Source: Wikimedia Commons | Nobu Tamura People have long pondered what consciousness actually is. Consciousness seems very different from other biological functions—like some sort of nonmaterial essence within our heads. Thoughts and feelings seem ethereal, untethered from anything physical. Self-awareness seems like a phenomenon utterly divorced from anything that could possibly be produced by cells comprised of physical particles. People used to think of life itself that way too, and many still do. But biologists solved the enigma of what makes things alive mid-way through the twentieth century, the foundations of that understanding having been built over the preceding century. Before that, living things were believed to possess some sort of animating essence that accounted for their difference from inanimate matter. People could not imagine how the same material particles that comprise inanimate matter could be arranged in such a way as to make something alive , without … [Read more...] about What Actually Is Consciousness, and How Did It Evolve?

Key Points: Hearing that they have "degenerative disc disease" can frighten many people into pursuing spinal surgery. But rather than being pathological, degenerating discs and decreased spinal flexibility are normal parts of aging—and may not be responsible for any pain that the patient is experiencing. Surgery can be helpful for some patients with structural spinal problems. But it comes with risks and positive outcomes aren't guaranteed; thus, it should only be pursued when absolutely necessary. Surgeries being performed for axial neck, thoracic, and low back pain on normally aging spines was a major reason I quit my spinal surgery practice in 2019. Not only was the success rate low, patients were often much worse after the surgeries and few physicians were willing to take care of them. At the same time, I was witnessing hundreds of patients consistently break free from chronic pain using evidence-based treatments and they usually did not require surgery. … [Read more...] about Spine Surgery: Proceed at Your Own Risk
“Music can change the world because it can change people.” — Bono The brain adapts. What isn’t used is lost, and what’s used constantly is bolstered. If a finger or entire limb is removed, the part of the brain responsible for interpreting its sensory information will shrink, being overtaken by regions responsible for intact portions of the body. If tactile stimulation increases—say your fingertips are constantly poked or prodded—the corresponding cortical areas will expand. In 1995, Thomas Elbert—working at the University of Konstanz in Germany—led an experiment that applied this principle of adaptability to the brains of musicians. Given that musicians like violinists require a considerable amount of manual dexterity, and they constantly use their fingers to press down on the strings of their instruments, Elbert wondered if the brain regions associated with those areas would be different. Recruiting nine people that played the violin, the cello, or guitar, the researchers … [Read more...] about Your Brain on Music
