*Decreto nº 8.497 – Qual a real intenção do Governo Federal?* A comunidade médica brasileira recebeu com espanto e indignação, mas sem surpresa, o decreto nº 8.497 da Presidência da República, publicado no último dia 5 de agosto. Criado sob despretensioso e inofensivo objetivo de “formação do Cadastro Nacional de Especialistas”, o decreto traz uma série de artigos que versam sobre muito mais aspectos do que mera organização de informações sobre médicos especialistas brasileiros. Informações estas, já disponíveis ao Ministério da Saúde na base de dados do CFM (Conselho Federal de Medi... mais »

why does hair change colour and turn grey?

Aloyzio AchuttiemAMICOR - Há um dia
What determines the colour of hair? Most of us find our first “greys” by the time we turn 30, usually at the temples, then later, across the scalp. While many people find the salt and pepper look appealing, others go to great lengths to conceal these locks. The grey hair “rule of thumb” is that by the age of 50, half of the population have lost the colour in 50% of their hair. When researchers tested this rule, they found that 74% of people aged between 45 and 65 had grey hair, with an average intensity of 27%. Generally, men have more grey hair than women. Asians and Africans have le... mais »

Critics often dismiss panpsychism as hippie nonsense, but it has deep roots in the works of Aristotle, Plato, and Spinoza. Read more.

Laughter as a window on the infant mind *What makes a baby laugh? The answer might reveal a lot about the making of our minds, says Tom Stafford.* What makes babies laugh? It sounds like one of the most fun questions a researcher could investigate, but there’s a serious scientific reason why Caspar Addyman wants to find out. He’s not the first to ask this question. Darwin studied laughter in his infant son, and Freud formed a theory that our tendency to laugh originates in a sense of superiority. So we take pleasure at seeing another’s suffering – slapstick style pratfalls and acciden... mais »
