9/25 Morning Communiqué

THESE DAYS

San Francisco, New York, Washington, and other big cities are keeping bluegills—also known as sunfish or bream—in tanks constantly replenished with water from the municipal supply, and sensors in each tank work around the clock to register changes in the breathing, heartbeat and swimming patterns that occur in the presence of toxins.

Researchers say they have identified an "on-off" switch in the brain that controls the emotional response to fear, and said it might some day be manipulated to help patients with anxiety disorders.
