Researchers at Brown University have developed a way to create "mini brains" – 3D arrangements of neural tissue that are able to transmit electrical synapses – that, at 25 cents apiece after fixed costs, could provide an efficient means of conducting neuroscience research.
Over the past 40 years, we have killed off 50% of marine life through overfishing, habitat destruction and climate change. But the international spotlight and a change in policy mean things are looking up
Look again. The dude behind the wheel is stretching his arms up like he’s dunking on someone—perhaps the execs at Google and Apple, as this thing is the “world’s first driverless bus,” according to manufacturer Yutong.
Daimler Trucks' progress in autonomous driving has just shifted gears, with the company fitting its a self-driving system to a Mercedez-Benz Actros to steer the truck down a stretch of the Autobahn, marking the first time an autonomous series production semi has been tested out on public roads.
Imagine for a moment if we could build a complete wiring diagram of a human brain – to map in detail every one of the hundred trillion or so synapses and roughly hundred billion neurons together with all the tiniest supporting mechanisms. What might that mean, and would it even be possible?
It’s October already and the northern hemisphere is preparing itself for more autumn signs and colours, while the southern hemisphere is basking in spring weather. We’d like to see your photos of the October wildlife near you
There is a body of evidence that suggests people in less fortunate positions when it comes to having appropriately located living arrangements are at a greater risk of falling into the categories mentioned above. Scientific evidence clearly shows that if people are poorly housed, they are much more likely to develop mental illnesses.
The cold economic fact is that it also costs taxpayers a significant amount of money annually in helping these people. AHURI research suggests that every high risk young person (under 25 years old) diverted from homelessness saves government (and consequently taxpayers) around $120,000 a year. And yet we ignore these unintended consequences of members of our community not having a place to call home. Our public housing waiting list is growing, but neither federal nor state governments have the funds to build the additional accommodation that is now so badly needed.
On ancestral lands, the Fond du Lac band in Minnesota is planting wild rice and restoring wetlands damaged by dams, industry, and logging. Their efforts are part of a growing trend by Native Americans to bring back traditional food sources and heal scarred landscapes.
