Summary

In science news around the world: A U.N. report finds signs of progress in slowing the spread of HIV/AIDS; France's top research agency calls for proposals to help understand and prevent terrorism in the wake of last month's Paris attacks; Spain's government announces plans to create a national research agency; and the winners of the fourth annual BioArt competition, sponsored by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, are announced. Also, researchers learn that zebrafish may show signs of sentience in an "emotional fever" test. And scientists find that the brains of men and women aren't really all that different.
