Thanks for the update @Autumn23, That's seriously cool. Neuroscience is advancing so fast I'm actually beginning to hope that my dreams of being able to directly upload information into my head is going to come true during our lifetime.
In other (slightly more outdated) brain-news, we've started being able to grow brains in the lab! They're still a ways-off from the real thing, but the idea of having brain-jars like in Futurama isn't so crazy anymore.

Thanks to a new non-invasive neural electrode designed by researchers at the University of Melbourne, bionic-assisted technokinesis may be a reality in less than 6 years.
In less techno-babbley terms: HOLY CRAP WE'LL BE ABLE TO MOVE STUFF WITH OUR BRAINS, YOU GUYS.

Soooooo cats can infect humans with a parasite called Toxoplasma gondii........ which has been associated mental disorders including bi polar and schizophrenia! According to this article, 50% of the global population may be infected!!!
So basically, CATS ARE EVIL!!!!!

They found a fully preserved freakin feathery dinosaur tail in an amber!!!! Article here.
Scientists believe it belonged to a juvenile coelurosaur, a bird-like carnivorous dino from the Cretaceous era.
I find this incredible since it was being sold at a market labelled as plant material.
My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ
