Hey! I’m 18 and in college. I hope to become a neuroscientist who figures out the science behind the human mind. Don’t take my paranormal/creepy section seriously, but take my science and world section seriously! I hope you enjoy and most importantly learn something. Thank you for your love and support. Tag sixpenceee in a post for my attention! Arrows (navigation) are at the top in that white box. My instagram is @sixpenceee

Metalosis Maligna is a fake disease invented by award-winning Dutch filmmaker Floris Kaayk.

According to the mockumentary, Metalosis Maligna occurs when a metal implant has a bad interaction with human body tissues, causing the metal to grow tendrils that eventually puncture the skin from within and destroy it.

I was skimming through the video at first not knowing it was a mockumentary and landed on the part of the man in bed. I nearly died.

DO YOUR BEST TO EXPLAIN YOUR ENTIRE KNOWLEDGE OF NEUROSCIENCE IN A FEW SHORT PARAGRAPHS

Can you tell me exactly what being a neuroscientist entails? Ever since I was younger I've wanted to be a psychiatrist but also a neurologist and maybe I might want to change and be a neuroscientist but nobody can really give me specifics of what neuroscientists do.

Well there’s different branches: cognitive, behavioral, developmental, clinical, molecular

You can do an MD or a phD. 

With an MD you can be a doctor and have a variety of options: psychiatry, brain tumors, brain brain brain

With a pHD you can do research on any of the topics that interest you and generally be a professor or work in a private lab owned by a company 

If you are a professor usually you get to do whatever research you want but you also have to teach, if it’s for a company then you have to do what they tell you.

If you are looking for a good book to read. I recommend this one. 
This entire book was written by a man whose stroke plunged him into a 21 day coma. He awakened to find himself fully paralyzed except for one eye and a part of his head. He survived an entire month, enough to publish an entire book. 
How did he do this?
He dictated his book one character at a time by blinking his left eyelid while an assistant recited letters. 
200,000 blinks tells his entire story. He died 3 days after the book was published due to pneumonia. 

holy shit

People are amazing
There is also a movie about this

Koko the gorilla, is a female gorilla who is able to understand more than 1000 signs on the the American Sign Language system and over 2000 words of spoken English. 

Koko had a pet kitten, which she received on her birthday on July 1984. It was noted that Koko cared for that kitten as if it were a little baby gorilla. The kitten one day escaped from Koko’s cage and was hit by a car.

When she was told of what happened, this is how she responded.

It was also noted that afterwards she made weeping sounds like a human.

The Ring: Cursed Video Tape

According to the plot anyone who watches the tape is cursed and has a week to copy the tape and show it to someone else, otherwise they will be killed by Samara’s ghost.

The tape’s images are a playback on Samara’s life. Samara was pushed down a well by her adoptive mother, Anna Morgan,spending seven days trying to escape but died on the seventh, using her nensha powers (the power to burn photographic images from ones mind to a film tape) to make the tape, out of vengeance and a desire to be found.

This movie was truly iconic.

And if you missed or want to watch it again, here you go

is there some kind of psychology behind that? (no, you can't post anything without questions about the background)

Lol!

You are referring to this post:

Well, I do know that people do tend to internalize the beliefs of others. 

For example, there was experiment where students were given a card describing their substitute professor.

One half got a card saying “He is … people say he’s a bit COLD…”

And the other half “He is … people say he’s a bit WARM…”

Just based on that one word, the students had drastic opinions over him. The “cold” side of the classroom basically said he sucks, and that they would never want to have him as an actual professor, while the “warm” side said he was great and friendly.
