Scientists take a look at the feel-good benefits of belly dance
Belly dancers have fewer hang-ups about their bodies. Most women who participate in this torso-driven dance do so because it is fun and they get to perform interesting moves -- not because they necessarily feel sexier while doing so. This is the conclusion of Marika Tiggemann of Flinders University in Australia, leader of a study in Springer's journal Sex Roles about the body image of people who belly dance in their free time.

When bots do the negotiating, humans more likely to engage in deceptive techniques
Researchers found that whether humans would embrace a range of deceptive and sneaky negotiating techniques was dependent both on the humans' prior negotiating experience in negotiating as well as whether virtual agents where employed to negotiate on their behalf.

Positive and negative memories and behaviors are split up in the brains of mice
Within the amygdala, an important memory center in the brain, pleasant experiences, tastes, and smells are confined to the back of the basolateral nucleus, while unpleasant ones are stored at the front.

As reported on Oct. 17 in Nature Neuroscience, these opposing neurons in the amygdala are not only physically separated but also genetically distinct. (2016-10-17)

Better research is needed to understand why elders are happier

If we read about someone who is smiling and happy, without realizing it, we smile as well. If, however, the text is not in our mother tongue but in a second language, then our mind and body react in a blander manner. This effect, according to Francesco Foroni, the author of a new study, may depend on the different way we learn our mother tongue and a second language. (2015-09-01)

How do children hear anger?
Even if they don't understand the words, infants react to the way their mother speaks and the emotions conveyed through speech.
