This is the first video of a couple having sex in an MRI scanner (see video). Just released, it was made from a series of images captured during an experiment some years ago. The study aimed to prove that it was possible to image male and female genitals during sex and to help better understand human anatomy.
As should be obvious, the video is sexually explicit.
It turns out that the bonds between a mother and her child are not merely psychological or even genetic: During pregnancy, the mother and the fetus literally exchange cells, leaving identifiable bits and pieces of the child inside the mother – and vice versa – for decades after birth.
If you electrically shock a person’s brain, their math skills can greatly improve for up to 6 months. It’s barely enough to light a light bulb, but passing a very mild current of electricity through the brain can turn on a metaphorical light bulb in a person’s brain.
Researchers in Spain have found that many of the individuals claiming to see the aura of people –traditionally called “healers” or “quacks”– actually present the neuropsychological phenomenon known as “synesthesia” (specifically, “emotional synesthesia”).
It may be great for curing a splitting headache, but scientists have now discovered that aspirin also activates an enzyme that burns fat, a finding that could unlock its cancer fighting properties, according to a new study.
If you cut off all the skin between your index finger and your middle finger, and then kept the two fingers in constant contact with each other during the healing process, the skin would heal the two fingers together and thus creating one superfinger.
Researchers carried out psychiatric assessments of almost 2,500 children aged between 11 and 16 in Dublin. They discovered that 21%-23% of younger adolescents, aged 11 to 13, had experienced auditory hallucinations.
Professor Jennifer Wiley of the University of Illinois at Chicago discovered that alcohol may enhance creativity problem solving by reducing the mind’s working memory capacity, which is the ability to concentrate on something in particular.
Not only is a firm handshake a sign of confidence, but doctors say it may be a barometer of your health, too. Researchers followed nearly 2,500 men and women for more than a decade, according to new research presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 64th Annual Meeting, and linked the risk of dementia and stroke to how strong their handshakes were at the beginning of the study.
