ICYMI: Drone Doctors, Trump Psychology And The Science Of Songs

Health stories you may have missed.

ICYMI Health features what we're reading this week.

This week, we read up medical technology. A new army task force is in charge of improving the mental health of its drone operators, who are essentially shift workers suffering from chronic fatigue and the stigma associated with their profession.

We also tuned in to the story of a mother who tracked down the organs she donated to science when her newborn son passed away days after his birth.

And finally, we took note of a disturbing new trend -- the caffeine inhaler -- that we hope won't stick around for long.

Read on and tell us in the comments: What did you read, listen to and love this week?

People who receive cues that they are powerful are more likely to ignore the opinions of those around them, even though psychology shows that go-it-alone leadership results in worse decision-making.

'Donald Trump and Scott Walker take pride in being their own advisers and not really taking a lot of advice from others.' Larrick offered a similar interpretation: 'One way to kind of exert your power is to stick by your opinions, no matter how wrong they are.'

Thirty percent of women in a new study said that they didn't have enough diapers to change their baby as often as they wanted to, which can lead to health problems for the infant and increased anxiety for the new mom.

My self-esteem plummets. I can’t soothe my baby because I can’t put a clean diaper on my baby.

Murderers with less trustworthy faces are most likely to be sentenced to death.

The more your neutral face resembles a positive emotion, the more likely you are to be seen as trustworthy, and vice versa for negative emotions.

New studies of medical marijuana show that the drug has therapeutic and pain-reduction benefits, but also causes side effects and has the potential for abuse.

Marijuana’s benefits seem to outweigh the potential harms for people who have intractable nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy, or severe and intractable pain from chronic illnesses that won’t respond to other therapies. But people who fall into those categories are not typically the people asking for medical marijuana.

Thirty percent of U.S. army drone operators suffer from extreme stress and fatigue. A new task force hopes to change that.

The mental stress of combat is not decreased with distance.

There's a connection between your taste in music and the way you think.

People who are high in empathy prefer 'mellow' music -- including R&B/soul, adult contemporary and soft rock -- while those with more analytical minds tend to prefer more 'intense' music -- such as punk, heavy metal and hard rock.

When Sarah Gray's son died a few days after being born, she and her husband decided to donate his organs to science. A few years later, Gray contacted the different research organizations that had received his body parts and talked with the scientists who studied them.

Most of the eyes that we get are from people who are older, just because most people are older when they die. Infants' eyes are worth their weight in gold.

A subset of teenagers never grow out of the disagreeableness that's associated with the age cohort.

There is abundant research that suggests that the over-cultivation of self-esteem, that supposedly Golden Ticket to happy youth and adulthood, is actually profoundly harmful to the development of healthy relationships.

From a medical perspective, caffeine inhalers are a really, really bad idea.

While the FDA says it’s continuing to investigate caffeinated products, it may be in your best interest to stick to stimulants that most medical experts can get behind: coffee.
