Science on Google+449,544Please join us for Developmental Science HOA, a new collaborative Hangout On Air series which is co-hosted by +Science on Google+ and +Developmental Psychology. In the first Developmental Science HOA we will be talking with Dr. +Gedeon Deák. +Gedeon Deák is a Professor of Cognitive Science and Human Development at +University of California, San Diego and is the director of the +Cognitive Development Laboratory at UC-San Diego. +Gedeon Deák studies the dynamics of infant social interactions and social learning, using experimental behavioral paradigms, ethnographic investigations, physiological studies, and computer simulations. He and his collaborators conducted the first study of real-time interactions between parents and toddlers with high-density EEG and motion capture of both participants. He also studies how children learn and use words, and how they flexibly shift their attention, representations, and inferences.Important LinksCurriculum Vitae: http://goo.gl/qLtUaCLab Website: http://goo.gl/AQ78h6ResearchGate: http://goo.gl/Mj8deHRelevant PapersWatch the hands: infants can learn to follow gaze by seeing adults manipulate objects: http://goo.gl/bSMzKyYoung children’s fast mapping and generalization of words, facts, and pictograms :http://goo.gl/nhykZFA Unified Account of Gaze Following: http://goo.Developmental Science HOA: Episode 12014-08-05 18:00:00101

Chris Robinson9,283Science Circle- Updated 12/2Many science-minded individuals have added their contact information to this Public Science Circle: http://goo.gl/X3PFl. I separated the active and inactive members, put the active members into a science circle, and I am sharing this circle. As you can see by viewing the database (http://goo.gl/K7QYK), we are a diverse group but we all share a common interest- SCIENCE! The three things that I like about this circle are: (a) the content, (b) self-selection- people added themselves to the circle and (c) it's somewhat transparent. Unlike many of the shared circles on Google+ where you do not know what you are getting until you import the circle, you can quickly get a glimpse of this circle by looking at the database.Please feel free to share this circle with your Science-minded friends.

If you are a photographer, post a science related image and explain why it relates to science to you. If you are not a photographer, simply post anything related to science. We had some great posts last week and a lot of interesting discussion. I look forward to more this week! +Allison Sekuler and myself will be curating this theme each Sunday.2011-11-13 15:01:524216319

The Chemical Behind Catnip's Effects on Cats

CATNIP: EGRESS TO OBLIVION?

- 4aα,7α,7aα-Nepetalactone is the specific isomer responsible for the catnip effect

☠ Firstly, nepetalactone will enter the cat’s nasal tissue, and there it will bind to certain receptors.

☠ These can then trigger particular sensory neurons to signal to other neurons, and eventually the brain; in particular, the ‘olfactory bulb’, a region at the front of the brain responsible for processing smells.

☠ This region then signals other regions of the brain, including the amygdala, responsible for emotional responses to stimuli, and the hypothalamus, responsible for behavioural responses to stimuli.

☠ This results in the observed response in cats – a response that is actually similar to their response to natural sexpheromones.

The Chemical Behind Catnip's Effects on Cats

CATNIP: EGRESS TO OBLIVION?

- 4aα,7α,7aα-Nepetalactone is the specific isomer responsible for the catnip effect

☠ These can then trigger particular sensory neurons to signal to other neurons, and eventually the brain; in particular, the ‘olfactory bulb’, a region at the front of the brain responsible for processing smells.

☠ This region then signals other regions of the brain, including the amygdala, responsible for emotional responses to stimuli, and the hypothalamus, responsible for behavioural responses to stimuli.

☠ This results in the observed response in cats – a response that is actually similar to their response to natural sex pheromones.

☠ The effect of catnip lasts for around ten minutes, and afterwards there will be a refractory period of around an hour where the cat will remain unaffected.

☠ Interestingly, not all cats are affected by catnip; the response is genetic, and autosomal dominant, which means if one parent passes on the gene, then the offspring will inherit the response.

So awesome.

I've seen some cleverly carved pumpkins before, but these amazing pumpkin carvings by Ray Villafane elevates tradition into the realm of art. Born into a poor farming family, he found himself having to whittle his own toys out of wood for his amusement. He eventually had to turn to pumpkins as his medium of choice when even that became too exorbitant. Luckily his early trials also honed his artistic skills to the point where he's able to bring out shockingly realistic scenes and faces out of mere pumpkins. Jump past the break to see more examples of his wonderful pumpkin art, just make sure you haven't had lunch yet. Some of them are too realistic ;)
