Predicting Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ) from the Systemizing Quotient-Revised (SQ-R) and Empathy Quotient (EQ)
AQ score was successfully predicted from EQ and SQ-R scores, and the weak but significant negative correlation may indicate a trade-off between them. Expand
Development of short forms of the Empathy Quotient (EQ-Short) and the Systemizing Quotient (SQ-Short)
Abstract The empathizing–systemizing (E–S) theory has been tested using the Empathy Quotient (EQ) and the Systemizing Quotient (SQ). The present study tested n  = 1761 students with theseExpand
Collective evolution and the genetic code.
A dynamical theory for the evolution of the genetic code is presented, which accounts for its universality and optimality and is illustrated by using a simplified computer model and placed within the context of a sequence of transitions that early life may have made, before the emergence of vertical descent.

Biology's next revolution
Free-living marine microbes, unlike their lab-grown 'clonal' cousins, are adept at acquiring useful characteristics from a shared pool of genetic material. Expand
The microbiome of the chicken gastrointestinal tract
A reinvigorated movement in systems biology offers a renewed promise in obtaining a more complete understanding of chicken gastrointestinal microbiome dynamics and their contributions to increasing productivity, food value, security, and safety as well as reducing the public health impact of raising production animals.

Simple viscous flows: From boundary layers to the renormalization group
The seemingly simple problem of determining the drag on a body moving through a very viscous fluid has, for over 150 years, been a source of theoretical confusion, mathematical paradoxes, andExpand
Empathizing and systemizing in males, females and autism: A test of the neural competition theory
Sex differences exist in empathizing (females showing a stronger drive than males), and this contrasts with sex differences in systemizing (males showing a stronger drive). Systemizing occurs whenExpand
Automated monitoring reveals extreme interindividual variation and plasticity in honeybee foraging activity levels
Radio frequency identification technology is used to monitor honeybee flight behaviour automatically and generate lifetime flight activity records for large numbers of individuals from multiple colonies to demonstrate that elitism in insect societies can arise as the extreme of a stable spectrum of individual behavioural activity that allows the colony to respond easily to unexpected needs rather than relying on responses of a rigidly defined subgroup of workers.

Diet and exercise orthogonally alter the gut microbiome and reveal independent associations with anxiety and cognition
BackgroundThe ingestion of a high-fat diet (HFD) and the resulting obese state can exert a multitude of stressors on the individual including anxiety and cognitive dysfunction. Though many studiesExpand
