Researchers have identified a novel neural circuit that detects male pheromone cues pertaining to inter-male aggression.
Study looks at the psychology and neurobiology of attraction and love.
Darcin, a sex pheromone named after Jane Austen's famous Mr. Darcy, alters cells in the brain's emotional center of female mice, giving them the power to assess sexual readiness and help with mate selection.
ESP22, a substance found in a baby's tears, makes female mice more likely to reject male sexual advances, researchers report.
In fruit flies, the need to sleep is overridden by the need to mate, a new study reports.
Modifying genes essential for sensing pheromones in ants resulted in the insects' displaying deficiencies in social behaviors and reduced ability to survive within a colony.
A new study provides evidence that population density changes how individuals act.
Researchers report that by manipulating a male mouse's living conditions and exposing them to female scents for long periods of time, they lose neurons that detect pheromones and interest in wooing females.
A new study explores how a the neural circuitry of a fly assesses the sutability of a potential mate.
According to a new study, researchers have identified the neural circuit in the brain of fruit flies which is responsible for detecting a taste pheromone.
