There’s a swirling, kaleidoscopic, free-associative experience on the edge of your mind. You’ll find it in the space right between awake and asleep, where your meandering consciousness mixes memory and thought with visionary imagery.

You’re probably familiar with both, but you may never have ...

In the absence of evidence, people have come up with plenty of their own rituals, from pre-bedtime routines (chugging water) to strict rules about when to drink which type of alcohol (beer before wine). A new study, however, provides novel insights into hangovers. No matter what type of booze you drink first, it finds, your hangover will be just the same. Hangovers are “one of these things that are not tackled by science a l...
