New research indicates we transition between 19 different brain phases when sleeping

A new study outlines at least 19 different whole brain activity patterns that occur while we ...

A rigorous new study has examined the large-scale brain activity of a number of human subjects while sleeping, presenting one of the most detailed investigations into sleep phases conducted to date. The study suggests that instead of the traditional four sleep stages we generally understand the brain moves through, there are in fact at least 19 different identifiable brain patterns transitioned through while sleeping.

Abandoning WSBK's 1,000cc engine displacement limit to go chasing Ducati's Panigale for no-holds-barred road superiority, Aprilia has beefed the RSV4 Factory up to 1100cc, 217 horsepower and a top speed around 305 km/h (190 mph).

WHO calls for global gene editing research registry as debate over moratorium rages

Some scientists suggest a moratorium on gene editing is an unnecessary distraction from the regulatory conversation ...

Following on from a recent call for a global moratorium on human germline gene editing, several scientists have pushed back against the idea, suggesting blanket prohibition is both redundant and problematic. The World Health Organization's advisory panel on the topic also sidestepped the issue of a moratorium, instead recommending a central registry on human genome editing research be created.
