Brain Determines Abillity To Sleep Through Noise



According to a small study, the brains of people who can sleep through the night undisturbed may be better wired to block out noise.

Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston tracked brain waves among 12 healthy individuals using electroencephalography (EEG) imaging to quantify sleep quality. This was used to observe the differences in brain wave rhythms captured by EEG that changed as people moved through different stages of sleep.

Woodpeckers show possible brain damage

When it comes to headbangers, no Black Sabbath fan alive can outdo a woodpecker. Imagine smacking your head into a tree at 15 miles an hour, as frequently as 20 times a second, thousands of times a day, every day. That's the woodpecker life. Sometimes woodpeckers drill into trees to snack on insects that have bored under the bark. Other times they excavate deep cavities in trees that they nest in. Some species carve cubbyholes in tree trunks to stash acorns. In 2015, an ornithologist filmed a desert woodpecker as it pecked through the skulls of mourning dove chicks to eat their baby brains.

The tongues of woodpeckers wrap around their brains preventing the pounding you would expect.

I don’t know if you can get this. But this is where I read this. I helped a kid research woodpeckers. I love research papers!
