Young People’s Friendships Affect Their Health Later On

By Peter Dockrill | Science Alert

how to make friends

People often think it’s the quality of their friendships that counts as opposed to the quantity, but a new study shows that the number of friends we have when we’re young has a significant impact on our health later in life. As we get older, the quantity appears to matter less, and it’s the quality of our relationships with those we hold dear that confers the most benefits as we age.

Researchers from the University of Rochester in the US have conducted the latest chapter of an ongoing 30-year study looking at the social interactions of female students who once went to school there. Lead author Cheryl Carmichael got in touch with students who participated as 20-year-old undergraduates in a Rochester social interactions study in the 1970s, then again as 30-year-old adults a decade later. Having tracked down 133 of the original 222 participants, she was able to gauge the possible links between their social lifestyles when they were young and their mental and physical well-being in middle age.

The findings, published in Psychology and Aging, suggest that our friend count does actually matter, but only while we’re young. According to Carmichael, a greater frequency and volume of social interactions when we’re 20 years old is beneficial as we get older because the experiences give us a broader social tool set that we can draw upon later, and this in turn benefits our health and overall longevity.

“It’s often around this age that we meet people from diverse backgrounds, with opinions and values that are different from our own, and we learn how to best manage those differences,” she said in a press release.

However, keeping lots of pals around by the time we’re 30 is moot as far as our physiological health later is concerned, but participants who reported intimate and satisfying relationships with their friends in their 30s also reported high levels of well-being in middle age.

Interestingly, while the research draws a benefits link between quantity of friendships for 20-somethings and quality of friendships for 30-somethings, one doesn’t necessarily follow on from the other. The researchers were surprised to find that the socially active 20-year-old students with high friend counts weren’t necessarily successful in finding quality relationships a decade later.

What’s particularly important, regardless of how old you are, is to surround yourself with as many good friends as you can find, as a wide body of research links poor social connections with early mortality.

“In fact, having few social connections is equivalent to tobacco use,” said Carmichael, “and it’s higher than for those who drink excessive amounts of alcohol, or who suffer from obesity.”

Spying on Subconscious Feelings – Part 3

By Jill Mattson | Jill’s Wings of Light

subconscious mind

We are focusing on one of many fascinating uses of the freeware program [of Sharry Edwards, of the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth], nanoVoice! (Try it at www.nanoVoice.org…but so you know, Sharry does not offer a MAC version, sorry) The NanoVoice graphs your emotions -even the subconscious ones! The nanoVoice graphs our emotions, whether or not we are conscious of them.

Our feelings affect us far more than we suspect: People unknowingly project their subliminal feelings onto others. For example, a person withdraws, not allowing anyone to get close, while he perceives that others have abandoned him.

We clothe dark feelings in an acceptable light. Anger is often disguised as a righteous reaction. Subconscious expectations set up interpersonal difficulties. For example, we do not voice our expectations, yet we are wounded when they are not met.

Unconscious feelings can trigger other people’s behavior. For example, Bob believes that he is “no good” and radiates this feeling. Those nearby feel this energy, subconsciously pick up on it and act accordingly. Subtly Bob conditioned others to treat him with low regard.

A person is rarely aware when his ego directs situations. When we are not conscious of it, our ego is extraordinarily hard to manage. Usually we are clueless about subconscious feelings, illustrating that it is difficult to know ourselves from the inside out. Negative emotions spread to those in close proximity. Just like second-hand smoke inflicts damage, so do our toxic emotions. Yet, we steadfastly believe that we can hide our feelings without any impact on others.

Sharry Edwards created the nanoVoice,” giving us inner knowledge so we can better navigate emotional challenges. The nanoVoice allows us to view our underlying emotions and access buried feelings. This unveils confusion, sheds light on indecision, and depicts ego issues. These revelations enable us to acknowledge, resolve and release negative emotional habits.

In addition to showing your individual pitches in your voice, this tool has a button to push in which you get a general analysis of your voice.  There are many more uses of this tool, which are described in the book on BioAcoustics, see Secret Sounds Ultimate Healing at www. Jills Wingsoflight.com. Also The Healing Flower Symphonies at www.JillsWingsOfLight.com release unwanted negative emotional baggage.   Hats off to Sharry Edwards for this incredible gift!

Spying on Subconscious Feelings – Part 1

By Jill Mattson | * Jill’s Wings of Light

subconscious mind

We spend our formative years in school, developing our rational minds, but our emotions receive no formal attention. High divorce rates, job loss, employment stress, accidents, deaths, personal struggles, changing hormones, financial problems and health issues challenge everyone’s emotional health. Yet, as a society, we stubbornly treat the development of our emotions as a low priority. Since emotions are invisible, they are treated as if they don’t exist.

Meanwhile, emotions affect the bottom line of our health, happiness and wellbeing. Developing the mind is important, but so is improving our emotional strength. Think about a world in which many people display emotional mastery and harmony! Emotional development is crucial for personal growth, but the cumulative affect impacts our entire society.

Sharry Edwards, a true genius of our time and a pioneer in sound healing, developed a system to monitor emotions, even the subconscious ones! Sharry’s signature system, BioAcoustics, maps and balances frequencies in our body, resulting in astonishing health improvements. Sharry has also now gifted us with a frequency based personality profiler, the nanoVoice. Hold on to your hats… it is free!

The software freeware will take your voice and break into component pitches. Yes our voice is a combination of all of the frequencies within – our emotions, thoughts and body! More on how to best use this program next message!

Dutch Inventor Aims to Harness the Waves to Clean Up the Seas

By Sophie Mignon | Phys Org

Rough Ocean-compressed

The Dutch inventor [21-year old Boyan Slat] of a ground-breaking project to remove millions of tonnes of plastics floating in “great garbage patches” in the oceans Wednesday unveiled his first prototype to help clean up the seas.

Boyan Slat’s innovative idea—first drawn on a paper napkin when he was still in high school—seeks to use ocean currents to gather up the mass of bottles, plastic crates and other detritus sullying the planet’s waters, instead of going out on an army of boats to haul it in.

“All those plastic objects, big things like bottles, crates, etc will be cut down to micro pieces over the next few decades if we don’t do anything about it,” he told reporters in The Hague explaining his project The Ocean Cleanup.

“The question is: is this a future we accept will happen or do you want to create a future where the oceans become clean again?”

According to the Ocean Cleanup project, eight million tonnes of plastics enter the oceans every year, much of which has accumulated in five garbage patches, with the largest in the Pacific between California and Hawaii.

The micro pieces released as the plastics break down are dispersed through the seas, entering the food chain with harmful effects for all marine life.

But the 21-year-old believes his project can harness the power of the currents to help the great cleanup.

“Why move through the ocean if the ocean can move through you?” Slat asked at the press conference in the harbour in the port of Scheveningen, on the outskirts of The Hague.

His idea is a 100-kilometre (60-mile) long V-shaped barrier made up of large buoys which floats on the ocean, trailing a three-metre (nine-foot) long curtain from its arms into the water.

The aim is to stop the plastic as it bobs along, gathering into one place so it can then be gathered up into a container and taken for recycling.

A smaller 100-metre (feet) prototype unveiled Wednesday will be taken out into the North Sea on Thursday for a year-long series of tests some 23 kilometres (12 nautical miles) off the Dutch coast.

Amazing New Machine Turns Food Waste into Energy

By Anna Scanlon | Natural Society

 

ReduceFoodWasteGraphic-680x380-Modified

An Israeli company, HomeBioGas, has created a portable machine that turns food waste into renewable energy for cooking or electricity, and its byproduct can even be used as plant fertilizer. [1]

The machine, which is temporarily available for $995, is part of an initiative to help create more sustainable energy as well as provide electricity and gas for cooking in parts of the world where it is spotty or lacking. The machine is also portable, and can be easily packed up and moved, which makes it a fantastic invention for those without a permanent home looking to provide electricity and gas to temporary shelters.

It differs from other compost in that it not only accepts plants, but also meat, dairy, fats, oils, and even used kitty litter. The machine will compost it and release biogas to the tune of about 6 kilowatt hours of energy. This gives individuals using the HomeBioGas enough gas for about three hours of cooking.

The European Union also funded a project to help bring these machines to the Palestinian village of al-Awja. One man in the village who received a machine, stated why it is so useful for him and those he lives near: “(In) this area … there is no water or electricity. We have no services.” [1]

A private investor has also helped fill a need in Uganda by providing an orphanage with a machine. Yair Teller, cofounder of the HomeBioGas system, told Jewish Business News that the kids were delighted with it.

