Does aging BEGIN in the brain? Development of new neurons slows down as we get older, followed by regular signs of aging

Can aging be slowed down or even reversed? The answer to that is yes, according to researchers from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. One needs only to look at the hypothalamus, where certain neural stem cells can both precipitate and reverse the aging process. For their study, the researchers made use of healthy mice. When the animals reached 10 months in … Continue reading Does aging BEGIN in the brain? Development of new neurons slows down as we get older, followed by regular signs of aging

But new research has found one more reason to learn this universal language: Music can actually make you smarter. Researchers from the University of Granada observed the neurological changes that occur … Continue reading Music improves your brain: Study finds musicians are better at solving problems and making decisions

Despite studies finding increases risk of cancer from cellphone radiation, the FDA claims they’re safe as long as you’re not a “heavy user”

A new government study presents data to suggest that mobile phone use is detrimental to humans because of all the non-ionizing radiation these devices emit. But not to worry, claims the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – we’re all apparently not using our cellphones enough for them to cause any significant harm, so keep on texting … Continue reading Despite studies finding increases risk of cancer from cellphone radiation, the FDA claims they’re safe as long as you’re not a “heavy user”

Probiotics fight depression: Healthy gut bacteria found to reduce symptoms

Taking probiotics to improve intestinal health may come with a bonus, as a new animal study revealed that the beneficial gut bacteria may also reduce depressive tendencies. A team of researchers at the Aarhus University in Denmark examined the effects of lactic acid bacteria in rat models as part of the study.

However you “identify,” there are only two types of brains: male and female

By natural design, gender is binary, indicated by XX and XY chromosomes and reinforced by the brain’s own wiring. Scientists at the NYU School of Medicine confirm that there are two types of brains, male and female, and they are wired distinctively different in regards to aggression and mating. By nature, male and female brains are not … Continue reading However you “identify,” there are only two types of brains: male and female
