I love interaction and scientific dicussion. Never be afraid to ask me questions. I may not have the answer, but I'll be damned if I haven't learned how to do a good, quick Google Scholar search to find out.
In addition I like to look at non-science related cute animal pictures, art and funny comics too :)
Hope you enjoy my blog but please, feel free to leave suggestions for improvement!
"Chemicals control our thoughts. Calcium, for example, regulates the signals that zip along miles of nerve cells – neurons – to and from the brain. ‘Waves’ of calcium signalling are tell-tale signs of healthy brain activity, but they’re often difficult to detect inside living tissues. Pictured here, neurons in a mouse brain are lit up witha fluorescent calcium sensor (green) – the result of a type of genetic modification, inserting manmade DNA into the mouse’s genome without harming the rest of its genes. As the healthy mouse develops, the fluorescent sensor (together with a red marker) can be used to map activity in important brain regions like the hippocampus (pictured). Calcium measurements in different parts of the brain also reveal details about how mammalian senses work – such as inside the olfactory bulb, where neurons fizzle into life in response to smells from the outside world.”

Description: This week I made an animated chart of butterflies! These are all butterflies that you can find throughout North America, and I picked the 42 that I thought were the most colorful and unique.
