Happy New Year and welcome to another wild and weird year at Neurotic Physiology! I make no New Year's Resolutions (except those involving eating more bacon, but do I need to make a RESOLUTION for that per se?), but I did want to let you all know what you may have missed!
First and foremost, the amazing Bug Girl came on to my blog to guest post for Friday Weird Science! She took on a post about cockroach sex phermones and woodpeckers (yes, really), to help poor Sci, who's Katsaridaphobia is so bad she couldn't look at the press release.
And Sci herself took on one of the research studies highlighted in Senator Tom Coburn's "Wastebook", on cocaine and the sexual behavior of QUAIL. I think this study is important and useful, and I'll tell you why. And Bora did his own take on the study, talking about why quail in particular is a well used model.
And now it's back to your regular daily science diet! Happy New Year!
