What Happened to the Sun over 7,000 Years Ago? Analysis of tree rings reveals highly abnormal solar activity in the mid-Holocene
7-February-2017

By analyzing the level of a carbon isotope in tree rings from a specimen of an ancient bristlecone pine, a team led by Nagoya University researchers has revealed that the sun exhibited a unique pattern of activity in 5480 BC.

New Insights into Brain Circuit for Hunger Responses during Starvation -Researchers uncover mechanism by which hypothalamic neural signaling drives hunger responses to survive starvation-
26-January-2017

Nagoya University-led researchers showed that hunger-driven neural signaling in the hypothalamus activates inhibitory reticular neurons in the medulla oblongata to reduce metabolism and promote feeding and chewing under starving conditions. Abnormal activation of these medullary reticular neurons may promote pathological changes leading to obesity.