“These children lit up when they discovered the HomeBiogas magic — that they can transform their waste and produce their very own energy,” he said.

Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Energy has also purchased several units in order to cut down on the amount of wood the citizens rely on for heating.

In addition to those living without gas and electricity, the company is seeking to target affluent western consumers who are interested in reducing their carbon footprint.

What You Don’t Know About Lake Electricity Could Kill You

By  Steve Osunsami, Michael Del Moro, and Daisha Riley| * Good Morning America

boy jumps in lake

Carmen Johnson, 15, was a high school cheerleader who enjoyed life, got good grades and loved to be on the water.

It was a terrible accident on the water that took Carmen’s life on April 16, and her parents, Jimmy and Casey, are warning others about the potential dangers.

The Johnsons say Carmen, their youngest child, was electrocuted while swimming in the lake behind their home. Her parents told ABC News that the electrical currents came from rusty electrical work at the dock in their backyard.

It’s called electric shock drowning — when a current, usually from a short circuit in the wiring of a dock, marina or boat, spreads through the water, and someone in the water is shocked and drowns.

Carmen’s father, Jimmy Johnson, said he initially thought something was pulling Carmen down into the water.

“I was in a position where I could have saved her if it would have been anything but electrocution in the water,” her father said.

In fact, Jimmy and his son, Zach, both jumped into the lake to try and save Carmen. They were nearly killed themselves.

“It was instant. It just grabbed hold of me,” Jimmy Johnson said of the electric shock.

Zach said, “It felt like your arm or leg is asleep and it hurts to move, and you can’t move, but it’s your entire body. And you’re trying to tread water but can’t swim.”

The two were saved when Casey Johnson two were saved when Casey Johnson ran and turned off the power switch. A friend who had been in the water with Carmen was also injured but she survived.

In Missouri in 2012, Alexandra Anderson, 13, and her 8-year-old brother, Brayden, died while swimming near their family’s dock. Their mother has been lobbying state lawmakers to make docks safer.

New App Walkonomics Shows You the Most Nature-Filled Route to Where You Want to Go

By Megan Treacy | treehugger

walkonomics

Studies have shown time and again that being in nature helps to calm us, helps us to focus and is just plain essential to happiness. From taking a lap around a park to a trek through the woods, getting out and seeing some green does us a world of good.

We’ve written before about the Walkonomics app, which helps you find the best route for getting from point A to B based on walkability. The app takes into account things like safety, ease of crossing and even hilliness. It now has a new version that lets you find the path that puts you closest to nature, or more specifically, has the most trees, so that you can add a little nature immersion to your day-to-day travels.

The app currently covers seven cities, including London (central), Paris, New York (all boroughs), San Francisco, Toronto, Buenos Aires, and Glasgow and this new upgrade was inspired by the walks developer Adam Davies took when his son was first born.

Science Reveals Freddie Mercury’s Singing Secrets

By John Johnson | Newser

FreddieMercury-680x380Freddie Mercury had one of the most memorable voices in music, and now researchers have unlocked some of the mystery behind it. For one thing, his vocal chords moved faster than normal. But the bigger part of the puzzle involves something called subharmonics, which the Consequence of Sound defines as a “singing style where the ventricular folds vibrate along with the vocal folds.” It is most famously employed by Tuvan throat singers, and while Mercury didn’t achieve Tuvan levels, it’s still quite a feat for a rock vocalist to even come close. Subharmonics help “in creating the impression of a sound production system driven to its limits, even while used with great finesse,” write the Austrian, Czech, and Swedish researchers in the Logopedics Phoniatrics Vocology journal. “These traits, in combination with the fast and irregular vibrato, might have helped create Freddie Mercury’s eccentric and flamboyant stage persona.”

Gum Disease Opens Up the Body to a Host of Infections

By Laura Biel | Science News

GirlBrushingTeeth-680x380

For centuries, the mouth and the body have been disconnected — at least when it comes to health care. Through the Middle Ages and beyond, teeth fell under the care of barbers, who could shave a customer and pull a molar with equal skill. In the 1700s, French surgeon Pierre Fauchard published the Treatise on Teeth, establishing dentistry as its own science.

Across the channel in England, as physicians gained stature in the 19th century, surgeons and dentists engaged in a power struggle. In the modern United States, after medicine became linked to employer insurance and Medicare, the fissure between medicine and dentistry widened. Insurance coverage began at the throat.

