 Woman Leaves Dentist’s Office with Foreign Accent
Woman Leaves Dentist’s Office with Foreign Accent
When Karen Butler went in for dental surgery, she left with more than numb gums: She also picked up a thick foreign accent. It wasn't a fluke, or a joke — she'd developed a rare condition called foreign accent syndrome that's usually caused by an injury to the part of the brain that controls speech. picked by suebe 6 months ago

 Could Conjoined Twins Share a Mind?
Could Conjoined Twins Share a Mind?
Four-year-old Krista and Tatiana Hogan are joined at the heads, known as craniopagus. The way the girls’ brains formed beneath the surface of their fused skulls, however, makes them beyond rare: their neural anatomy is unique, at least in the annals of recorded scientific literature. Their brain images reveal what looks like an attenuated line stretching between the two organs. picked by suebe 6 months ago

Itchy-rump syndrome? No, these elephants are playing, and science has no idea why. picked by plurk 6 months ago
