When it comes to sex and aggression in mice, a cold-sensor tells the brain when “enough is enough!”

Biophysical Society

Researchers at the University of Illinois College of Medicine find that TRPM8, long ago identified as a cold-temperature sensor, regulates aggressive and hypersexual behavior in response to testosterone

Ducks offer researchers a unique opportunity to study human touch

Biophysical Society

Researchers at Yale University gain insights into the mechanics of touch by studying the sensitive skin on ducks’ bills, which they found is similar in some ways to the skin on human palms.

New device mimics beating heart with tiny pieces of heart tissue

Biophysical Society

Researchers at Imperial College London created a bioreactor to allow heart tissue to experience mechanical forces in sync with the beats, like it would in the body, to study the mechanics of healthy and diseased hearts.
