Mice predatory instinct controlled by scientists using optogenetics
Yale University researchers have isolated the predatory instinct neural circuitry in mice. Then, using optogenetic engineering, they were able to selectively activate these neurons. With the laser switched to ‘ON’, “the mice take on qualities of “walkers” from The Walking Dead, pursuing and biting almost anything in their path, including bottle caps and wood sticks.” [...] (Source: Neurobot)

Forget thinking vs. feeling dichotomy. Think/ feel holistic brain functioning
Mental Math and the Fine-Tuning of Emotions (The Dana Foundation) “You often hear the word “calculating” used to describe someone who always seems to act deliberately, guided by reason rather than emotion. The idea behind this characterization is that human nature straddles a deep divide between thinking and feeling, but current research suggests otherwise. Brain-imaging studies, in particular, reveal an overlap between the sites in the brain that make it possible for us to perform mental arithmetic and those that enable us to regulate our emotions. In fact, these two dissimilar-seeming functions are...

To reduce heart disease and stroke risks, regulate stress and improve brain health
In this study, 293 patients were given a combined PET/CT scan to record their brain, bone marrow and spleen activity and inflammation of their arteries. The patients were then tracked for an average of 3.7 years to see if they developed cardiovascular disease… Those with higher amygdala activity had a greater risk of subsequent cardiovascular disease and developed problems sooner than those with lower activity…The authors suggest a possible biological mechanism, whereby the amygdala signals to the bone marrow to produce extra white blood cells, which in turn act on the arteries causing them to develop plaques...
