This image shows slices of a human brain, each slice being thinner than a human hair! The pieces are being prepared for a scanning process that will allow medical scientists to study brain diseases at a microscopic level. See more science facts at www.dailysciencefix.com
Scientists have created the highest resolution 3D digital model yet made of a human brain, showing features as small as 20 micrometres across – thinner than a human hair and almost on the scale of individual cells. At 50 times the resolution of any available anatomical atlas of the brain "BigBrain" will give scientists their closest look yet at the structures that underlie aspects of the organ, http://www.friendinbox.com/blog/24403/3d-brain-to-help-unlock-secrets-of-the-mind/
Many have tried, but few (if any) have succeeded in replicating celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa's genius rotating curling iron ($129). For those who don't know, the concept is simple: clip your hair, choose the direction you want it to go, and watch the wand whirl up to curl your hair. The newest S1 model featured two speeds, a "home" button that will spin the wand back to neutral, and larger "left" and "right" buttons.
