Have you ever meet somebody and wonder what makes them tick? The vast study of consciousness has stymied researchers until now. Researchers have discovered a new type of neuron in the brain called the rosehip cell. She’s a bute with all her might and magic.
The study finds that the rosehip cell is a star player in the stream of consciousness. The exciting thing about this study is that it did not translate to rats. In other words these cells for our conscience are unique to humans.
Researchers think the rosehip cells have something to do with “wrangling reality” into the mind. If that’s the case, I wonder how active they are at night, when we hit REM sleep. That’s when our brain takes inventory of the days activities, discards to useless ones, stores the others in our consciousness.
Another fun fact: researchers are looking closely at newly discovered tunnels in the skull. These tunnels connect the brain to the rest of the body. Isn’t that an abstract way of explaining consciousness? They should name these special tunnels rosehip channels.
