From the existence of the self to the nature of free will, many philosophers have dedicated their lives to the problems of the mind.But now some neuroscientists claim to have settled these raging debates. Is it possible we have discovered a science to replace philosophy
Where is the brave new world the Human Genome Project promised? Hilary and Steven Rose take on the bioscience industry.“A strong exposé of the hype surrounding genetics and neuroscience” Guardian Steven Peter Russel
Some neuroscientists claim to be able to predict actions up to seven seconds before we decide to make them. Does this mean human freedom and will are illusory? Should we accept that all our actions are determined in advance, or has neuroscience overstepped its
Aluminum's role in causing neurotoxicity and contributing to a number of degenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, has been widely discussed and is supported by a number of studies, though the exact mechanism remains inconclusive.
Oxford University researchers have identified an area of the human brain that appears unlike anything in the brains of some of our closest relatives.
The brain area pinpointed is known to be intimately involved in some of the most advanced planning and
A team of neuroscientists from MIT has found that the human brain can process entire images that the eye sees for as little as 13 milliseconds — the first evidence of such rapid processing speed.
That speed is far faster than the 100 milliseconds suggested by
The following documentary presents new developments in neuroscience and a solution to the many current unsolved problems in physics. While it keeps clear of metaphysical correlations and is solely focused on scientifically verifiable data it also has philosophical
