Researchers from MIT and several European universities have shown that the human version of a gene called Foxp2 makes it easier to transform new experiences into routine procedures. When they engineered mice to express humanized Foxp2, the mice learned to run a maze much more quickly than normal mice.
All animal species communicate with each other, but humans have a unique ability to generate and comprehend language. Foxp2 is one of several genes that scientists believe may have contributed to the development of these linguistic skills. The gene was first identified in a group of family members who had severe difficulties in speaking and understanding speech, and who were found to carry a mutated version of the Foxp2 gene
Using another type of maze called a cross-maze, Schreiweis and her MIT colleagues were able to test the mice’s ability in each of type of memory alone, as well as the interaction of the two types. They found that the mice with humanized Foxp2 performed the same as normal mice when just one type of memory was needed, but their performance was superior when the learning task required them to convert declarative memories into habitual routines. The key finding was therefore that the humanized Foxp2 gene makes it easier to turn mindful actions into behavioral routines.
i am supremely pleased with this, it’s not even that these are my perfect fancasts for james and lily, but they’re a fuckload better than the movies, THEY DIED YOUNG, THAT WAS PART OF THE WHOLE TRAGEDY OF IT, THEY DIDN’T DIE IN THEIR EARLY FORTIES AFTER HAVING LIVED MOST OF THEIR WHOLE LIFE AND THEN FINALLY SETTLING DOWN TO HAVE A KID, oh no i made myself sad, but sigh, i have a lot of feelings about the marauders and lily (via laurellas)
It’s the mirror Erised though. Remember what it means? It doesn’t show natural aging progression or lack thereof. It shows what Harry WANTED. He wanted a normal family. He didn’t really know what his parents looked like in grand detail. And he certainly wasn’t picturing them immediately before their death. Having them be aged suggests that they lived and aged as he grew. It supports his desire to have a normal family stand beside him, to be one of the kids who was put on the train by his real parents, to be one of the kids receiving letters from home. They might not have been in their early forties, but it would make no sense for them to be pictured in their 20s either. The fantasy here is that they lived on.
fauxsolのコメント： Where are you watching it? I would like to as well.
Currently I’m watching it on here. I watched SNK from this site too. Subs though. Don’t know which you prefer.
that last one was actually just an excuse to draw water
and damn, did i draw that water
i drew it GOOD
so I’m watching gay swimming anime
and let me tell you about them feels about stupid half-naked boys
it’s actually not depressing much at all, it’s really lighthearted, and I like all the characters, and aahhhhhh
you know what i still don’t get? being fashionably late
when i was growing up it was always ‘be there on time’ and on time is the time the host has specified. none of this ‘the party starts at 8 but they really mean 9’ nonsense. ’fashionably late’ meant ‘i couldn’t be bothered to show up when you asked me to’.
now sometimes i show up later cause i know that’s how a lot of people operate, but i don’t like it. why? is it a cultural thing? i don’t get it.
yeah, I pretty much think the same thing. Or rather, I am befuddled by it.
I always arrive on time or early, and just deal with being the only one there. Some people operate differently I guess? I don’t get it.
I actually like the Asexual!Haru idea and thought to put him in a shirt design I’ve had in my head. I added Gou too ‘cause headcanon is that she’s Aromantic which explains why she hasn’t shown interest in anyone beyond aesthetic c:
Anyway! Done with quick doodle, back to work UuU
I completely support these headcanons, I love Haru and Gou!
i was going to make this a bit cleaner, but I actually like the sketchy look a lot better
when your gears fail, hitch a ride on a titan…?
I just find it really amazing how everyone prefers those different tastes
Honestly, it’s impossible for me, but if that’s what rows your boat, you… row… that boat.
I’ve put together a simple chart that explains the various ways you should and shouldn’t summon a waiter over to your table, and the service you’re likely to receive accordingly.
Because if one more middle aged, obnoxious asshole goes “hey you!” and snaps their fingers at me, I WILL snap said person’s neck.
I waitressed my way through college and one night this guy yells at me “Oi! you with the tits!” and my co-worker Matthew walked up to him and said “yes?”
This is pretty accurate, but what the fuck is wrong with ‘excuse me’? It depends on how it’s said, of course, but if the person is legitimately kind, then there’s nothing wrong with it.
Also, maybe it’s just me, but don’t assume a serviceperson is ok with you calling them by their name. For me, having someone I don’t know using my first name is extremely creepy, even if they’re trying to be familiar and nice. I’m pretty sure the nametags are there to identify us, not because we want them to be.

OkaY, FLAVORED green tea is one thing. That I can maybe see someone pulling
