Building a rap-paw We can bond better with our pet cats by mimicking their body language. Specific ways of slow, cat-like blinking can lead to more positive communication with our feline friends. NIGHT OWLS If you’re awake into the early hours and a late riser, you might already suspect that it isn’t something you can control – and now scientists have proven it. A study by the University of California has found that being a night owl is down to a common genetic variation of a protein called cryptochrome. Like so much in life, being a lark or an owl is all down to genes. THE GUT BRAIN More evidence for the importance of the gut… A new connection between the gut and the brain has been found, proving our hunger hormone also affects memory.…
