Viruses Can Kill Bacteria Causing Acne

Myth or Medical Miracle?

Medical miracle! Researchers have found a new way of killing the bacteria that causes breakouts. By isolating a group of viruses from human pores, they are able to attack a specific strain of the bacteria. Unlike antibiotics that can kill all good bacteria, this treatment targets only acne-causing bacteria in skin.

Really? Can a Computer See Our Dreams?

Yes! With the use of new technology, scientists have figured out a way to decode the brain signals that interpret what you see when you sleep. According to a recent report published in the journal Science, fMRI scans have the ability to display the visual images in your brain while you are dreaming. In other words, researchers have discovered a method to see your dreams. They believe that despite whether you are awake or asleep, your brain uses the same mental process to interpret images.

So what is the difference between an MRI and an fMRI? An MRI scans the brain to see what the inside looks like, while an fMRI measures blood flow in different areas of the brain, each of which is responsible for different emotions and functions. Researchers found that the fMRI was approximately 60% accurate in predicting what the sleepers were seeing just before waking up.

Could this be a step towards “mind-reading”? Scientists say there is still a long way to go before they can read specific details of a dreamer’s thoughts. But we think this is interesting. Read this article to learn more and let us know what you think!
