(Neuroscience News) How do we perceive our environment? What is the influence of sensory stimuli on the peripheral nervous system and what on the brain? Science has an interest in this question for many reasons. In the long term, insights from this research could contribute to a better understanding of diseases such as ADHD and Parkinson’s disease.

(Hilde Larson) After years of studying health and how to allow the body to naturally heal, there is one topic that keeps coming back to me as significant, and that is the body-emotion connection. The key role they play in our physical wellbeing, and how much gunk we carry from early childhood. From our upbringing, our traumas, conditioning and belief system. How everything we ever lived is stored in our cells, and how our emotional terrain affects our vital organs.

(Janine Acero) Some people claim they can see apparitions, things that aren’t really there, or just straight up ghosts. If you’re a skeptical person, you may chalk it up to fatigue, drunkenness, or even hallucinations — anything but actual ghosts. But there may be a sliver of truth to those claims after all. In a new paper posted on arXiv, scientists in Scotland at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh and the University of Glasgow have discovered that the human eye can actually detect “ghost images.”
