A recent publication in the journal Cell reveals a novel class of oxytocin-responsive neurons involved in the regulation of female social behavior in mice. The ‘love hormone’ oxytocin contributes to social and sex behaviors in humans.
A study published in PLoS ONE is perhaps the first to demonstrate that electrical neurostimulation of the vagus nerve reduces signs of inflammation and disease severity in the collagen-induced arthritis (CIA), a disease model of rheumatoid...

Les flavanols du cacao permettent d’inverser le déclin cognitif lié à l'âge chez les adultes âgés en bonne santé, confirme cette étude de l'Université Columbia. Ces résultats, publiés dans la revue Nature Neuroscience qui renforcent le lien entre une zone spécifique du cerveau, le gyrus denté et le déclin de la mémoire lié à l’âge et soutiennent que cette forme d
A study published in the May 2013 issue of PLoS One may indicate a novel, unrecognized interaction between viruses and the glucocorticoid (GC)-signaling system that results in the induction of interleukin (IL)-10 production by dendritic cells (DCs).
Consider this: In over five million years of human evolution, only one organ has come to exist for the sole purpose of providing pleasure – the clitoris. It is not required for reproduction. It doesn’t have a urethra running through it like the penis, and thus, does not urinate. Its sole function – its singular, wonderful purpose – is to make a woman feel good!!
Sadly, it is precisely because the clitoris has no function apart from female pleasure that science has neglected to study it as intricately as the penis...
A new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) of the USA implicates the transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1)-expressing sensory nerves in the pathogenesis of asthma and/or asthma attacks.
ALTHOUGH no company is mentioned by name, it is very clear which American internet giant the European Parliament has in mind in a resolution that has been doing the rounds in the run-up to a vote on November 27th. One draft calls for “unbundling search engines from other commercial services” to ensure a level playing field for European companies and consumers. This is the latest and most dramatic outbreak of Googlephobia in Europe.
Chronic inflammatory conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), are characterized by continuous pain and RA is the most frequent form of inflammatory joint disease in the United Kingdom  with an estimated economic cost of ~£8bn/year .
Nearly half of our everyday behaviors tend to be repeated in the same location almost every day, according to research out of Duke University. That means most of the time we are running on autopilot.
On average, a habit takes more like 66 days to form, with more intensive habits like doing 50 sit-ups every morning taking around 84 days to form, according to research out of University College of London that Dean references in his book. But these figures will often vary greatly from person to person.
Forming habits that stick isn't about finding a magic number. It's about being aware of your behaviors and environment and their effects on your brain. Here are some steps to get started:
US and European research programmes will begin coordinating research.
It seems a natural pairing, almost like the hemispheres of a human brain: two controversial and ambitious projects that seek to decipher the body's control center are poised to join forces.
The European Union’s €1-billion (US$1.3-billion) Human Brain Project (HBP) and the United States’ $1-billion Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative will launch a collaboration later this year, according to government officials involved in both projects.(...) - by Sara Reardon, Nature, 18 March 2014
