Social contact-seeking behavior and loneliness in the brain


Levels of the peptide amylin in the brain are related to loneliness; activating amylin neurons in the MPOA drives isolated mice to seek social contact.

Low-protein diet changes sperm and health of future offspring


Low-protein diets in male mice alter sperm and result in offspring that have metabolic problems like diabetes in adulthood.

Running away from carbon dioxide: the terminal connection


Even fish want to avoid carbon dioxide. Now we know that they can because of chemosensation and the Terminal Nerve.

Brain wave synchrony can predict memory age


The degree of neuronal synchrony between the anterior cingulate cortex and the hippocampus during recall is an indication of memory age (in mice).

Solar cells you can put in the wash


Scientists have developed ultra-thin photovoltaic solar cells that can be incorporated into fabric and even washed.

Are you “at risk” of being a habitual coffee drinker?
