Art Therapy Is More Than Just Making Nice Pictures
Anyone who has ever put pen to paper, crayon to coloring book, or hand to wet clay knows the healing powers embedded in such creative endeavors. More than just a pastime, art can be an escape, a stimulus, a war cry or a tranquil reprieve. Art therapy, defined as "a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of communication," revolves around this principal of art's immense power. Open to children and adults of any background and experience, the still-evolving field explores modes of expression, understanding and healing that occur when paint touches canvas. While too many schools today run unde...

The Science of Profile Pictures Says, Yes, That Picture is Totally Fine
This article originally appeared on Inverse. By Sarah Sloat I recently took to Craigslist, that cesspool of human want, to fill an open room in my apartment. When the applications started rolling in, I did what most sensible, wifi-connected people do and googled the shit out of my potential roommates. I wanted to know what each of their deals were, but I was just as eager to see pictures. That's not because I want to fill my house with hotties, but because Craigslist isn't known for being full of not-chatbots and you sometimes judge a human by its cover. When I came across a Facebook account with a profile picture of say...

First pictures of BRCA2 protein show how it works to repair DNA
Scientists have taken pictures of the BRCA2 protein for the first time, showing how it works to repair damaged DNA. The findings showed that each pair of BRCA2 proteins binds two sets of RAD51 that run in opposite directions. This allows it to work on strands of broken DNA that point in either direction. They also show that BRCA2's job is to help RAD51 form short filaments at multiple sites along the DNA, presumably to increase the efficiency of establishing longer filaments required to search for matching strands.

Chandra Observatory: 15 Years of Glorious Pictures
You’ll never see the universe as beautifully as the Chandra Observatory can see it. That’s because Chandra—which is celebrating its 15th anniversary in high-Earth orbit—sees in x-ray frequencies and you don’t. It’s a pity, actually that we’re blind in that bandwidth, because so much of the cosmos makes itself known there. Signals coming from planets, comets, supernovas, from the dark matter in the vast spaces between galaxies, all emit x-ray energy. The portraits they paint, with false color added to make them visible to our eyes, are more than static snapshots. They are, instead, pictures of processes: of ma...

Using multiple pictures in an ad? Different perspectives can confuse consumers
(University of Chicago Press Journals) Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see the ocean from a private balcony at a luxury resort? Self-imagery is a powerful marketing tactic and many ads use pictures that help you see yourself using a product or service. According to a new study in the Journal of Consumer Research, showing photos from multiple perspectives can have a negative effect on how a person processes the information in an ad.

Computer arranges pictures based on artistic features
Until now, if a nature photographer wanted to arrange pictures of various butterflies systematically based on color or size to create an illustrated book, a lot of time was needed: The artist would have to arrange the individual pictures of the animals on the computer by hand to bring them into the requested order. Suitable software that would have been able to arrange pictures automatically based on certain characteristics did not exist. Researchers have now developed a method that makes it possible to arrange numerous pictures very fast.
