Researchers discovered that the brain could be trained to be more compassionate.
Labrador retriever Maisie is able to detect when 6-year-old diabetic Alena Hughes' blood sugar levels and inform her parents if her condition becomes life threatening.
After a recent report by researchers from Belgium about the usefulness of trained dogs in helping people with excessive daytime sleepiness, there is more evidence to the fact that a dog is a man's best friend. According to a report in Mail Online, Paul McKenzie, 47, who recently slipped into diabetic coma, was saved- thanks to his dog Millie, who was trained to press the panic button. Although Millie was trained to press the panic button only when McKenzie shouted out "alarm," while slipping to coma, he was in no condition to do so.
Most of us know what to do in an emergency. But how do many of us exactly remember the right technique of doing things? A new UCLA psychology study suggests that in most cases, people do not recollect things they may have seen or at least walked by hundreds of times. The researchers, for this study, asked 54 people who worked in the same building, if they remembered where the fire extinguishers were available nearest to their office.
