Science, for the win!

Four years ago, a tragic diving accident paralyzed Ian Burkhart, leaving him unable to move his arms or legs. Until this week…

The 23-year-old quadriplegic patient has been working with surgeons at the Ohio State University and researchers at the Battelle Memorial Institute on a new technology called Neurobridge.

Using an implant inserted and connected to Ian’s brain, he’s able to move his arm and hand using his own thoughts for the first time since his accident!

Incredible!

A snake tried to eat a centipede but bit off more than it could chew... the centipede burst out of the snake's stomach before dying!

Researchers in Macedonia came across a pretty crazy sight: a young snake tried to eat a giant centipede and they both ended up dying.

The crazy part is, the snake got the best of the centipede, eating it whole — but we guess the young female nose-horned viper didn't kill its prey! Instead, it ate the centipede alive!

This was no small centipede either! It was huge, weighing more than

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:

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:
