Baby Macaque Rides Wild Boar

A baby monkey continues to attract visitors at a zoo in Japan after it started riding the back of its boar pal. The little Japanese macaque, known as Miwa-chan, has been witnessed by more than 11million people online who have watched videos of the monkey saddled-up on the back Uribo, one of the wild boars at the Fukuchiyama Zoo near Kyoto. The pair, who are looked after by vet Akihiro Nihonmatsu, have become so popular that they have their own book based on their life as friends, written by Akihiro.” w/ photos

A Cure For Depression?

People suffering from depression and bipolar disorder who don’t respond to drugs and therapy could finally find relief from their symptoms thanks to a brain pacemaker. The medical device is implanted under the skull and sends electrical impulses deep into the brain. Scientists led by Dr Helen Mayberg from the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, found 41 per cent responded to the treatment and one in five went into remission after just six months. The trial included patients with bipolar disorder along with those with severe depression. It followed on from an earlier study by Dr Mayberg that was the first to show deep brain stimulation could help people with major depressive disorder.” w/ photos
