What if a pipe were so amazingly tiny that only a few atoms of superfluid helium could squeeze through its opening at once?  According to a longstanding quantum-mechanics model, the superfluid helium would behave differently from a normal liquid: far from speeding up -- like a river flowing through narrow rapids -- it would actually slow down.  Now, a team of McGill University researchers, with collaborators at the University of Vermont and at Leipzig University in Germany, has succeeded in conducting experiments with the smallest channel yet – less than 30 atoms wide. So does the theory stand?

McGill study challenges idea that social contact, family, improve health, longevity:

Glad to hear it, because I do not like family very much, and admit that too much family gives me a headache.
Too many friends robs me of time to think and meditate on what I find important.
I cannot change what I do not like, and hopefully what I like, solitude, will not cause me to die early.

What if we could reduce rates of a wide range of devastating mental illnesses through early detection?

Thanks to a significant gift from the Irving Ludmer Family Foundation, hope is on the horizon

“For more than a decade now, research has demonstrated that action video game players display more efficient visual attention abilities, and our current study has once again confirmed this notion,” says Dr. Gregory West.
However, they are also much more likely to use navigation strategies that rely on the brain’s reward system and not the brain’s spatial memory system (the hippocampus). And this could be bad news. Here's why : http://www.mcgill.ca/newsroom/channels/news/impact-video-gaming-brain-252136

Our ability to express empathy kicks into action when we get comfortable enough with the strangers, according to a new study.
