Trying to Be Happy Is Making You Miserable. Here ’s Why
The Declaration of Independence guaranteed Americans the right to pursue happiness, and we haven’t stopped looking for it since. But despite the college courses, research labs and countless self-help books dedicated to that search, only 33% of Americans actually said they were happy in a 2017 survey. A new paper may help explain why: We’re trying too hard. The research, published in the journal Emotion, found that overemphasizing happiness can make people more likely to obsess over failure and negative emotions when they inevitably do happen, bringing them more stress in the long run. “Happiness is a goo...

Think twice before you brag about your accomplishments — and if you do, you better have the goods to back it up, a new study suggests.

When people did boast, the study found that their self-promotions were received better by others if they were supported by evidence. “If you want to present yourself in a positive way and talk about your accolades, then it’s really helpful to have external information or some sort of objective corroboration of how good you a...

Methyl marks on RNA discovered to be key to brain cell connections
FINDINGSMethyl chemical groups dot lengths of DNA, helping to control when certain genes are accessible by a cell. In new research, UCLA scientists have shown that at the connections between brain cells — which often are located far from the central control centers of the cells — methyl groups also dot chains of RNA. This methyl markup of RNA molecules is likely key to brain cells’ ability to quickly send signals to other cells and react to changing stimuli in a fraction of a second.BACKGROUNDTo dictate the biology of any cell, DNA in the cell ’s nucleus must be translated into corresponding strands...
