Is Gene Editing on Embryos Going Against Nature or Helping to Prevent Miscarriages?

English

To begin with, the article I chose is named “UK scientists ready to genetically modify human embryos” written by Ian Sample in The Guardian online newspaper. Furthermore, this article explains that some scientists in the UK want to get approval to genetically modify human embryos to enhance the research on miscarriages and to understand it better which will maybe help find the true causes behind it. This could lead to genetically editing embryos in the future to reduce miscarriages.

Possible Breakthrough in Regulating Depressive Behaviours Using SIRT1 Protein

English

Mice were placed in a scenario that caused them to show symptoms similar to those found in people suffering from depression. When they were placed under this social stress, SIRT1 protein levels rose in a part of the brain called the NAc (nucleus accumbens).

Who’s Right: Is Meat Good or Bad for You?

English

A subject on the rise in the last few years and the cause of many debates is the question of whether or not meat is good for you. Reader's Digest's expert Chris Woolston wrote an article on the matter and gathered some factual information from different reports and studies in order to bring some clarity on the topic.

Dogs use same parts of brain to process speech as humans

English

                The article I read is “Dogs use same parts of brain to process speech as humans.” This article is about a research project done on dogs in Budapest. The issue in this text is whether dogs process speech similarly to how humans process speech, or if they don’t. After reading the article I think the conclusion is that they do.

1. Dogs use the left hemisphere of the brain to process words.

2.  Dogs use the right hemisphere of the brain to process intonations.

3. Humans use the left hemisphere of the brain to process words

Empirical and Rational analysis of medical knowledge in the early modern era

Empirical: At first glance the anatomical exercises of Dr. William Harvey … concerning the motion of the heart and blood looks similar to a forty-year old book with a blank hardcover front page. The book is approximately six inches by nine with a thick brown casing. While opening the book the reason for which there is a method to flip a page becomes clear. To reveal the next page a “pancake” technique is instructed to the handler, as to prevent further damage to the book, which predates the industrial revolution.
