Study: When the eyes move, so do the eardrums

Study: When the eyes move, so do the eardrums

Science
Jan. 23 (UPI) -- New research shows the eyes and ears are both part of an integrated motor control system in the brain.When researchers at Duke University measured the movements of eyes and eardrums in test subjects, they found eardrum vibrations proceeded the movement of the eyes, even as subjects' heads remained still."It's like the brain is saying, 'I'm going to move the eyes, I better tell the eardrums, too,'" Jennifer Groh, a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Duke, said in a news release.Groh and her colleagues published their findings this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.But while it's apparent the brain has organized sight and sound in a way that prioritized synchronization, it's not clear exactly how the two systems are integrated.

NASA bumps astronaut off space station flight in rare move

Technology
NASA has bumped an astronaut off an upcoming spaceflight, a rare move for the space agency so close to launch. Astronaut Jeanette Epps was supposed to rocket away in early June, and would have been the first African-American to live on the International Space Station. Late Thursday, NASA announced it was pulling Epps off the mission but didn't disclose why. Astronauts have been removed from missions in the past, mostly for health reasons. Epps, an engineer, will be considered for future space missions, according to NASA. She's been replaced by her backup, Serena Aunon-Chancellor, a doctor. Both were chosen as astronauts in 2009. Epps is returning to Houston from Russia, where she'd been training to fly to the space station with a German and Russian. NASA spokeswoman Brandi Dean said Friday...

North Korea's Olympic move a chance for U.S. talks, analyst says

World
NEW YORK, Jan. 18 (UPI) --North Korea is pursuing a dangerous path of nuclear weapons development, but that does not mean the United States should dismiss an opportunity to deescalate tensions during the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, a U.S. analyst said Wednesday.Speaking before members of the Harvard Business School Club of New York, Suzanne DiMaggio, a senior fellow with New America who recently met with North Korean officials in Moscow, said Kim Jong Un's overtures for reconciliation are not to be ignored as tensions recede on the peninsula."I think the Olympics actually offers an opportunity for both sides to scale back on the rhetoric," she said, referring to the U.S. and North Korean governments. "We now have a nearly two-month Winter Olympic pause.""We must use that pause to pur...
