A shocking number of birds are in trouble | Ars Technica

"Every year around the world, amateur birdwatchers record millions of sightings in databases that are available for analysis. All that monitoring has revealed some sobering trends.

Deep-brain stimulation may strengthen your memories while you sleep | Inverse

"...a group of researchers led by the University of California, Los Angeles Health found direct physiological evidence of exactly how the hippocampus and neocortex partner up to encode and reinforce memories during the third stage of non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep called deep or slow-wave sleep. These scientists also found that when you zap your brain during this phase with what's called deep-brain stimulation, the boost in electricity also appears to boost memory."
