Topic: why women cry more than men?

i think that environmental factors also play a huge role in determinig whether or not men cry.

Some men actually do force in their tears because of the general opinion that men ought not to cry.

But anyways, yes, the hormonal cycle in women does make them more emotional than men.

I think depolymerisation is the removal of the monomers, in this case the removal of the monomers of microtubules. If I am not mistaken, some people believe that during anaphase of the cell cycle, the kinetochore of the chromosome depolymerises the microtubules so as to move to opposite ends of the ...

I think that for those who felt an increase in their hertbeat and a panic-feeling when the handphone was placed near your chest - it was not caused by handphone radiation, but rather it was caused by placing an object to close to your chest. I always get that feeling when an object, including a hand...

Human Embryonic Cervical cells

I am currently doing a research project which involves the use of mammalian cells and as such we are using cultured Human Embryonic Cervical (HEC) cells. I have not found that much information regarding HEC cells. If anyone knows anything about them, please post here. I would especially like to know...

I did an experiment before involving restriction digestion, ligation and transformation and I had expected many colonies to form but only 1 did. Then my mentor told me (after much thinking) that this most probably occured because the restriction enzyme I used was very inefficient and may not have cu...

Hi opuntia, so i guess i ought not be suprised if one day if i see that my plant has disappeared! :lol:

So anyway, yes maybe the butterfly has a special way of detecting. I also think that maybe the plant releases a kind of scent that only the butterflies can detect. What do you guys think of that?

Just before my Cycas revoluta began to sprout a set of new leaves, the butterflies started coming and began laying eggs. Isn't it amazing that the butterflies know that new leaves are coming out before there is any visible evidence. Can anyone explain this phenomenon?
