New insight into how the brain makes memories April 28, 2015 [image: filapodia] Linked to autism and Alzheimer’s disease Every time you make a memory, somewhere in your brain a tiny filament called a dendritic spine reaches out from one neuron and forms an electrochemical connection to a neighboring neuron. Now a team of biologists at Vanderbilt University has discovered more about how these connections are formed at the molecular and cellular level.

Scientists discover key driver of human aging May 1, 2015 [image: Salk Institute researchers discovered that a protein mutated in the premature aging disorder, Werner syndrome, plays a key role in stabilizing heterochromatin, a tightly packaged form of DNA. More generally, the findings suggest that heterochromatin disorganization may be a key driver of aging. This image shows normal human cells (left) and genetically modified cells developed by the Salk scientists to model Werner syndrome (right), which showed signs of aging, including their large size.

Porn data: visualising fetish space

Aloyzio AchuttiemAMICOR - Há um dia
Fetish space What are the most expensive kinks? Is porn keeping track with inflation, and is it possible to map ‘fetish-space’? Porn metadata could help find the answers to these and many other questions about human sexuality. An attempt to visualise ‘fetish-space’. Categories are linked by the number of times they appear together in Clips4Sale studios, and larger circles represent categories with more clips. Photograph: Martin Robbins Porn is one of the biggest yet worst-covered topics in popular discourse. It’s a multi-billion dollar industry that sits at the heart of human sex... mais »

*Selecionado pela AMICOR Maria Inês Reinert Azambuja*Brain disorders? Precisely Mental disorders represent a public health challenge of staggering proportions. In the most recent Global Burden of Disease study, mental and substance abuse disorders constitute the leading source of years lost to disability from all medical causes (*1*). The World Health Organization estimates over 800,000 suicides each year globally, nearly all of which are a consequence of a mental disorder (*2*). These high morbidity and mortality figures speak to the potential for overall health gains if mental dis... mais »
