Why do people tend to approach a child in distress, but avoid a distressed adult? Searching for clues to complex social behaviors, a team of BC researchers have learned that the brain's insular cortex and the hormone oxytocin play a role. #BCResearch

    The brain's insular cortex, which processes senses and emotions, controls reactions like approach to or avoidance of others through the action of the hormone oxytocin, a team of Boston College researchers reports in the latest edition of the journal Nature Neuroscience.

Earth and Environmental Sciences researcher Paul K. Strother and a team of scientists have discovered evidence that primitive moths and butterflies existed during the Jurassic period, approximately 50 million years before the first flowering plants. Their report, published in Scientific Advances, sheds new light on one of the most confounding cases of co-evolution. Read more in The New York Times:

    Finding the Oldest Fossils of Butterflies Using a Human Nose Hair
    But in analyzing the murky solution they stumbled upon a new mystery: several unknown scales were left behind in the gunk. The team soon discovered that the scales belonged to long extinct relatives of modern butterflies and moths. Mr. van Eldijk was tasked with fishing out more, and for that job he was given a dissection probe with a single nostril hair.
