London researchers from University College for eight years conducted research as a result of which came to the conclusion that happy people age more slowly. Experts involved in the experiment three thousand people, male and female between the ages of sixty years, followed by eight years passed detailed observation.
Store memories in our brain is uniquely determined by two neural circuits. Perhaps in the future, the construction of memory can be altered by turning some specific groups of neurons
Imagine you hear the halt of tires and then the sound of breaking glass. How will react your brainnext time you face a similar situation? What are the tricks that our brains use to archive in memory that these two events are related to a traffic accident?
The so-called episodic memory is related to the memory of certain events, which need not be associated with traumatic events. Save these events in our brain involves activation of an important part of this, known as the hippocampus .
A study published in the journal Neuron confirms some assumptions made in the eighties , why the brainshould have its own natural store of drugs?
In our body, incredible as it may seem, there are drugs that the brain produces a completely natural way. But drugsunderstood as those stimulants, narcotic or hallucinogenic that can cause serious addiction problems.
The short term memory and long term would be consolidated, according to Japanese researchers working in different parts of the brain. This study lays the groundwork for the first time of how memories are formed.
The construction of memory has been a real mystery to researchers. Knowing how you form memories is one of the most fascinating mysteries of our brain.
New research published in Science by researchers from Brown University says that the water of the moon from earth. Furthermore, their study could rethink new hypotheses about how it was the origin of the moon.
Four years ago, scientists made a discovery that left us open-mouthed. The moonhad water .
The method currently used to stop bleeding, healing and healing of wounds and to prevent infection is surgical sutures. Although in most cases the stitches do not require removal and absorbed by the body itself, have the major drawback that leave scars (albeit subtle) for many years that sometimes never disappears.
Canadian researchers from the University of Waterloo announced the creation of the most realistic model of the human brain. SPAUN (Semantic Pointer Architecture Unified Network) based on a supercomputer, which simulates 2.5 million neurons. For comparison, in the human brain there are about 100 billion neurons which are much higher than artificial brain.
Canadian invention is equipped with a camera with a resolution of 28×28 pixels, which is a “conduit” of information in the digital brain. SPAUN is also equipped with a robotic arm, which records the results of data processing on paper.it also has eyes that can see and move your hand.
I Do not believe in love at first sight until , and of course, now I am a strong advocate of Cupid and its tricks to leave us stunned .
Well, it seems that scientists of the University of California have done some experiments , with those they come to conclusion that it took 250 milliseconds to judge the person we have in front of us, When we look at someone
To understand how to construct the “speech gene” parrots, scientists had to develop a new way of deciphering DNA.
Scientists have developed a new method of sequencing (decryption) of DNA, which allowed them to discover the genes responsible for the ability of parrots to imitate human speech and other sounds. The study is published in the journal Nature Biotechnology.
Having started to look for genes associated with the vocal skills of parrots, scientists are faced with a problem: the existing methods of DNA sequencing, which involves the synthesis of short sequences, consisting of 100-400 base pairs, and then their subsequent “stitching”, does not allow a sufficiently long segment of DNA needed to identify the regulatory regions of genes required.
There is no doubt that genetics plays a role in human intelligence, but so far investigations have not been able to determine how many and which genes have a significant effect on IQ.
The change comes with the biggest ever survey on the effect of genes on human intelligence conducted by 200 researchers at UCLA (University of California Los Angeles).
Based on functional magnetic resonance imaging and genetic analysis of a sample of 20,000 volunteers, the survey failed to identify a gene that indicates far greater measurable contribution to human IQ.
