Welcome to STEMology – Show Notes
Season 1, Episode 35
Subconsciously numerate eye holes, magnetic space rubbish truck, killing to learn & panda
In today’s episode of STEMology…
David & Sophie had a discussion on how the pupils subconsciously counts for you, scientists found a way to cleans space junks using magnets, how first-person shooter games make you a better learner and panda is a great camouflage in its natural habitat
So it turns out that pupils can think and we don’t even know it.
Basically what’s novel in this paper and in this work is that they’ve worked out a way to move things that are not usually strongly affected by magnetic fields with magnetic fields.
So what they’re saying is if you play action packed video games, you’re then primed to learn on these other kinds of tasks, which have nothing to do with playing video games.
This is the first time that the camouflage capabilities of the giant Panda has actually been tested in a series of advanced image analysis techniques, using rare photos of pandas in their natural habitat.
This is a “kind of, sort of, vaguely close” copy of the words that David & Sophie speak in this episode.
