Fundamental Difference Between Human and Animal Neurons Discovered. Neurons communicate with each other via electrical impulses, which are produced by ion channels that control the flow of ions such as potassium and sodium.

Fundamental Difference Between Human and Animal Neurons Discovered

In a surprising new finding, MIT neuroscientists have shown that human neurons have a much smaller number of these channels than expected, compared to the neurons of other mammals. The researchers hypothesize that this reduction in channel density may have helped the human brain evolve to operate more efficiently, allowing it to divert resources to other energy-intensive processes that are required to perform complex cognitive tasks. “If the brain can save energy by reducing the density of ion channels, it can spend that energy on other neuronal or circuit processes,” says Mark Harnett, an associate professor of brain and cognitive sciences, a member of MIT’s McGovern Institute for Brain Research, and the senior author of the study.

However, human neurons proved to be a striking exception to this rule. A building plan. (1) Facebook. (20+) Facebook. Mobile Uploads. Elderly Portraits of 100-Year-Old People. This post may contain affiliate links.

When it comes to vaccines, should freedom of choice remain? Why is only one perspective presented by mainstream media? What Happened: According to the CDC Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), as of today (February 20th, 2021) 929 deaths, 316 permanent disabilities and more than 15,000 adverse events have been reported from people after taking the COVID-19 vaccine. This mainly represents reports that are coming in from the United States. (1) Facebook. Science Is Finally Proving The Existence Of Meridian Points Throughout The Human Body.

Kevin Debiparshad to have him saw through their perfectly healthy leg bones. At his LimbplastX Institute in Las Vegas, Debiparshad cuts through patients’ femurs or tibias, forces the bones to separate with metal implants, and sends them on their way to heal. Once their bones grow back, they’ll be several inches taller — like that one scene in the 1997 sci-fi film “Gattaca.” “It’s no secret that taller men have an advantage when it comes to dating,” reads a LimbplastX Institute press release. “In the age of digital matchmaking, the desire to appear taller has gained prominence, particularly for men with below-average height.” When Futurism spoke with Debiparshad, he dismissed the press release as marketing hyperbole — though he didn’t quite rule out dating as a motivation for leg-extension surgery.

Why Your Brain Needs Exercise. In the 1990s researchers announced a series of discoveries that would upend a bedrock tenet of neuroscience.

Why Your Brain Needs Exercise

For decades the mature brain was understood to be incapable of growing new neurons. Once an individual reached adulthood, the thinking went, the brain began losing neurons rather than gaining them. But evidence was building that the adult brain could, in fact, generate new neurons. In one particularly striking experiment with mice, scientists found that simply running on a wheel led to the birth of new neurons in the hippocampus, a brain structure that is associated with memory. Emotional Anatomy: Stunning Vintage Illustrations of Somatic Consciousness. What would happen if you combined phrenology, sentics, and Benjamin Betts’s geometrical psychology?

Emotional Anatomy: Stunning Vintage Illustrations of Somatic Consciousness

You might get something like Emotional Anatomy: The Structure of Experience (public library) — a curious vintage tome originally published in 1985 by Stanley Keleman, director of Berkeley’s Center for Energetic Studies, who sets out to map “the geometry of somatic consciousness” based on the idea that physical human shape is interrelated with one’s emotional and psychological reality — a questionable pseudoscientific model akin to a kind of psychological phrenology. But what makes the book remarkable is the stunning black-white-and-red artwork by illustrator, fine artist and anatomist Vincent Perez, depicting Keleman’s various conceptions of somatic functions. Keleman begins with a biological primer on the structure and function of cells, exploring how energy and substance move through the body: Facts About Body. The evolution of the human face. Neuroscientist Explains How Orgasms Can Be Used To Reach An ‘Altered State of Consciousness’

Neuroscientist Explains How Orgasms Can Be Used To Reach An ‘Altered State of Consciousness’

The obvious answer coming from mainstream science these days is a big no. It’s quite clear that we’re not alone, that’s the general scientific consensus. Study Shows What Sharp Changes In Solar & Geomagnetic Activity Do To The Human Body. Over the past few years, a number of publications have emerged from scientists and researchers all over the world regarding the human magnetic field.

