Description

I discuss the status of data from direct detection experiments including DAMA, CDMS, CoGeNT and others, with a particular emphasis on the WIMP mass region around 10 GeV. The possibility to explain these data in terms of spin-independent or spin-dependent elastic or inelastic scattering is discussed.
