Caríssimos *AMICOR,* Hoje, 17 de maio, chegamos à maioridade, a semelhança da contagem que se faz quando se considera a duração da vida de uma pessoa. Aqueles que nos acompanham desde o início devem lembrar (eramos pouco mais de vinte colegas com endereço eletrônico, dos mais de cinquenta que participaram do encontro): trocávamos e-mails para corrigir e chegar à formulação final da *Declaração de Gramado*, documento do *Primeiro Seminário de Brasileiro de dez dias sobre Epidemiologia Cardiovascular e Prevenção*, realizado de 01 a 10 de maio de 1997. O seminário fora dirigido pelo *Pro... mais »

Ray Kurzweil: can you read 100 million web pages in a few seconds, your robot assistant will [image: Big Think - A1] *Source:* *Big Think* — May 11, 2015 Big Think | Ray Kurzweil has made some strong statements and bold predictions here at Big Think. Among them is the fusion between digital technology and the human body in an event called the singularity, allowing an essentially cloud based consciousness to arise — though hopefully a less aggressive one than the Borg’s.

3D reconstruction of neuronal networks uncovers hidden organizational principles of sensory cortex May 11, 2015 [image: Credit: Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience] Most cortical circuitry interconnects neurons across cortical columns, rather than within An international research team has reconstructed anatomically realistic 3D models of cortical columns of the rat brain, providing unprecedented insight into how neurons in the elementary functional units of the sensory cortex called cortical columns are interconnected. The models suggest that cortical circuitry interconnect... mais »

*Mediterranean diet plus olive oil or nuts improves cognitive function* May 13, 2015 [image: (credit: iStock)] Supplementing the plant-based Mediterranean diet with antioxidant-rich extra virgin olive oil or mixed nuts has been associated with improved cognitive function in a study of older adults in Spain, according to an open-access article published online by JAMA Internal Medicine. Previous research suggests following a Mediterranean diet may be associated with better cognitive function and a … more…

New evidence that electrical stimulation accelerates wound healing May 15, 2015 [image: After 10 days, the control would on the left and the ES treated on the right. (Credit: The University of Manchester)] The most detailed study to date of skin wound healing, conducted by University of Manchester scientists with 40 volunteers, has provided new evidence that electrical stimulation accelerates wound healing. In the new research, half-centimeter harmless wounds were created on each upper arm of the volunteers. One wound was left to heal normally, while the other … more…

New post on *Mind Hacks*A less hysterical reactionby vaughanbell [image: CC Licensed photo by Flickr user Les Black. Click for source.]There's a fascinating article in *The Guardian* about one of the least understood aspects of human nature: experiences like blindness, paralysis and seizures that seem to mimic gross damage to the nervous system but aren't explained by it. People can experience profound blindness, for example, but have no detectable damage to their visual system. These difficulties have various names: conversion disorder, hysteria, dissociative disorder, medically unex... mais »

The Brain Cells behind a Sense of Direction Goal-direction cells add to Nobel Prize–winning discoveries to reveal our internal navigation system By Simon Makin | Apr 9, 2015 *ISTOCKPHOTO* After wandering around an unfamiliar part of town, can you sense which direction to travel to get back to the subway or your car? If so, you can thank your entorhinal cortex, a brain area recently identified as being responsible for our sense of direction. Variation in the signals in this area might even explain why some people are better navigators than others./.../

Immune System Genes May Change With the Seasons: StudyAltered activity could explain why some diseases are worse in some months than others, researchers say By Robert Preidt Tuesday, May 12, 2015 [image: HealthDay news image] TUESDAY, May 12, 2015 (HealthDay News) -- When the seasons change, your immune system response may also change, British researchers report. These findings might explain why conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and heart disease are worse in the winter than in the summer, the new study finds.

SUPER TYPHOID STRAIN IS SPREADING WORLDWIDE H58 knows its way around drugs. Normal typhoid fever responds well to antibiotics, but researchers say this 25-year-old strain doesn’t, and it’s quickly becoming the dominant form of the disease. Some 47 percent of samples collected over two decades were attributed to it. And while there are vaccines, they’re expensive and not often used in poorer countries. Scientists admit that multi-drug-resistant typhoid is here to stay, and they recommend better global tracking in order to contain it. NYDN, The Mirror

Invaluable lessons about what a “good death” might look like SHOSHANA UNGERLEIDER, MD | PHYSICIAN | MAY 7, 2015 I became a doctor because I was excited by the idea of helping people every day. Following a lifelong fascination with science, I found myself in medical school, surrounded by bright classmates. We bonded over late night study sessions at the library and kegs of beer after each exam. As all medical students do, we memorized the 640 skeletal muscles that make up the human body, learned the rare vitamin deficiencies that afflict those in third world count... mais »