So when Salomon Amar, a periodontal specialist at Boston University, began exploring links between oral bacteria and heart disease in animal studies in the late 1990s, reactions were lukewarm. “Many cardiologists thought we were a bit crazy,” he says. Skepticism still abounds, but the same molecular tools that have dramatically changed understanding of the gut microbiome are now allowing scientists to track and examine bacteria in the mouth. Advocates of a connection between the artery disease atherosclerosis and microbes are hoping to find convincing proof of their suspicions, while exploring links between ailing gums and other conditions, including cancer, arthritis, diabetes and even Alzheimer’s disease.

The work has profound implications for public health, given that more than 65 million American adults are thought to have periodontal disease, which occurs when bacterial overgrowth inflames the gums and can lead to erosion of gums and bone. If it turns out that periodontal decay drives other diseases, doctors would have a new, and relatively simple, means of prevention.

Wenche Borgnakke, a dental researcher at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, has been making this case for years, citing “solid evidence that periodontal treatment has an effect on systemic disease.” Shepoints to a study published last year in the journal Medicine comparing patients on dialysis who received periodontal treatment with those who did not. Those getting treatment had an almost 30 percent lower risk of pneumonia and hospitalization from infections. Another study published earlier this year found that gum disease is associated with a roughly 10 percent higher mortality over 10 years among patients with kidney problems.

Foul mouth

To date, more than 500 scientific papers have weighed in on the connection between atherosclerosis and gum disease. Officially, the theory remains “biologically plausible,” but unproven, according to the American Heart Association’s formal position. Some concepts are undisputed: For one, the microbes that live in the mouth don’t stay in the mouth. The simple act of brushing allows bacteria clinging to the teeth and gums to leak into the bloodstream.

As the posters at the dentist’s office attest, neglected oral hygiene encourages bacterial growth, allowing the microbes to breed on and between teeth, as well as under the gums. What the illustrations don’t show is that these microorganisms form a biofilm, a tough microbial community bound together with sugar molecules in a thin coating. This is the plaque your dentist warns you about.

“If you do not brush your teeth, it will sit there and accumulate. As that plaque gets thicker and thicker, there is less and less oxygen in the deepest layers,” Borgnakke says. Safely sheltered, the innermost plaque starts to favor anaerobic bacteria, which, when they escape into the blood, can survive in the oxygen-starved nooks and crannies deep inside the body.

As plaque builds up, gums get irritated, swell and draw more blood into the distressed tissue. Eventually, chemicals produced by the biofilm break down the thin layer of cells that form a boundary between the gums and the blood vessels. Periodontitis officially occurs when gum and bone tissue starts to deteriorate. The space between the tooth and gums forms a pocket; dentists measure the depth of the pockets to determine the severity of infection. “We usually think of an infection as some bug from the outside that attacks the body,” says Borgnakke. “In this case, it’s an internal infection.”

It was once thought that only a handful of microbial species were involved in the development of periodontitis, but the latest studies have revealed that many of the microbes responsible for gum disease come from “previously underappreciated species,” according to a 2015 report in Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology. Because many bacteria resist growth in a laboratory, only a small portion of some 500 to 700 species of oral microbes have been well characterized.

One aggressive pathogen, an organism called Porphyromonas gingivalis, has antennae that stick out and can pry open the space between two cells, Borgnakke says. “This is a really, really nasty bug.” Within minutes of invading blood vessels, P. gingivalis and its gang of accomplices are ferried to distant sites, where they can set up outposts. “Bacteria that normally live in the mouth are found in every organ in the body, and even muscle cells,” she says.

The body doesn’t take this assault lying down. The immune system gets agitated and tends to stay in a state of slow simmer. But the bacteria that cause periodontal disease have a knack for turning the body’s defense on its head, according to a 2015 review in Nature Reviews Immunology. Case in point: Common white blood cells called neutrophils are deployed to the failing gums — where they not only fail to control the infection, but also end up releasing enzymes that further destroy tissue. The immune system also releases an avalanche of chemicals designed to help control the infection. For example, the liver starts producing C-reactive protein, a molecule that has such an important role in signaling the rise of heart disease that it is considered a risk factor by some researchers.

