    Not what I thought the subject line was about

    So this is a good thing for women, really.

    while women became more outgoing and showed signs of higher intelligence

    Probably explains why most INXP types like cats so god damned much. They're taking over our minds!

    Very interesting, especially this part.

    Hopefully they do more extensive studies.

    "it can even raise your chances of being knocked down by a car"
    "infected rats lost their aversion to cats and so were more likely to be eaten, thus allowing the parasite to complete its life cycle."
    "found that those infected exhibited altered levels of novelty seeking"

    Infectious parasites and novelty seeking and dopamine, oh my!
    Sounds like they should make a B-grade scifi movie based on this little situation.




    Oh wait. They already have. How could I have forgotten the cinematic delight that was The Happening?

    Actually, this is a typical behavior of parasites. If you read the book "Unto Others", a prime explaning evolutionary mechanisms, you will see that the first paragraph mentions a ants' parasite that modifies their behavior in such a way that they're more likely to be eaten by a cow, where the life-cycle of the host begins.

    This is one of my favourite behaviour-altering parasites.

    Not entirely sure what that meant, but if you want to find a more credible source google Hymenoepimecis
    , which is the name of the wasp. It's true I looked for the most sensationalistic article I could find, but it's still pretty cool even in non-tabloid versions.

    The pork tapeworm is an interesting creature. It was very previlant in geographic areas ooccupied by Arab peoples and probably explains Jewish & Muslim aversion to the pig.
