Common Knlowledge On How The Brain Form Memories May Be Wrong, Research Shows [VIDEO]

A new study shows that what we know on how the brain form memories may be in error. A new study shows that the brain forms two simultaneous memories.


Physicists Say They've Created a Fluid With 'Negative Mass'

Researchers in the US say they've created a fluid with negative mass in the lab... which is exactly as mind-bending as it sounds.



What it means is that, unlike pretty much every other known physical object, when you push this fluid, it accelerates backwards instead of moving forwards. Such an oddity could tell scientists about some of the strange behaviour that happens within black holes and neutron stars.


Scientists Discover a Hidden Network of 'Mini Brains' That Could be Responsible for Pain

Scientists have found evidence of a hidden network of 'mini brains' that could overhaul our understanding of how pain is transmitted throughout the body, and revolutionise the way we design pain medication.


Scientists aim to reach the Earth's mantle with an undersea drill

We'd know a lot more about what's under the Earth's crust if Jules Verne's Icelandic volcano weren't but a figment of his imagination. Japan's Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology's (JAMSTEC) largest drilling ship called "Chikyu" is very real, though, and a group of international researchers plan to use it to drill into the Earth's mantle...

Researchers discover brain structure that helps us to understand what others think

By the age of four years we suddenly start to understand what other people think and that their beliefs about the world might differ from our own. We then manage to do what 3-year-olds are not yet capable of – we can put ourselves in someone else's shoes. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig were able to show what supports this milestone in development: the maturation of a critical fibre connection in the brain.


Immortal stem cells let scientists create an unlimited supply of artificial blood

Researchers have developed a line immortal stem cells that allow them to generate an unlimited supply of artificial red blood cells on demand.



If these artificial blood cells pass clinical trials, they'll be far more efficient for medical use than current red blood cell products, which have to be generated from donor blood - and would be a huge deal for patients with rare blood types, who often struggle to find matching blood donors.