Cymatics Insights: Sound into Form

By Brendan D. Murphy | Waking Times

ShriChakraYantra-Om-680x380

It was Ernst Chladni (1756–1827), a German jurist, physicist, and musician now known as the Father of Acoustics, who had developed the precursor to Cymatics (to kyma, the wave; ta kymatika, matters pertaining to waves, wave matters.) in the early 1800s. Chladni repeated the pioneering experiments of Robert Hooke of Oxford University who, on July 8, 1680, had observed the nodal patterns associated with the vibrations of glass plates. Hooke ran a violin bow along the edge of a plate covered with flour, and saw the nodal patterns emerge.[i]

In a demonstration to Napoleon in 1809, Chladni placed sand in a plate fixed to a pedestal and drew a violin bow around the plate, causing the sand to shift into intricate designs, effectively making sound waves visible. In the 1900s Hans Jenny, building on Chladni’s work, studied and documented the effects of sound vibrations on fluids, powders, and liquid paste. He would place these substances on a steel plate and then vibrate the plate at different frequencies, observing that a given vibrational frequency would organize the substance(s) into particular patterns. Jenny also developed the tonoscope for observing the action of the human voice on various materials in various media. This is a simple apparatus into which the experimenter can speak without any intermediate electroacoustic unit. Thus, vibrations are imparted to a diaphragm on which sand, powder, or a liquid are placed as indicators. Speaking actually produces on this diaphragm figures that correspond, as it were, to the sound spectrum of a vowel. The pattern is characteristic not only of the sound but also the pitch of the speech or song. The indicator material and also the nature of the diaphragm are, of course, also determinative factors.[ii]

When “Om,” the Hindu primordial sound of creation, is intoned into a tonoscope it forms in the substance the Sri Yantra, the visual representation of the Om chant and the vibration behind the cosmos itself[iii], the “sound” of the aetheric medium or “fabric” of space. Tellingly, it displays a self-similar/fractal interlaced tetrahedra-within-concentric-circles motif. (Technically, a tetrahedron isn’t fractal in itself because fractality is defined by the phi/Golden Ratio, and the tetrahedron is not based on phi, as Dan Winter emphatically instructs.) Thus we see that the Hindus knew thousands of years ago that sound possessed geometry, or sound into form is a fundamental truth of reality. The Om chant itself is one for expanding consciousness by developing resonance with the cosmos. (Remember, too, that sound waves exist in three dimensions!)

In Jenny’s Cymatics, we find images of his work demonstrating the increase in geometrical complexity in matter that occurs with an increase in vibration: what starts out as a relatively simple and spare pattern will grow in detail and complexity as the pitch increases—while still retaining the same basic theme. This makes some sense in that the higher a frequency rises, the more informational complexity it can code for, and the more complex the data, form, or geometry becomes. Frequency determines form. As vibrational frequencies shift, they move through harmonic gradations within the aether. These gradations work, as noted, as do the harmonics of music; they are octave-based. Donald Andrews found through his research that identical shapes in the size ratio of 2:1 produced the same fundamental tone but an octave apart.[iv]

“Flying Vaccination” against ZIKA from GE Mosquitos?

gm mosquito

By Jon Rappoport | NoMoreFakeNews

Zika: could GE mosquitoes bite, deliver flying vaccine?

Zika: could be the ideal fake epidemic to stir “need” for airborne vaccination: “we must do something to stop the spread of the virus”   No need to mandate shots: release mosquitoes to deliver them.

People are discussing whether genetically engineered mosquitoes could have spread Zika, the virus that causes nothing.

Rather, look to the future, when such biting mosquitoes could deliver flying vaccinations against the virus that causes nothing.

Related Article:Robo Bees and the Synthetic Reality Agenda

In previous articles, I’ve established that the connection between the Zika virus and cases of birth defects in Brazil is entirely and utterly unproven. It is hype, not science.

But that isn’t stopping the World Health Organization, the biggest medical propaganda agency in the world, from promoting Zika hysteria to the moon.

In the wake of this madness…

Here are a few hints and clues about a possible flying mosquito vaccinator:

sciencemag.org, 3/18/2010, “Researchers Turn Mosquitoes Into Flying Vaccinators”:

“…A group of Japanese researchers has developed a mosquito that spreads vaccine instead of disease. Even the researchers admit, however, that regulatory and ethical problems will prevent the critters from ever taking wing—at least for the delivery of human vaccines. …No regulatory agency would sign off on that, says molecular biologist Robert Sinden of Imperial College London. Releasing the mosquitoes would also mean vaccinating people without their informed consent, an ethical no-no. Yoshida concedes that the mosquito would be ‘unacceptable’ as a human vaccine-delivery mechanism.”

