My compatriot Descartes had raised it against himself when asking how an
isolated mind could be absolutely as opposed to relatively sure of anything about
the outside world. Of course, he framed his question in a way that made it
impossible to give the only reasonable answer, which we in science studies have
slowly rediscovered three centuries later: that we are relatively sure of many of
the things with which we are daily engaged through the practice of our
laboratories. By Des- ...

'So the problem I have is to do with the human brain.' I took an indulgent breath;
the air smelled of tulips. 'And the way the brain has managed to produce these
really unlikely things like culture and literature and art. And consciousness.
Things with, pretty palpably, no survival or reproduction value. But which for
some reason evolved anyway. As products of the brain. I'm guessing you know
something about how the human genome makes a human brain.' 'A bit,' she said,
with no ...

First, some organochlorines — particularly those that dissolve in cell membranes
or are metabolized to highly reactive intermediates — can kill brain cells. Unlike
most other tissues, brain cells generally do not regenerate; new neurons are not
produced after an organism passes early childhood, so the Risk Paradigm's
assumption that the body has inherent repair mechanisms that allow it to cope
with a certain amount of damage clearly does not apply to the brain."" While the
brain can ...

They could well be a lot less intelligent than its own motiles, although the similar
size of the brain argued against that; and the grippers indicated a high degree of
tool usage, for which they would need suitable aptitude. Aliens, it acknowledged,
were paradoxical in more ways than one. Given its overwhelming need to
establish direct control over the brain of an alien motile, and the only connection
it had found to that valuable organ, it didn't have a lot of choice. The small alien
motile ...

When they return from Europe, the MRI shows many small inoperable tumors in
her brain. It can be hard to treat brain tumors, because much chemo cannot break
the blood brain barrier. Cheri, age thirty-four, undergoes whole-brain radiation.
The diagnosis ripples outward through my circle of friends. Within less than a
year, Sarah has remarried, to a divorcé, and is stepmother to his four kids, her life
accelerated, perhaps, by the new knowledge that time is limited and precious.

Brain. One of the most successful applications of computer games has been their
use with biofeedback to treat children who are hyperactive or have attention
deficit disorder (ADD). Originally developed by NASA scientists, computer games
have been used to help these children train their brains to concentrate and focus
their attention. Essentially, the brainwaves of the children playing the games are
monitored and linked to the controls of the games so that when they produce the

Pandora considered it, cocking her head. “I'll give this one a maybe.” Athena
nodded, feeling a little let down. She'd thought her inventions were pretty good,
but Pandora's lack of enthusiasm was discouraging. Knock, knock. “Who is it?”
called Pandora. Dropping the sketches on Athena's bed, she crossed the room to
throw open the door. Aphrodite stood just outside in the hall. “Where did you
come from?” asked Pandora, poking her head out to glance up and down the
hallway.

Women,Science and Power in the Enlightenment Patricia Fara. Conway's chronic
pain also imbued her philosophical thought. While More was looking after
Conway in Paris, he read Descartes's book on the passions and discussed it with
her. Descartes's book had stemmed from his correspondence debates with
Elisabeth of Bohemia, and – like Elisabeth – Conway realised from her illness
that she disagreed with Descartes's separation of mind and matter. Conway
proposed what we ...
