A Brain Parasite Might Be Making Us Angrier - Newsy
 
02:07
Transcript: More and more studies are hinting that our brains might not be completely our own. The parasite Toxoplasma gondii, Toxo for short, may be changing human behavior — perhaps even making us angrier and more aggressive. Toxo is one of those frightening parasites capable of controlling its hosts. It reproduces in the stomachs of cats, and it's always trying to get back inside one. So when an animal, usually a mouse or rat, becomes infected through contact with cat poop, the parasite gets into the rodent's brain and literally rewires it. Basically, it makes its host fall in love with cats so it'll go find one and get eaten. Humans can contract the parasite, too, through eating unwashed vegetables or undercooked meat. And, obviously, through cat poop. But while it can pose problems for pregnant women or people with weakened immune systems, it's generally not considered a threat to human health. That's lucky because Toxo is incredibly common. Around a third of people in the world and more than 1 in 5 in the U.S. are infected, and the vast majority never suffer any ill effects. At least, that's what we thought. Over the past decade, studies have linked Toxo to higher rates of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, suicide attempts, risk taking, impulsiveness and now, aggression. A recent study found people with the parasite score higher on anger and aggression tests, and people with anger disorders are twice as likely to have the parasite than you'd expect from chance alone. What does all of this mean? Well, it's too early to say. None of the studies so far are considered proof that Toxo is driving changes in human behavior. Its effects might be overhyped due to its creepiness. But because it's so common, if infection really does raise the risk of mental illness even slightly, that could translate to tens of millions of cases.

Synthetic Life Has Been Streamlined And Is Ready To Be Put To Work - Newsy
 
02:18
Transcript: In 2010, researchers at the J. Craig Venter Institute announced they'd created a bacteria that runs entirely on lab-made DNA — the world's first synthetic life-form. More than five years later later, they've streamlined, stripped down and organized that life-form, and are ready to turn it into a tiny factory. The team's 2010 announcement made headlines around the world. "This is the first self-replicating species that we've had on the planet whose parent is a computer," Venter said. But creating a life-form entirely programmed by humans was also seen as kind of scary. "This has enormous promise and enormous peril," said Paul Wolpe of the Emory Center for Ethics. "This story reminds me of 'Jurassic Park,' when all the dinosaurs got out and ran amok," Fox News's Jenna Lee said. But the process of making DNA in a lab has only gotten easier since then. Some of those same researchers now sell DNA-printing machines. The plan, though, has always been to strip down a genome to its bare essentials, cutting out every piece of unnecessary DNA. That would serve two goals: helping scientists learn more about how life works and taking the first steps to build custom bacteria. On the first point, it turns out we don't know life nearly as well as we thought. A viable life-form needs at least 473 genes. That's way higher than scientists predicted, and they still aren't sure what a third of those genes do. The team says even if this research only shows us how little we know, it would still be worth it. But they don't intend to stop there. They want to put this streamlined life-form to work. Bacteria are great at taking one compound and turning it into another. They're little chemistry labs, and many scientists believe using carefully built bacteria can solve a lot of the world's problems. Bacteria can turn switch grass into biofuel as easily as brewing beer. They create all kinds of medicines and can even generate electricity. But a stripped-down life-form can do all of that with a lot of advantages: You can make sure none of your ingredients go to waste, control mutations and, most importantly, design the genome from scratch to do exactly what you want. The researchers also said their stripped-down bacteria can give scientists clues to the origins of life. It apparently behaves how scientists think some of the world's first life-forms did.

Our Attention Span Is Less Than That Of A ... Oh, Look!
 
02:04
Microsoft Canada found humans' attention spans are now less than the nine second attention span of goldfish. Follow Katherine Biek: http://www.twitter.com/KatherineBiek See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: A new study from Microsoft found our memories are actually worse than that of Dory. "I forget things almost instantly. It runs in my family," Dory said in the movie "Finding Nemo." OK, so it actually said worse than a goldfish, but we couldn't find any cute animated goldfish to open on. Anyway ... what were we talking about? Oh, yeah. According to Microsoft Canada, the average human attention span in 2000 was 12 seconds. In 2013, it was eight seconds. The attention span of a goldfish? Nine seconds. That's kind embarrassing on our end, dontcha think? And we did it to ourselves. The short attention span is the fault of man-made machines ... technology! The study broke attention span down into three categories: Sustained, which is prolonged focus, Selective, which is avoiding distraction and Alternating, which is switching between different tasks. The first part of the study was a survey of 2,000 Canadians, the next part was neurological research with 112 Canadian participants. It found four top factors that impact attention: Media consumption, social media usage, technology adoption rate and multi-screening behavior. No surprise, long term focus "erodes" (that's their word, not ours) with the more screen-time and social media usage. Guess we can all just blame Facebook, right? But there could be a silver lining in all of this. Something we humans have that goldfish don't. And it kind of sounds like a super power. Our brains can produce BURSTS! Neurological readings produced during the study found higher usage of social media increased "short bursts of high attention." Kind of like a super ultra-focus power that only comes in short waves. Neato peato. But we're gonna kill your buzz. The study found that overall, "digital lifestyles have a negative impact on prolonged focus." But don't worry, you'll probably forget that soon enough. Or, maybe you haven't even made it this far into the video. As a Time article notes, just congratulate yourself for making it this far. The study did find those with "digital lifestyles," are better at processing information at once. So, there's that. Oh, look!

The High-Tech Tools Scientists Use To Track Wild Animals
 
01:46
A recent paper in the journal Science says high-tech tools have brought us into a "golden age" of scientific animal-tracking. Follow Sebastian Martinez: http://www.twitter.com/SebastianSings See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: Science in recent years has seen an explosion of wildlife tracking-devices that are enabling new insights and scientific breakthroughs. (Video via National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) That's the thesis of a recent paper in the journal Science, which argues tracking is essential in understanding how animals are reacting to the slew of environmental threats they face. (Video via Texas Parks and Wildlife) But different animals require different tracking devices, and as the technology develops, those devices are getting increasingly specialized. For birds and flying mammals, geolocators often take the form of a little solar-powered harness, which is fitted to the back of the animal and can weigh as little as half a gram. (Video via SongbirdSOS Productions) To collect data in the past, most of those geolocators had to be retrieved through capture, but an increasing number are able to transmit data remotely, which enables scientists to track a bird over its entire lifespan. (Video via Smithsonian National Zoological Park, Untamed Science) For large mammals, like this mountain lion, collars are the preferred tracking device. But, beyond tracking where they go, a lot of these collars can also monitor the cats' metabolism and behavior, among other things. (Video via National Science Foundation) Some trackers go even further — with one group of researchers using a miniature EEG cap to study how sloths sleep in the wilderness. Other devices let us take a more literal look at the lives of wild animals, with camera-fitted collars giving us, in this case, a bear's eye view of the wilderness. (Video via Missouri Department of Conservation) Beyond learning about animals themselves, the researchers argue these advances allow scientists to use wild animals as sensors to monitor the changing planet: (Video via World Wide Fund for Nature) "Recent examples include the monitoring of arctic temperatures and vegetation changes during climate change and documenting ocean currents, and in the future may allow for the estimation of altitudinal wind profiles based on bird flight parameters." More broadly, the researchers argue, tracking wildlife is important in understanding the unpredictable ways animals adapt to that changing planet — and a vital tool for ecology in the future.
