Functional neuroimaging studies suggest that the anterior, mid, and posterior division of the insula subserve different functions in the perception of pain. The anterior insula (AI) has predominantly been associated with cognitive-affective aspects of pain, while the mid and posterior divisions have been implicated in sensory-discriminative processing.

Obesity has become a major worldwide challenge to public health, due to the Western 'obesogenic' environment interacting with a strong genetic contribution1. Recent extensive genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified numerous single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with obesity, but these loci together account for only a small(More)
Gas chromatography (GC) and mass spectrometry (MS) were used to determine the stereoisomeric compositions of 6,10,14-trimethylpentadecan-2-ol and 6,10,14-trimethylpentadecan-2-one in wing extracts from 17 Bicyclus butterfly species from different regions of Africa. All samples were purified using solid phase extraction (SPE). Since some species contained(More)
