Join the Story Archaeologists as they dig the first of their somewhat watery trenches, and discover why Bran receives an offer he finds hard to refuse.
The Woman Who Can Will Herself Out Of Her Body | Popular Science
After a class on out-of-body experiences, a psychology graduate student at the University of Ottawa came forward to researchers to say that she could have these voluntarily, usually before sleep. “She appeared surprised that not everyone could experience this,” wrote the scientists in a study describing the case, published in February in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.
To better understand what was going on, the researchers conducted a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study of her brain.
This is amazing. Thank you!
Another worth watching is In the Name of the Fada about an American learning Irish in a year, and exploring the issues surrounding the use of Gaeilge in Ireland.
