They just looked at grey matter volume, by taking images. They noticed an increase in volume in areas related to navigation. It could be either new neurons (not shown here) or more connections (more likely but not speculated about). They showed there was a definite change in the structure, not just functionality. Stroke patients with good therapy redeploy existing sets of neurons to take on lost functions (same overall volume, new functions, but not very good). Here they show a way to grow new structures. Not redeploy existing structures, which would take up the same volume.

A "pocket optician" made from a smartphone to help catch children's eye problems is to be trialled by teachers in Kenya. http://bbc.in/1ek1bn7 
The device, which uses the camera's flashlight to check the retina, could help reduce the number of preventable eye problems in the developing world.

Don't be surprised by how amazing nature appears to your eyes, evolution made it so that a pleasant environment looks amazing so you settle in it and have more babies. Your ideal natural environment may be a polar bear's hell.

Okay, this is a pretty neat video, but I'm a bit concerned that he apparently wore the same clothes for 100 days in a row.

It's a nice place, but probably not 5 stars. No Wi-Fi in the rooms, the buffet has strange hours but the staff is incredibly well mannered and go out of their way to help. The business centre is not up to scratch.
