Brain, Consciousness, God, Human, Mind
A mind anticipating everything… A human mind… God’s mind.
Scientists have shown how the brain anticipates all of the new situations that it may encounter in a lifetime by creating a special kind of neural network that is ‘pre-adapted’ to face any eventuality. A study shows that a seemingly miraculous pre-adaptation comes from connections between neurons that form recurrent loops where inputs can rebound […]
Zero. Unknown. And yet, so familiar…
When seeing a number of dots, a weird process takes place in our brain. According to a new research, the parietal lobe registers the lack of any dots as a missing visual stimulus, without quantitative significance and therefore fundamentally different from numbers. But at the next level at which processing takes place, the frontal lobe, […]
Reading… Believing in parallel lines…
Neuroscientists at UC Davis have come up with a way to observe brain activity during natural reading. It’s the first time researchers have been able to study the brain while reading actual texts, instead of individual words, and it’s already helping settle some ideas about just how we read. The team has applied the technology […]
Consciousness brain research: The scientific dogmatism of the philosophically untrained. [OR: TV: A new episode]
Intensive experimental research is conducted to understand how brain circuits control sleep-wake cycle and consciousness – an enigma in modern Neurosciences and an exciting key mystery to resolve. Together with fellow researcher Carolina Gutierrez Herrera and colleagues from Germany, Adamantidis made a dual discovery: his team identified a new circuit in the brain of mice […]
Happy hamster… [Reading minds]
Is your pet hamster high on life — or just a sad little ball of fur? A new study from England suggests that — just like humans — some hamsters can have a shift in mood, from a gloomy demeanor to a more rosy view of life, for instance. What’s more, the research shows that […]
