Slowing the body slows down time (perception)

Rose De Kock, Weiwei Zhou, Wilsaan Joiner & Martin Wiener
Interval timing is a fundamental component of action, and is interestingly susceptible to motor-related temporal distortions. Several experiments have shown that temporal expansion and compression can occur in systematic ways with modifications of movement direction, speed, and length. These studies have largely shown that movement biases temporal estimates, but have primarily considered self-modulated movement only. However, real-world encounters often include situations in which movement is restricted or perturbed by environmental factors. Thus, in the following...

Stress in paradise: effects of elevated corticosterone on immunity and avian malaria resilience in a Hawaiian passerine

Vertebrates confronted with challenging environments often experience an increase in circulating glucocorticoids, which result in morphological, physiological, and behavioral changes that promote survival. However, chronically elevated glucocorticoids can suppress immunity, which may increase susceptibility to disease. Since the introduction of avian malaria to Hawaii a century ago, low elevation populations of Hawaii Amakihi (Chlorodrepanis virens) have undergone strong selection by avian malaria and evolved increased resilience (the ability to recover from infection), while populations at...

Variation in immunity and health in response to introduced avian malaria in an endemic Hawaiian songbird

Gabrielle Names, Elizabeth Schultz, Thomas Hahn, Kathleen Hunt, Frederic Angelier, Cécile Ribout & Kirk Klasing
Emerging infectious diseases are spreading at unprecedented rates and affecting wildlife worldwide, with particularly strong effects on islands. Since the introduction of avian malaria to Hawaii a century ago, the disease has contributed to the decline and extinction of several endemic Hawaiian honeycreeper species. At low elevation, where avian malaria is prevalent, Hawaii Amakihi (Chlorodrepanis virens) honeycreeper populations have experienced strong selection by the disease and have evolved increased malaria resilience, the ability to recover...
