Donate your brain to science

Concerned Scientist writes “It’s not science fiction any more, scientists can take advantage
of your spare BRAIN power over the internet to advance science. Two heads are
better than one, and in the case of online, Internet-based psychology experiments,
many thousands of heads can rapidly speed the pace of science. The
American Psychological Society
is currently sponsoring a variety of quick and easy
that range from simple and anonymous surveys to
experiments. Online experiments can provide an entertaining
way to spend a coffee break but can also teach you about the human brain;
each experiment provides a scientific explanation of the study once completed.
Donate your spare brain power today!”

Miss T writes “As you will probably be aware already FOX have officially cancelled James Cameron’s Dark Angel, after only 2 series.
There are many fans of the show currently emailling, writing letters and signing petitions directed to FOX to renew the show for at least one further season or to produce a TV film to finish off the story.
The below petition at the time of writing this email, currently stands at 18,684.
Help save one of the best new sci-fi shows around at the moment, by adding your name to the petition.”
