This Nifty Infographic Is a Great Introduction to Neuroplasticity and Cognitive Therapy

It’s startling to think about how we’ve got a spaceship millions of miles away ready to rendezvous with Pluto, yet here on Earth there are major aspects of our own anatomy that we’re almost completely ignorant about. We’ve climbed Everest, sent men to the moon, and invented the Internet — but we still don’t know how our brains work. The positive outlook is that many health, science, and research specialists believe we’re on the precipice of some major neuroscientific breakthroughs.

Self-healing concrete will revolutionize building

Although concrete is the most used building material in the world, it has a serious flaw. It can crack with ease under tension.

When these cracks become too large, they in turn lead to corrosion of the steel reinforcement inside, which not only results in an unattractive appearance but also undermines the structure’s integrity. That is why engineers often use a greater amount of steel reinforcement within a concrete structure than needed, in order to prevent loss in integrity through corrosion and cracks. This extra steel has no structural use and is an expensive solution since steel prices are high compared to the cost of concrete. A more labor intensive way to deal with cracks is to repair them, but this can be extremely difficult in underground structures or underwater supports.
