comment Has there ever been an attempt to create nutritionally tailored food for adult human consumption?
Military has meals ready to eat (MRE) that come in a variety of flavors, but are quite far from the granule type dog food that you are thinking of

comment What are evolutionary implications of contraception and reduced childhood mortality rates worldwide?
Thanks for an informative answer! It seems that common sense is not always true when evolution is concerned. Where do I sign up for trendy genes? ;)

comment How is propagation of action potentials terminated once the “message” has been sent/received?
Nice answer! What is sustained activity, is it a pulse train(multiple spikes) on top of tonic activity, or tonic activity alone?

comment Is there any biological reason for humans to rest after x days of work?
This is what I'm trying to find out - if there's a reason to take it slow once in a while and relax, purposefully not working. I'm sure with the pace of modern life people cram their weekend to the brim and then wish they did not have to sleep. But this does not appear to me to be the nature's way. I can't think of an animal that is as active at all hours of a day as humans are

Sleep is circadian in nature, with this question I'm trying to understand if there are other, longer term cycles that I don't know of yet. The wikipedia article on circa-septan cycles is a stub: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circaseptan

comment What is the biological basis for a human's ability to think clearly and be aware while “fighting/competing”?
Very good answer! I especially appreciate the reference about how rational processes can be suppressed. If one relies on rationality in dealing with such situations, one may be surprised.
