If you've been trying to decide if you should take the advice of your friends-- wait three days.
New research finds that peer pressure really only affects us for that long. To find this, researchers asked a group of men to rate 280 female faces. After rating, the men were shown the average ratings given to each face by the entire group. Then the men were asked to re-rate each face again after one day, three days, one week or three months.
Researchers found that the individuals' initial judgments could be altered by others' opinions in the first three days, but after that they stuck by their original assessment. Researchers say, "Our findings suggest that because the social-conformity effect last several days, it reflects a short-term change in privately held views rather than a transient public [opinion]."

Researchers say, "What this is suggesting is that when girls, specifically, are seeing their parents enacting a traditional division of labor at home, it may be limiting their own ambition."

To find this, researchers studied a number of married couples, and found those who had mismatched levels of self-control were more likely to become fat and fall into debt. On the other hand, couples who were matched had impressive levels of self-control, ate healthy diets and saved their money.

There may be a scientific breakthrough that will change the way that doctors treat pain.
Researchers at Duke University have developed highly specialized antibodies that can dull the pain response by acting directly on neurons.
In studies with mice, the researchers found that the treatment was effective and didn’t produce any obvious side effects. This new drug could possibly eliminate the need for opiates that can be highly addictive. Duke is pursuing additional funding to patent the antibody and begin clinical trials for future pharmaceutical use in humans.
