It's often believed that it's much harder to remember memories from childhood. This is why memories from being a toddler are almost impossible to remember. However, recent studies show that the right triggers can force these memories back, at least on mice.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that develops in people who have experienced a scary, shocking, or dangerous event. For instance, CJ Hardin, a veteran who spent three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, has been alcoholic and sometimes suicidal. A treatment trial for MDMA -- or ecstasy -- has helped him recover from trauma.
The matter of aging has been an age-old problem, pun not intended. Scientists and medical practitioners have been struggling for centuries how to interpret and understand problems related to health and mortality.
India will be home to the world's largest solar power plant. This means India is set to be the third biggest solar market as early as 2017.
It appears when it comes to fast, light is still the way to go. Modern researchers now point toward the integration of photons -- light particles -- in electronics to boost their performance.
British Airways may soon administer "ingestible sensors" to passengers so it could monitor stomach acidity levels and change their in-flight dining accommodations. This is one of the many ways the British flag carrier plans to improve their overall experience.
A new start-up appears to have made a CO2 incubator designed to help researchers, scientists, and "biohackers" to "cultivate" new body parts from scratch.
Solar cells made of tin can potentially be more adaptable and simpler to produce than the current technology used in solar power cells today. This appears to be proven in a paper that tries to find alternative solutions to lead perovskites.
Mankind is on the verge of another breakthrough in the realm of artificial intelligence. A new AI system can now "predict" how a scene "unfolds" and even create what it thinks is the next course of events of situations -- from an image at least.
Adult coloring books appear to be taking the world by storm. Adults appear to be indulging over geometric patterns, animal designs and gripping landscapes offered by the books.
It appears the age of the application may slowly come to an end. After all, why use a buggy app when you can just boot up a messaging app, type what you need, hit send, and let it do all the work? This may be the future of applications, as companies may slowly opt away from developing apps into working with existing chatbots to serve the needs of customers.
Software development appears to have reached a stage where "self-written" code is becoming better and better than humans. This is considering we have only gone a few decades since the invention of the internet, and it seems even human programmers are starting to be obsolete.
Today may be a big day for scientists working on energy extraction from sewage. A team of biochemists and microbiologists from Ghent University in Belgium, in collaboration with DC Water in Washington DC, is working on a pilot project that can double the extraction of heat, biogas, and electrical energy from bacteria.
It seems Elon Musk is not just all about cars and space colonization. SpaceX's latest mission is what appears to be an ambitious undertaking that aims to enclose the planet with high-speed internet coverage 200 times faster than the one we have today.
Africa is set to launch its first private satellite into space this May 2017, courtesy of the design from two teenage girls from Cape Town, South Africa.Brittany Bull and Sesam Mngqengqiswa, high schoolers from Cape Town, have designed and built payloads for such a satellite that will orbit over the planet's poles and scan Africa's surface.
