The second dimension, notes Giordano, the director of the Institute for Biodefense Research in Washington D.is "more of an indirect or implicit approach," that employs a variety of nefarious methods "to affect individual and collective perceptions, beliefs, attitudes, values, and behaviors." This can involve the use of "various signs and symbols, content, constructs and contexts of narrative, and even direct environmental and ecological manipulation," says Giordano, who has dedicated an inordinate amount of time to researching and discussing the future of cognitive warfare.

When you visit the doctor or have a hospital stay, you and your patient data become elements in a vast, highly complex digital technology ecosystem. This is because you (as the patient) generate enormous volumes of data which is stored and analyzed across interconnected systems. The goal of all of this is improved health care outcomes, but the current health care digital landscape also represents a critical cyberattack surface.

Ancient viruses that infected vertebrates hundreds of millions of years ago played a pivotal role in the evolution of our advanced brains and large bodies, a study said Thursday. The research, published in the journal Cell, examined the origins of myelin, an insulating layer of fatty tissue that forms around nerves and allows electrical impulses to travel faster.

A recent study has brought to light an interesting link between weight loss surgery and the health of our brains. In the United States, obesity is becoming more common, and it's expected that half of all adults will be affected by it in the next decade. This is worrying because being overweight is connected to problems with brain functions and even dementia, which is when people lose their memory and other thinking abilities as they get older.
