Scientists believe it may be possible in the future for human brains to survive death in robotic bodies.

Submitted by oriol at 2013-09-07 19:16:11 UTC

In their panel at the Global Future 2045 conference, three renowned scientists discussed a future that sounds like a combination of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the recent mouse inception, and Krang, the brain-in-a-box villain of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The talk, which took place in a mixture of Russian and English, focused on making it possible in our lifetime to conduct brain transplants, harvesting human parts from the body for cybernetic integration, and making self-aware brains comfortable in their new robot homes. more

Hot spots: Global temperature rise

Submitted by aragorn at 2013-10-11 14:02:33 UTC

On average, global temperatures will exceed historical norms as soon as 2047 and no later than 2069, according to new research by scientists at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. In some places, it will happen a lot sooner: 2020 in Manokwari, Indonesia, and 2023 in Kingston, Jamaica, the researchers predict. For Washington, it will be 2047. If concerted steps are taken to rapidly mitigate carbon dioxide emissions, the warmup will be slowed by decades. more

5 Reasons the English Language Makes No Freaking Sense

Submitted by par at 2013-11-28 23:32:39 UTC

As much as we might judge people for their bad spelling, the truth is that English spelling doesn't make any goddamn sense. Just look at that sentence: Why is there an "n" but no "n" sound in "goddamn"? It turns out there's one perfectly good reason for that and many other eccentricities of the language, and that one good reason is actually a bunch of stupid reasons that are all shitty and terrible.

Why does the human brain create false memories?

Submitted by nitdia at 2013-09-30 23:07:54 UTC

Neuroscientists say that many of our daily memories are falsely reconstructed because our view of the world is constantly changing. A famous experiment carried out by Elizabeth Loftus in 1994 revealed that she was able to convince a quarter of her participants they were once lost in a shopping centre as a child. Another similar experiment in 2002 found that half of the participants were tricked into believing they had taken a hot air balloon ride as a child, simply by showing them doctored photographic "evidence". more
