Have you heard of some of these? as a tooth paste, mixed with baking soda (disinfectant, very mildly bleaching) (1% to 3%)as a foot bath (1% to 3%) (oxygen supplement, deodorant, disinfectant for viruses and bacteria)added to bath water, to soak in the bathtub! (1/2 to 1 cup of 35% in a tub of water) (oxygen supplement, deodorant, disinfectant)sprayed on skin (oxygen supplement, deodorant, disinfectant) (3%)as an oxygen supplement and disinfectant in drinking water (used in extremely small amounts, very dilute solution) (oxygen supplement, disinfectant)cleaning ears (disinfectant) (1% to 3%)disinfecting cuts and woundsroutine hand washing (spray 3% on your hands after washing, or dip hands into a container of 3%)sanitizing and disinfecting your hands after caring for animals, babies, or other people, or after handling blood, vomit, feces, mold, bacteria, etc. Hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash
Consciousness, Self, and the Prefrontal Cortex There is a basic question that must be addressed when pondering the nature of consciousness, and that is: why have consciousness at all? The brain processes a great deal of information below the level of conscious awareness, from visual to auditory to tactile, and then the integration of all of these before they can be brought into conscious awareness. Yet conscious awareness itself seems much more limited in the amount of information that it can handle at a time—5 to 9 “chunks” of information, at a time, it would seem.

Brain Structures and Their Functions The nervous system is your body's decision and communication center. The central nervous system (CNS) is made of the brain and the spinal cord and the peripheral nervous system (PNS) is made of nerves. Together they control every part of your daily life, from breathing and blinking to helping you memorize facts for a test. Nerves reach from your brain to your face, ears, eyes, nose, and spinal cord... and from the spinal cord to the rest of your body.
Leukemia Treatment Virtually Eradicates Cancer, Kills 'Pounds' Of Cancerous Cells A new leukemia treatment is wowing even the researchers behind its creation, providing results beyond their wildest expectations. It's virtually eradicated cancerous leukemia cells in the first three patients it's been tested on. In two of the first three patients the process was tested on the treatment completely destroyed the most common type of leukemia, according to MSNBC.

Lucid Dreamers Show Better Self-Reflecting Capabilities When Awake The ability to control what happens in one's dreams is an endearing prospect, so much so that there are pages of information online which supposedly help individuals achieve this curious state, which is known as lucid dreaming. Despite being a well-recognized phenomenon, we still know very little about it, nor why some people seem to experience it more frequently than others. Now, a new study by scientists at the Max Planck Institute has offered some novel insight into the subject with the finding that a particular brain region known to be involved in self-reflection is larger in lucid dreamers. Exclusive: 21 Proposals For A Better Future From Singularity U’s 2012 Class GSP students of the Care9 team present their core innovation to transform global health. This year’s Graduate Studies Program (GSP) at Singularity University — the learning institution focused on future-shaping technologies — is wrapping up an intense 10-week summer. To celebrate, an expo event, including the Closing Ceremony, was held at the Computer History Museum. The GSP is the biggest program that the University runs every year, filtering through over 3,000 applications to identify 80 students tasked with impacting the lives of a billion people in the next 10 years along eight grand challenges: education, global health, energy, environment, food, water, security, and poverty. Over the last few weeks, students broke up into 21 teams and presented their ideas aimed at nothing short of changing the world. You can read more about the Closing Ceremony here, but check out the short synopses of the teams below.
Neurophysiology Neurophysiology (from Greek νεῦρον, neuron, "nerve"; φύσις, physis, "nature, origin"; and -λογία, -logia) is a branch of physiology and neuroscience that is concerned with the study of the functioning of the nervous system. The primary tools of basic neurophysiological research include electrophysiological recordings such as patch clamp and calcium imaging, as well as some of the common tools of molecular biology. Neurophysiology is connected with electrophysiology, neurobiology, psychology, neurology, clinical neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, cognitive science, biophysics, mathematical biology, and other brain sciences. History Neurophysiology has been a subject of study since as early as 4,000 B.C.

New Brain Map Reveals Unknown Cell Types Researchers have produced a detailed map of brain cells and the genes that are active within them. Their work, published in Science this week, even revealed a handful of previously unknown types of cells. In mammals, the cerebral cortex plays a role in cognitive functions like memory and social behaviors, and these all rely on a variety of cell types: from neurons and their protective glial cells to blood vessel cells. There are about 100 million cells in a mouse brain, and 65 billion cells in a human brain. A Swedish team led by Jens Hjerling-Leffler and Sten Linnarsson of Karolinska Institutet wanted to create a more detailed brain map that could help us better understand how brain cells respond to diseases and injuries. Using a technique called single cell sequencing, they were able to classify the cells in the mouse somatosensory cortex and hippocampal CA1 region.
Bloom’s Taxonomy: The 21st Century Version So much have been written about Bloom’s taxonomy; one click in a search engine will flood your page with hundreds of articles all of which revolve around this taxonomy. Only few are those who have tried to customize it to fit in the 21st century educational paradigm. As a fan of Bloom’s pedagogy and being a classroom practitioner, I always look for new ways to improve my learning and teaching, and honestly speaking , if you are a teacher/ educator and still do not understand Bloom’s taxonomy then you are missing out on a great educational resource.
