The extraordinary virus
The extraordinary virus
Have a look at this splendid picture, where a virus infests its genetic material to a host cell. They say never before such a clear picture was caught under electron microscope. The final image is a 3D model developed by sophisticated computer program. You may read the full article by clicking the source URL.
The images, which show for the first time a virus poised to inject its genetic material into a host cell, grace the cover of the Feb. 2 issue of Nature.
Fight back cancer with Imagery
Imagery is a simple technique you focus on something (usually the physical o psychological problem) and think that you are counteracting against it, by positive thoughts or a mental imagination of fight with them. You can alternatively look at some beautiful pictures (more importantly, that which is pleasing to you!) for few minutes and mediate that you are physically present there. This relieves mental tension and calms the mind.
The following article is clipped from cnn. The article is about how the Imagery in conjugation with relaxation technique helps kids cope with pain. Don't be disappointed that it doesn't work for adults. It will work if the adults do little bit of real imagination as kids do.
guided imagery -- which can be as simple as visualizing a beautiful beach or as complex as picturing immune cells attacking cancer cells -- has already been used successfully to help people cope with various types of pain. For instance, among a group of 94 adult cancer patients, those who received imagery training reported less pain than those who didn't, according to a study published in the November 1995 issue of the journal Pain. What's more, a study in the October 1996 issue of the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics found that guided imagery lowered postoperative pain in children. The use of guided imagery or relaxation techniques to treat the stubborn symptoms of RAP, however, has never been studied.
Use imagery techniques to remember difficult names
One type of mnemonic - or memory aid - relies on imagery rather than words.
A classic way of remembering a person's name is to try and imagine it (or something associated to it) on the person's face. This is easy if you meet John Bridge: just imagine a bridge on his face. For less obvious examples, you'll have to get more creative. Psychologists have found that the more bizarre and vivid the image the better it works.
