Discovery that trees give off ELECTRICITY creates a buzz . Further evidence for the ‘body’ electric

Researchers Find Electricity Generated by Tree Recently it was unveiled that maple trees can be used to produce electricity to power small gadgets. A report published in the journal IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology says that maple trees produce a rather small but still measurable quantity of electricity. Those of you who have heard about potato batteryprobably are aware that the plant material […]

The Body’s Electric Energy Fields

Very interesting article in New Scientist this week: http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg21328553.100-exotic-electrical-effect-pops-up-in-soft-mammalian-tissue.html Exotic electrical effect pops up in soft mammalian tissue 07 March 2012 by Maggie McKee issue 2855.    Prized for its potential to enhance computer memory, ferroelectricity could soon be the basis for drugs that switch off cholesterol and bio-RAM for implants AN ELECTRICAL phenomenon called ferroelectricity, used in […]

Prune bad brain wiring with magnetic pulses

8 February 2012 by Wendy Zukerman Interesting effect of pulsed magnetic fields – a new era in medicine? ZAPPING the brain with a weak magnetic pulse can wipe out unwanted neural connections in mice at least. The discovery could be turned into a treatment for conditions associated with abnormal neural circuitry, such asschizophrenia. In transcranial magnetic stimulation a magnetic coil […]

The Heart Has Its Own “Brain” and Consciousness

http://www.mindfulmuscleblog.com/heart-has-consciousness/ Heart Fields Many believe that conscious awareness originates in the brain alone. Recent scientific research suggests that consciousness actually emerges from the brain and body acting together. A growing body of evidence suggests that the heart plays a particularly significant role in this process. Far more than a simple pump, as was once believed, […]

Quantum dots control brain cells for the first time

http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn21475-quantum-dots-control-brain-cells-for-the-first-time.html In an unlikely marriage of quantum physics and neuroscience, tiny particles called quantum dots have been used to control brain cells for the first time. Having such control over the brain could one day provide a non-invasive treatment for conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, depression and epilepsy. In the nearer term, quantum dots could […]

New Theory of Life Claims to Unite Fields of Science

Interesting story that’s been published in a few magazines now – a united theory of everything? Source: Case Western Reserve press release http://astrobio.net/pressrelease/4522/new-theory-of-life-claims-to-unite-fields-of-science The Earth is alive, asserts a new scientific theory of life emerging from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. The trans-disciplinary theory demonstrates that purportedly inanimate, non-living objects — for example,planets, water, proteins, and DNA […]
