How science has shifted our sense of identity

Across the arc of the past 150 years, we can see both science and scientism shaping human identity in many ways. Developmental psychology zeroed in on the intellect, leading to the transformation of IQ (intelligence quotient) from an educational tool into a weapon of social control. Immunology redefined the ‘self’ in terms of ‘non-self’. Information … Continue reading How science has shifted our sense of identity

New DNA ‘clock’ could help measure development in young children

Scientists have developed a molecular "clock" that could reshape how paediatricians measure and monitor childhood growth and potentially allow for an earlier diagnosis of life-altering development disorders. The research, published this week in PNAS, (Full Study) describes how the addition of chemical tags to DNA over time can potentially be used to screen for developmental differences … Continue reading New DNA ‘clock’ could help measure development in young children
