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.oneIt has been said that storytelling is one of the most powerful ways to put ideas into the world and that stories themselves are a communal currency of humanity....

WeHuuuge thank you to these two brilliant women for showing me around the @fieldmuseum insect collection! Chicago has been such a fun city to explore, and seeing all of these incredible research specimens from around the world made it all the more special. insta topsy.oneMonday motivation and coffee 💪🏼☕️
.
🙏🏼 Thank all for the kind words and support you gave me last week when I shared with you how frustrated I was about my first year of PhD. You definitely gave me that extra push I needed 😍So, I think you deserve an update.
.
In research, for every experiment its controls are used to compare with our actual experiment. As “positive control” we use something we know it definitely works in that experiment, and as a “negative control” something that we know doesn’t.
.
Imagine your trying out a new brand of flour to bake a cake. To make sure the difference is in the flour, you would have to bake 3 cakes. 🎂 One with the new brand of flour, 🎂one with the flour you usually buy and you know it makes good cake (positive control), and 🎂 one without flour (negative control). This would help you to show that the recipe works and whether one flour is better than the other 😋
.
What happened last week was something like that. I was using as positive control, a protein that was recently discovered to interact with my other protein. This time I not only used that, but also a “stronger” positive control, which is known for ages to interact.
.
So, for the first time I had some positive results, but the feeling was bittersweet. The control experiment went well, but in my actual experiment: still nothing. I finally baked that cake, but not with the flour I was suppose to.
.
This means that the experiment is working well, but my proteins seem to not interact. This interaction was the core of all my PhD and all the other questions were tied to this big one. So now what? 🙄
.
I spent a terrible week thinking about that, but after a big meeting with my supervisor everything seemed better. There are so many questions to answer, that I shouldn’t worry and get stuck on this. Now, I have to go back to reading a lot and try to get some ideas out of it, which is my favourite part of research and thus I am happy to do it.
.
Chin up and let’s work! ☺️

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. ThatWanna start an entomology rock band?!

Onboard the International Space Station, water floats like bubbles or spheres. However, the water will cling to a surface until it is dislodged. This means that tears start to form bubbles around your eyes as the weightless environment is not causing your tears to fall. insta topsy.one@nobleresearchinstitute research assistant Kenny Word carefully adjusts the drill planting depth after sowing a test plot.
