Welcome to STEMology – Show Notes
Season 1, Episode 15
Citizen juries, Maths and the brain, Kirigami drug delivery and a Blue-eyed ancestor
In today’s episode of STEMology…
How Citizen Juries are being formed to help make the big decisions, a study that discovered that maths is key to brain plasticity, using kirigami – a form of origami – to deliver drugs in the body, and how all blue-eyed people can be traced back to a single ancestor.
how groups of non-specialists, properly guided, can provide intelligent, reasoned and insightful responses to complex issues
Interesting thing that they found was that students who didn’t study maths had lower amounts of a crucial chemical for brain plasticity
they say… a stretchable, snakeskin inspired kirigami shell integrated with a fluidic lead driven, linear soft actuator, which I just like saying that.
That’s just some top drawer technobabble
Every single person in the world with blue eyes is a descendant of one person in the past who had a mutant gene where they couldn’t produce enough melanin in their eyes
