Finding it and Perfuming the Mind


Microbes Effect on the Brain Excerpt: In flies with a particular microbe, they only want to mate with others who have that microbe. This occurs because of a smell from the microbe. In groups of hyenas, groups identify their social…

Food odors and chemosignals in body odor

social interaction and brain

A Sniff of Happiness Excerpt: We observed that exposure to body odor collected from senders of chemosignals in a happy state induced a facial expression and perceptual-processing style indicative of happiness in the receivers of those signals. Our findings suggest…

How our NOSE shaped the human race: Ancestors lost their ability to detect sex pheromones to make men more faithful – and create the stable family unit Excerpt: “Our sense of smell evolved to make human pheromones undetectable” For contrast…

Olfaction, ecology, and intelligence


“I should think we might fairly gauge the future of biological science, centuries ahead by estimating the time it will take to reach a complete comprehensive understanding of odor. It may not seem a profound enough problem to dominate all…

Hiding things about neo-Darwinism

Genetic code

Biologists devise invasion plan for mutations Excerpt:  “…researchers describe a technique for creating mutations that invade the genome and transmit themselves across to the next generation with near 100% success, defying the classic laws of Mendelian genetics.” My comment: Placed…

Modeling conserved microRNA expression

translocated chromosome

Insects as models to study the epigenetic basis of disease Excerpt: “…selected insects can be used as models for human diseases with an epigenetic component because the underlying molecular mechanisms (DNA methylation, histone acetylation and the expression of microRNAs) are…

The life cycle of an mRNA in a eukaryotic cell RNA is transcribed in the nucleus processing, it is transported to the cytoplasm and translated by the ribosome. Finally the mRNA is degraded

Another companion domain has been added to the;, collection Intro to topics/catagories at Information that links physics, chemistry, and molecular epigenetics from ecological variation to ecological adaptations via RNA-mediated events, such as the de novo creation…
