Surprising results show the fluidity of the "body schema"
"But can other people come to feel like extensions of our bodies just as objects can? In a recent paper, psychologist Tamer Soliman and his colleagues used the tool-based studies as inspiration to explore whether coordinating physical actions with other humans can lead us to integrate their bodies into our own body schema in much the same way that interacting with objects extends our perception of our physical boundaries."

A dying star located on the outskirts of the Milky Way is the hottest white dwarf ever found in our galaxy, boasting a record-setting temperature of 250,000 degrees Celsius despite the fact that it has already entered its cooling phase, according to a new study.
Writing in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, a team of astronomers from the University of Tübingen reported that analysis of ultraviolet spectra taken by the Hubble Space Telescope show that the white dwarf RX J0439.8-6809 has a temperature of a quarter of a million degrees.
Such extreme heat can only be reached by a star five times more massive than the sun, and even more remarkably, the white dwarf is already in the process of cooling down. At its peak about 1,000 years ago, RX J0439.8-6809 likely reached a maximum of 400,000 degrees.
Previously, the hottest temperature observed on a dying star was measured to be 200,000 degrees Celsius, the study authors said. For the sake of reference, our sun’s surface temperature has been a fairly constant 6,000 degrees since it was born 4.6 million years ago.
The study authors added that they witnessed an intergalactic gas cloud moving towards the Milky Way for the first time. This, they explained, would suggest that at least some galaxies gather new materials from deep space and use those substances to manufacture new stars.
The chemical composition of RX J0439.8-6809 is not yet fully understood. The star, which was first discovered two decades ago, appears to have both carbon and oxygen on its surface. Those elements are the products of the nuclear fusion of helium, but in most cases, that process occurs deep within the core of a star, the researchers said.
Recently, my geeky hobby photography went viral. I saw my photos pop up on blogs, websites and even in a clickbait article after I posted my first article on here. Since then I've taken some more photos in and around London and also on trips away to Malta and Dublin, so I thought I'd write a part two.

A new study reports conditions which are extremely noisy can alter taste perception for sweet and umami flavors.
"Eating is a fundamentally multisensory experience: we don’t just eat our food, we also see it, smell it, and hear ourselves chewing it. However, perception of non-food components of the dining experience can also influence flavor perception. For instance, desserts are rated as sweeter if they are presented on a white vs. black plate, and exposure to loud noise reduces affective food ratings."
“ un proyecto basado en unas gafas capaces de reconocer lo que hay a nuestro alrededor y transformarlo en audio, siendo así ideal para quien tiene problemas visuales. Las gafas, presentadas en eyesynth.com y descritas en kickstarter.com, donde están recaudando dinero, pueden medir la profundidad y localizar objetos con precisión, generando sonido fácil de entender, aunque no se usan palabras. Las Eyesynth usan un sonido especial, un nuevo lenguaje que el cerebro puede automatizar y que se transmite a través de los huesos de la cabeza, por lo que los oídos quedan libres para escuchar. En el vídeo es posible ver, en las pruebas realizadas, cómo hasta un niño es capaz de interpretar los sonidos generados.”
