Looking for Super-Massive Neutron Stars

The astrophysics field of compact binary millisecond pulsars is thriving. This growing class of rapidly spinning neutron stars – also known as "spiders"– constitutes the most promising place to find massive pulsars. Super-massive neutron stars, with a mass significantly higher than two Solar mass...

Gender-Gap in Political Endurance: a novel political inclusion theory

Democracies are under pressure worldwide: The political landscape is rapidly changing, with new parties emerging and old ones suffering, as voters turn away from established parties. We also witness a significant gender-gap in political endurance, meaning that women’s careers as elected represent...

Evolution and mechanisms of thermal performance – answers through artificial selection in zebrafish

Abstract Climate change is warming waters globally. Ectothermic animals, such as fish, have the same body temperature as the surrounding water and are therefore thought to be particularly sensitive to warming. To predict climate change impacts on fish populations, we must first know how fish are ...

Set to change: early life factors restricting and promoting neurocognitive plasticity through life

Cognitive function in old age can be predicted from how you functioned when you were young. This is remarkable, as there are substantial cognitive age changes. Are we neurodevelopmentally set to change through life in certain ways? The objective of Set-to-change is to test whether and how early l...
