I figured the first step with that was to figure out why *anything* is satisfying. Since we call a lot of things satisfying, this was harder than I expected. When things are in perfect sync it's satisfying, when things are in perfect order is satisfying, it's satisfying when you are arranging your new living room and then the short square table you have fits perfectly between your two sofas and the surface of the table is flush with both sofa's arm rests. (Fun fact: in Japanese, you just say "feels good" (kimochi ii) for things like this) Unsurprisingly, there's not much research on the concept of "satisfying." Then I started looking into why we find things pleasurable. Jaak Panksepp says that things that are pleasurable are *biologically useful* . So it was even more curious that things seemingly irrelevant to keeping us alive should make us feel good. This video is the result of cobbling a bit of logic with information from books on Satisfaction, neuroscience, 'what the brain finds beautiful' as well as various research papers on the brain. I hope it's satisfying. (If editing videos didn't take so gotham long, this video would be about an hour) I still plan on making a "why oddly satisfying videos are satisfying" video at some point. I'd rather not dig through tiktok for asmr and slime videos just yet so it'll be a little while before that's done --- Link to PDF of Script with Links to sources: https://www.patreon.com/posts/36551819 Warm Thanks to Eliana Vassena (her paper "Overlapping Neural Systems Represent Cognitive Effort and Reward Anticipation" appears at 5:18) she took the time to answer various questions I had about her papers and research.

Study of Cantonese lexical tone shows language evolution possibly linked to genesA research group led by Professor Patrick Chun Man Wong, Stanley Ho Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience of the Department of Linguistics and Modern Languages, recruited more than 400 native speakers of Cantonese for a study. The results show that participants with a specific genotype of the ASPM gene are better at perceiving lexical tone in Cantonese, and those without it may improve their abilities through musical training. The research offers clear evidence for the hypothesis that subtle differences in genetic makeup may form the basis of languages people speak in different regions of the world. In this case, because most Chinese people have an ASPM genotype that favors lexical tone processing, they adopted lexical tone in their language. The findings were recently published in the journal Science Advances.
5 Examples of How Neuroscience is Affecting EducationSpread the loveThe world of educational technology has a lot of facets to consider. One primary focus is the effect of neuroscience on education. To progress and compete globally, we need to use all possible advantages to give our children a leg up. Here are five examples of how neuroscience is affecting education today. Implementation of New Guidelines School districts and teachers are beginning to take note of the influence small changes can have on learning, thanks to breakthroughs in neuroscience. The push for later start times is supported by a recommendation from the CDC to encourage better sleep patterns […]2
Taking a deep look into animalsAdvances in neuroscience research and microscopy: a collaborative project driven by researchers of the Max Perutz Labs Vienna, a joint venture of the University of Vienna and the Medical University of Vienna, and the TU Wien (Vienna) allows researchers to look deep into organs and nervous systems of animals, ranging from squids and worms to fish and salamanders.
How much color do we really see?Color awareness has long been a puzzle for researchers in neuroscience and psychology, who debate over how much color observers really perceive. A study from Dartmouth in collaboration with Amherst College finds that people are aware of surprisingly limited color in their peripheral vision; much of our sense of a colorful visual world is likely constructed by our brain. The findings are published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.1
Neuroscience explains why you're having trouble concentrating during the pandemicBéatrice Pudelko, Université TÉLUQ Fear, anxiety, worry, lack of motivation and difficulty concentrating — students cite all sorts of reasons for opposing distance learning. But are these excuses or real concerns? What does science say? At the beginning of the pandemic, when universities and

Here Are Your Best Travel Photography HacksYou, like me, probably miss the days of taking in the scenery on vacation and figuring out how to best capture it with your camera. But now you’re stuck at home, and your DSLR is gathering dust; your phone’s photo archive is filled with pictures of your cat. We know how it is. But hey, this is the perfect time to brush up on your photography skills. Maybe photos of your backyard azaleas won’t be as exciting as that time you captured the Taj Mahal at sunset, but what you learn now can help you once travel is back in full swing. (And if you just up the contrast on that latest cat portrait? High drama.)

Biomechanical analyses and computer simulations reveal the Venus flytrap snapping mechanismsThe Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) takes only 100 milliseconds to trap its prey. Once their leaves, which have been transformed into snap traps, have closed, insects can no longer escape. Using biomechanical experiments and virtual Venus flytraps a team from Freiburg Botanical Garden and the University of Stuttgart has analyzed in detail how the lobes of the trap move. Freiburg biologists Dr. Anna Westermeier, Max Mylo, Prof. Dr. Thomas Speck and Dr. Simon Poppinga and Stuttgart structural engineer Renate Sachse and Prof. Dr. Manfred Bischoff show that the trap of the carnivorous plant is under mechanical prestress. In addition, its three tissue layers of each lobe have to deform according to a special pattern. The team has published its results in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Digging Up Regolith: Why Mining the Moon Seems More Possible Than EverFor decades, the idea of mining the moon was pure science fiction for most and a wild concept for even the most ardent believers. Now technical advances and rare political support are making it an actual possibility.