However, in the midst of forced hysteria about Zika, or the next virus, or the one after that—each said to be on the verge of causing a global holocaust—the so-called ethical considerations could go out the window. What degree of ethics was involved, in the 1990s, when GMO crops were allowed to be planted, without human safety studies, without any oversight?

If not mosquitoes as the vaccine-delivery system, how about parasites?

Science Daily, 9/11/2013, “Mosquito bites deliver potential new malaria vaccine”:

“’In this paper we show that genetically engineered parasites are a promising, viable option for developing a malaria vaccine, and we are currently engineering the next generation of attenuated parasite strains with the aim to enter clinical studies soon.’ …For the first time, researchers created a weakened version of the human malaria parasite by altering its DNA. They tested the safety of the new modified parasite by injecting six human volunteers through mosquito bites. Five of the six volunteers showed no infection with the parasite, suggesting that the new genetic technique has potential as the basis for a malaria vaccine.”

As they say, what could possibly go wrong?

And now, here is a peek into where Japanese researchers pioneering mosquito-vaccinators obtained their funding.

From AFP, 10/24/2008:

“The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation awarded 100,000 dollars each on Wednesday to scientists in 22 countries including funding for a Japanese proposal to turn mosquitoes into ‘flying syringes’ delivering vaccines… Among the proposals receiving funding was one from Hiroyuki Matsuoka at Jichi Medical University in Japan. ‘(Matsuoka) thinks it may be possible to turn mosquitoes that normally transmit disease into “flying syringes,” so that when they bite humans they deliver vaccines,’ the Gates Foundation said.”

Who wouldn’t feel comfortable about Bill Gates spearheading this program? Answer: any human with a few operating brain cells.

As technically difficult as the program may be—and as fraught with “ethical considerations”—don’t underestimate the madness of the perpetrators.

A year from now, five years from now, you might read this sort of declaration from the World Health Organization:

“People remember the Zika virus and the threat it posed to our human future, before the heroic efforts of researchers and public-health officials managed to get it under control. And now with the new SanDab-3 virus spreading and spiraling out of control, we are poised to permit the release of 32 million mosquitoes who have been altered so they can deliver a SanDab vaccine to millions of endangered people all over the planet. It is our best option at this time, during the crisis…”

Phony “epidemics” (e.g., SARSSwine FluWest NileEbolaZika) haven’t stopped the march of science. The march of science-propaganda invented these scare-constructs in the first place. It stands to reason that back-end payoffs are the theme of such campaigns.

One of the prime payoffs is new vaccines. And if a delivery system (biting insects) can be created beyond the possibility of recall, so much the better.

All it takes is a high enough degree of engendered public fear.

That’s what the “epidemics” are: contagions of fear.

Crows Caught on Camera Fashioning Special Hook Tools

By Jolyon Troscianko & Christian Rutz | Science Daily

CROWS_927303f.jpg.Scientists have been given an extraordinary glimpse into how wild New Caledonian crows make and use ‘hooked stick tools’ to hunt for insect prey.

Dr Jolyon Troscianko, from the University of Exeter, and Dr Christian Rutz, from the University of St Andrews, have captured first video recordings documenting how these tropical corvids fashion these particularly complex tools in the wild.

The pair developed tiny video ‘spy-cameras’ which were attached to the crows, to observe their natural foraging behaviour.

They discovered two instances of hooked stick tool making on the footage they recorded, with one crow spending a minute making the tool, before using it to probe for food in tree crevices and even in leaf litter on the ground.

The findings are reported in the Royal Society’s journal Biology Letters on Wednesday, December 23.

Dr Troscianko is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Exeter’s Biosciences Department based at the Penryn Campus in Cornwall, who worked on the project while at the University of Birmingham.

He said: “While fieldworkers had previously obtained brief glimpses of hooked stick tool manufacture, the only video footage to date came from baited feeding sites, where tool raw materials and probing tasks had been provided to crows by scientists. We were keen to get close-up video of birds making these tools under completely natural conditions.”

