Scientists digging deep inside the human brain may have found a switch that can literally make you fall asleep. It might take us a step forward in solving the mystery of exactly how our consciousness works and how its awareness arises. In a study published last week, Mohamad Koubeissi and his colleagues at George Washington University described how accidentally they managed to switch the consciousness on and off of a woman (having epilepsy) by electrically stimulating her claustrum.

The researchers at KU Leuven's Institute for Astronomy have developed a new way of determining the age of fledgling stars. This new method not only identifies young stars but also differentiates their evolutionary states. In the study, the researchers have used ultrasound technology similar to that which is used in medicines for seismic analysis of stars. Determining the age of the young stars by measuring acoustic vibrations using ultrasound technology is easy as the knowledge of which...

Computers are excellent at most tasks but there is one such thing at which they are consistently beaten by humans, Pattern Recognition. But it seems our trump card to supremacy may be soon slipping away. Brain Scientists like Charles Cadieu have been pitting computers against monkeys at key image recognition tests for a decade. Up until now, monkeys were doing at least ten times better than a machine, at what Cadieu calls the “neural substrate that makes recognition possible.” This was done by...

Electronic devices contain active electrical components such as vacuum tubes, diodes, transistors and integrated circuits along with passive interconnection technologies. While using devices such as computers, mobiles, etc. the users perform lots of tasks. This leads to massive pressure on diminutive elements that whir and generate heat while performing tasks. Many alternatives such as heat sinks and fans for air cooling are used for dissipating heat. Recently, the research team of University...
