Artificial Tongue Able To “Taste” Differences Between Whiskies With 99 Percent Accuracy

Scientists have developed artificial skin, artificial eyes, and are even in the progress of designing an artificial “brain” (of sorts) for the US military. Meanwhile, researchers from the University of Glasgow have been working on an artificial tongue for the simple (and wholesome) purpose of whiskey tasting.  They describe their invention in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s journal Nanoscale. This isn’t the world’s first artificial tongue but it is the first single artificial tongue made with two types of nanoscale metal “tastebuds” – a feature that improves its taste-testing abilities and enables it to provide more information on the samples it tastes, and faster too. “We call this an artificial tongue because it acts similarly to a human tongue – like us, …

Life-Threatening Experiences Lead To Long-Lasting Changes In Animals Brains

Predators can inspire fear that causes long-lasting changes to the brains and behaviors of wild animals, helping them remember and avoid such life-threatening events in the future.  Researchers describe this as an “animal model” of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that suggests the condition may not be a maladaptive dysfunction, but rather a phenomenon that occurs in nature to enhance survival against perceived threats. Retaining a powerful and long-term memory of a life-threatening encounter is “clearly evolutionarily beneficial” if it helps an individual avoid such events in the future, note the researchers. “These results have important implications for biomedical researchers, mental health clinicians, and ecologists,” said study author Liana Zanette in a statement. “Our findings support both the notion that PTSD is not …
