Back in 2016, a team of German scientists discovered that the Venus flytrap can actually "count" the number of times something touches its hair-lined leaves—an ability that helps the plant distinguish between the presence of prey and a small nut or stone, or even a dead insect.
While the existence of adverse event reports alone don’t prove a product is the cause, the nature and pattern of complaints about Prevagen worried FDA officials, according to agency records.
Senator Josh Hawley, who wants to strip Section 230 protections from platforms if they moderate misinformation in political speech, cited Thomas’ memo and asked Barrett her views about it.Pai gave us a hint of his thinking: “Social media companies have a First Amendment right to free speech,” he wrote.
Black Box opens with handsome, skittish widower Nolan (Mamoudou Athie) dealing with memory loss six months after a car crash kills his wife and leaves him with a severe brain injury.Early on, Black Box suffers from showing its “monster” too frequently and not making it horrifying at all.
Written by marine biologist Kareen Schnabel, the 350-page treatise presents everything we currently know about the different kinds of squat lobster living in New Zealand’s waters.Kareen’s memoir gives detailed information about 87 species of squat lobster in the New Zealand region.
To memorize these, Dellis recommends starting by turning each one of those items into an easily-remembered image.This technique of linking images with places is called the memory palace, and it’s particularly useful for remembering the order of certain elements, says Shaw.
DDOSecrets founder Emma Best tells WIRED that the hacked files came from Anonymous—or at least a source self-representing as part of that group, given that under Anonymous' loose, leaderless structure anyone can declare themselves a member."It's the largest published hack of American law enforcement agencies," Emma Best, cofounder of DDOSecrets, wrote in a series of text messages.
But by momentarily undervolting a processor by 25 or 30 percent, and precisely timing that voltage change, an attacker can cause the chip to make errors in the midst of computations that use secret data.
At their most basic level, randomizer mods shuffle the data in a game's ROM so that each run becomes a new and unpredictable experience.
A group of microscopic algae that form vast aquamarine blooms off the east coast is the subject of NIWA’s latest Biodiversity Memoir.Measuring as small as three microns (0.003 mm), powerful scanning electron microscopes are needed to look at the algae in detail.
Fu and her colleague and spouse Louis Ptáček, both at the University of California, San Francisco, had just identified a gene mutation that significantly decreased how many hours someone needs to sleep .
Earlier this year, I lounged around on 25 of the top memory foam and hybrid (individually wrapped springs + foam) mattresses you can order online.You can read all about it in WIRED's Best Mattress You Can Buy in a Box guide.
Though the experiments were conducted in mice, and are just a proof of concept, Ramirez says understanding how these regions of the brain play a role in enhancing positive memories or suppressing negative ones could unlock targets for treating psychiatric disorders like depression, anxiety, and PTSD.Scientists identified neurons in a mouse's hippocampus, shown in green, that were involved in encoding a fear memory.
It can seem odd—or it did to me, at least—to reduce the large sums of money people spend on rent or the shared experience of a first date or vacation with friends to just a few goofy illustrations placed in a public forum.
Facebook’s Memories feature—where it shows you pictures and posts from a day in the recent or far-gone past—used to be my favorite thing about the platform.
So like clockwork, 94 days after Google alerted Apple to a bug in its MacOS operating system that could allow malware to inject data into the most privileged code running on its computers, Mountain View's hackers are revealing that fresh zero-day vulnerability to the world.
Marc Howard , a cognitive neuroscientist now at Boston University, and Karthik Shankar , who was then one of his postdoctoral students, wanted to figure out a mathematical model of time processing: a neurologically computable function for representing the past, like a mental canvas onto which the brain could paint memories and perceptions.
“They’re supposed to be on a mission to destroy viruses, and instead they act as a shuttle, delivering measles straight to the closest lymph nodes.” Once they’re in the lymph nodes, a sort of bustling immune system transit hub, the virus hops to its intended target—a subset of cells responsible for making antibodies to remember past pathogens.
The researchers say such an attack could even be down remotely, without physical access to the target system.Both in terms of the attack and possible defenses, the researchers say there is still a lot that is unknown, because ECC chips, their implementation, and the devices they work in are all generally proprietary.