Study Shows What Sharp Changes In Solar & Geomagnetic Activity Do To The Human Body

Not only have they been studying the human magnetic field, they’ve also been studying the magnetic field of the planet, and how all these fields, including our own, can impact ourselves and the people around us. It’s similar to quantum entanglement, in that both show that everybody and every living thing is “connected” in ways we have yet to fully understand. Leading the charge are the brilliant scientists over at the HearthMath Institute. An internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization, it dedicates itself to helping people reduce stress, self-regulate emotions, and build energy and resilience for healthy, happy lives.

A large portion of their research has investigated heart and brain interaction. The interoceptive turn is maturing as a rich science of selfhood. In 1926, Virginia Woolf wrote about how, when one is ill: All day, all night the body intervenes; blunts or sharpens, colours or discolours, turns to wax in the warmth of June, hardens to tallow in the murk of February. The creature within can only gaze through the pane – smudged or rosy; it cannot separate off from the body like the sheath of a knife or the pod of a pea for a single instant; it must go through the whole unending procession of changes, heat and cold, comfort and discomfort, hunger and satisfaction, health and illness, until there comes the inevitable catastrophe.

Woolf knew well about bodily interventions, suffering as she did from a range of symptoms pertaining to what today we call bipolar disorder. Yet the body intervenes constantly, whether one is ill or not. The human microbiome is a treasure trove waiting to be unlocked. Summary: Understanding the complexity of the human microbiome may help unlock mysteries behind health and psychological illnesses. Source: The Conversation Bacteria are at the center of all life forms on planet earth and are the essential building blocks that make living organisms the way they are. Both the mitochondrion — found in most organisms, which generates energy in the cell — and the chloroplast — the solar energy-harvester located in plants — can be traced to their bacterial ancestors.

These specialized microbes laid the foundation for the biodiversity we live amongst. Science Finally Proves Meridians Exist. Libresse - Viva La Vulva. How Our Body "Hears" Vibrations.

The body as teacher. 7 Proofs of Evolution in the Human Body. More than half your body is not human. Newfound 'organ' had been missed by standard method for visualizing anatomy. Researchers have identified a previously unknown feature of human anatomy with implications for the function of all organs, most tissues and the mechanisms of most major diseases. Published March 27 in Scientific Reports, a new study co-led by an NYU School of Medicine pathologist reveals that layers of the body long thought to be dense, connective tissues -- below the skin's surface, lining the digestive tract, lungs and urinary systems, and surrounding arteries, veins, and the fascia between muscles -- are instead interconnected, fluid-filled compartments.

This series of spaces, supported by a meshwork of strong (collagen) and flexible (elastin) connective tissue proteins, may act like shock absorbers that keep tissues from tearing as organs, muscles, and vessels squeeze, pump, and pulse as part of daily function. INSH - Two doctors have built the most realistic... Researchers Say Humans Have Reached Their Maximum Biological Limits. Humans may have reached their maximum limits for height, lifespan and physical performance.

A recent review suggests humans have biological limitations, and that anthropogenic impacts on the environment – including climate change – could have a deleterious effect on these limits. Published in Frontiers in Physiology, this review is the first of its kind spanning 120 years worth of historical information, while considering the effects of both genetic and environmental parameters. Despite stories that with each generation we will live longer and longer, this review suggests there may be a maximum threshold to our biological limits that we cannot exceed. A transdisciplinary research team from across France studied trends emerging from historical records, concluding that there appears to be a plateau in the maximum biological limits for humans’ height, age and physical abilities. “These traits no longer increase, despite further continuous nutritional, medical, and scientific progress.
