How to improve memory in just 40 days

This mode of strategic training lead to the greatest amount of recall in the Neuron study, which means it, might be your best bet to never forgetting an important date, name, or appointment again. Start practicing

How to improve memory in just 40 daysThe hot panic of realizing you forgot something is trickling and awful. What makes the feeling worse is the sinking thought that, yep, this probably could have been avoided if you had been more mindful or intentional in remembering. Now, new research seems to indicate you can head off that horrible forgetting sensation with sheer […]

Why do liars keep on lying?

Scientists can now tell you how one lie leads to another – it has to do with how the brain reacts to fibs

Why do liars keep on lying?Once a liar, always a liar, the old saying goes. Turns out there’s some scientific truth to that: researchers have tracked down how the brain makes lying easier as the untruths build up, providing some biological evidence for why small lies often balloon into ever larger ones In a study published in Nature Neuroscience, Tali […]

Medical miracle: Man survives 150 km journey with rod lodged in the skull

A rod of iron entered the right bank of the head of the 21-year-old man in Nagpur, Maharashtra. Even after the gruesome incident, the young man’s life survived and he, after being in his senses, travelled from Balaghat to Nagpur in the same condition and was admitted to the hospital

Medical miracle: Man survives 150 km journey with rod lodged in the skullOn the same day, the doctors saved their life by taking the rod out from the young man’s head by doing surgery. The patient named Sanjay Bane, a resident of Balaghat was working on the construction of a well at his home. The stand on which Sanjay was standing broke and collapsed and he fell […]

Mediterranean diet may be good for the brain

It may be that everything in the Mediterranean diet combination gives an overall protective effect

Mediterranean diet may be good for the brainThe Mediterranean diet — high in vegetables, fruits, olive oil and whole grains, and moderate in protein and animal fats — has been shown in many studies to be beneficial in reducing the risk for diabetes, heart disease and stroke. A new study shows it may also be good for the brain. Researchers measured brain […]

Laughter really is the best medicine

We all laugh. Some may laugh more than others, but it is a unanimous human trait. It feels good and brings people together. Really, laughter needs no introduction, but what is it for?

Laughter really is the best medicineWe laugh at jokes (albeit not all jokes). We can also laugh sarcastically, nervously, when we are stressed, or even for no reason at all. Our laughter may be uncontrollable or maniacal, and it might also be forced, faked, or purposefully prolonged. The laugh is so pervasive that it can hardly be ignored by scientists; […]

People under 40 with type 2 diabetes at risk of developing heart disease

People under age 40 who are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes are more likely to have or die from cardiovascular disease than those of similar age without diabetes and the excess risks were more pronounced in younger women, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation

People under 40 with type 2 diabetes at risk of developing heart diseaseResearchers also found the excess risk for death, regardless of cause, for people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at age 80 or older significantly decreased and was the same as those of similar age without diabetes. “Our study shows the differences in excess diabetes risk are tied to the how old the person is when […]

World Bipolar Day: Bipolar disorder speeds up biological ageing, says study

 Various genetic and environmental factors can influence the rate of biological ageing, meaning that two people of the same chronological age might be different ages biologically

World Bipolar Day: Bipolar disorder speeds up biological ageing, says studyA recently published study demonstrates a link between telomere length, which is a mark of biological ageing, and bipolar risk. The research helps to explain why bipolar disorder often comes hand-in-hand with other age-related diseases. Individuals with bipolar disorder, which is sometimes referred to as manic depression, experience shifts in mood from feeling extremely energised […]

What’s bad for the heart is also bad for the brain, reveals study

People who have risk factors for heart disease like diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity may also be more likely to develop structural changes in the brain that can lead to dementia, a recent study suggests

What’s bad for the heart is also bad for the brain, reveals studyResearchers examined data on 9,772 adults, ages 44 to 79, who all had at least one MRI brain scan and provided general health information and medical records for the analysis. The researchers looked for associations between brain structure and so-called vascular risk factors. They found that except for high cholesterol, all of the other vascular […]

Eating nuts regularly helps slow down cognitive decline

Cognitive decline is an inevitable mental condition that comes with ageing. It is also one of the hallmarks of an incurable disease called dementia. In the absence of a cure, a recent study revealed that consuming nuts preserves the brain’s cognitive functions

Eating nuts regularly helps slow down cognitive declineAs per Science Direct, diet was suggested to have a role in significantly preserving the brain’s cognitive functions as a person ages. The study ruled that the consumption of food items that are rich in n-3 (polyunsaturated) fatty acids with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents is a promising dietary approach that preserves the brain’s cognitive functions.
