Hit a 95 mph baseball? Scientists pinpoint how we see it coming

How does San Francisco Giants slugger Pablo Sandoval swat a 95 mph fastball, or tennis icon Venus Williams see the oncoming ball, let alone return her sister Serena’s 120 mph serves? For the first time, vision scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have pinpointed how the brain tracks fast-moving objects.

The discovery advances our understanding of how humans predict the trajectory of moving objects when it can take one-tenth of a second for the brain to process what the eye sees.

My friend Sandra Kaylock, shes from United States. she never believed in love spells or magic until I introduced her to this spell caster once when I went to Africa in June last year on a business Assignment I met a man called Dr Umar the great magic spell caster, his powerful magic could help you cast spells to bring back your lover or looking for some one to love you, bring back lost money and magic money spell or spell for a good job. I'm now happy and a living testimony cos the man I had wanted to marry left me 4weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3 year I really loved him, but his mother was against me and he had no good pay job so when I met this spell caster, I told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him at first I was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but I just gave it a try and in 6 days when I returned to Texas my boyfriend (is now my husband ) he called me by himself and came to me, apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married I didn't believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and now we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid and my husband also got a new job and our lives became much better. In case anyone need the spell caster for some help you can email him on ►►ᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵumarsani335@gmail.comᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵᴵ

Epilepsy Cured in Mice Using Brain Cells

Epilepsy that does not respond to drugs can be halted in adult mice by
transplanting a specific type of cell into the brain, UCSF researchers have discovered, raising hope that a similar treatment might work in severe forms of human epilepsy.

Autism can be detected by analyzing brain activity
By Tibi Puiu , ZME Science
Shared by +Heather Sorensen 

Researchers Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and the University of Toronto have demonstrated for the first time that is possible to confirm or independently assess clinical diagnoses of autism in children simply by analyzing their brain activity. Reliable and efficient, their method might be employed at a massive scale as a means of accurately detecting the condition much longer in advance, as well as determining the anatomical abnormalities associated with autism.

The nocebo effect: media reports may trigger symptoms of a disease

Media reports about substances that are supposedly hazardous to health may cause suggestible people to develop symptoms of a disease even though there is no objective reason for doing so. This is the conclusion of a study of the phenomenon known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

Those affected report experiencing certain symptoms on exposure to electromagnetic waves, such as those emitted by cell phones, and these take the form of physical reactions.

With the help of magnetic resonance imaging, it has been demonstrated that the regions of the brain responsible for pain processing are active in such cases.

The new study illustrates how media reports about health risks may trigger or amplify nocebo effects in some people.

Cognitive abilities often regarded as unique to humans include humor, morality, symbolism, creativity, and preoccupation with the minds of others. In these compelling talks, emphasis is placed on the functional uniqueness of these attributes, as opposed to the anatomical uniqueness, and whether these attributes are indeed quantitatively or qualitatively unique to humans.

Deep brain stimulation is becoming very precise. This technique allows surgeons to place electrodes in almost any area of the brain, and turn them up or down -- like a radio dial or thermostat -- to correct dysfunction. A dramatic look at emerging techniques, in which a woman with Parkinson's instantly stops shaking and brain areas eroded by Alzheimer's are brought back to life.

Crying is more likely to make people feel better when they had emotional support (such as a close friend nearby or a lover, a mate ...), if they were crying due to a positive event, or if their crying led to a resolution or new understanding of the situation that led them to cry in the first place. Some more times crying isn't in place nor the time .. like you feel crying but can't or cry without feeling any return out of your tears.
