Grassy meat, smelling older, mental spirituality, statistical babytalk
In today’s episode of STEMology…
Cutting out the middle cow and turning grass directly into meat, a study that discovered that your ability to smell decreases as you get older, specific brain circuits have been connected to your level of spirituality and Kids are awesome at learning language because parents are awesome at teaching it.
Part of the challenge in this kind of work was finding a suitable scaffold, right? Cause you need something that the cells can sort of readily attach to and then they need to be able to proliferate and align in a way that precisely mimics fibers of natural tissues, because obviously if we’re growing meat, we need it to grow as meat would.
This is some work showing that people seem to lose the sense of smell to smell things which are kind of, Umami like fried meat and onion and mushrooms and things. But there’s absolutely no difference when you get older and smells like Curry, vanilla, cinnamon, bacon coffee, and orange, which are non Umami smells.
This specific circuit included positive nodes and negative nodes, and it’s basically. The brain lesions affecting either the negative nodes or the positive nodes were the ones that would lead…. So negative was increased self-reported spiritual belief. And if the brain lesion affected the positive node, that was when they had decreased self-reported spiritual beliefs.
So, the big findings seem to be that when the adults played the hard game, which was using the hard animals, the adults would use way more descriptors
