Do you honestly think that if the brain was capable and okay to store every single detail of every day that it would? The problem is storage space, access times, write times, fragmentation, power consumption, etc. This isn't news, guys.
> We found a fluorescent protein - who gives a crap about it's use in assessing liver function (other than liver problem patients), it's much more useful as for visualization anaerobic tumors from cancer. This can help the advancement of drugs like Dichloroacetate which treat cancer by fighting those anaerobic cells (whose mitochondria are off and apoptosis can't occur).

What about the fact that MIT was able to block compulsiveness in mice with light? Or that the weights of give elements had to be tweaked after new tests were done? Those two are more important than the new eye layer and the patenting genes (because that's ******* common sense - it would be news if the Supreme Court said the CAN be).

The new layer in the eye has already been linked to many diseases since it's discovery, so yeah, it's pretty important.

******* hell, I need that memory booster

Patenting Genes is a scary as balls idea

What so no-one noticed the man-shaped nebula thinking deeply?

I need that memory boost. Smoke inhalation is not nice to brain cells.

god i love these. too bad they dont go more in depth.

memory boosting chemical? gimme

These "this week in science" posts give me hope.

It helps me remember that even though the world has so many bad things in it, things are getting better.

These are getting quite boring.

I kinda have a fear for the future. if they move on to human DNA testing/cloning they will eventually **** the human race. We addapt, you see, and if multiple people are the same DNA, they will get the same sicknesses and weaknesses leading to their exctinction..

HOLY **** THIS GUY HAS THE GENES WE'VE PATENTED LETS SUE HIS ASS

Which each innovation, we move forward a bit more.
THAT'S HOW SCIENCE WORKS!

"Human genes cannot be patented"
That reminds me
Has anyone ever read "Next"?

I need that memory boosting chemical for reasons i forgot.

The one about the fluorescent protein...

We already have Green Florescent Protein (GFP) to test for the function (i.e. on / off) of RNA. I certainly am no scientist, but it seems that that find is somewhat...erhm...meh.
