The absence of a specific type of neuron in the brain can lead to obesity and diabetes in mice report researchers in The EMBO Journal.

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.

Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
