Shaul Yahil and Shaw Bronner, two researchers from Yale laboratory made a simple conversation which they used to track brain activities using lasers and magnetism. The two were demonstrating a technique to investigate how human brains work.
Washington Times reports that while their brains are discussing, colored and craggy images appear on the monitor that represents their thoughts. Internal brain activities are being tracked by this technology which apparently answers few questions about how the brain works.
Back in 2013, President Barack Obama was triggered to start the BRAIN initiative, whose purpose was to open the way for creating advanced devices that can inspect the brain. Research in brain are also endeavoured by Japan and Europe.
Many and deep are the mystery of this unit. But scientists are now finding indications of what is going on inside this organ with the advancement of research in this field.
An approach was introduced by Yahil and Bronner at the Yale lab that they are currently utilizing for this study.
64 thin black fiber optic cables were attached to the cap, which they put on as they had the conversation. Powerless laser are at the tip of the 32 cables which lights permeate into their brains for approximately one inch. The other half of those cables catch the reflections, which shows oxygen levels in the blood, being cast by the laser beams.
fMRI or functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging is another technique that is mostly operated in brain-mapping. Oxygen levels in blood is also being examined from a deeper penetration with the aid of robust magnetic fields.
These are but two of the many brain-mapping techniques that are much useful in the field of neuroscience.
Campbell Soup has announced it will sell its Danish baked snacks manufacturer Kelsen Group to CTH Invest, a Belgian holding company affiliated with the Nutella maker Ferrero, for $300 million. The transaction is subject to customary purchase price adjustments, and it is expected to be completed in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.
The newly appointed editor-in-chief of Esquire Magazine, Michael Sebastian, recently told the press that he wants to get away from the idea that the magazine's reader is "a middle-aged white guy who likes brown liquor and brown leather"). Which should send chills down the ad dept's spine working on those Scotch and bourbon accounts!
Adding a squeeze of fresh lime and a dash of salt to a lager or pilsner has long been Mexican tradition, and in the 1980s, this practice evolved into the refreshing beer cocktail known as a michelada. The popularity of the drink grew across Mexico and, thanks to the influx of immigrants, it translated well to restaurants and bars across the U.S.
Rosé wine is made in almost every region in the world, from many different grape varieties. And rose-colored wine is produced in a sweet, dry, sparkling, and even fortified style. Yet the classic style of dry rosé wine from Provence sets the trend that many other wine-producing regions around the world want to emulate.
Dominique Ansel moved from Paris to New York City to work at Daniel Boulud's French flagship Daniel as the executive pastry chef, a position he held for 6 years. Fast forward 15 years later, and Ansel has become a household name after the invention of a certain croissant-donut hybrid, and his namesake bakery has expanded beyond SoHo to include branches around the world.
As if you ever really need an excuse to order a piña colada, today is National Piña Colada Day, so go ahead and order that creamy, sweet, cocktail-meets-dessert libation that is best served on a sunny, tropical beach somewhere exotic.
