We're Hardwired to See Spiders

Thumbnail
The spider's iconic leggy shape can abruptly yank our attention, even when we’re focused on something else, according to a new study. Other shapes such as houseflies and hypodermic needles don’t draw our attention in the same way. This suggests that spiders may be hardwired into our visual systems, helping us avoid a threat that our ancestors faced for millions of years.

Infographic: Light-activated Drug May Aid Diabetes Meds

Thumbnail
Diabetes drugs that promote the release of insulin from the pancreas can, in some cases, cause side effects because of their actions on other organs such as the brain and heart. Now, scientists have created a drug for type 2 diabetes that is switched on by blue light, which they hope will improve treatment of the disease.