Study Shows Even Earthworms Have Free Will

By Andrew Gordus, Navin Pokala, Sagi Levy, Steven W. Flavell, Cornelia I. Bargmann | *Science Daily

Summary: Even worms have free will. If offered a delicious smell, for example, a roundworm will usually stop its wandering to investigate the source, but sometimes it won’t. Just as with humans, the same stimulus does not always provoke the same response, even from the same individual.

New research at Rockefeller University, published online in Cell, offers a new neurological explanation for this variability, derived by studying a simple three-cell network within the roundworm brain.

“We found that the collective state of the three neurons at the exact moment an odor arrives determines the likelihood that the worm will move toward the smell. So, in essence, what the worm is thinking about at the time determines how it responds,” says study author Cori Bargmann, Torsten N. Wiesel Professor, head of the Lulu and Anthony Wang Laboratory of Neural Circuits and Behavior. “It goes to show that nervous systems aren’t passively waiting for signals from outside, they have their own internal patterns of activity that are as important as any external signal when it comes to generating a behavior.”

The researchers went a step deeper to tease out the dynamics within the network. By changing the activity of the neurons individually and in combination, first author Andrew Gordus, a research associate in the lab, and his colleagues could pinpoint each neuron’s role in generating variability in both brain activity and the behavior associated with it.

The human brain has 86 billion neurons and 100 trillion synapses, or connections, among them. The brain of the microscopic roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans, by comparison, has 302 neurons and 7,000 synapses. So while the worm’s brain cannot replicate the complexity of the human brain, scientists can use it to address tricky neurological questions that would be nearly impossible to broach in our own brains.

Worms spend their time wandering, looking for decomposing matter to eat. And when they smell it, they usually stop making random turns and travel straight toward the source. This change in behavior is initially triggered by a sensory neuron that perceives the smell and feeds that information to the network the researchers studied. As the worms pick up the alluring fruity smell of isoamyl alcohol, the neurons in the network transition into a low activity state that allows them to approach the odor. But sometimes the neurons remain highly active, and the worm continues to wander around — even though its sensory neuron has detected the odor.

By recording the activity of these neurons, Gordus and colleagues found that there were three persistent states among the three neurons: All were off, all were on, or only one, called AIB, was on. If all were off, then, when the odor signal arrived, they stayed off. If all were on, they often, but not always, shut off. And, in the third and most telling scenario, if AIB alone was active when the odor arrived, everything shut off. “This means that for AIB, context matters. If it’s on alone, its activity will drop when odor is added, but if it’s on with the rest of the network, it has difficulty dropping its activity with the others,” Gordus says.

AIB is the first neuron in the network to receive the signal, which it then relays to the other two network members, known as RIM and AVA; AVA sends out the final instruction to the muscles. When the researchers shut off RIM and AVA individually and together, they found AIB’s response to the odor signal improved. This suggests that input from these two neurons competes with the sensory signal as it feeds down through the network.

Young Babies Don’t Experience Tickles in the Way You Think They Do

By Cell Press | Science Daily

BabyTickles-1960718_m-680x380When you tickle the toes of newborn babies, the experience for them isn’t quite as you would imagine it to be. That’s because, according to new evidence reported in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on October 19, infants in the first four months of life apparently feel that touch and wiggle their feet without connecting the sensation to you.

“Our findings are really the first to address what is quite a fundamental question about our sensory experience in early life,” says Andrew Bremner of Goldsmiths, University of London. “When young babies feel a touch on their hand, can they appreciate where that touch is in the outside world?”

It now appears the answer is no. Bremner and the study’s first author Jannath Begum Ali made this discovery by showing something that might seem paradoxical at first. When adults cross their hands or feet and someone touches them, they make more mistakes in identifying the origin of the sensation they’ve felt. Six-month-old infants make that mistake too, the researchers now report, just as adults do. But four-month-old infants get it right more often. In other words, infants actually outperform older infants and adults in correctly placing where they’ve been touched when their feet are crossed.

“We think [this means] that before around six months of age, human babies perceive touches just on their bodies, and not in the external world,” Bremner says. “If one tries to imagine what this must be like–it’s a bit of a dizzying idea.”

The researchers made the discovery by tickling the crossed and uncrossed feet of four- and six-month-old infants with mechanically delivered vibrations. The younger infants moved the foot that was tickled 70% of the time either way. In contrast, six-month-olds correctly identified the source of the tickle only 50% of the time with their feet crossed–no better than chance.
