When Do Newborns First Feel Cold?

University of Southern California (USC)

Laboratory mouse study suggests that cold sensing develops well after birth. Cold sensing neural circuits in newborn mice take around two weeks to become fully active. The finding adds to understanding of the cold sensing protein TRPM8 (pronounced trip-em-ate), and suggests possible biological basis of cold sensing in humans.

Crayfish Brain May Offer Rare Insight into Human Decision Making

University of Maryland, College Park

Crayfish make surprisingly complex, cost-benefit choices, finds a University of Maryland study -opening up a new line of research to help unravel the cellular brain activity involved in human decisions. It concludes crayfish are a practical way to identify the neural circuitry and chemistry of decision making. No direct way exists to do this in primates.
