Eating Nuts May Strengthen Some Brain Waves

New research has found that eating nuts on a regular basis strengthens brain wave frequencies associated with cognition, healing, learning, memory, and other key brain functions.Researchers at Loma Linda University in California found that some nuts stimulated some brain frequencies more than others.Pistachios, for instance, produced the greatest gamma wave response, which is critical for enhancing cognitive processing, information retention, learning, perception, and rapid eye movement during sleep.Peanuts, which are actually legumes, but were still part of the study, produced the highest delta response, which is associated with healthy immunity, natural healing, and deep sleep.While researchers found variances between the six nut varieties tested, all of them were high in beneficial antioxidants, with walnuts containing the highest antioxidant concentrations of all, according to the study’s principal investigator, Lee Berk, Dr.P.H., M.P.H., associate dean for research at the LLU Sch…

In Rat Study, Chronic Stress Can Lead to Risky Decisions

Making a decision between two options that have both positive and negative elements, such as deciding between a job with a high salary but long hours, and a lower-paying job that allows for more leisure time, is not always easy.Neuroscientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have now discovered that making decisions in this type of situation, known as a cost-benefit conflict, is dramatically affected by chronic stress.In a study of mice, they found that stressed animals were far likelier to choose high-risk, high-payoff options.The researchers also found that impairments of a specific brain circuit underlie this abnormal decision-making, and they showed that they could restore normal behavior by manipulating this circuit.If a method for tuning this circuit in humans were developed, it could help patients with depression, addiction, and anxiety, which often feature poor decision-making, the scientists claim.“One exciting thing is that by doing this very basic science, we f…

Dog Owners May Be Less Likely to Die of Heart Attack

In a new Swedish study investigating the association between dog ownership and cardiovascular health, researchers found that dog owners have a reduced risk of death due to cardiovascular disease and other causes.The protective link is particularly strong among people who live alone and among those who own dog breeds originally bred for hunting.For the study, the research team from Uppsala University analyzed the data of more than 3.4 million Swedes aged 40 to 80 with no history of cardiovascular disease and compared the information to seven different national data sources, including two dog ownership registries.“A very interesting finding in our study was that dog ownership was especially prominent as a protective factor in persons living alone, which is a group reported previously to be at higher risk of cardiovascular disease and death than those living in a multi-person household,” said Mwenya Mubanga, lead junior author of the study and Ph.D. student at the Department of Medical S…

Attraction to 16 Year Olds

I’m a 25-year-old male attracted to 16-year olds.
I thought this was normal since lots of men are into teen girls. 16 is the age of consent in my state. Recently, people were calling this person online a pedophile for being attracted to 17-year olds despite only being 20.I guess the proper term would be Ephebophilia, only if it’s your main focus though?
I don’t have a preference for 16 year olds (I’m attracted to older men too) and it doesn’t put any strain on my marriage. It’s not an obsession.Is this normal? Is it common? Is it as bad as pedophilia and hebephilia?A. Normal has different meanings in different contexts. In the sciences, normal is a statistical reference meaning plus or minus one standard deviation from the mean. This number is about 68% of any total. Thus we can describe anything as being “normal.” We can have normal shoe sizes, we can have normal weights for men and women of a certain height, we can have normal IQs and normal and abnormal amounts of milk consumed for…

Which Drivers Are More Likely to Be Distracted?

A new study has found that young men, people who drive more often, and extraverted or neurotic people are more likely to be distracted while driving.The study, published in Frontiers in Psychology, also found that older women and those who felt that they could control their distracted behavior were less likely to report distraction.According to estimates from the World Health Organization, more than one million people are killed in road traffic accidents each year. Driver distractions, including answering the phone or fiddling with the radio, are a factor in many accidents.The risk of being involved in an accident increases dramatically after just two seconds of distraction, so understanding and reducing driver distraction will help save lives, researchers say.Predicting and explaining distracted behavior is difficult, as people often don’t intend to reduce their focus on driving, and may feel they have little control over it. Researchers have not previously examined the link between …
