How To: Improve your Memory

Nearly everyone wants a better memory. To just be able to remember the last item on a shopping list, or where they put their car keys. But most importantly, remember all the information for exams. This video has tips and tricks to improving your memory in all kinds of ways.

Can you tell the time?

You might think that telling the time is a easy thing. The hour hand and the minute hand. Simple right? Well, its more complicated than that really. Time is not fixed at a constant rate, depending on where you are in space, time passes at different rates. But also your brain likes to warp time. But how does this benefit you?

Yawns are seemingly contagious - so how long can you last without yawning, using this interactive Yawn-O-Meter video?

Scientists have identified 180 species of bioluminescent fish and, because they know there are more and can’t swim to the bottom of the ocean to find them, they have built the EXOSUIT, an aluminium alloy diving suit capable of taking a human 304 metres underwater at surface pressure. The EXOSUIT has an oxygen system with 50 hours of life support and LED lights for full visibility. Read more: http://bit.ly/1eABe20 via Gizmodo

Known as ‘frozen smoke’, aerogel is made by extracting the liquid component of alumina, chromia, tin oxide, or carbon gels through supercritical drying. Around 99.8% of aerogel is just empty space, but this incredible material can singlehandedly shield you from a flamethrower attack.

Using advanced imaging techniques, researchers recorded the first video of chemical reactions morphing into memories. The scientists used green fluorescent tags on RNA molecules in a mouse brain and stimulated to neurons to see how they formed memories in real time.Read more about the study and watch the video:http://bit.ly/1mYPMsn via Albert Einstein College of MedicineImage: Zeiss Microscopy
