Given the stringent upper limits from direct detection experiments, one possibility is that dark matter scatters with nuclei only at the loop level. In the first part of the talk, I will discuss direct detection signals of simplified models of a fermionic singlet. We impose current limits and analyse how direct detection experiments can constrain the dark matter parameter space. In the second part, I will discuss an example of a model with neutrino masses at one loop. I will discuss the phenomenology of the model and specially how the relic abundance can be obtained.
