This study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine
A study has shown that a fake surgery is just as good as a real surgery when it comes to reducing pain in patient’s who have a torn knee cartilage.
Researchers in Finland studied two sets of patients (one that received the surgery, and another that was led to believe that it had) and observed no significant differences in improvement between the groups after one year. 
These implications are profound. Millions of people spend ridiculous amount of money for surgeries each year. Are some types of surgery really necessary? Is simply telling someone they are about to go through an effective surgery good enough? 
It’s up to debate but the study’s sample size was relatively small about 146 patients. Further investigation is needed.

I have a masterpost on neuroscience that has a section dedicated to mind over matter interactions, if anyone is interested: MASTERPOST

Jesus fuck, this is in the WSJ, it’s real. It’s real and my life is now complete. Humans are amazing and also fucking morons. The human body is a twat.
I LOVE HUMANS.

Things like these deserve more attention!

Well somebody finally gets it!

Every school should be like mine: four hours a day, three time slots you can attend (morning at 8, afternoon at 12, evening at 5), online classes in case you miss a day, english and math direct instruction, bus stop close by, you can graduate early if you want, you can switch time slots if you need to, and they respect if you have a mental disorder/want to be addressed by a different name or by diff pronouns. You can listen to music, too, and everyone is super chill. Small classes where everyone minds their own business and gets their work done. That is how school should be.
