  • Study on brown bears provides insight into human gut microbial ecology

    [5 Feb 2016] The feeding habits of brown bears go from extreme energy consumption during the summer months to a zero energy intake during winter hibernation. In a unique study of free-ranging brown bears, Swedish researchers were able to show that the bears¿ dietary variation goes hand-in-hand with dramatic changes in the animal¿s gut microbiota - a finding that may provide increased knowledge of how the gut microbiota affects our metabolism.

  • Measurment errors in generalized trust surveys can be decreased

    [1 Feb 2016] Generalized trust has been one of the frequently researched attitudes in political and social sciences. Although this type of trust saw its real breakthrough in the theories about social capital, offered by Robert D. Putnam in 1993, the survey measurement was created in the 1940s. Despite this, only a handful of studies evaluate generalized trust from a survey measurement perspective. In his thesis, Sebastian Lundmark, aims to rectify this shortcoming by employing a measurement error perspective to the generalized trust survey question.
