Scientists Reveal Stunning Video of a Memory being formed at the Molecular Level

Researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have recently been able to visually capture a memory being formed at the molecular level as it happens. Using advanced imaging techniques, Dr. Robert Singer and his team at the Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology have finally penetrated the elusive layer between the intangible memories and their previously only indirectly observed processes.

The Sustainable Style of Stella McCartney’s Pre-Fall 2014 Collection

Stella McCartney’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection demonstrates that ethical and sustainable fashion doesn’t have to resign to formless, potato-sack dresses. Using gentle organic fabrics and vegetable-oil-based faux-leather, McCartney designs form-fitting, draped and pleated styles with confident choppy patterns that resemble the quality and detail expected from similar big name designers.

New Cellular Anti-Aging Compound to Begin Human Trials Next Year

Although aging is a thing some try to combat the proactive way with a healthy diet and exercise, researchers have found that our biochemistry plays a significant role in muscle deterioration at the cellular level. In a recent study, researchers found that replenishing NAD+ levels could restore the muscle tone of a 60-year-old human to that of a 20-year-old.

Contorted Manhattan Skylines: Brad Sloan Photography

In his photo series captured during a three day trip to New York, Brad Sloan shows us his city-bending, Inception-like photography displaying contorted aerial views of severed Manhattan skylines. Harshened by a monochromatic filter, the photos outline the notion that symmetry can still be born out of structural discontinuity.

A Canvas of Water: Heidi Westum’s Oil-Painted Macro Photography

While macro photographers often focus on the detailed textures of insect and flowers, amateur photographer Heidi Westum deviates from the norm to take us instead on simpler yet more structured macroscopic journey. She arranges water and oil so carefully that each drop’s apparent inertia quickly slips under the guise of motion.

Heat from Underground Train Tunnels will soon Warm London Homes

While we usually consider it to be cold and damp underground, the train tunnels in Europe are a different story. Heat from the train’s engines, brakes and crowds warms the tunnels and continuously escapes through the exits. In November this year the Islington Council announced it will be channeling this lost heat to nearby homes through the Celsius project.

Scientists have Found that Distractions can actually Improve your Memory

Researchers have found that mentally rehearsing information we want to remember isn’t just an act; it actually helps us retain memories by strengthening neural connections. But when working on a project that seems overwhelming, many of us intermittently seek distraction to rest our brains for a bit. Fortunately scientists at University College London have found that these distractions can actually improve our memory, not hinder it.
