Professional paranormal investigator and feature columnist for Skeptical Inquirer science magazine, Joe Nickell, provided his skeptic's take on the paranormal. Nickell has investigated many so-called ghost sightings and experiences, and often is able to explain the anomalies in scientific terms. "What I'm trying to do with my work with ghosts [or bigfoot]... is to actually go and actually investigate... and provide the simplest and best scientific explanation for it," he said.
Scientists at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University have developed a breakthrough technique that has allowed them to 'film' the brain as it forms new memories. The incredible video shows fluorescent tagged molecules moving in real time as they form memories inside a mouse brain. The researchers think their 'mouse model' could have major implications for understanding of how the brain works. Check out the video here.
