Labeled diagram of neuron cells

We execute numerous numbers of functions every day. Some are voluntary like reading, exercising, writing or learning and involuntary like breathing, digesting or maintaining homeostasis or in other words maintaining the normal balance of the body.
            Long story short: we need our brains to breathe, eat, study, exercise and even dream! Our brains are comprised of trillion cells. The two types of brain cells-neurons and glial cells- are crucial for brain functioning. Neurons basically transmit the electrical signals throughout the body. The glial cells just provide insulation to these neurons to prevent damage to these precious brain cells which basically guide us to do everything we do every day. That is why glial cells are extremely important. But, still how does the body determine what cells become neurons and what becomes glial cells? Probably, this question motivated the scientists at SISSA to research about these brain cells and their origins. 

Newfound tiny planet may be a glimpse of Earth's ultimate fate

In 1995, a cosmic question was answered when a ground-based telescope picked up on a faint, wobbly signal coming from hundreds of light-years away. The telescope had detected the first exoplanet orbiting a sun-like star, a breakthrough discovery proving that, yes, there are planets beyond our solar system—and hinting at the potential for many more.

The biggest Saudi oil field is fading faster than anyone guessed

It was a state secret and the source of a kingdom’s riches. It was so important that U.S. military planners once debated how to seize it by force. For oil traders, it was a source of endless speculation.
Now the market finally knows: Ghawar in Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest conventional oil field, can produce a lot less than almost anyone believed.

This Is How You Can Get a Bigger Hotel Room for Free

If you’re traveling on a budget, that doesn’t mean you can’t vacation in style. In fact, you can score a lot of free travel perks—like getting a bigger hotel room—without having to shell out the extra cash. All you need to do is call your hotel directly to book your reservation and politely ask, 'May I please book a corner room?' It’s that simple—and it’s just one of several ways to get a free hotel room upgrade.

Hints of mysterious religion discovered in world’s highest lake

About 1,200 years ago, a reef in the middle of Lake Titicaca in what is now Bolivia became the repository of a people’s most valued possessions. In 2013, a sparkling cache of those objects was unearthed by underwater archaeologists. Six years later, researchers think they now know what the objects represent—evidence of a religion that helped the Tiwanaku state become a dominant force in the region.
Results of the excavation were revealed in a paper published today in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Gold objects, metal ornaments, semiprecious stones, and incense burners recovered at the site suggest the reef—located near the Island of the Sun, home to multiple Tiwanaku sacred sites—was once used as a ritual site for the ancient state.

world's most isolated settlement, which sits at the foot of an active volcano in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean

  • The settlement called Edinburgh of the Seven Seas sits on the island of Tristan da Cunha and has been dubbed the remotest settlement in the world. It's one of the British Overseas Territories.
  • Only accessible by boat - many of which depart from the nearest city of Cape Town, South Africa - the journey to Tristan takes nearly one week to complete.
  • Islanders describe their home as peaceful and safe. Less than 300 islanders and visitors live there.
  • Tristan is actually an active volcanic island in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean. The last time it erupted was in 1961, which forced islanders to evacuate to England.
  • Often just called "the Settlement," its economy relies on the export of crawfish, known as "Tristan Rock Lobster" and collectable stamps.
  • Tourism is a small part of the economy, but you need permission to visit, and since there are no hotels on the island, the government has a homestay program in place for visitors as well as several guesthouses.
  • Visitors may catch a glimpse at rare wildlife and plant species that call the island home.
