Link between Facebook Use and Depressive Symptoms

A recent paper published in the Journal of Social & Clinical Psychology suggests that time spent on Facebook may be linked to depressive symptom. The researchers who conducted the study found that this relationship was mediated by social comparisons, our natural inclination to compare ourselves to others when learning about […]

Developments in Quantum Temperature

Developments in Quantum Temperature

It is well known that, on the smallest scales, the laws of physics become very non-intuitive. Particles can tunnel through otherwise impenetrable barriers. They have no position or momentum, in the classical sense. In fact, particles can be described as waves, which exist across a region in space and can […]

Pain Medication May Also Affect Emotions

Pain Medication May Also Affect Emotions

Researchers at the Ohio State University studying the widespread pain reliever acetaminophen recently discovered that the drug can blunt strong emotions, a previously unknown side effect. In their study, the researchers found that participants who took acetaminophen reported less strong reactions when viewing both pleasant and disturbing photographs compared to […]

Smart Grids in the Energy Sector

Smart Grids in the Energy Sector

How does one predict the rises and falls of unpredictable energy consumption? Statisticians dig through data and make predictions based on the past, but engineers take a different approach. By combining electrical and computer engineering, it is possible to develop predictive algorithms based on computing and economics. Associate Professor Fangxing […]

New Measurements May Lead to Rearrangement of Periodic Table

New Measurements May Lead to Rearrangement of Periodic Table

  To many students of chemistry, the Periodic Table of Elements seems to be a monolithic, unchanging pillar of the discipline. However, a recent measurement of the properties of lawrencium (element 103) has rekindled an old controversy regarding its position on the table (1). According to William Jensen, a chemistry […]

Moon Mystery May be Resolved

Moon Mystery May be Resolved

An Israeli-French team of scientists studying the moon at the University of Bordeaux may have at last uncovered the story behind its formation. Previously, most academic circles supported the “giant impact” hypothesis, which conjectured that the moon formed from one of several collisions between asteroids and Earth roughly 4.5 billion […]

DNA is Not the Source of All Inherited Traits

DNA is Not the Source of All Inherited Traits

Although the common knowledge for decades established DNA as the genetic code of life, recent research in the field of epigenetics demonstrates that our DNA sequence does not strictly determine our inherited traits (1). Epigenetics (the study of how external and environmental factors affect the genome) investigates the methylation of […]

Mission Statement

Founded in 1998, the Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science aims to increase scientific awareness within the Dartmouth community by providing an interdisciplinary forum for sharing undergraduate research and enriching scientific knowledge.

Want to join the DUJS staff?

All the undergraduates of Dartmouth College are welcome to join our staff. Our staff includes students interested in writing, editing, photography, graphics, web design, and more! Please contact us to be added to our e-mail list. Staff meetings are Thursday evenings at 8 pm in Carson L02.
