Brain experiment suggests consciousness relies on quantum entanglement

Brain experiment suggests consciousness relies on quantum entanglement

Supercomputers can beat us at chess and perform more calculations per second than the human brain. But there are other tasks our brains do on a regular basis that computers simply can’t match – interpreting events and situations and using imagination, creativity and problem-solving skills. Our brains are amazingly powerful computers, using not only neurons …

Mouse Study Suggests Surprising Link Between Nose Pinching and Alzheimer's Disease

Mouse Study Suggests Surprising Link Between Nose Pinching and Alzheimer’s Disease

A new study has found a tenuous but plausible link between picking your nose and increasing the risk of developing dementia. In cases where scratching the nose damages internal tissues, critical species of bacteria have a clearer path to the brain, which reacts to their presence in ways that resemble signs of Alzheimer’s disease. There …

Early data suggests plant-based foods may improve outcomes in HF

Early data suggests plant-based foods may improve outcomes in HF

The study should spur research into whether increasing dietary plant omega-3s reduces deaths and hospitalizations, an expert said. Increasing dietary intake of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, found in foods like nuts and canola oil, may be key to reducing risk of hospitalization, new study finds and death in patients with heart failure. Much research has …
