Chemicals affect the way we think

Here is another example of how our oral intake affects the way we think. It affects our choices, our motivations, and ultimately what we get out of life.

Now while regular food may not have this big an impact, we have strong evidence that suggest eating healthy and eating the right amounts go a long way to keep a well balanced mind.

The article I am referring to is of course:

“Birth Control Pills Affect Women’s Taste in Men”

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=birth-control-pills-affect-womens-taste 

Excerpt from that article is below:
”Recent research suggests that the contraceptive pill—which prevents women from ovulating by fooling their body into believing it is pregnant—could affect which types of men women desire. Going on or off the pill during a relationship, therefore, may tempt a woman away from her man.”

The Rubber Hand Illusion

This is an amazing insight into how the mind physically reacts to external stimuli. It feels things are real even though they are not. Now combine this with our understanding of the placebo effect, and one can start seeing the power the mind over the body. This has amazing implications in developing therapies, and body controlled devices.

Dark Side of Humanity

In moments of life and death, or moments where people break the mold to unleash some dark personality they harbor we discover what humanity is capable of if left unchecked. The below url captures pictures from such moments and gives us a peek of our nature if we entertain and encourage our dark side.

Careful the pictures are disturbing.
