Violência e Entropia Aloyzio Achutti. Médico. (Artigo que enviei há uma semana para ZH e que não foi publicdo) A violência sem a modulação da racionalidade é no mínimo um desperdício de tempo e de energia e, geralmente ocasiona danos irreparáveis e com potenciais consequências tardias. Ação e reação, além de um principio físico pode ser também extendido à psicologia, mas a inteligência e a razão precisam intermediar o processo e evitar danos maiores, antes que um ou os dois contendores se destruam. Também quando as agressões forem mais frequentes, como nos dias atuais de criminalidade ... mais »

On Being Too Much for Ourselves: Psychoanalyst Adam Phillips on Balance and the Necessary Excesses of Life *"Something is always born of excess,"*Anaïs Nin wrote in her diary in June of 1945 as she contemplated the value of emotional excess, adding: *"Great art was born of great terrors, great loneliness, great inhibitions, instabilities, and it always balances them."* And yet our compulsive pursuit of balance – take, for instance, the tyrannical notion of work/life balance – is predicated on eradicating "excess," pitting it as a counterpoint rather than a complement to equilibrium a... mais »

A new computational model based on data from rodent brains shows that “Go” and “No-Go” signals compete in the brain, originating from the nerve cells in the striatum – a part of brain that plays a crucial role in decision making, learning and various motor functions. But, the deck is stacked against the Go neurons, which... mais »

neurosciencestuff New insights could result in changes to the therapeutic strategy to combat Alzheimer’s A typical characteristic of the brain of an Alzheimer sufferer is the presence of insoluble Tau protein aggregates. Scientists at VIB, KU Leuven and Janssen Pharmaceutica have demonstrated that the distribution of these aggregates through the brain is facilitated by synaptic connections between brain cells. This news is highly significant because the focus is increasingly on repairing synaptic connections as a therapeutic strategy in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.... mais »
