Black-light dog engineered by South Korean researchers

Tegon the Beagle isn’t just friendly; he’s got a certain aura about him — literally. A team from Seoul’s National University cloned the unsuspecting pooch with with a certain alteration in his gene sequence, causing him to glow bright green under

On the Uniqueness of Human Cognition

Note: this is an essay I wrote for my Biological Psychology class. We were asked to write specifically on the “evidence that human cognition is unique” and its neurological correlates, and were not asked whether or not human cognition is unique. I mean, of course it
