Abordando el Aislamiento Social y la Depresión entre Mujeres Inmigrantes Mexicanas

Abordando el Aislamiento Social y la Depresión entre Mujeres Inmigrantes Mexicanas

Una gran cantidad de mujeres mexicanas sufren aislamiento y depresión después de llegar como inmigrantes a los Estados Unidos. Son particularmente vulnerables en el caso de carecer de conexiones sociales o una red de apoyo en su nuevo entorno. Un grupo inovador de investigación de la Universidad de Nuevo Mexico ha desarrollado una prometedora iniciativa llamada “Tertulias”,que ayuda a mejorar la salud mental y el bienestar de las mujeres inmigrantes.

Professor Toni Miles | Why Understanding Bereavement Matters

Professor Toni Miles | Why Understanding Bereavement Matters

Professor Toni Miles has dedicated her research efforts to measuring bereavement and its impact on population health. Individual experience with bereavement is commonplace, but we know little about its impact on society when there is an instantaneous experience by a large number of individuals, i.e., mass bereavement. To measure its occurrence, her research with colleagues first confirmed that bereavement can be effectively measured in population surveys. Professor Miles argues that we should use such approaches to deliver interventions aiming to reduce the negative consequences of bereavement on individuals. By measuring bereavement in communities, these data become a cost-effective way to increase resilience, reduce demands on healthcare systems, and enhance public safety.

Dr Omar Islam | Portable Magnetic Resonance Imaging: An Important Innovation

Dr Omar Islam | Portable Magnetic Resonance Imaging: An Important Innovation

Imaging technologies are vital in modern medicine and have revolutionised how clinicians make diagnoses and monitor disease progression. However, the necessary equipment – such as a scanner for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) – is very large and expensive, requiring patients to go to the scanner rather than receiving scans as bedside care. This takes up valuable staff time and resources, and can present further risks to patients. Dr Omar Islam from Queen’s University and Drs Aditya Bharatha and Amy Lin from the University of Toronto are showing how portable MRI scanners may offer a viable alternative that benefits patients and healthcare systems.

Dr Timothy Beers | Mapping the Galaxy’s Stellar Populations Using Large Photometric and Astrometric Surveys

Dr Timothy Beers | Mapping the Galaxy’s Stellar Populations Using Large Photometric and Astrometric Surveys

Astronomers often use spectroscopic (electromagnetic radiation) data and astrometric (motion and positional) data to develop working models describing our Galaxy. Dr Timothy Beers from the University of Notre Dame and his collaborators in Korea and China combined large photometric (visible light) surveys and astrometric data to create multidimensional maps of a large part of the Galaxy. By highlighting significant inhomogeneities in stellar-chemical compositions, motions, and spatial distributions, Dr Beers and his colleagues provide valuable insights into how we can advance our understanding of the formation and evolution of our Galaxy.

Scientia Issue #148 | New Horizons in Research and Discovery

In our continued mission of connecting science and society, this issue of Scientia showcases some of the most exciting advances and achievements in understanding and confronting global challenges. Disease, poverty, war, inequality, and climate change are just some of the key concerns this issue’s featured researchers address.

We showcase research and discovery across fields spanning the Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Life Sciences & Biology, Physical Sciences & Mathematics, Medical & Health Sciences, and Psychology & Neuroscience. Collectively, the articles presented across these themed sections provide a powerful reminder that we can change our world for the better. And that by opening new horizons across diverse research fields and disciplines, we can drive a brighter future for all.

Scientia Issue #147 | Driving Positive Change Through Research and Innovation

Scientia Issue #147 | Driving Positive Change Through Research and Innovation

This inspiring issue celebrates the work of researchers who are driving positive change for the future across diverse disciplines.

The Earth and Environment section highlights important conservation and climate modelling developments. In Physical Science, Engineering and Technology, we focus on collaboration and education, and in Psychology and Neuroscience, we concentrate on child and adolescent mental health. Our Health and Medicine section presents several key advances in clinical research and our Article of the Year, A Quest for Zero Heart Attacks, which features the incredible work of Professor Gemma Figtree.

Finally, our stimulating social sciences and humanities section provides serious food for thought on topics ranging from economics and capitalism to insights into the history of science journalism.

Lisa Smith – Timothy Frankenberger | Building Resilience in Ethiopia’s Drylands: Evaluating Programme Impacts

Lisa Smith – Timothy Frankenberger | Building Resilience in Ethiopia’s Drylands: Evaluating Programme Impacts

Developing countries face increasingly destructive crises, including climate, economic, political and health shocks. To improve quality of life and encourage further international development, it is imperative to improve resilience in communities. In recent research, Lisa Smith and Timothy Frankenberger at TANGO International evaluated a programme which aimed to increase resilience among pastoralists and agro-pastoralists in the drylands of Ethiopia. Their discussion includes important recommendations for the design of future programmes.

Dr Susan Kennedy | Understanding Substance Abuse in College Students

Dr Susan Kennedy | Understanding Substance Abuse in College Students

Substance abuse in college students is a particular concern. Dr Susan Kennedy, Department of Psychology at Denison University in Ohio, USA, recently led a collaboration with colleagues from the Ohio State University and Kenyon College to explore alcohol and drug use in college students. More specifically, Dr Kennedy and the team wanted to identify at-risk groups and promote student well-being.

Revolutionise Your Reading Experience with Scientia’s New Innovative Article Design

Discover a new era in science communication with Scientia’s groundbreaking new article layout and design format. Our journey, starting with a print science communication magazine, evolved in 2014 with the introduction of a digital version. The goal was to enhance accessibility and reach a broader audience. In response to the overwhelming demand for digital content and environmental concerns, we took the bold step of transitioning exclusively to publishing via a digital magazine in 2020 – a move that proved highly successful.
