First International Conference on Yawning

When I saw the header of the email, I wasn't sure whether it was for real. It is.

We are proud to announce the First International Conference on Yawning. These two days meetings bring together leading international speakers to review both emerging information and its convergence with current understanding. Join leaders in the field on June 24 & 25, 2010 in Paris.

A homologous behavior between humans and budgies! Fascinating.

Also fascinating, to my mind, is the observation that in a portion of the (human) population, anti-depressants cause spontaneous yawning and orgasms.
