Eight weeks of mindfulness meditation can rewire the brain and control depression symptoms

Is it possible to sort of “rewire” your brain so you can better control imposing symptoms of depression and angst? The short answer, according to recent new research, is yes, and it all it takes in large part is some “mindfulness meditation.” According to a study report produced by a team led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers, an eight-week program called mindfulness meditation was able to make measurable changes in parts of the brain associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress. The study is the first to document meditation-created changes to the brain.

Nanoparticles May Explain Moon Dirt’s Odd Behavior

The famously strange behavior of lunar soil may be caused by nanoparticles embedded in the dirt, a new study reports.

The study found that nanoparticles — specks of matter whose tiny size imparts exotic and often bizarre properties — are common in samples of moon dirt brought back to Earth by Apollo astronauts.

The discovery may explain why moon soil is such a poor conductor of heat, why it hovers above the lunar surface far longer than gravity should allow, and why it’s so sticky and abrasive — characteristics observed, and sometimes deplored, by moonwalking astronauts four decades ago.
