First observation of Brownian instantaneous velocity

A hundred years after Albert Einstein said we would never be able to observe the instantaneous velocity of tiny particles undergoing Brownian motion, a group of Texan physicists led by Mark Raizen has done so. “This is the first observation of the instantaneous velocity of a Brownian particle,” says Raizen, a professor of physics at […]

Magnetic field can alter moral judgments




Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) neuroscientists have shown they can influence people’s moral judgments by disrupting the right temporo-parietal junction (TPJ) of the brain. A finding, they say, that helps reveal how the brain constructs morality. To make moral judgments about other people, we often need to infer their intentions – an ability known as […]
