A BIZARRE ‘worm-monster’ which looks just like a human BRAIN has surfaced in a back garden after a huge deluge of rain. Video footage shows the squirming mass of blood-red creatures wriggling outside an apartment block in Houston, Texas. “The second I saw it, it didn't look right,” said the shocked homeowner, who asked not to be named. “I got up close and saw that it was moving and squirming. "I had no idea of what it could be, but I could see the individual worms writhing around.” Online observers are convinced the mass, found in shallow water, is a colony of tubifex worms - also known as blood worms. The man who found the creature said: “I almost decided to kill it. It was a squirming, throbbing, amorphous mound of tangled worms. “Some were getting absorbed into the mass, some were just floating by in the stream. “The unnerving part to me was how many there were. “I just don't understand how you could find such numbers … [Read more...] about Mysterious ‘worm monster’ that looks like a bloody human brain discovered in bloke’s back garden after heavy rain

His mother, Jennifer Reindl, told Fox 10 her son had been dead for 15 minutes after the accident. “All I saw was a stretcher with his feet hanging out. He was dead a total of 15 minutes,” Reindl said. “When he came back, they said he would never be normal again. They told me the oxidation problems would be so bad to his brain, that he would be a vegetable if he even made it.” After days of being brain dead, his parents signed papers to donate his organs to five separate children … [Read more...] about Brain-Dead Boy Wakes Up After Parents Sign Organ Donation Documents

When Paylian was 14, one of his young neighbors died. Her coffin was carried through the street in Tbilisi, Georgia, as per Soviet custom. Since then, he has focused on fighting aging and death.

Baylian developed them as “combinatorial biologics” of other species such as frogs. He said that when injected into humans, bioquantines can restore … [Read more...] about Brain Dead Back To Life?

News / UK and world by Press Association April 26, 2018, 11:34 am FacebookTwitterLinkedInWhatsAppEmail Sign up to our Daily newsletter Scientists have discovered something you may not want to hear: human bones make great daggers. A team led by Dartmouth College in the US found human thigh bones would produce the best blades after using computer simulations and imaging techniques along with stabbing tests. Bone daggers were once used widely in the Sepik region of New Guinea – with common weapons being carved from the leg bones of giant flightless birds called cassowaries. But weapons that “carried greater social prestige” were human femurs, “shaped from the femora of respected men”. The researchers analysed 11 bone daggers – 10 human and one cassowary. In order to preserve the rare human daggers, they used a CT scanner for digital imaging and simulated their stabbing capabilities. The team tested the cassowary dagger by stabbing … [Read more...] about Human thigh bone make excellent daggers – research

It’s not an idle question. In recent years neuroscientists have made major advances in cracking the code of memory, figuring out exactly how the human brain stores information and learning to reverse-engineer the process. Now they’ve reached the stage where they’re starting to put all of that theory into practice. Last month two research teams reported success at using electrical signals, carried into the brain via implanted wires, to boost memory in small groups of test patients. “It’s a major milestone in demonstrating the ability to restore memory function in humans,” says Dr. Robert Hampson, a neuroscientist at Wake Forest School of Medicine and the leader of one of the teams. The research is funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which … [Read more...] about Memory-boosting brain implants are in the works. Would you get one?
