Sex and smell -- Adam's nose
Exploitation of the rich food resources of Africa's grasslands required our ancestors to live communally to obtain the benefits of collaborative hunting. The threat to family structure caused by the close proximity of un-partnered males was greatly reduced when a genetic mutation disabled the part of the sense of smell that detects sex pheromones. The resulting privatization of sex strengthened the pair-bond, and enabled the gradual development of our species' rich perfume and incense culture.

Discover the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics in this newly published book
The book gives a self-contained treatment of the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics, assuming only the mathematical sophistication usually acquired in undergraduate mathematics or physics education. The principles of quantum mechanics are discussed with complete mathematical accuracy and an effort is always made to trace them back to the experimental reality that lies at their root. The statistical aspects of quantum mechanics are compared and contrasted with the same aspects of classical physics.
New book on glia from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press
'Glia,' published by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, examines our understanding of the basic biology of glia and their roles in diseases such as Alzheimer's and cancer.
