Krystal D'Costa Krystal D’Costa selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the social sciences, including anthropology, research, and philosophy. She blogs about anthropology, technology, and urban life at Anthropology in Practice.

On ResearchBlogging this week:

  • Can gold fight cancer? Possibly! From the Lab Bench under the Research/Scholarship heading Paige Brown reports how the Xia lab uses alchemy to create gold nanocages, which can then be used for diagnostics and drug delivery.
  • Under the Anthropology heading, Kate Clancy of Context and Variation investigates how sex bias can impact parental investment, which in turn can have serious effects on their children’s development.
  • Also under Anthropology, Jason Goldman discusses learning processes at the aptly named The Thoughtful Animal. Are humans unique in the ways we retain and recall information? The short answer is yes, but Jason drums up a few examples where other species come close.

Tune in next week for more research from the social sciences.

    My wife and i got so contented when Ervin could carry out his survey using the precious recommendations he grabbed out of your web page. It’s not at all simplistic to just possibly be giving for free facts which often other folks could have been making money from. We already know we have the writer to thank because of that. The specific illustrations you made, the easy website menu, the friendships your site make it possible to promote – it’s got all awesome, and it is helping our son and us understand this matter is amusing, which is tremendously serious. Thanks for everything!

    I was navigating online for ideas on a new article to write upon and saw your homepage. Although I may agree with your ideas a little bit, I think I will write something that is somewhat at the underside of your article. I like your ideas though and will write something that is very close to it .
