Wanna start an entomology rock band?! After some creative wrapping, these insect nets look more like a giant guitar! Next stop: Lord Howe Island for the @australiangeographic Citizen Scientist Expedition with @pinetreeslodge & @juanita_rodr! 🎸🐝 insta topsy.oneHi everyone! 
My name is Amanda Gonzalez-Bengtsson and I’m excited to be your guest editor for the week. I did my PhD here at Stockholm University as you can see on the diploma. 
The PhD of course required a lot of blood, sweat and tears to finish. But it was also a lot of fun. And above all, it resulted in much more than I ever could’ve imagined. I developed a passion for all sorts of science and I even live my life according to it now. Science guides my love life, health decisions, relationships and how I view the world we live in. I LOVE science and what it can do for us. That’s why I became a science communicator here at Stockholm University. This means I bridge the gap between the general public and scientists. 
I’m also really looking forward to show you how it is behind the scenes of the ceremony for the conferment of doctoral degrees at Stockholm City Hall, where I will be crowned with a laurel wreath on Friday. Stay tuned and have an awesome week! #stockholmuniversity #stockholmsuniversitet #scicomm #phd insta topsy.one@SoapboxSciTO is happening again today!!

WeHow can we record the electric chatter of a whole region of a brain, where thousands of intertwined neurons are engaged in endless conversation? A remarkable recently developed technique, now in use in labs around the world, has brought us a lot closer to solving this problem. The technique, called calcium imaging, relies on the fact that neural activity is highly correlated with how much calcium is present in neurons: whenever a neuron spikes electrically, it needs an influx of calcium before it can spit out neurotransmitters to tell its neighbors it just spiked. It turns out that through clever genetic engineering and chemistry, we can image concentrations of calcium in awake, behaving brains.

.
When basaltic pāhoehoe lava flows reach steep ridges, such as here on the Pali on the SE flanks of Kīlauea, their rheology dramatically changes resulting in these narrow, multi-lobate flows preserved on the crest of the ridge.
.
This really is one of my favorite geology and lava flow pictures. It just shows how chaotic and beautiful nature can be!

(Docs in the UK donToday in the mammal diversity lab we are teaching students about monotremes and metatherians.

One of the metatherians (or marsupials) being featured is that most charismatic of North American creatures: the noble opossum.

The Virginia opossum (Didelphis virginiana) is the only marsupial found in Canada or the US. The occasionally (and in my opinion wrongly) maligned opossum is a plucky opportunist that manages to scrap itMonotremes, such as the platypus (📸1) and echidna (📸2+3) are some of the most unusual mammals in the world, and today I get to teach my students about them and the other (mostly) Australian mammals, marsupials!

The platypus looks like a hoax, but I promise itHornbills (have you ever seen one whooshing above you?) are found only in tropical Asia and in the sub-saharan Africa!

There are 32 species in Asia while Africa has 25 species.

India is endowed with a whooping 9 incredible species of hornbills including the Narcondam hornbill found only in the remote Narcondam Island in the Andaman Sea.

Come to the next Cafe Oikos talk by Rohit Naniwadekar to find out why hornbills are so important to our forests.
