Consciousness: Eight questions science must answer | Anil Seth | Science Consciousness is at once the most familiar and the most mysterious feature of our existence. A new science of consciousness is now revealing its biological basis. Once considered beyond the reach of science, the neural mechanisms of human consciousness are now being unravelled at a startling pace by neuroscientists and their colleagues. I've always been fascinated by the possibility of understanding consciousness, so it is tremendously exciting to witness – and take part in – this grand challenge for 21st century science. Here are eight key questions that neuroscientists are now addressing: 1. The brain contains about 90 billion neurons, and about a thousand times more connections between them. But consciousness isn't just about having a large number of neurons. Current hot topics include the role of the brain's densely connected frontal lobes, and the importance of information flow between regions rather than their activity per se. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
Scientists Identify Gene Required for Nerve Regeneration | Genetics A gene that is associated with regeneration of injured nerve cells has been identified by a team of researchers led by Prof Melissa Rolls of Penn State University. In fruit flies with two normal copies of the spastin gene, a team of scientists led by Prof Melissa Rolls of Penn State University found that severed axons were able to regenerate. However, in fruit flies with two or even only one abnormal spastin gene, the severed axons were not able to regenerate (Melissa Rolls / Penn State University) The team has found that a mutation in a single gene can entirely shut down the process by which axons – the parts of the nerve cell that are responsible for sending signals to other cells – regrow themselves after being cut or damaged. “We are hopeful that this discovery will open the door to new research related to spinal-cord and other neurological disorders in humans,” said Prof Rolls, who co-authored a paper published online in the journal Cell Reports.
Does DNA Emit Light? Dan Eden for viewzone.com An incredible story! I get lots of suggestions for stories, and I really appreciate them. I had this same experience this week when I was sent an article where a Russian (again) scientist, Pjotr Garjajev, had managed to intercept communication from a DNA molecule in the form of ultraviolet photons -- light! But this was just the beginning. Dr. I tried to find a scientific journal that had this experiment. Fritz-Albert Popp thought he had discovered a cure for cancer. It was 1970, and Popp, a theoretical biophysicist at the University of Marburg in Germany, had been teaching radiology -- the interaction of electromagnetic (EM) radiation on biological systems. He'd been examining two almost identical molecules: benzo[a]pyrene, a polycyclic hydrocarbon known to be one of the most lethal carcinogens to humans, and its twin (save for a tiny alteration in its molecular makeup), benzo[e]pyrene. Why Ultra-violet light? Photorepair Light inside the body Comments: John B. Dr.
A Third Eye Meditation To Open Your Psychic Ability The third eye is also known as the sixth chakra and is located between the eyebrows and a little higher than the bridge of the nose. Through utilizing a third eye meditation you can open your subtle senses to perceive higher-dimensional worlds and energies. The third eye is the center of what is called clairvoyant sight which is a word derived from the French, meaning "clear vision," and refers to the higher-sense ability to intuitively see or perceive subtle energies. Sometimes this is referred to as a sixth sense which means a capability to access impressions that lie beyond the recognized five physical senses. You'll Never View Things the Same Again It is not necessary to be clairvoyant to be spiritually enlightened, but it does expand your perceptions of the energies around you, and this can be quite useful in clearing blocks, issues, and limitations, releasing karma, discovering information from your past, and exploring new and higher levels of consciousness. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
Male and female brains wired differently, scans reveal | Science Scientists have drawn on nearly 1,000 brain scans to confirm what many had surely concluded long ago: that stark differences exist in the wiring of male and female brains. Maps of neural circuitry showed that on average women's brains were highly connected across the left and right hemispheres, in contrast to men's brains, where the connections were typically stronger between the front and back regions. Ragini Verma, a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, said the greatest surprise was how much the findings supported old stereotypes, with men's brains apparently wired more for perception and co-ordinated actions, and women's for social skills and memory, making them better equipped for multitasking. "If you look at functional studies, the left of the brain is more for logical thinking, the right of the brain is for more intuitive thinking. So if there's a task that involves doing both of those things, it would seem that women are hardwired to do those better," Verma said.
New wonder drug matches and kills all kinds of cancer — human testing starts 2014 Stanford researchers are on track to begin human trials of a potentially potent new weapon against cancer, and would-be participants are flooding in following the Post’s initial report on the discovery. The progress comes just two months after the groundbreaking study by Dr Irv Weissman, who developed an antibody that breaks down a cancer’s defense mechanisms in the body. A protein called CD47 tells the body not to “eat” the cancer, but the antibody developed by Dr Weissman blocks CD47 and frees up immune cells called macrophages — which can then engulf the deadly cells. The new research shows the miraculous macrophages effectively act as intelligence gatherers for the body, pointing out cancerous cells to cancer-fighting “killer T” cells. The T cells then “learn” to hunt down and attack the cancer, the researchers claim. The clinical implications of the process could be profound in the war on cancer. This turns them into a personalized cancer vaccine.
Grounding – The Ultimate Healing Technique? The amount of barriers to healing is a long and sordid list, with a dirty food, water and air supply sitting at the top. Combine that with a poor relationship with the sun and the earth, and true healing becomes very difficult. However, if we can reignite our connection with the earth by grounding, we may find healing becomes a lot easier. What is grounding? Grounding, also known as earthing, is based on research showing that having a connection to the earth’s electrical energy promotes physical well-being. Turns out, its one of the core foundations for true health and an absolute requirement for healing the body. The pioneer and the science Clinton Ober, a recognized pioneer in the concept of earthing, knew that the earth’s surface is made up of negatively charged ions, which contain extra electrons. Ober finally received support in 2004, after many years of personal research, when the Journal of Alternative and Complimentary Medicine published one of his studies. Sources:
Difference between a Spiritual Finder & a Spiritual Seeker This article is written for Evolving Beings by guest author Jim Tolles of Spiritual Awakening Process. There’s no doubt that we live in extraordinary times. Many old structures are falling apart, and people are being cast into places of doubt and uncertainty. This has, as it has for a good part of history, created a crucible for spiritual awakening. It’s the sad truth that people don’t look to spirit until they’re up against a wall. Yes, this is a tough time, but we’ve created tough shells. The Never-Ending Path of the Spiritual Seeker It all starts out harmlessly enough. It’s all very deceptive. Returning to the Source, Returning to You Much of Western society is caught up in the notion that something you need is out there. Subsequently, this same mentality happens to many spiritual seekers. You Are Already Complete As a spiritual teacher, I talk a lot about process and clearing out old issues. Becoming a Spiritual Finder and the Power of Choice About the Author
