By definition, comparative physiology is broad, spanning a variety of animal taxa occurring in diverse environmental settings, and studied at many levels of biological organization (from molecular physiology to physiological ecology). This breadth ...

'Lucy' with Scarlett Johansson won't stretch your brain capacity, review says - KTRK-TV

KTRK-TV
The more relevant question, though, is how much of your own brain you should use when watching "Lucy" - a truly bizarre if often entertaining romp through, hmm, well, neuroscience, biochemistry, anthropology and basically the entire human experience, ...

A small group of nerve cells in the fish brain control swim posture - Medical Xpress

Medical Xpress
For a long time, neurobiologists have been trying to find out how neuronal networks control both animal and human behaviour. In this context, there is controversy as to whether the brain's organisation is decentralised as opposed to modular. In ...
