When Our World Turns ‘Upside-Down,’ Serotonin Helps Us Deal With Itby Neuroscience News [image: Image shows the structre of a serotonin molecule.]Researchers analyse the role serotonin plays in reward and learning. And then, something happened which the team had not been expecting: right after the rules were changed, there was a second serotonin spike. According to the authors, this increase in the neurons’ activity is exclusively due to the “surprise effect” brought about by the sudden reversal of the environmental conditions with which the mice are familiar – and not to any predic... mais »

neurotransmitter fashionby tomstafford A graph of scientific articles published per year which mention four major neurotransmitters in their title: What I take from this is - Dopamine is king! And with great popularity, comes great misrepresentation. - What happened to glutamate research in the mid 1990s? - The recent hype about oxytocin doesn't seem to be driven by a spike in the primary literature. - Nor does the hype about serotonin. Yes, publications increase on this neurotransmitter, but not compared to glutamate. And most people haven't heard about gluta... mais »

Find Your Birthday Hidden in Pi Chris Wilson Updated: 7:14 AM Hora | Originally published: 7:00 AM Hora March 14 is recognized across the math world as Pi Day, thanks to the resemblance of the date "3/14" to the first three digits of mathematics' most famous constant. While not an official federal holiday, Pi Day was enshrined by the House of Representatives in a ceremonial 2009 vote. Of course, the number Pi goes beyond "3.14" and never ends. There are all sorts of interesting patterns concealed in the first few trillion digits, give or take, but there is no constant rule governing th... mais »
