Use Your Body's Electrical Field To Uniquely Identify Yourself

Use Your Body's Electrical Field To Uniquely Identify Yourself | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

You are unique. This is one of the more obscure ways you're unique: An alternating current of different frequencies running through you causes a reaction that's noticeably different from anyone else's. Researchers from Dartmouth University are trying to put this difference to use by creating wearable electronics that respond to--and only to--their intended user.

Why We Are Addicted, Quite Literally, to Information

Why We Are Addicted, Quite Literally, to Information | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

We are addicted, quite literally, to information.Why is that?

 

It's all about dopamine — a much-researched neurotransmitter produced at the top of the brain stem which targets brain regions that control reward and movement. . .

[...] "When we receive some valuable piece of information, or perform some act that promotes our health and survival, such as eating, drinking, having sex or making large amounts of money, dopamine is released along what are called the pleasure pathways of the brain, providing us with a rewarding, even euphoric, experience. In fact our brain seems to value the dopamine more than the food or drink or sex itself," explains Coates.

Bio-Molecular Self-Assembly

Bio-Molecular Self-Assembly | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

Self-assembly is the process by which a system spontaneously assembles from discrete components without external guidance. For a successful self-assembly to take place, three things are required: geometry, energy, and attraction—all of which, in theory, can occur at many different scales.

Social Network Size Linked to Brain Size | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

Our brains are not as large as they are in order to provide each of us with the raw computational power to think our way out of a sticky situation, instead our brain size helps each of us to deal with the large and complex network of relationships we rely on to thrive.
