Coronary Heart Disease Background - Coronary Heart Disease Health Information - NY Times Health | Way Cool Science Material | Scoop.it

Coronary artery disease (CAD), also called heart disease or ischemic heart disease, results from a complex process known as atherosclerosis (commonly called "hardening of the arteries"). In atherosclerosis, fatty deposits (plaques) of cholesterol and other cellular waste products build up in the inner linings of the heart’s arteries. This causes blockage of arteries (ischemia) and prevents oxygen-rich blood from reaching the heart. There are many steps in the process leading to atherosclerosis, some not fully understood.

How Our Brains Set the World Spinning

How Our Brains Set the World Spinning | Way Cool Science Material | Scoop.it

If there’s ever excuse to publish an optical illusion as cool as the “Rotating Snakes,” I’ll take it. This illusion was invented in 2003 by Akiyoshi Kitaoka of Ritsumeikan University in Japan, and ever since, Kitaoka and other scientists have been trying to figure out why it works. A new paper by Stephen Macknik at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix may have the answer.
