This CEO Is Pushing a Pill For Female Sex Drive. But Does the Science Hold Up?

There are two schools of thought about pink. One is that it is the color of bubble gum and Barbie. Cindy Eckert’s view is that it is the color of business. It is a dominant presence at the offices of her Raleigh, N.C., venture-capital firm, the Pink Ceiling, a fund that advertises its main goal as “to make women really f-cking rich.” It’s an even more dominant presence on Eckert, who defies people to observe the taboo on assessing anyone–especially a woman–by their clothes. She wears some hue of pink every working day, accessorized with hot pink nails, lipstick and shoes. Even her hair seems to have a fuchsia sheen. In the pharmaceutical circles in which Eckert operates, among the white coats and the navy suits, that shade of pink invites judgment. And underestimation. She is fine with that.

In August 2015, when she was Ci...

Authors: Pu M, Wang X, Zhang J Abstract An increasing body of research has focused on the functions of the glutamate receptor ionotropic kainate 4 (GRIK4) gene in treatment for depression, memory, as well as neurodegenerative diseases. It is widely recognized that major depressive disorder (MDD) patients often display cognitive dysfunctions, which do not strictly correlate with the severity of depressive symptoms, and in some individuals persist after clinical remission. However, little is known regarding the particular role of GRIK4 in cognitive functions of patients suffering from a MDD. The current study therefo...
