Fly on the wall
If you’re wondering how fruit fly research could be useful for humans, you are not alone. I started this blog to introduce fly science to a broader audience. I hope to make current research in flies more approachable to non-fly-scientists, as well as demonstrate how basic research in this animal model is translatable to higher organisms, including humans. I will also write about my experiences working in a fly lab so you can get an idea of a ‘day in the life’ of a researcher and her flies. This blog contains three types of posts: Fly Life: What’s it like to work with flies? I’ll go into detail about the flies themselves, how researchers perform different types of experiments, and how various genetic tools work. Breaking research: I’ll summarize recently published original research articles that are advancing our basic scientific understanding. Translational findings: I’ll provide examples of how research in fruit flies has translated to mammalian systems, including those of humans.

Sexual Fantasies: Threesomes Are Normal, Golden Showers Not So Much
Fantasizing about sex with two women is common but fantasizing about being urinated on - called a golden shower - is not. That's just one of the findings from a research project on sexual deviation undertaken by scholars at Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal and Institut Philippe-Pinel de Montréal. Deviant sexual fantasies are addressed in numerous speculations and conjectures by psychologists but atypical fantasies (paraphilias) are so subjective they […]

Halloween: the science of cashing in | Dean Burnett
Halloween is increasingly popular, so you can expect to see countless articles, adverts, TV shows, product offers and more all themed around it, even if the association is extremely tenuous. Why does this happen? And isnt this article just another blatant example of it? Yes, yes it is.Its Halloween again. It feels like its only been a year since this blog last clumsily tried to combine science and Halloween in a desperate bid to gain extra traffic from the fleeting society-wide interest in […]
