Autism Starts In The Womb According To New Study! Science Trumps Anti-Vaccine Promoters!

Filed under: HealthMental HealthScience!

A new study has found that autism likely starts in the womb during brain development!

Wow, this is pretty big. New research has shown that autism could begin in the womb.

Scientists have new evidence that suggests autism begins in early pregnancy, when development of the brain's cortex is disrupted.

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the Allen Institute for Brain Science analyzed the genes in brain tissues of deceased children, which helped saved the lives of others.

A professor of neurosciences and director of the Autism Center of Excellence at UC San Diego said:

Holy Carl Fredricksen! Scientists Trying To Get Dogs To Talk To Humans! No, We're NOT Barking Mad!

Filed under: Tech TalkDogGIFs

"Bark bark bark-bark!" = "We think this is a great idea!" as translated from dog thoughts.

Scientists in Scandinavia are working on technology that would use a headset to allow dogs to communicate their thoughts!

So get ready to hear a lot of banter about squirrels, going for walks, and, you guessed it, more squirrels!

The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery is currently working on No More Woof, a technology that aspires to differentiate various doggy thoughts and then vocalize them in short sentences through a microphone.

Now, whenever you ask your furry roommate, "who let the dogs out?" you may receive this reply from your dog: "Dog let himself out. Dog is smarter than human thinks. Dog watches you sleep."

You know, typical dog thoughts!

The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery (maybe they could invent or discover a smaller name?) had this to say on their website:

They've bided their time and gotten their facts straight and provided links and sources to back up everything they say.

Though, we're honestly just left feeling like it's propaganda versus propaganda.

What's awful is

Science Proves You Can't Tickle Yourself, Even After Swapping Bodies With Someone Else!

Science has proven yet again that we can't tickle ourselves no matter how hard we try!

You know how it's not possible to tickle yourself?

Well, some freaky (or bored) scientists actually decided to do something about it!

They set up a test based on the theory that we can't tickle ourselves because the brain negates any sensation caused by its own movements.

Dr. George Van Doorn and several colleagues created a body-swap illusion by setting up 23 test subjects and measured their potential for self-tickling.

According to the BPS Research Digest, the experiment was set up like so:
