Something simple like cupcakes, or kittens, or organising a shelf of books so the spines form a perfect rainbow (just me?). Take a moment to consider your particular mental image of that thing (actually do this. I’ll wait). Is that picture in colour or black and white? Where exactly on your internal screen of representation is it (left, right, top, bottom, dead centre…)? Is it big or small? Is it near or far? Moving or still? Light or da... mais »

Welcome to the neighbourhood: new dwarf galaxies discovered in orbit around the Milky Way Astronomers have discovered a ‘treasure trove’ of rare dwarf satellite galaxies orbiting our own Milky Way. The discoveries could hold the key to understanding dark matter, the mysterious substance which holds our galaxy together. Earlier surveys of the southern sky found very little, so we were not expecting to stumble on such treasure Vasily Belokurov A team of astronomers from the University of Cambridge have identified nine new dwarf satellites orbiting the Milky Way, the largest number ev... mais »

neurosciencestuff*The brain treats real and imaginary objects in the same way* The human brain can select relevant objects from a flood of information and edit out what is irrelevant. It also knows which parts belong to a whole. If, for example, we direct our attention to the doors of a house, the brain will preferentially process its windows, but not the neighbouring houses. Psychologists from Goethe University Frankfurt have now discovered that this also happens when parts of the objects are merely maintained in our memory./.../

Can you judge a man by his fingers? Link between relative lengths of index and ring fingers in men and behavior towards women Date: February 18, 2015 Source: McGill University Summary: Men with short index fingers and long ring fingers are on average nicer towards women. This phenomenon stems from their fetal life, and the hormones these men have been exposed to in their mother's womb. The findings might help explain why these men have more children. New research shows that men with short index fingers and long ring fingers are on average nicer towards women. *Credit: © igor / Fotolia*... mais »
