Social neuroscience: more friends, more problems…more gray matter?

, : Social neuroscience: more friends, more problems…more gray matter?. Current Biology 22(3): R84-R85

The social brain hypothesis generically posits that increasing social group size relates is associated with an increase in neocortex size. A new study identifies, within a species, the specific neural circuit that may confer the primate ability to manage social relationships as they increase in number.

The expression of S100A6 (calcyclin), a member of the S100 calcium binding protein family, is elevated in a number of malignant tumors, but there have been few reports about its expression in gastric cancer. The aim of this study was to investigat...

Diverse p44 alleles at the p44 expression locus (p44Es) encoding surface-exposed major membrane proteins, P44s, of Anaplasma phagocytophilum were hypothesized to be garnered by recombination to enact antigenic variation. However, this hypothesis h...
