A recent study demonstrated that different emotions are judged to correlate with different body parts. The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, was conducted by a team of bio-medical engineers, with 700 participants from three countries, those being Finland, Sweden and Taiwan.

We all have this annoying high school facebook friend who posts selfies more regularly than we tend to check our facebook accounts. Well, this old friend is no longer labeled as just annoying, as scientists are exploring tagging this behavior as a mental disorder.

Frightening results have been published in the Huffington’s piece indicating that sleep is not just good for your beauty. Although the term “beauty sleep” is proven correct scientifically, it is merely one of the various result (and possibly one of the least significant) in comparison to everything else one can develop due to sleep deprivation.

15 adults living with essential tremor participated in a clinical trial to test the use of this spoon. Participants were better able to hold the spoon with less tremor, which allowed them to scoop food and take it up to their mouths to eat- tasks which were found difficult to perform using regular utensils.

According to the University of British Columbia research team, molecular changes are observed in the brain when one learns or remembers. Such changes occur in the brain’s chemistry as fatty acids attach to delta-catenin (a protein important for normal cognitive development- Wikipedia) upon learning new things, which ultimately alters brain cell connectivity coupled with learning and memory.

The study was made possible by training 11 dogs to lay still throughout the process of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanning. Comparisons were made between brain activity of dog and human participants while they listened to around 200 human and dog sounds.

"Our ultimate hope and aim is to enable patients to train specific regions of their own brain, in a way that relates to their particular condition. For example neurofeedback can be used by people with epilepsy so that they could train to modify brain activity in order to avoid a seizure.”

Researchers found that putting the computer through cognitive tests after reading limited amounts of information, resulted in computer’s performance resembling that of a young adult. However, when exposed to a “lifetime of experiences-like” data, performance was more like that of an adult brain; slower.

The research team studied 116 individuals and compared the relationship between the amount of grey matter and the individuals’ perception of pain when a small spot of arm or leg skin was heated to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This was followed by MRI scans to record images of the volunteer’s brain structure.
