It may seem that hallucinations are random images that appear to some individuals, or that delusions are thoughts that arise without purpose. However, in some cases, a specific brain pathway may create a particular image or delusion, and different people may experience the same hallucination. In recent decades, with advances in brain science, researchers have started to unravel the causes of some of these conditions, while others have remained a mystery. Here is a look at seven odd hallucinations, which show that anything is possible when the brain takes a break from reality. 1. This neurological syndrome is characterized by bizarre, distorted perceptions of time and space, similar to what Alice experienced in Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland."

Lonely people post personal details on Facebook By Quentin Fottrell Shutterstock Posting constant status updates on Facebook /quotes/zigman/9962609/delayed/quotes/nls/fb FB +1.28% may be annoying for others, but a new study finds that oversharing on the world’s most popular social network is also a sign of loneliness. More than 79% of the users who describe themselves as “lonely” disclosed personal information, such as their favorite books and movies, compared with less than 65% of other users, according to a new study published by researchers at Charles Sturt University in New South Wales, Australia, which will appear in the July issue of the journal, “Computers in Human Behaviour.” What’s more, nearly 98% of the lonely users shared their relationship status publicly on Facebook instead of restricting it to just friends, and they even publicly shared their home address online, according to the study’s authors, associate professor Yeslam Al-Saggaf and lecture Sharon Neilson from CSU’s School of Computing and Mathematics.
Greek Scientist Discovers the ‘Algorithm of Sex’ It seems that genes play a kind of ‘game’ during sexual recombination. Now, a distinguished Greek scientist who works in the USA has found an algorithm to describe this game. Professor of computer science Christos Papadimitriou together with his colleagues of the University of California-Berkeley created an algorithm which explains sex from an evolutionary standpoint. It attempts to illustrate how sex makes it possible for genes to recombine into a new body, which in combination with natural selection in the environment creates a great diversity of life. The role of sex in evolution has always been considered paradoxical by biologists because through sexual recombination, the offspring inherits only the half of parents’ “good” genes. The innovation in the approach proposed by Papadimitriou lies in the analysis of the evolution and sex from the perspective of computing and game theory. The following two tabs change content below.
