Behold the Insula

Interesting news in nature caught my eye:

A study in Science reported that people with damage to the insula, a brain area involved in the assessment of bodily states, found it much easier to give up smoking than people with lesions in other brain areas. Importantly, the insula-lesioned patients had no urge to start smoking again.

I think I can see where this is going: mandatory insulotomies for smokers, once Hillary is elected.
