The Science Behind Happiness

Everybody wants to be and feel happy but did you know that how happy you feel all starts with six tiny molecules found in your brain? From Oxytocin, the love molecule, to Adrenaline, the energy molecule, this infographic breaks down what exactly each of these molecules are and how they affect you and your state of happiness. This helpful infographic from the folks at Jazzercise even includes actions you can take to give certain chemicals a boost. So if you’re low on endorphins, smell some vanilla, throw on some music and exercise, and you should feel those endorphins in no time!

Anatomy Of A Microscope

Today marks a first for Microscope.com….the publication of our first microscope infographic. The designer has included a variety of fun microscope facts, a few relevant literary quotes and a visual timeline of the evolution of microscopy. We are delighted as it does exactly what we had hoped it would do in adding an element of visual freshness and color to what is otherwise a somewhat dry topic. We are hoping that it will be a colorful addition to any science site or museum that wishes to carry it on their website while also forming a cheerful addition to our own website.
