The Most Studied Brain in the World was Scanned for a Year and a Half In Brief Stanford psychologist Russell Poldrack's 18-month study of his own brain reveals new relations between the brain and body. His study makes his brain the most examined in all the world. The Most Studied Brain 100+ experiments in chemistry Chemistry videos - In order to make chemistry lessons more interesting, chemistry videos are being developed by Superaccu OÜ.

Your dad met your mum, they had some fun, and from a tiny fertilised egg you emerged kicking and screaming into the world. You are half your mum, half your dad – and 100% yourself.

Modelling the Relationship between the Food System and Health, Development, and the Environment The aim of this project is to develop the first integrated model of environmental sustainability, health and economic development. Such a model will allow for in-depth exploration of food production and trade scenarios. Global food systems are highly complex.

Some of The Best YouTube Channels for Physics and Chemistry Teachers July 11, 2015 Science in general is all about understanding how the world around us functions. It investigates the laws governing the internal workings of the universe and attempts to prove or disprove theories and assumption pertaining to it. For students, understanding scientific phenomena is integral to their overall intellectual and cognitive growth. It thrusts them into a world of exploration and problem solving and, most important of all, it unleashes their creativity and satiates their curious and probing minds.

Chaos Theory: A Brief Introduction What exactly is chaos? The name "chaos theory" comes from the fact that the systems that the theory describes are apparently disordered, but chaos theory is really about finding the underlying order in apparently random data. When was chaos first discovered? The first true experimenter in chaos was a meteorologist, named Edward Lorenz. goREACT With goREACT, you can become a virtual chemist.

Nuclear reactor and power plant simulation Introduction This is not a lesson like the others in Radioactivity and Atomic Physics Explained but it fits in well with the lesson on nuclear power. It is a very sophisticated simulation of a pressurised water reactor (PWR), which is the most common type of nuclear power reactor in the US but not in Europe, though the principles are very similar.

Why Aren’t There More Scientists? A One-Word Explanation – Phenomena: Curiously Krulwich “The type of science that I do is sometimes known as ‘curiosity-driven research,’” writes Hope Jahren, who teaches paleobiology at the University of Hawai‘i. “This means that my work will never result in a marketable product, a useful machine, a prescribable pill, a formidable weapon, or any direct gain.” If by some crazy chance she discovers something useful, that will be “figured out at some much later date by someone who is not me,” she writes. So she’s the real deal—a scientist chasing questions, designing experiments, and showing 19, 20, and 21 year olds how to do it. Her lab has produced important papers, mostly about why plants have been so successful on our planet. Giant corporations don’t throw money at her.
