If you look at the brain it looks like a fleshy folds and bulges with no features, but it is actually grouped into invisible territories. Each has its own specialized functions, like some neurons become active when you smell something, others when you see colors or when you are engaged in activity.
The new and updated brain map described in a study published on July 20, 2016 on Nature.com http://nature.com/articles/doi:10.1038/nature18933 shows and discussed detailed part of the brain that deals with human senses, motion, problem solving and emotional regulation. That part of the brain is named cerebral cortex, and it’s the brain’s outer layer of nerve tissue. Experts called the research a milestone in neuroscience it shows 97 previously unknown regions which is revolutionary. It is a glimpse into the inner working of the brain.
Scientists will be able to use this new study to understand virtually every aspect of the brain, from its development from birth to adulthood and how it can be corrupted by diseases like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia.
The updated brain map could help neuroscientists, neurosurgeons, and neurologists in their work and research.

The diet and nutrition company Herbalife has been hit by the Federal Trade Commission with a $200 million fine and ordered them to restructure their business after allegations of “unfair and deceptive practices.”
The Cayman Islands company agreed to fully restructure its U.S. business operations and pay a $200 million settlement over allegations that it deceived consumers, but it avoided more serious charges that it was operating as a pyramid scheme.
The FTC said that the settlement is a “significant law enforcement action,” but the company claimed it as a victory in its fight against claims it was operating a pyramid-style scheme.
“The company promised people a dream – a chance to change their lives, quit their jobs and gain financial freedom,” FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez told reporters, “but the FTC has charged that this wasn’t true.”
“Herbalife is going to have to start operating legitimately, making only truthful claims about how much money its members are likely to make, and it will have to compensate consumers for the losses they have suffered as a result of what we charge are unfair and deceptive practices," she added.
The company was charged for deceiving thousands of people into believing they could make money as “distributors,” or salespeople, of Herbalife products when the only real money was actually in buying the products themselves and then recruiting other salespeople to do the actual selling.
Also there are a lot of Herbalife independent distributors that promises medical miracle that is simply untrue despite company policies that prevents them from doing so. A news reporter who was wearing a hidden camera was told by a Herbalife distributor that a woman with a brain tumor became symptom free after starting on Herbalife products.
“She used to shake like this because she lost control of her motor skills to the tumor and she said part of her cerebellum was deteriorated,” he said. “If you see her now, she’s like one of us here... Whatever it is that the product did, it helped her a lot.”

A new study shows that people who drink less water has more chances to be obese. The average water consumption in the U.S. about 4 cups a day which is not enough. While, despite a huge focus and support diet and physical activity the country is still experiencing increasing obesity rates.
Some researchers link low water consumption to obesity. In a new study published in the Annals of Family Medicine, experts used latest data from about 9,500 adults enrolled in the National Health and Nutrition Examination survey (NHANES), a nationally representative sample of what Americans are eating. The data also contain information on how hydrated the subjects are by measuring the concentration of their urine.
“There’s so much focus on food and exercise, but so much more than just food and exercise goes into weight,” says Dr. Tammy Chang, assistant professor in the department of family medicine at the University of Michigan medical school.
About 33% of the people who took part in the study were not taking enough water. The study also found a link between dehydration and obesity. People who don't drink enough water had higher BMIs than those who do.
Of course those who are obese need more water than people who have smaller bodies, making the hydration threshold potentially harder to attain. People who are obese eat less and take fewer calories when they drink water before a meal than if they eat it without water.
So how will you know if you are well hydrated? Dr. Tammy Chang said that the most reliable way to check it is through the color of your urine. Light colored urine almost the same color of water means that you are well hydrated. If it’s dark, you need to drink more water.
You can also take water and be hydrated by eating fresh fruits and vegetables which contains a lot of water. A cup of sliced radishes contains about 120ml of water, while a 2-cup serving of watermelon or 1 cucumber contains more than a cup of water.
“They’re good for you because of their nutritional value, while you’re improving your hydration as well,” Chang says.
However, the link between hydration and obesity needs more study. “More studies are needed to understand the directionality,” Chang says. “But staying hydrated is good for you no matter what.”
