flashbacks, according to a new Oxford-led study.

Bow ties and cuttlefish: Bristol researchers gain new insight into a human visual super sense
An experiment originally designed to test the visual abilities of octopuses and cuttlefish has given University of Bristol researchers an unprecedented insight into the human ability to perceive polarized light - the super sense that most of us don't even know we have. We are all familiar with colour and brightness, but there is a third property of light, the ‘polarization', which tells us the orientation in which the light waves are oscillating.
