Ancient Virus Could Have Led To Human Thinking

We all have consciousness, but explaining why and how our thoughts occur has always been a scientific mystery An ancient virus could be responsible for human consciousness, giving you the ability to think for yourself. New research has linked a human gene responsible for conscious thought to a virus that was spread in the early days of humanity. Two papers published … Continue reading

$100 Million Google Health Project; Seeks 10,000 Volunteers For Invasive Screening

It’s a tough call, but maybe not, according to a panel of five experts who debated “de-extinction” during the annual Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York … Continue reading

Human Brain Generates Fructose

Fructose, a form of sugar linked to obesity and diabetes, is converted in the human brain from glucose, according to a new Yale study. The finding raises questions about fructose’s effects on the brain and eating behavior. The study was published on Feb. 23 by JCI Insight. Fructose is a simple sugar found in fruits, vegetables, table sugar, and many … Continue reading

Caveman DNA ‘Inherited by Inuit People Help them Survive the Arctic cold’

INUIT people living in Greenland may have inherited caveman genes that helped an extinct type of human survive the last Ice Age. New evidence suggests the Inuits are protected against the Arctic cold by DNA from Denisovans, a human sub-species that populated Siberia about 40,000 years ago. The discovery is a further indication of interbreeding long ago between the ancestors … Continue reading

One Simple Algorithm Could Explain Human Intelligence

A simple algorithm could explain the inner workings of human intelligence, and it could one day be encoded into artificial intelligence (AI) systems, researchers suggest. It’s a mind-bending idea: that all the complex thoughts running through our heads are the product of a set of definable sums. But scientists have identified clear patterns in the brains of mice and hamsters, … Continue reading
