Scientists from Queen Mary, University of London have discovered a new part of the mechanism which allows our body clocks to reset themselves on a molecular level. Circadian clocks regulate the daily fluctuations of many physiological and behavioral aspects in life, and are synchronized with our surrounding environment via light or temperature cycles. Natural changes in the length of the day mean that an animal's circadian clock often has to reset itself on a molecular level, to avoid getting...

Bumblebees choose whether to search for food according to how stocked their nests are, say scientists from Queen Mary, University of London. When bumblebees return to the nest from a successful foraging mission, they produce a pheromone which encourages their nest mates to also go out and find food. Scientists had originally thought that these pheromones elicited a standard response from all bees. But new research from Queen Mary's School of Biological and Chemical Sciences has shown that...
