Encyclopedia

Discovery is the act of detecting something new, or something “old” that had been unrecognized as meaningful. With reference to sciences and academic disciplines, discovery is the observation of new phenomena, new actions, or new events and providing new reasoning to explain the knowledge gathered through such observations with previously acquired knowledge from abstract thought and everyday experiences. A discovery may sometimes be based on earlier discoveries, collaborations, or ideas. Some discoveries represent a radical breakthrough in knowledge or technology. — Wikipedia

  • Physicists finally explain why your earphones are...
    on August 14, 2018 at 11:00 am

    [Note from the authors of “Seriously, Science?”: After nine years with Discover, we’ve been informed that this will be our last month blogging on this platform. Despite being (usually) objective scientists, we have a sentimental streak, and we have spent the last few days reminiscing about the crazy, and often funny, science we have highlighted. Therefore, we have assembled a month-long feast of our favorite science papers. Enjoy!] There are few day-to-day […]

  • What caused this colossal heart-shaped hole in...
    on August 14, 2018 at 12:14 am

    I'm always on the look out for interesting images of Earth shot from space so that I can share them here at ImaGeo. And when I saw the one above, I just couldn't resist it. Often, the cloud deck extends along the coast of California and down into Baja in a more or less continuous manner, as you can see in the image at right acquired by NASA's Terra satellite five years ago in August. But in the Terra image above, there is indeed a massive heart-shaped hole in the deck. It's […]

  • Brains Store Temporary Records Before Creating...
    on August 13, 2018 at 10:41 pm

    A version of this article originally appeared on The Conversation. The first dance at my wedding lasted exactly four minutes and 52 seconds, but I’ll probably remember it for decades. Neuroscientists still don’t entirely understand this: How was my brain able to translate this less-than-five-minute experience into a lifelong memory? Part of the puzzle is that there’s a gap between experience and memory: our experiences are fleeting, but it takes hours to form a long-term […]

  • A Brief Guide to Neuro-Products
    on August 13, 2018 at 9:41 pm

    On this blog I usually focus on academic, scientific neuroscience. However, there is a big world outside the laboratory and, in the real world, the concepts of neuroscience are being used (and abused) in ways that would make any honest neuroscientist blush. In this post I'm going to focus on three recent examples of neuro-products: commercial products that are promoted as having some kind of neuroscience-based benefit. 1) Neuro Connect Golf Bands We'll start out with a silly one. T […]

  • Closing In On Vaping's Most Toxic Ingredient
    on August 13, 2018 at 9:30 pm

    How many breathless older smokers rue the day they first inhaled nicotine and tar? Someday, adolescents sucking tobacco-free Mods and Juuls could face similar regret. Initially hailed as a smoking cessation breakthrough, e-cigarettes have now been raising red-flags for years. Thanks to nicotine, vaping can be just as addictive as true cigarettes. And even if youthful vapers never drag on a Camel, preliminary evidence suggests they may still get chronic bronchitis - or even suffer a […]
