How can we sense the difference between a gentle caress and a painful pinch? How do we know where our bodies are in space? The answers to these and other questions about the sense of touch have been elusive, but research at the National Institutes of Health Library, including work by Dr. Alex Chesler of the NCCIH Division of Intramural Research, is providing important clues. A new Nature News and Comment article explains what the research shows about pressure-sensitive proteins called Piezos that allow cells to detect tension and pressure.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the NIH Library’s bibliometrics training series. The series is a collection of thirteen free online videos that introduce viewers to the theories and practices of bibliometric analysis, as implemented by the NIH Library’s bibliometric service program. The goal of the series is to teach others how we do bibliometrics and why we do things the way that we do.

The training series is now available from the NIH Library website: #bibliometrics
