The boy who may never SMILE again: 11-year-old who battled a cancer so rare doctors are unsure if the nerve damage in his face can be reversed
Daniel Lord (left), from Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, Northumberland, has been through a 'rollercoaster of hell', including surgery and grueling chemotherapy to overcome his disease. His mother, Joanne Broome (pictured together inset), 45, was told that he was only the second person in 25 years to be diagnosed with the form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma on his brain. Doctors now say the sea cadet (right) shows no signs of the disease, but they are unsure if his 'beautiful' grin he once sported will ever return. Because they have never treated another patient with the same cancer, they are unsure if the damage caused to his nerves can be reversed.

EXCLUSIVE: Gemma Coles-Hassan (top right with her daughter Maddison), 34, from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome when she was 11. Despite being told there was a 50 per cent of passing it on, all three of her children - Aydan, 10, Theo, seven, and Maddison, five (bottom right) - were found to be carriers. Only Mrs Coles-Hassan's husband Danny (pictured left as an entire family) isn't plagued by the agonising condition, which weakens the collagen in their bodies.

Like mother, like daughter: Face scanning technology reveals the features you're most likely to inherit from your parents
Researchers from Kings College London studied the features of 1,000 female twins to find parts of the face that are likely to be controlled by genetics. They used their results to create interactive face maps that reveal the features you're most likely to inherit from your parents. Vanessa Paradis (top left) bears more than a passing resemblance to her daughter Lily-Rose Depp (bottom left), young Goldie Hawn, (top middle), shares a similar smile to her daughter (bottom middle) Kate Hudson and supermodel Cindy Crawford (top right) has passed on her stunning facial features to her daughter Kaia Gerber (bottom right).
The brain on acid: Psychedelic drugs push people into a 'higher state of consciousness' never seen before
Neuroscientists from the University of Sussex observed an increase in the complexity of brain activity among people under the influence of psychedelic drugs. Using brain imaging technology they measured the tiny magnetic fields produced in the brain. They found that across all three drugs their measure of consciousness was reliably higher. Images (pictured) created using brain imaging technology show changes in neural signal diversity for people under the influence of LSD. The red areas indicate higher levels of random brain activity which happens when people take psychedelic drugs.

Baby born with 8 LIMBS is flown home after undergoing world first surgery to remove his extra arms and legs
Karam (right), seven months, from Iraq, was flown to India last October for a complex operation to remove his extra arms and legs. It occurred as a result of polymelia - a rare disorder where a conjoined twin does not fully form.

What IS mad hatter disease? The science behind the mercury poisoning mystery at the center of Alice in Wonderland and new hit podcast S-town
What do hatmakers and John McLemore, from the podcast S-town, have in common? They both suffered from mad hatter disease. The neurological disorder is a result of mercury poisoning, a dangerous element used in hatmaking and antique clock restoration. It affects the nervous system and can result in irritability, tremors and suicidal tendencies. Such eccentric behavior was seen in the Mad Hatter from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland (pictured right, played by Johnny Depp in 2010, who told a Los Angeles Times reporter that his orange-haired character was 'poisoned') and in S-town's protagonist, clock restorer John McLemore (pictured left).

Would YOU pay £15,000 for a 'miracle' eye implant that might not make a blind bit of difference? EastEnders star insists surgery saved her sight
EastEnders actress June Brown had been saved from blindness thanks to 'miracle eye surgery'. The 90-year-old (left), who plays Dot Cotton, recently voted Britain's best-loved soap character, revealed in a front-page newspaper report that, thanks to a 60-second implant procedure, 'I can see people's faces and recognise my children again. I can read again'. But an investigation has uncovered evidence that the heavily promoted procedure, which involves an artificial lens being inserted into the eye, left scores of elderly patients with little or no improvement in their sight and significantly out of pocket after paying up to £25,000 for the treatment, which is not available on the NHS. Experts have expressed serious concerns about the procedure, pioneered by ophthalmologist Bobby Qureshi (right) at his Harley Street clinic, the London Eye Hospital.
