Why Are the Farmers Depressed and Suicidal?

Heather Callaghan, ContributorIs the same thing that’s destroying the bees also crippling our farmers?When Ginnie Peters’ farmer husband took his own life after a sudden mood shift, she really hit the nail on the head when she said:These chemicals that farmers use, look what they do to an insect. It ruins their nervous system. What is it doing to the farmer?No one can deny that farming is drastically different than it was in the 1950s, and today it requires extra demand, [...]

Out of Body and Near-Death Experiences May be Real Says Largest-Ever Study

A team based in the UK has spent the last four years seeking out cardiac arrest patients to analyse their experiences, and found that almost 40 per cent of survivors described having some form of “awareness” at a time when they were declared clinically dead.Experts currently believe that the brain shuts down within 20 to 30 seconds of the heart stopping beating – and that it is not possible to be aware of anything at all once that has happened.But scientists in the new s [...]

New Technology Can Test How Toxic a Substance is to Your DNA 

A technique for high throughput screening of substances that could cause DNA damage has been developed by scientists. The technology allows for testing of drugs and cosmetics that could pose a risk to human health, and assesses damage done to DNA, while reducing reliance on animal testing, researchers say.As more hand held and portable devices on the market are being developed for nanoparticle-based DNA sensing, many are able to detect and analyze organisms one-thousandth of the widt [...]

Nobel Prize Winners in Physiology or Medicine Discovered ‘GPS’ Inside Brain

A British-American and two Norwegian scientists were awarded this year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for discovering brain circuits that form an “inner GPS” system that helps us to navigate our environment.

Excert from online.wsj.com

Half of the prize was awarded to American-born John O’Keefe for identifying nerve cells that enable the creation of a spatial map that determines our sense of “place.” The other half of the prize was shared by a Norwegian couple, May-Britt Moser and Edvard I. Moser, who identified a separate set of nerve cells involved in navigation.

A sense of place and navigational ability are both central to our existence. Most memories are linked to a physical place, meaning that much information we remember and use in daily life has a spatial context to it.

By connecting electrodes to the brains of rats as they moved freely in a room, Dr. O’Keefe discovered that certain nerve cells got activated when the rat was in a particular spot. Crucially, the cells weren’t just registering the location, but also appeared to be making circuits constituting an inner map of the place.

If the rat was put in another part of the room, another set of nerve cells got activated. When the animal was returned to the original location, the original cells were reactivated. The upshot: The memory of a place was stored as a specific combination of these nerve or “place” cells. 

“The great surprise was that [hippocampus] was a spatial system,” recalled Dr. O’Keefe, at a briefing on Monday in London.

Regarded as the most prestigious prize for medical and physiological research, the eight million Swedish kronor ($1.1 million) Nobel award is given to recipients whose discoveries greatly enhance the understanding of life or the practice of medicine. The decision is made by the Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska Institute—a group of 50 professors whose 18-member working body evaluates nominations from scientists around the world and proposes top candidates.

Inducing Higher Intelligence and Heightened Senses with Gamma Brain Waves

Anna Hunt, Staff WriterWaking TimesBrainwave entrainment is a way to train the brain to synchronize to a certain frequency, such as gamma, beta, delta, theta and alpha. Each frequency matches a certain state of consciousness. For example, delta is the brainwave dominant while in an unconscious state such as sleeping; while theta and alpha inspire relaxation and help get away from our beta state of consciousness that, at a higher frequency, promotes stress and anxiety. Listening to low [...]

New Study Provides Insight into How Piquing Curiosity Changes Our Brains

Curiosity helps learning and memory, scientists say. Anonymous painter, 15th century - Cahiers de Science et Vie no. 114.
Anonymous painter, 15th century – Cahiers de Science et Vie no. 114.

Excerpt from

The more curious we are about a topic, the easier it is to learn information about that topic. A new study carried out by California University scientists provides insights into what happens in our brains when curiosity is piqued.

Curiosity helps learning and memory, scientists say.
Participants in the study first rated their curiosity about the answers to a series of trivia questions. Later, they had their brains scanned via functional magnetic resonance imaging while they learned the answers to these questions.

The participants were presented with a selected trivia question and while they waited for the answer to pop up on the screen, they were shown a picture of a neutral, unrelated face.

Afterwards, they performed a surprise recognition memory test for the presented faces, followed by a memory test for the answers to the trivia questions.

As expected, when people were highly curious to find out the answer to a question, they were better at learning that information.
More surprising, however, was that once their curiosity was aroused, they showed better learning of entirely unrelated information that they encountered but were not necessarily curious about.

The participants were also better able to retain the information learned during a curious state across a 24-hour delay...

In addition, they found that when learning was motivated by curiosity, there was increased activity in the hippocampus, a brain region that is important for forming new memories, as well as increased interactions between the hippocampus and the dopamine reward circuit...

NASA Eyes Crew Deep Sleep Option for Mars Mission

Excerpt from news.discovery.com

A NASA-backed study explores an innovative way to dramatically cut the cost of a human expedition to Mars -- put the crew in stasis...

The deep sleep, called torpor, would reduce astronauts’ metabolic functions with existing medical procedures. Torpor also can occur naturally in cases of hypothermia.

“Therapeutic torpor has been around in theory since the 1980s and really since 2003 has been a staple for critical care trauma patients in hospitals," aerospace engineer Mark Schaffer, with SpaceWorks Enterprises in Atlanta, said at the International Astronomical Congress in Toronto this week. "Protocols exist in most major medical centers for inducing therapeutic hypothermia on patients to essentially keep them alive until they can get the kind of treatment that they need.”

Coupled with intravenous feeding, a crew could be put in hibernation for the transit time to Mars, which under the best-case scenario would take 180 days one-way.


So far, the duration of a patient’s time in torpor state has been limited to about one week...

Economically, the payoff looks impressive. Crews can live inside smaller ships with fewer amenities like galleys, exercise gear and of course water, food and clothing. One design includes a spinning habitat to provide a low-gravity environment to help offset bone and muscle loss.

Hemp Repairs Damaged DNA

by hightimes.comScientists have discovered astounding new evidence that suggests hemp proteins have the capacity to repair damaged DNA -- a phenomenon that occurs in all humans as the result of aging. While the majority of people are aware that DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is present within most living organisms, there is perhaps a larger percentage who are completely oblivious to the fact that this hereditary material accumulates damage in a manner similar to wear and tea [...]
