The Evolution of Good Taste (Biology) — UR

Does evolution explain why we can’t resist a salty chip? Researchers at NC State University found that differences between the elemental composition of foods and the elemental needs of animals can explain the development of pleasing tastes like salty, umami and sweet. Taste tells us a lot about foods before they are swallowed and digested, […]Continue reading “The Evolution of Good Taste (Biology) — UR”

Collective Intelligence Can Be Predicted and Quantified, New Study Finds (Neuroscience) — Uncover reality

In order to address issues ranging from climate change to developing complex technologies and curing diseases, science relies on collective intelligence, or the ability of a group to work together and solve a range of problems that vary in complexity. To better understand how to measure and predict collective intelligence, researchers used meta-analytic methods to […]Continue reading “Collective Intelligence Can Be Predicted and Quantified, New Study Finds (Neuroscience) — Uncover reality”

Not only impact causes BRAIN INJURIES– AVM tells us of another.

AVM (Arteriovenous malformation) is an abnormal knot of arteries and veins altering normal oxygen circulation and blood flow. It’s rare, meaning a low rate of general knowledge about the condition exists. It’s a naturally occurring phenomenon and may cause a sudden brain injury without anticipatory planning. Unplanned effects coming from an AVM to create strokeContinue reading “Not only impact causes BRAIN INJURIES– AVM tells us of another.”

Judgement Can Damage People – CONNECTING BRAIN INJURY & HOMOSEXUAL EXPERIENCES

Judgement and subsequent abuse are often realities faced during hard personal struggles. It comes from the perception of your struggle by other individuals and in a manner that hinders your recovery. I wanted to talk about two areas where social stigma can have negative results. Jordan and I suffered brain injuries in different ways. BrainContinue reading “Judgement Can Damage People – CONNECTING BRAIN INJURY & HOMOSEXUAL EXPERIENCES”

Breakthroughs in practical neurology – A Theory For How Memories Are Stored in the Brain.

Research from the University of Kent has led to the development of the MeshCODE theory, a revolutionary new theory for understanding brain and memory function. This discovery may be the beginning of a new understanding of brain function and in treating brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s. In a paper published by Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience,Continue reading “Breakthroughs in practical neurology – A Theory For How Memories Are Stored in the Brain.”

Dense info, but to learn a little : The Ebb And Flow Of Brain Ventricles (Neuroscience)

It is not only the heart that has chambers – the brain does, too. Its four ventricles are connected to the spinal canal and filled with a clear liquid called cerebrospinal fluid, which removes metabolic waste from the neurons. If the brain becomes inflamed, immune cells also circulate in this fluid. This is the caseContinue reading “Dense info, but to learn a little : The Ebb And Flow Of Brain Ventricles (Neuroscience)”
