Leg exercise has impact on brain and nervous system health. 

Don’t skip leg day! “‘Our study supports the notion that people who are unable to do load-bearing exercises—such as patients who are bed-ridden, or even astronauts on extended travel—not only lose muscle mass, but their body chemistry is altered at the cellular level and even their nervous system is adversely impacted,’ says Dr. Raffaella Adami from the Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy.” learn more

The brain-machine interface now exists. 

You may recall Elon Musk’s new venture to create a BMI that’s directly connected to your brain. The team at CNTRL-Labs thinks that’s a bit more than the market will bare, so instead they’ve figured out how to read your brain signals with an armband. This is fascinating stuff! learn more

Neural structures exist in 11 abstract dimensions. 

“The goal of the Blue Brain Project, which is based in Switzerland, is to digitally create a ‘biologically detailed’ simulation of the human brain. By creating digital brains with an ‘unprecedented’ level of biological information, the scientists aim to advance our understanding of the incredibly intricate human brain, which has about 86 billion neurons.” learn more
