Male Flies Resort to “Drinking” When Rejected By Females

It has been revealed according to a recent strange and interesting report that when the mating period is on and the male fruit flies are rejected by the females, they tend to shift towards alcohol containing food. This might be something similar to what men do when they get turned down by women.

It was found that the male flies tend to have a particular Neuropeptide F in their brain, which actually allows them to go about with the mating. The researchers were of the view that a different strain of the same molecule, namely the Neuropeptide Y is present in humans and has an effect on addiction and mental illnesses.

This might tend to determine the course of addictions in people. The more the molecule, people might be more inclined towards getting high and addicted on different stuff.

“We wanted to really find a molecular mechanism that links experiences to drug-related behavior. We are really hoping that this will encourage those working with mice and rats and humans to look at what happens to this Neuropeptide in psychiatric conditions”, said Ulrike Heberlein, one of the lead authors of the study in the report.

There is need for further tests to be done to find out what sort of effect the molecule might tend to have on human relationships, and whether they can be controlled. If they could be controlled, there might be a lot of good done to the world, because it would mean being able to fight addictions in the time to come.

On the other hand the male flies that mated were less likely to get indulged in “alcoholic food”, to ward off the pain from their mind and heart!
