Color Plays Musical Chairs In the Brain

Color Plays Musical Chairs In the Brain | curating your interests | Scoop.it

But Noë's more interested in color as an ecological property -- a feature of the way light and surfaces interact. Like Goethë, he believes that color is fluid, changing, open to interpretation. We think of it as stable, but it's not. It can look one way under one light, one way under another, different when you turn it different ways or notice a new highlight. By his estimation, "It’s not... intrinsic to the surface of the leaf that it is green. It's greenness is in the way it behaves in relation to lighting."

Why aren’t we all tall?

Why aren’t we all tall? | curating your interests | Scoop.it

There’s a fair amount of social science and anecdata that tall males are more reproductively fit. More precisely, males one to two standard deviations above the norm in height seem to be at the “sweet spot” as an idealized partner (e.g., leading males). And, short men often have fewer children. Short women will pair up with tall men. Tall women will generally not pair up with shorter men. The question then has to be asked: why isn’t natural selection producing a situation where we’re all tall?

Sean P Burns's curator insight, February 5, 3:19 PM

Two areas along the Nile basin have been perceived as being a new siting of possible Egyptian pyramids. One of the pyramids could represent the largest ever discovered based on the size of its plateau. These mounds of earth seem to represent eroded material that has similar shapes and size that seems to make clear distinction that they represent ancient pyramids.

This color-enhanced view -- taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter as the satellite flew overhead -- shows the terrain around the rover's landing site within Gale Crater on Mars. Colors were enhanced to bring out subtle differences, showing that the landing region is not as colorful as regions to the south, closer to Mount Sharp, where Curiosity will eventually explore. In reality, the blue colors are more gray.

Research Shows How Computation Can Predict Group Conflict

Research Shows How Computation Can Predict Group Conflict | curating your interests | Scoop.it

When conflict breaks out in social groups, individuals make strategic decisions about how to behave based on their understanding of alliances and feuds in the group. But it's been challenging to quantify the underlying trends that dictate how individuals make predictions, given they may only have seen a small number of fights or have limited memory. In a new study, scientists at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery at the University of Wisconsin-Madison develop a computational approach to determine whether individuals behave predictably.

Leila Yazdi's curator insight, December 12, 2013 7:08 PM

A major breakthrough in the treatment of morphine and heorin addiction was found. Scientists have discovered a way to stop the addiction of both heroin and morphine while still acting as a pain killer. This will potentially lead to a new drug that can prevent the addiction of morphine and heroin, both of which are highly addictive drugs. This is how the drug works: "The drug (+)-naloxone automatically shuts down the addiction. It shuts down the need to take opioids, it cuts out behaviours associated with addiction, and the neurochemistry in the brain changes -- dopamine, which is the chemical important for providing that sense of 'reward' from the drug, is no longer produced."
