Lamp and Vamp is a turn-based strategy game where you play a vampire who is just trying to get to his coffin. Hunters and clergymen stand in your way, but they are no match for your fangs, as long as they don’t see you first.
Meditation has been proven to have a number of benefits for students: It can boost focus, attention and memory, lower stress levels and improve sleep quality, and some studies have even found mindfulness training to improve test scores. An increasing number of schools, both private and public, from elementary to high school, are beginning to integrate mindfulness into their curriculums.
We’re living in the future, when scientists can create mouse brains with human brain cells and measure the impact on learning. Earlier this year, a paper was published in Cell describing experiments where scientists implanted human glial progenitor cells into the brains of newborn mice. Glial cells are cells as numerous as neurons in the brain that support and nourish neurons. Until recently it was thought that they played exclusively a supporting role in the brain, but we now know that they can also impact neurotransmission. The mice who had human glial cells implanted in the neonatal stage grew chimera brains: on reaching adulthood, the human glial cells had spread to large parts of the mouse brain, retaining their human form and integrating themselves into the mouse neural network similar to human glial cells in a human brain or mouse glial cells in a normal mouse. The partially human mice learned significantly faster than control mice and mice implanted with mouse glial cells on all behavioral tests, and the same could be seen on measures of long-term potentiation (LTP)—a molecular process of strengthening the connections between neurons that is known to underlie some forms of memory and learning.
After choosing one of the several catchy songs, you must dodge for your life against the ultimate challenger: sounds! You are a dot among musically inclined spikes that can switch directions, rotate, and change colors. Avoid the spikes to open up new levels and even more dangerously trippy tunes.
