Philosophy snapshots: Interconnected…
Potatoes… A hand. Light. Shadows… Things irrelevant. Interconnected…
Galaxies. Dancing… Galaxies millions of light years away seem to be connected by an unseen network of massive intergalactic structures, which force them to synchronize in ways that can’t be explained by existing astrophysics, Vice reports. In particular, there have been many instances of astronomers observing galaxies that seem to be connected and moving in […]
Smelling the forest… A tree born…
Animals are much better at smelling a complex “soup” of odorants rather than a single pure ingredient, a study by the University of Sussex has revealed. Prof Nowotny, Director of Research and Knowledge Exchange in the University of Sussex’s School of Engineering and Informatics, said: “Our study was looking at how olfactory receptors and brain […]
Brain waves. A calm lake…
Our brains hum with electrical activity. Brain waves created by the coordinated firing of huge collections of nerve cells pinball around the brain. The waves can ricochet from the front of the brain to the back, or from deep structures all the way to the scalp and then back again. Called neuronal oscillations, these signals […]
Synchronizing the brain with the cosmos. Not remembering.
The ability to remember sounds, and manipulate them in our minds, is incredibly important to our daily lives. New research is shedding light on how sound memory works in the brain, and is even demonstrating a means to improve it. Scientists previously knew that a neural network of the brain called the dorsal stream was […]
