Engineers develop potential treatment for whooping cough Engineers are making progress on a potential Whooping Cough treatment for vulnerable infants. In preclinical testing conducted on animals, the team demonstrated that their antibodies work as a prophylaxis to provide short-term immunity and as a treatment to accelerate recovery.
Quick thinkers are charismatic Charisma may rely on quick thinking, according to new research. The research shows that people who were able to respond more quickly to general knowledge questions and visual tasks were perceived as more charismatic by their friends, independently of IQ and other personality traits
