'Personality-gene' makes songbirds curious

... B, 2 May 2007). There is already evidence that variations (polymorphisms) in neurotransmitter-related genes are associated with personality differences among humans. Research from the last decade suggested a promising link between the Drd4-gene and the trait curiosity (novelty-seeking). Scientists from the ...

Gene malfunctions cause schizophrenia, depression symptoms in mice

... The researchers' theory was that different mutant variations of DISC1 might have different pathological effects. To test this theory, the researchers screened a large population of mouse mutants to isolate two with different mutations in DISC1. They found that, indeed, one of the mutant mouse strains exhibi...

Genetic roots of bipolar disorder revealed by first genome-wide study of illness

Do fruit flies have free will?

...nction in the fly brain which leads to spontaneous variations in fly behavior" Sugihara said. "The results of our analysis indicate a mechanism which might be common to many other animals and could form the biological foundation for what we experience as free will". Our subjective notion of "Free Will" is an...

In obesity, brain becomes 'unaware' of fat

..., body weight is relatively constant despite large variations in daily food intake and energy expenditure, Cowley explained. Energy balance is regulated by neural and hormonal signals that are integrated in the brain. Leptin sends signals to the brain about the body’s fat reserves, modifying appetite and ene...
