Mental processing speed has gene link

A recent study has found that the gene CADM2 affects people’s ability to process information in later age. In other words some people are naturally born to be quick thinkers. This idea potentially has implications on learning and why some people are slower at the task. 

In my opinion both nature and nurture are mechanisms necessary for survival and evolution and that what we start with (the nature) is important but it is not as important as what we try to do with it (nurture). 

Advances in neuroscience and imaging

Here is a great short video on how we have mapped the structure brain with the latest scanning technology.

As part of the a project called the Human Connector Project 1,200 Americans have been scanned in order to analyse differences between behaviour and the brain’s structures.

Highly interested to see how language and the mind can finally be mapped for a better understanding with this advance.

C4N Y0U R3AD 7H15?

I came across this via an old schoolmate.

I have no idea where it comes from. If anyone knows please let me know.
