Venom of Wasp - Potential Treatment for Parkinson's Disease
A new family of peptides in the venom of the wasp Ampulex compressa, when injected into the brain of a cockroach, could control the mind of the cockroach, and might even help researchers develop better Parkinson's disease treatments. After being stung by a parasitic wasp, the American cockroach loses control of its behavior, becoming host to the wasp's egg. Days later, the hatchling consumes the cockroach alive.
